The following study has been done to study the effect of proficiency in English on the performance of engineering students in group discussion. The hypothesis was framed that more the student’s proficiency in English, better will be their ability to perform in group discussion. The first year students of Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology were taken as respondents. Group discussion sheets were prepared and every student was marked by three examiners on six dimensions, each dimension consisting of five marks each. Class test marks of the same students were also collected. Correlation between group discussion marks and class test marks were calculated. The result showed that the students who have good proficiency in English have good self-efficacy and also performs well in group discussion.
