Sir,

I have been recommended in the UES/SSC July 2010 SSB batch . I would like to know my chances of making it into the merit list and also my chance of being a naval architect since it was my first preference. Since it is a UES entrance scheme will the take in be less. Please give me your inputs about UES and my chances.

Hi.. First of all, very interesting blog. It stands out as one that speaks sense and one which is committed to a really worthy cause.

I have applied for the logistical cadre in the Indian Navy and was wondering what the cut off marks for the U.G requirement usually is. You have mentioned 60 percent. Is this a “blanket” sort of cut off for all ug courses or is it specific to the applications (percentile based). Can it be said that if you have a cut off of 60% +, you are sure of getting a call?.

It would be great to hear from you regarding this.

Thank you sir.

3 Kumar June 11, 2010 at 3:46 am

60% is the minimum mark less than which you can not even apply for the cadre…this is not a cut off mark….the cut off mark may be more ,it is generally based on the number of applications that they receive. hope i answered your query!

its my 2nd atempt in ssb n.d.a .. last time i got conferenced out.. is it that i wil get disadvantageous over freshers?

5 jai October 25, 2010 at 11:34 am

sir ,

i am pursuing my BE in production engineering from bits pilani. Does that completely rule out my possibility of joining the indian navy’s technical branch with a dolphin badge on my chest ?

p.s. thank you for the wonderful blog !

Reply

6 Kumar October 25, 2010 at 12:09 pm

no…you may clear the cds exam and join the general service and then opt for submarine arm..the chance of direct entry for submarine cadre is nil for production engineering

7 jai October 25, 2010 at 11:37 am

oops ! sorry for the 2nd post

8 jai October 25, 2010 at 4:48 pm

sir,
could you please elaborate on how one becomes a MARCO . can officers serving in the technical branch of the navy , recruited through UPSC (ssb) apply for the same ?
what is the level of fitness required , how are they ranked and how are the promotions ?

Sir,

I am enrolled in a 5 year dual degree course (msc hons. biological sciences and BE hons production engineering) . I’ll be graduating in december 2013 at the age of 24 1/2 years( due to DISCIPLINARY steps taken by the institute , the duration of my program has been extended to 5 1/2 years).

i ranked decently in jee , joined iit roorkee , but chose to pursue duel degree program at bits pilani. i should pass out with a good cgpa (much above the required minimum). i am active in sports and play football regularly , go for occasional swims , and gym workouts. I have been fairly active in other co curricular activities as well.

Now , Sir , with such a profile ( that puts me at an obvious disadvantage ) should i even consider preparing for ssb . i know it will be difficult for me to impress the ssb , but honestly , how difficult will it be ?

do i stand a chance ? Any chance at all ?

Reply

11 Kumar October 29, 2010 at 11:47 am

its no big deal..all of us tend to go out of track in some point of life..the wise identify it and change their route..now since you have identified your mistakes and you are repenting for it ,i dont find any reason why the ssb will put you down..go ahead and face the board and convey the message that i have inferred from your message…

12 jai October 30, 2010 at 8:47 am

Thank you , Sir !

Hello sir,
shall i know the nature of job for the post education officer? and what is
the difference between short term service and permanent service?

Reply

14 Kumar November 28, 2010 at 10:16 am

education officers have to teach sailors and officers on various subjects based on their expertise in bases…the difference is short commission officer cannot continue more than 14 years….a permanent commission officer cannot leave before 20 years…ssc officers do not get pension after they leave…but pc officers get pension and other benefits

26 KUMAR June 11, 2012 at 3:55 pm

Dear Rakesh, firstly you need to get selected for the SSB. That is after you apply for what ever entry you are looking for. And once you get selected in the SSB interview you will have to worry about the merit list. The merit list depends on the performance in the SSB interview

27 Rakesh kiroula June 12, 2012 at 5:53 am

Very very thanks sir.i am very grateful to you but i want to knw that can i get sellected for direct entry logistics cadre in 73% in bcom .sir give me assure answer soon as you had great experience in related topics and how many % chance is for my selection in merit list

29 Uday Kumar June 16, 2012 at 6:12 pm

Dear Rakesh, the cutoff has been around 75% Try to give your best shot and this time due to more vacancies the cutoff may be reduced!!!

Thanks sir for your valuable advice . You are doing great job.

31 Rakesh singh June 26, 2012 at 5:11 am

Sir, sorry to asking you a silly question but i have to ask you that why all the recruitment application form must be sent by ordinary post why speed post is not allowed ,is there any reason behind this.actually i want to know this because few month ago i had apply for afcat but i hadn’t receive my admit card.i don’t why ,can you tell me is there fair scrutinize of candidate application form for the written exam or they choose it randomly.please give me answer for the above question,i will be very grateful to you

Reply

32 Uday Kumar June 29, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Dear Rakesh, that is because speed post needs to be received by hand/ maiol register which involves wastage of manpower. That is one reason for keeping the mode of sending applications as normal post.

You can blindly have faith in the system. It is genuine and no malpractises of any sort happen.

Regards.

35 Rakesh August 8, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Sir can you tell me the logic behind speaking english in ssb.i know this is a silly and unaskable question but i want to ask you because you had served indian navy as officer and also you have good knowledge over it.Please Dont think that i have problem with english,actually sometime i thought that why hindi which is our mothertoung language is not used in any employment process in all over india.why our system not respect hindi language.If we take example of america,china,japan etc or many other countries conducting its studies or recruitment programme in their own language so why india will not adopt its hindi language. I think day by day hindi is vanish from the hindustan language,if you see today generation they prefer to speak in english rather than hindi i know that english is worldly accepted ,prosperus and easy language but why it is a part of our ssb Why?. And why a person had not given chance when he speak in hindi.
