About Me

Hi, I am Uday Kumar. I am an alumnus of the National Defence Academy and an ex-Naval Officer of the Indian Navy. I am a former member of 33 SSB, Bhopal. I have created this blog with the intention of helping all the motivated and enthusiastic youngsters who are interested to join the armed forces.

This blog is for those aspirants and those Indian citizens who want to know about Indian armed forces and Indian Navy in particular. This blog is aimed at bringing the reader the career opportunities available at the Indian Armed Forces and to make the right decision while selecting one’s career.

I started this blog as a freelance writer, but soon I have become an entrepreneur. The start of my online course and study materials has given a new turn to this blog. The number of candidates getting selected using my products has drastically grown up. Thanks to all those readers who motivated me to bring out such a course. Hope my journey takes many people to their destination.

Good Morning Sir

My name is Abhijeet Sarkarand I have been recommended for Indian Navy Executive Branch (SSC). Sir first of all I want to thank u for guiding aspirants like us to join the defence services and heartly thanks as I got ample of guidance to crack SSB.

Sir can u pls tell me that is there any provision of getting Permanent commision after short service and I have also cleared my medical so when shud expect for the merit as well as joining.

Thank U

Kumar July 20, 2009 at 2:09 pm

generally there is less chance of converting from short service commission to permanent commission…but yes if you do extremely well in service then the chance of becoming a permanent commission officer increases…i cannot assure you that you will get , but yes there have been switch overs…(after reduction in some seniority which you gain as a result of short service commission entry)

abhijeet sarkar July 26, 2009 at 2:03 pm

Thank U Sir for providing d info. I’ll give my best and leave no stones unturned to get a permanent commission

Dear sir , i am a NIT graduate , presently working in Maruti suzuki ,got selected in OFB (Defence production) so i am joining OFB . i just gave SSB (Conference out ) for army ,
my DOB written in marksheet (15-07-1985 ) But i am one year less .
Dear sir as I could not be able to make up in SSB , I have some doubts:-
i Think my interview was not good , I told my weakness as i m egoistic , i am short tempered and in self appraisal i written that i am less dedicated toward my work some times .Then interviwer asked me why people think i am egoistic , i could be able to answer this . then he asked when i loose my temper , i said whenever anyone say anything about india ( or whenever anyone try to dominate in group where i am also present ) , then i loose my temper .he asked me what was quality i loved in my father , i said he loved me very much .
but then he asked some Current affairs question , i could ‘nt reply ,
And also in GD , i did well but i made a mistake that i stopped two times by touching my hands ( can you tell me what should be body movement while discussing in GD ??), and also in individual task i could not be able to perform well ( completed only 7 out of 10 ) .
Also in interview he asked me about my 10th percent ( very low 59.4% bcz my father were espired when i was in tenth , i told the same to interviewer ) m then he asked why i did’nt get good in 12th only 74.2% he said ( i could’nt answer ) , then he asked me about my 3 year gap after 12th ( bcz i did’nt opted for any coaching , i said i was trying only for iit but i did’nt get it so i opted nit , then he asked what would you have done if again you did’nt even get nit ?, i said may be i would have tried once more ) , then he asked about my aieee rank (3443-AIR ) also he asked my State rank ( 500 in UP ) because of these he impressed and said you are good student but he was confused that why i have not been able to scored good in 10 and 12th.
also in lecturrete i could not perform good ( my english is not very fluent ) .
In conference he asked how do you find difference between your team in your company and group task here ( i said that in my company we do work for our profit and here we do this for group and also here we do work for our country , i think i have exaggerated this , i have not gave right answer , i think i was trying to show my patriotic nature intentionally .
i have written all these so that you come to know about what major mistakes i made ??
and also did i do wrong by mentioning my weakness as egoistic and short tempered ( well i learned from my mistake , i already started working on these weaknesses ) ??
and please tell me what should i do to improve my personality so that i should be abel to clear SSB ASAP . also please tell me what weaknesses can we tell that dont come under 15 required qualities ( do you think its a stupid question ??) , then please talk to me some time and be my frnd to tell me how can i clear interview .
Please help me sir , i will be grateful to you to get responded by you on my personal mail id .
Please do respond in my personal gmail id :- [email protected]

see you have mentioned the worst quality to be your shortcoming, never again do it….you may mention qualities like lesser efficiency over english language…slow in writing, bad handwriting, addicted to tv or addicted to cricket matches, etc…but be sure to expect some question on the same and so prepare answers for the same in advance

HI SIR,

I was the only girl recommended and declared medically fit from my batch for NAVY OBSERVER course starting from Jan 2011 conducted on 6th Aug 2010 at 12 SSB b’lore.
I was really glad after going through all the above doubt clearing sessions……because for each & every doubt you have given prompt response.And i appreciate your kind gesture as you are taking out precious time from your busy schedule. Hoping you would clear mine too….

1.I would like to know if there is any merit list for observer entry in navy?
2. If yes, is it a common entry for boys and girls as observer in terms of merit list???
3.What are my chances of being in the merit list as i was the only girl out of four recommended, who cleared medicals at IAM ?
4.When will they issue or i can expect merit list or the call up letter to join the academy???
5.What is the approximate vacancy for observers course starting from Jan 2011?

I am eager and would be glad enough to see a response from your side for my queries too.

Reply

Kumar November 28, 2010 at 10:22 am

1.no
2.no, girls have their own list
3.you will make it…
4. mid december
5.around 6-8 from permenant commision already serving personnel and about 4-6 from freshers like you

S.SAVITA November 28, 2010 at 2:04 pm

Sir,
Thank you so much for responding to my queries.
It was really a confidence booster for me, as you said there is no merit list for observer entry and i will make it.
I am working in an IT MNC so i am supposed to start its termination process before 2 months i.e by NOVEMBER beginning and now NOVEMBER is about end. Should i wait till I get the letter or I should start with the termination process? Whats your opinion in this case?
Till date i was worried about merit list and heard of many cases were selected candidates were declared merit out….so you have terminated that part of my tension!!
Thanks Again!!

Reply

Kumar November 28, 2010 at 2:07 pm

do not resign your job now…sometimes the courses gets cancelled due to various reasons…in that case they will show that your name is not in the merit list…so just hold on your horses…and also try to call up naval headquarters and ask about your name in the final list

S.SAVITA November 28, 2010 at 5:18 pm

Thank you sir for giving me this part of information also!
I had made a call to the naval HQ(phone no. provided in the nausena-bharthi website) beginning of this month giving the same reason of my job termination process and asking about my name in the list, they said they cannot disclose any information on phone then and they asked me to wait till Dec mid, as you said.
I don’t mind giving it a second try, may be after DEC 15th if the good news is not in my hand.
Is it right to call at naval HQ and ask them or we are not supposed to ask on such information that is concerned with us only???

Hello sir,
I got recommended for SSC(ATC) for jan 2011 course,joining date being on dec 31st.

I am 20 yrs old and want to be an aviator or rather a more action packed job.My dilemma is..

1. Should I stay back and try for Pilot entry or other entries, or should I join the academy and try for SSB from there while undergoing training.

About ATC

2. Sir like you my brother is also an ex-NDA, fighter pilot in the IAF.He gave me an entirely conflicting opinion about ATC unlike what you replied to another reader of this blog.
-Is it that Naval ATC chaps get less exposure and limited work compared to IAF ATC chaps?
-What are the chances for ATCo to sent to work in an aircraft carrier.
-Can people from this cadre also go for the Marcos selection tests?

hi sir!
1. i am an engineering final year student and have recently got recommended in ssb for navy for GS(X)-SSC at banglore center. but in my medical tests in surgical, i was detected with vericoceles. doctor suggested me to get it operated with a surgery before my remedical with in 42 days. after returning to home i visited a civil hospital in delhi and consulted one of the best urologists. he on diagnosis detected that my vericocele is very minor and its surgical treatment at this stage is not required at all. infact the surgery may cause some further complications.
now i have to reappear for my re-medical at delhi base with in stipulated time of 42 days which is expiring on 15 jan 2011. please suggest me what to do? i have got in written by that doctor about his opinion. but will the doctors at base hospital consider that or not? i am very much desperate to join navy sir, and i am sure that my ssb was good enough to bring me to merit list but wat do i do now for medical clearance?
2. one more issue in my medical was that i have a myopic power of -3.0 for which i have got an another TR in my medicals… checking the rules i figured out that the myopic range allowed is upto -3.5. but on other hand the limit of uncorrected vision specified is 6/12. i have talked to many eye specialists about this and have got to know it for sure that its practically impossible for a person with -3.0 to have an uncorrected vision of 6/12 (it would be near to 6/60). with 6/12 one can never have a myopia of greater than -0.75. please resolve this ambiguity in the medical standards.
3. is lasic allowed for correcting vision? i heard by somewhere that a new rule is soon going to be published from 1st jan 2011 permitting it…
please suggest me sir what are my chances to get through my remedical successfully…i know the chances are fairly enough for me to get rejections and end my dream of joining navy to an end here 🙁 but still i want to know your opinions…
thanks and regards

SIr,
I always wanted to join the army and I gave 4 attempts, but in all the attempts i was not recommended, sir my communication skills are really good, I am good at sports and my knowledge on current happenings is also good, in every SSB candidates in my group praise me for my performance and skills, but at the end I will not be selected, but others who perform half heartedly get selected .
In my 2 attempts, after conference, GTO would come and say
that armed forces only need average people and not intelligent and creative people.
what does this mean ?
even in my other 2 attempts GTO’S have said the same thing that they need people who can just follow orders.Because Iwanted to join army i did not join M.S course, but I now i know I will never be selected and I have lost interest.
candidates selected in my group would blindly by heart some guide books and come to SSB to get selected.
I am really confused by the selection method of SSB’s and never want to go again , but I want your opinions about this ? waiting for yuour reply ?

I missed to apply for GS(X) entry for jan & july 2011,when does the applications are invited for JAN 2012,and whether through GS(x) entry one can become a marco or submariner, what are the chances given to SSC officers ? are there any entries through which one can become a marco or submariner .

Reply

Kumar January 17, 2011 at 4:42 pm

the best entry as of now which is available for you to become a marco or a submariner is only through COMBINED DEFENCE SERVICE EXAM(GSES ENTRY)…for a SSC officer the option gets reduced for becoming a marco..though there are ample chances for going for the submarine cadre as a short service commission officer, but the scope of getting a job after leaving the navy is very meagre!!!!

Ashok Singh February 3, 2011 at 4:01 am

Hello sir,
I have got some more doubts like what are the officer like qualities the ssb expects from a person. I am asking you this because few years ago 2 of classmates cleared the first day and could make way to the next 4 days at ssb one of them was rejected saying “We need natural officers not artificial” and the second guys name was not in the final merit list.The first guy did not tell us anything about the ssb interview as he was a little reserved and when we asked him he just started cooking some story’s but the second guy told us everything about the ssb. Only god knows why his name was not in the final merit list. Sir I have been thinking about this for many years never knew whom to ask until finally, I found you.Hope my questions make some sense.I just want to know them because if don’t have any of the quality in me i’ll try to cultivate them in me. As joining army is my childhood dream.There are people here who have got many chances to attend ssb but i haven’t got even one chance until now but i have faith on myself, I will.As some one said “some goals are so worthy it is glorious even to fail”.

Thanks and Regards,
Ashok.

Kumar February 3, 2011 at 1:52 pm

dear ashok, it was nice reading your comment..it was even better reading the last line!!!
to answer your question there are no natural officer like qualities and artificial officer like qualities!!!
it is either you have it or you donot have it…may be you can call it a person trying to imitate some officer like qualities in his personality which he has miserably failed…not to confuse any further, let me come to the point..
the officer like qualities are :
1.honesty
2.josh(high spirit)
3.never say die attitude
4.pride in self
5.setting priorities in all walks of life
6.smartness and intelligent
7.a person who does not care about own comfort and safety -a team leader

Hi Sir,

First of all i would like to thank you for this wonderful blog, this blog means a lot to me because i am away from my home land and there is no way of getting information about ssb in so much detail.
Sir, basically i am from lucknow studied B.E (Mechanical engg.), Bhopal(2007) and MS Automotive engg. From Coventry University(UK)(july-2010).
just 2 days back i got my ssb call for Indian Army TGC/113 Bangalore on 30th april.
Presently i am in UK and doing an internship(unpaid) and simultaneously applying jobs.
my queries are,

1) i am in dilemma as this is my 2nd attempt and probably last (as i am nov. 84 born), hence should i go for ssb? because i havent got any book or source for the preparation and its very short notice to get some books from India.(i am conference out on first attempt for the Indian Navy, Bangalore)

2) As this is technical entry, hence they will ask technical questions. what sort of prep. is required for that or what kind of questions they ask?

3) Many engg. openings like automobile, mechanical , metallurgy etc. are there but i could not find any detail of what nature of work these engineers do in Army specifically in automobile? as i have got a decent knowledge of CAD and CAE softwares.

i am in real confusion at this moment as i have to come all over from UK specially for this test and bit hesitant if i would not recommended then i might lose the confidence as this one of the most significant phase of my life. kindly provide me your valuable suggestions as soon as possible.

Regards,
Sumeet

sir i have heard a lot of mixed opinions about the education cadre,some say its not as good as the logistics cadre,some say it is… so i am not sure what to do.I basically belong to Bhilai Chhattisgarh,and in our area we have no body who can guide us thoroughly,we dont have any member in the family who belongs to defence background.

sir kindly tell me
1.are we given an opportunity to pursue Mtech or MBA in a reputed college once we join the service?
2. is it possible to switch cadre once in the service?if so whats the criteria(like a written exam?or academic qualifications?)
3.what job opportunities do i have after 14 years of service?

MY EXPERIANCE AT SSB ALLAHABAD by JENARTHAN

by Kumar on January 30, 2011

Hi I am Jena, from Andhra Pradesh. I work in TechM. I am a engineer in ECS. In this article I would like to share my experiences of my SSB interview for armed forces engineering. To start with the five days were fun.We arrived at the cantonment area at 1pm in the evening and we made way to the dormitory of 11 SSb board.

In the evening we had briefing about what will be expected from us in the place and next morning we had our screening test. We introduced ourselves to the other individuals who had come for the interview.

Day 1

The screening test comprised of verbal and non verbal aptitude test and also picture perception test and a group discussion on that basis. In the picture perception test we were shown a very blur image and we had to write a story on it and conditions on what led to that situation and what will happen in the future.

Well I could see only one girl playing piano and so I wrote a story about her getting in the mood to play as it was a very sleepy afternoon and she was remembering something and then she plays some beautiful melody and bla-bla-bla. Then we had a discussion on it and to my amazement some of them had seen more than one people and wrote a gory story that she does not have much money and bla bla bla and later she becomes a mozart or she helps the poor and bla bla bla…. well at least I could not see from where did the poor and other stuffs came out from.

Then we had a GD and we had to boil down to one story and finally it was agreed that there was a girl who was playing a piano… plus she had a bad past and a glorious future. Well on overall ground the GD was good, atleast we could make one story.

The results of the screening test was declared in the evening and only eight of us survived and the others were sent home. We were given chest numbers and my chest number was 6. Next day again early in the morning we were called up for next set of tests which would be more rigorous.

Day 2

The previous night the temperature at that time touched 0*C at night in Allahabad and we had these “fauji kambals” and that too in pairs to prevent us from the biting cold. Getting up in the morning was like hell. You had to get up at 5:00 and and as you come out of your colts the chill hits you. The shiver runs down your body as the temperature is 3*C and we have to attend to our daily chores. The morning tea could not have tasted better if it was served in any other season. It needed lots of courage to touch the water coming out of the taps and I and few others decided to skip the bath that morning, but there were some brave among us you did have bath. The mess would stop serving breakfast after 5:45, so we had to rush and all of us being engineers were the last to report in the mess and always scolded for doing so in the coming days. The other boards would have finished by the time anyone from our side reached the canteen. Later on many of us did not even go for breakfast as the cold was too harsh to handle. After all engineers are supposed to be lazies and so we proved it.

We had another series of test waiting for us. Now it was a series of 12 picture perception tests, though this time the pictures were somewhat clear and we had only 3 minutes per picture to write a story. This time though I wrote about gloomy pasts and bright futures. The 12th story was a blank screen and we had to write whatever we wished to write and so i wrote something. Then we had sentence completion tests and sentence creation test where we were given about 60 of each types. Then we had to write an essay about ourselves, what my parents think about me and what my teachers think about me, what my friends think about me and what I think about myself. I had also to write about my weak points and my strong points and so I wrote something in it.

I also like to recall one incident that day. While filling up some forms, the instructor happened to ask me something and I replied “Ya”. He asked me what “Ya” means and I said its short form of “Yes”. But he replied that you use this when you speak with disrespect. This is cultural shock especially for a person like me who was given cross-cultural interaction training in TechM and taught to speak in this formal fashion. There were many shocks in the coming days.

Next on the same day I was called for personal interview. I went for about one hour and this is where I performed poorly in my entire SSB and may be the reason why I was not selected. I was made to feel comfortable and a psychologist was taking my interview and a brigadier was sitting on my left hand side, was noting my gestures ( which I realized much late in my interview). The interviewer asked me first about my job and how was I liking it. I said that the job was good though I was not liking it much. Then I tried to explain him the reasons why. Then he asked me what was my profile and I said that I was on a bench right now(but he could not understand what a bench was, So I explained him completely what it was). Then he asked what project I was in and as I was in bench and I did not know what type of project were going on, I said I was working on building communication softwares for British Telecom, but then I again had to explain him what communication means in this context. Then he asked me about my Boss and tell about two good points and two bad points about him. At this point I could not remember any name as I did not have any PM and told the name of GPM ” Nikhil Datar” whom I met on the first day and never met again. He was not even my GPM now but I could only recall his name and talked about two good points and added that , as I do had interaction only through mails it would be very wrong to speak anything against him…. well I tried to sound diplomatic.

Then I had to speak two good points and two bad points about my office friends, childhood friends, achievements from my school days and college days and I would say he was quite impressed though . Then he asked the questions on why I wanted to join the army and leave TechM and why do u feel that u could become an officer in the armed forces. Here I somehow messed up and could not completely make him belief what I had in my mind. I also spoke something which I was not supposed to speak but the interview took it out of me and this was the major blunder.

He asked me about sports and current affairs. He asked me where is the next football world cup and I did not know this. He then asked me about the ranks in Indian army and somehow I missed Brigadier rank. He asked me ” How many commands army had, but I could only recall five”. Then he asked me some other questions related to the armed forces.

Then he asked about my opinion about the naxallite movement. I said that I feel Naxalism was not a disease but one has to study the movement before coming to a decision. Though I had read about the Naxalbadi movement but it would be too childish to comment without knowing the present situation. So it would be wrong to comment without having proper knowledge of their propagandas. Though personally I won’t take any decision but if the army asks me to go there I would follow orders….

Then he asked me about environment and development and then questions about what I read and sports – though I could not tell him where the next world cup will take place and also about the music. I could feel after the interview that it had not gone like the way I desired. Though I wished to do well in my other tests.

Day 3

Next day again early in the morning we had ground tasks and group tasks, more of an physical activity. Now we had to go there in shorts and T-shirts and temperature was 5-6*C outside. We were shaking like hell but the GT officer, a colonel and a major seemed like unaffected from the cold. The first test was the military planning test where we were given a situation on a map and had to make strategy to tackle the situation and come out with a plan.

The situation was ” We had gone for a trekking down to a remote location and we are team of 8 and there we overhear some terrorists who were going to blow off a dam and also to derail a train coming from south location. Then at that time a kid comes running that he saw a mad elephant running towards a village. And at that same time the guide with us falls from a spot and he was bleeding profusely from his head. Now we had to plan out how we will tackle this situation.”

And we after a group discussion did come out with a feasible solution which I thought was good enough for the situation. The next was GD on two topics ” The energy crisis of India” and the other on ” The migration of villagers to cities and the trouble created”. The GD also did go quite well.

Then we had the snake race where we had to run with a rope with atleast 3 people holding the rope at one time and cross obstacles. Also we had to choose a war cry and choose ‘Vande Mataram”. I would say I had never shouted louder ever like how I was shouting and cheering my team( except in rock concerts but there your voice is toned down by the amplifiers). It was an all different feeling that we had to make all of our team mates to cross the obstacles (camaraderie) and not the selfish and self centered attitude that we are taught from our very first days in the competitive environment of our colleges and schools. The obstacles were not easy and people do get hurt doing this and ambulance was standing just in case anything goes wrong. The obstacles were spread over a 100 meter zone and needs help from others to complete.

As I was having the chest no 2 I was second on the line till the first obstacle. But somewhere near the first obstacle the chest No 1 was not there and I was in the lead now (though others were experienced and this was my first time). I shouted vande mataram and went through three poles making a figure of eight through them and taking the rope with me. Then we had to climb an eight feet wall and move to the next wall through a log of wood. I was again in the front and reached the other wall holding the rope, but the third one holding it fell down while crossing and it was an eight feet fall. We were given a 5 sec penalty for dropping the rope. It seemed the obstacles were not difficult enough that they put red and white marks on them and touching the red mark leads to penalty. We were given 10 seconds penalty for team members touching the red mark.

Then we had to climb a net and crawl down and again there was no one before me. Then there were some more obstacles and there were some more climbs and falls and then the last obstacle. This time someone else braved to come before me and it was to climb a log of wood with cuts meant for holding the foot to a height of 10 ft and then slide down from the other side. Though the other guy who was now in front of me skid and fell down from about eight feet, he though tried to struggle for some time. Then again I was on the lead and I shouted ” Vande Mataram” again and took the rope and came down the other side. We completed this in 9:35 seconds and no body was badly hurt. I had never given a war cry in my life and did feel for the first time doing things with such a josh.

Next we had strategy building steps to cross , where we were given a round log , rope and flat wooden bench to make bridge through some obstacles without touching the ground and cross them. This was really tough and a mind bending exercise to do something of this sort. We as a group did complete two quite difficult exercises of crossing the obstacles quite easily, maybe because we were engineers but otherwise these are very difficult for others.

The day was over now and we were very tired after the hard work that we went for an afternoon rest and then later went to the Allahabad market to do some bird watching. Next day was going to be tough and we did go to bed early that day as all were very tired.

Day 4

And again in the next morning most of us missed the breakfast. Today will be individual tasks and extempore and some more obstacle crossing exercises. Again at 6 in morning , shivering like hell and just wearing shorts and T-shirt and temperature at 5*C we were made to sit in a line and each of us were given a topic to speak on and my topic was ” The current traffic situation in India” and I think I spoke quite well for 3 minutes. Then we had the individual tasks where the maximum accidents take place. Before this we were asked to run two rounds of the fields to warm up and then cross a set of 10 difficult obstacles in 3 minutes and do as much as possible. The obstacles were difficult and again not for the poor of hearts and each had a number assigned to it according to the difficulty ranging from 1-10.

I would tell the obstacles by the way I attempted it. The first I tried was the most easiest one , running up a ramp and jumping on the other side. Next it was to jump over a ditch and hold a rope hanging midway and swing and jump off the ditch. The next was to climb a ladder to an elevated location at 10 feet elevation and jump to a elevation about 6 feet high and then jump down. The next was to climb a ramp and jump off an elevated obstacle – high jump style. The next was to climb up a 10 feet high location and use a rope to do a mogli style swing and fall on gravel about 8-10 feet away. Then you do the commando climb where you walk on a rope and holding a rope overhead and then cross to the other side and use rope to climb down. Then walk over three logs of wood without falling. Then climb over an elevated stand made like ramp and shout the chest number from the highest elevated point on that and come down. And I missed one obstacle to do a long jump over some drums kept. But I repeated two more obstacles in my stipulated time of three minutes. There were again this red and white marks which you can and you cannot touch.

After this I could not feel my fingers for about one hour as they had gone numb while negotiating with the ropes in the cold. My throat was also dry and I was damn tired after this. After that we had command task where we had to choose two and command them to make a bridge over some obstacles and cross over them. After that we had half team obstacles were teams of 4 were asked to cross these obstacles and finally a full team task to cross a much tougher obstacle. It is said that people cannot cross these obstacles but we being engineers all of us were able to do it with much ease, though there were slight hiccups in between.

The day was hectic but now it was over. We planned to visit Allahabad as the result was awaited next day after the conference. We visited the Sangam, the famous Hanuman mandir near it, the Allahabad museum and the Nehru house and also visited the place where Chandra Shekhar Azad was shot. The day was fun and tiring but tomorrow was the D-day.

Day 5

We all dressed in formals and were to attend the conference with other officers in the board. The conference was just a formality as I was told and your fate had been decided before that. All the officers who were involved in the selection procedure would discuss if you should be taken in or now. I was the second to be called for the conference and I went in. There were sitting all the officers of the 11 SSB board in complete military uniform. There were about 14-16 of them wearing the military outfit and it I really felt a chill going down my spine while sitting in front of them. They asked general questions about my stay and how I liked the place and I said irrespective of the result I loved my stay and I also added that everyone should atleast come once in lifetime for SSb to know how much really you have in you.

After about half an hour of the conference, the results were declared by a brigadier and our batch was completely washed off with no selections. Though we had two people who were in the IMA before and they had to leave for some personal and unavoidable circumstances and one was recommended for 4 times from different places but for some reason he was not able to make it. Well after all Allahabad SSB has a reputation to stand for.

Well irrespective of the outcome, these five days would be some of my best days of my life. The day started early at 5 and ended by 12 and then you get to do lots of stuff when you are disciplined. I enjoyed my stay.

You opened the suspense before that you were not selected.

Will 72 % be considered for the cut off mark or 65 % ????? I am 23 and a half years now , in about a year, I will lose by age elgibilty criteria and my dream to join the Navy. PLease suggest how to go about it? Should i take up any additional course in material management ???? are there any officer entries in sports quota?????

Respected Sir,

Your blog has been inspiring and informative in all aspects. I have given ssb one time and have been recommended for indian navy PC (Log). I am currently about to join as a nav off in merchant navy in a reputed company with a handsome salary package. What are your views about both the fields. I am sorry if my query is a bit out of line, but I would be obliged if you answered it.

Thanking You.

Hi Sir, First of all thanks for providing so much of insight on this topic and it really helped me to crack the SSB process. I have been recomended for SSC(T) course commencing from Jan, 2012. I have few questions which are below so it would be pretty helpfull if answer them
1.) Probability of converting SSC to PC in Technical branch ?
2.) Publication of Merit List , When and Where ?
3.) Can a person recommened for Technical become a MARCOS ?
4.) After 14 Years of service , Opportunities in Civilian life (Job) ?
5.) Work Profile for an Officer in Electrical branch (Technical) ?

Though you have answered these questions previoulsy as well , but if you can provide throw some more light on it , it would be indeeed helpfull.

Again hats off to you for your brilliant initiative .
Do reply ASAP.

My son selected for SSC Navy tech cadre Electrical Br. at Banglore SSB.
In his medical he got TR as Substandard unaided visual acuity.
his vision found is 6/36 while std is 6/24.
We have decided to go for Lasik operation for correction.
I have following queries.
1.Are there any Std for Eye after Lasik operation that can affect the selection?
2. My son cannot swim and he should not swim after Lasik for 2-3 months
as per doctor’s advice. So to learn swimming he has short period. Is it Necessary that candidate must know swimming before joining or will navy teach it after?
3. Please answer me at the earliest.

Mr. Pramod,
1. the answer to this question can best be given at the SSB medical centre only. You can call them up and get telephoni
cally connected to the hospitol and enquire.
2.Navy teaches all the cdets swimming in the academy. If your son is a non-swimmer then it might turn out to be a problem
for him as he cannot pass out from the academy without clearing his swimming tests. And hence he might get relegated.

As per the physical requirements for the post one must have his/her eyesight 6/6 without glasses but they did not mention whether it can be corrected to 6/6 through lasik surgery or normal surgery. I tried calling the recruitment cell many times, i also sent them e-mails but never got a reply. Would you be able to help me in finding my answer..?

If you had done the lasik before 1 year or so then there is no problem….but i heard a new policy has come in to effect , by which anyone who has done his/her lasik , is also eligible like all others !!!! this i am not sure!!!!if any one has an idea about this plz let us know!!!

Suchita Modi January 18, 2012 at 5:48 pm

thanks for your reply sir, how can i find out about the new policy? & i have one more question to ask you. as i know that one can appear for the PABT test only once in lifetime and candidates failed in PABT can never apply for pilot branch, but CPL holders do not need to appear for PABT. Now since indian coast guard have two different branches for pilots and cpl holders.. and there is no PABT for them.. does that mean one who has failed in PABT before can apply as a cpl holder??

Hello sir,
you have a wonderful and informative site. I have some questions that been troubling me after i started doing some research on SSB exams.They are as follows:

1. I am only eligible for OTA because of age constraints. Is there any ddifference between the cadets who come through NDA and the officers that come out of the OTA with respect to promotions, posting and the rest.This is because i see that only NDA officers have become chiefs of staff.

2. What sort of preparations i should be doing for my written exams? Any tips..

3. WHat sort of accuracy and attempts to be made for the written exams.

4. When should i start preparing for ssb interiews?

5. Can i ask a present commisioned officer for guidance for the ssb interviews. Is that allowed?

Reply

Kumar January 25, 2012 at 9:31 am

1. Yes , you are correct of the fact that only officers from NDA have become Chief of Army Staff. But becoming the chief of army staff is not the only thing to be looked for in a career like, army.
2. Read up your books.
3. —-i didnt understand
4. once your results of written exams are out
5. yes, you can ask him for guidance…but you cannot quote him or use his name.. it will backfire for you

Navjot, I can very well appreciate the confusion and tension that must be taking a huge toll on you , as you are in such a situation. I know that it is not so easy to decide an answer to this question, but still I will give an answer that you will give yourself after about 3 yrs. The navy will give you some of the most difficult situations that you would come across in your life. The difficult life and demanding profession will take a huge toll on you. You will compare yourself with people outside and feel that you work much more than them but still make half of what they make. Nevertheless you will also feel the feeling of bonding to the organisation and to your subordinates. You will be in a position to take life by its horns. You will feel that nothing in this world can harm you. You will be so overconfident and powerful at the age of about 25. You will handle such responsibilities that people can only imagine or only see at movies. Your wife and kids will be so proud of you. Your parents can not ask for anything more than this. I know that I have not answered your question directly. But i hope you can appreciate my points.

Its your life and only you have the right to choose what you want from it. Others are only some guides.

Pranav, no only one appeal board is constituted. If you are rejected again there, then you can not appeal again!! But you may check with the hospital authorities for next action from your side…speak politely and try to ask them to guide you through this…

sir,
i have a query, i applied for tgc-115 in january. While filling the form in branch column i filled computer science and enginnering/computer engineering/Msc computers, and my actual branch is Information Technology. I did this because it was the only branch related to computers (IT field) and there no option of particular IT. So my question is will my candidature get cancelled or not, is there any chances for me. Because I know that no one will ask me in the selection center. The problem is if i get recommended my papers will go to delhi for verification. Please help me sir i am trying so hard for this.

From Bhopal , there were around 12 guys recommended in 3 batches , sir
my question is , there are 2 more centers ,so sir , Merit will be based on what criteria ( 10th or 12th or graduation or SSB performance or combination of all) ?

And secondly , in my case there were 4 guys recommended , out of that police verification is done for 2 guys, me & one of my friend ” avenesh ” are left .
Does that indicate that our chances are less or we are still in the race of merit list ?

Please sir , do guide .

sir ,
i would like to know about ssc women technical entry in army.if seats are vacant in other branch then do army shift those seats to recommended candidates from some other branch.ssc women technical 09 has near about 20 seats vacant and yet they have not revised the seats.earlier they used to revise the seats but this year nothing is done from army’s side.and do they send the police verification even after the merit list is out.because my police verification was not done when it was required.are there chances that seats are going to be revised? and i heard from some people that this year some lady officers who were about to retire extended there job till 10yrs with army so our seats wont be revised.is that a valid reason?can we file an rti against army for not revising the seats as every year they have done it and why not this year.5th april merit in women are going to join ota chennai.please do tell me can we expect that seats can be revised even after their joining.

Reply

KUMAR April 1, 2012 at 9:11 am

Dear Anubha,definetely NO!! Army will not shift its recommended candidates from one branch to other!!! Your number of vacancies are not based on some lady officers retiring or they getting extension etc. 3. Once the GC join the academy then there is no chance of revising the seats!!

During the SMB i had been diagnosed to be having DNS and i have rectified the same and would be reporting to the AMB soon. Hence, I would like to know the procedure at appeal medical board.That is..Is the whole medical test carried out again or would i be only tested for DNS at the AMB.

Dear Sir,

I have been recommended by SSB – Coimbatore for PC(EDU) 2012 batch. My medicals are also over and I am fit to join the service. I have few queries:
1. When is the course likely to start? In my SSB admit card, it is written July 2012 but in the newspaper ad, it was June 2012. I tried calling up the number provided in Nausena Bharati website, but they casually replied that the course is in June end!! I dropped a mail to ‘[email protected]’ few weeks back but yet to get a reply!! Please help

2. I have around 2 years experience in ERP systems. Will this help me getting into development projects going in Indian Navy? or as an Edu officer, my profile will only be as a trainer? Do I have a say in my transfer or job role?

3. Do we have any website or other resources for understanding the promotion policies of officers in Indian Navy. If any please share the same.

Thanks in advance for taking the pain and answer my queries.

Regards,
Pritam

Reply

KUMAR April 28, 2012 at 2:06 pm

1. Dear Pritam, the course will commence in the last monday of June or the first monday of July. You can be prepared accordingly.

2. At a junior level you cannot expect to be into development projects. But definitely you will find a place in developing something or the other in due course of time. It may be related to a elearning program or a website for the area of your expertise or anything. The criteria for that is that you need to do well in service.

3. No . We donot have any such websites showing the policies for promotion in the navy.

Is the selection procedure different for these entries.And what is future of short service commisioned after retirement.

Reply

KUMAR May 12, 2012 at 6:34 am

Dear Pavan Kumar, the armed forces has a pyramidal setup of heirarchy. A lot of work is there in the junio level but as you rise in service the vacancies are reducing. So there arises a very high competition for the top spot. At the same time the officers who donot make it up to higher ranks find it difficult to work under their juniors and peers. So the short service commission was introduced to reduce the shortage of officers in the junior level and at the same time maintain the heirarchy of the forces untouched and undisturbed

I was declared medically unfit for 76AEC airforce because of
1) scars in lungs :called pleural thickening in right lung although minimal.
2)pre excitation syndrom (heart)
Moreover that time I was very sick ( intense cold since last 3 months ),immune system was very weak , weight 56kg for height 171cm,very thin,spirometry test was abnormal Selected in fast track system so time for total medical procedure was very less , so did not attend RMB.
But this time I have my medical next month at IAM .
weight 66kg , practicing yoga,attending gym for cardio since last 2 months .No illness since last 2 years ,perfectly sound body , no heart problem(HR 62 bps) now ,spirometry is also perfectly normal .Doctors say that I am 100% fit this time .They cant reject you .Please give me your valuable advise.

Dear Babnesh, from what ever you have told me, the answer to your question also lies there and within what you have asked. You are fit now!! In that case they will not reject you!! 🙂

bob June 19, 2012 at 11:20 am

Hi Uday ,
Thanks for your response .Actually my concern is even if they find scars in lungs(still there) they term it abnormality.Further testing depends upon the doctor and his mood .Is there any chance they don’t declare me unfit in SMB here in Bangalore IAM for this ?Could you please tell me whether AMB and then RMB will be helpfull in my case ? This is my last attempt.

Uday Kumar June 23, 2012 at 7:33 pm

Dear Hrushit, you are eligible to apply. But you must not have any backlogs at the time of SSB. You must also be able to produce the degree certificate on the date as per the advertisement. Regards

Hrushit June 24, 2012 at 7:28 am

Thank you sir for your prompt reply.
But sir as you said,the date of producing the certificate mentioned in the advertisement is 15th June 2013.My final semester exam will only end By 25-28th June,so no way of producing certificate by 15th June.I am studying in Mumbai University,whose exams end later than other universities.

Dear Sir, I am a fourth year engineering student and i aim to become an aviator. I came across the advertisements for both AFCAT as well as Indian Navy’s UES scheme for engineers to become a pilot. I have 3 queries:
1. Can I apply to both simultaneously?
2. What if I get rejected in the first PABT (say by IAF) , and then I am called for SSB and PABT (say by Navy)? Will I be allowed to take PABT again at the Navy’s SSB as they would not be knowing about my earlier attempt at IAF (whether it is positive or negative).?

3. I have very good academic record and have done many extra curricular activities at both school and college level and don’t have any medical problem as such. But I have flat feet, which have not caused any trouble so far i.e I can run fast and walk for miles without suffering from any pain, and I am a trekking enthusiast. Will my flat feet be cause of rejection in medical even for IAF and Navy’s Air Arm?

Sincerely

Reply

Uday Kumar June 30, 2012 at 7:23 am

Dear Gitansh,

1. Yes, you can.
2. No, PABT is once in a lifetime for navy,army,air force, coast gaurd
3.No. It will not be a problem, until it does not gravely restricts your running in the opinion of the doctor. If the doctor feels it will be a problem to you then he will reject you medically.

In my GTO tasks, I know I was not that good as my other group members. So i gave myself no. 4 in my group. My interviewer commented in this, “Oh, you are being too modest, huh??”.

Dear Vikas Maurya, I am impressed by your zeal to join the armed forces. My advice to you is to join any coaching if possible or join our course, because you may be repeating a certain mistake of yours without correcting or changing in all the SSB. And since you are making that mistake you are not being selected. That might be the reason for your failure.

For Mechanical Engineers what will be the best suited force among the three Forces in Technical branch/ Executive Branch
Pls give some details on PC Naval Armament Inspection Centre
Can we convert SSC in to PC in INDIAN NAVY/AIRFORCE

PLS GIVE TIPS AND INFORMATION FOR ABOVE ASKED QUESTIONS??

Dear Aneesh, yes it is possible to convert from SSC to PC. And being a mechanical engineer I would suggest Navy/Airforce for vertical growth in your specialisation. As compared to Army. But all three services have their own pros and cons. So it is actually very very difficult to put one above the other. And for further tips you can follow the link below:

Respected Sir,

I am Rahul Sharma an Ex-GC from IMA ( batch 133-Regular ) , I resigned from IMA on 23 July 2012 and resigning from IMA was totally my Ignorance about IMA rules and also somewhat my arrogance (as I am a B.Tech and went in Non-Technical Entry) , But lastly I resigned from IMA , But 3 days later after my resignation I called my company Commander back and told him that I want to join IMa back and then he guided me to write an application to adjutant of IMA , and I did accordingly but till now I do not have any information.

Sir , please guide me Is it possible for me to get into IMA back?
Is it worthless waiting for the reply of the application that I wrote ??
Or if I will give SSB again, how much my resignation will effect on Interview Panel decision??

I need your help in this case, I got recommended for SSC (Tech) Dec-12 Course Navy.

Two days before I called Naval HQ they said my name is in merit and the joining is on 20th Dec, 2012.

I called them today to ask when would I get my call letter as I am working in IT company and have to serve 2 months notice period and I thought I will resign once I will get my call letter. But today some other person picked up and said they will confirm whether my name is in merit or not and said it it not confirmed.
Sir, now I am really tensed about the issue, please guide me over this.

Hi,
I’m Sharath Mano (age 23) currently working in an MNC. I’d previously attended two SSB’s in which I was a conference out both the time. This time I’d got a call up letter for SSB for SSC (non-tech). Also I’d applied for the aviation arm in navy. I would be glad if you can elaborate the nature of the job of a short service commissioned officer & how it differs from that of a permanent commission.Since I’m an engineer is it possible for me give my preference for technical,once I join d academy?
Is it possible for me to get a permanent commission,if I wish to continue after 10 years? If not,what are the prospective job opportunities after army.
OTA course commences on April2013 whereas pilot course in navy commences on June2013. Say for instance,I got recommended for army & join d academy,is it possible to give my navy SSB,if it lies in the month of April.
Thank you

On 30th October,2012 I received a SMS asking me to attend SSb on 26th Novemeber at coimbatore center but the Call letter says to report at Banglore railway station. So I tried contacting the concerned number but didn’t get any reply. On the following day i.e. 31st Oct, 2012 I received another SMS quoted as ” Refer to your candidature for SSC GS(X). Please treat our earlier sms/email as cancelled. Fresh date will be intimated later.

What should I do now? I’m in state of dilemma. I tried reaching out to the officer but number is always switched off.

Please help.

Hello sir
I am Naveen Kumar B.Tech Computer Engineering pass out(May 2012 ) student from Punjabi University Patiala ,Punjab.
I appeared in service selection board Bhopal for TGC-116 entry on 2nd of October 2012. But they didn’t allow me attend SSB because of the following reason:
o Computer Engineering doesn’t match with Computer Science and Engineering which is given in the advertisement of TGC-116.
o They said only Computer Science and Engineering \Computer Science\MSc. Computer students are eligible for this.
For B.Tech Degrees some of the Universities write Computer Engg. While some Use Computer Science and Engg. , but all the subjects in both stream are Same. Although my college Authorities are ready to Provide me in written that all the subjects in both stream are same.
Earlier I have appeared for UES PFY and TGC-115 at Allahabad . TGC-115 advertisement for Computer Science was same as TGC-116.But there was no issues at that time. If there is no hope for this time then what about all the next entries of TGC and SSC Tech which specify only Computer Science and Engineering . What about the future of all Computer Engineering Graduates who wants to join Indian Army ? They didn’t allow me attend just because I have done computer Engg ,but everybody knows that both streams are same.
Can u please give me any suggestion by replying on my mail id

Dear Midhun, yes you can join the Executive branch. And it is possible to convert from SSC to PMT Commission. But in that case you will not be eligible for MARCOS. So it is adviceable to join as a PMT Commison officer through CDSE and then apply for MARCOS.

Dear Bhaskar Mondal, as an AA you will get paid around 23-26K per month initially. Getting promoted to Officer rank will happen if you do extremely well in your service and also finish your graduation by Distance Learning (since there is no regular graduation degree awarded to AA) Nature of the job will l be either in the Electrical , MEchanical or Hull branches of a ship. Training is not that tough but you will spend quite a lot of time at sea. I suggest you rethink if you are serious about becoming an Officer as this will only reduce those options.

hello Sir,
i have cleared my SSB for SSC-OTA(Non Technical)(army) and my training will commence from April 2013. My questions are
– what are the chances of getting PC in case of army (would be better if you could answer this in terms of percentage conversions of ssc) ?
– and if not selected for PC what are the future prospects ,as I have done engineering?

Kindly reply as soon as possible.

@akhil firstly congratulations brother, yes the chances are there when u performance is good and CO should recommend you for PC tthen only u will get it and if u dont get it u will retired by 14 years mostly with rank of major/Lt.Col only and then u will get many MNC jobs bro leave all those bro first start ur physical activities get ready for rigorious training as OTA is the hard training compared to any in INDIA. so all the best and bro for ur second question i am not sure ur degree will help u out in PC as u went through NTech entry CDS so i am much sure, but u have chances to get into technical field also like signals etc. i wish itried to clarify ur doubts all the best Gentle men Jai Hind Jai Jawan

sujan January 4, 2013 at 9:16 am

@amit Kumar SSB is a game of ur personality, i would like to tell you in detail but its difficult to include all the stuff by typing, but i will tell briefly bro.

as you were aware of the screening which helps the board to check out confident and required personality person who can tested for further days will be screened in.

now the real stuff comes into picture which includes
Pshycology test, — what your personality shows when u write
Interview — what your personality shows when u speak
GTO. — what your personality shows when u do.
Pshycology includes four tests-
Thematic aperception test – how you write a story when see a picture,
Word Association Test – how you write a sentence on a given word,
Situation Reaction Test – how you react for a particular situation when needed,
Self Description Test – how much you know about yourself.

Tip : give your response simple clear and natural one, Listen to the officer instructions carefully during test

Interview – here you will be interviewd by President or Deputy President of the Board on the basis of the info you wrote in PIQ which is called Personal Information Questinnaire where you will write your Details in Brief and they will ask questions about yourself which includes from childhood to till now, ur habits, hobbies and also will ask you about ur realtionship with friends etc.. about current affairs, then as you are a law student they may ask u about constitutional laws etc regarding ur subjects.

Tip : give your short clear and correct, dont bluff to Interviewing officer you will be caught bro.Listen to questions exactly and give your clear response on it. dont prolong it.

GTO : it includes 9 tests its with complete group.
2 Group Discussions – speak ur point clearly and give chance to others, never think that if u intiate only you will be able to be have more chances, its wrong it depends on your valuable points and how you behave with your group.

Group planning excercise – here there will sketch shown to you with some problems on it, you have to write your solutions and then discuss solutions and should come to conclusion with a commomn group plan. give good plan and contribute in discussion.

Progressive Group Task – your group will be given a task of four hurldles with helping material and load you should cross it by usingthe material.

Half group task – as the name sames half group, group will be divided into two groups and everything will be same as Progressive group task.

Snake Race — you will be given a rolled tent and you should compete the other groups in completing the tasks with a war cry. be helpful to group, shout the war cry as you are going for a war.

Individual Obstacle – 10 obstacles will be there you have to complete in 3 mins its not compulsary that you have complete all but its easy u can minimum complete 8 bro and this is for each individual not group.

Lecturate – here you will given four topics on a card, you have to choose one and prepare for 3 mins and give a brief summary on the topic for 3mins.

Command Task — it is similar to Progreesive and Half group task, where in this you will be the commander and sholud complete the task with ur sub oradinate s whom you will choose. Never command them sub ordiantes just tell what should done to complete task

Final Group Task – it is similar to Progressive task and half group again you group will seen how you are coordinating ur group at last after all individual tasks.

Tip — Coordinate with group, give ideas if you dont have ideas just implement others by helping the group. always cheer up your team. Listen to officer instructions carefully.

Conference — This is the day you can see all the officers in uniform and ur will get feel of you are one of them when you enter conference room. Now all three officers who checked your performance will discuss about you and see that what you wrote is matching with your what you spoke and what you did. and then decide whether to recommend you are not and sometimes if your performance is border case you will be asked some questions in conference.

Final Tip : Be cheerful , Be Natural and give your best and enjoy the stay and rest is your fate All the Best Bro. I guess i am able to clear your doubts if still you have doubts you can call me on +91-9241866842 after Tuesday. as from today i will be out of station and will be in roaming.

Hello Sir, I am a final year engineering student with major in CSE. I have been called up to attend the SSB interview at 12 SSB Bangalore on 31st of January 2013. But due to my Project Assessments in college in the same duration I wont be able to attend the interview. What should I do in that case?

I spoke to the Board but they are not having any further batch of the same entry so they are unable to postpone currently.
Although they have assured that if they get schedule in the month of March they would invite me.

Sir I am in very much doubt regarding it. What should I do? How many seats are there in UES-IT entry of Indian Navy? What are the chances of further batches in the month of march?

My concern is if I clear PABT but get rejected in medical, then will this PABT be considered if I apply for some cadre again in future or would I have to appear for it again?
I have heard that PABT can be given once, but how will the results be valid if I apply again upon failing SSB this time (but passing PABT successfully)? Does the SSB record this somewhere?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I got recommended for Indian Navy UES Pilot, have also cleared PABT. Next week my medicals start. I want to ask one thing- if everything goes okay, then what is the chance of being merit out? And if I do not get into merit for Pilot, then will I be totally dropped out of the merit list or will I be considered for the other 2 options which I filled? (We had to fill 3 options)

Please help!

Uday Kumar March 24, 2013 at 7:26 pm

Dear Mr. Shivanna, generally the cadets on completion of their first term and during their term break behave like this. I suggest you dont agree to his wishes. You must try to send him back. You can promise him that if at the end of second term also he feels the same then he can come back. Because right from second term they are no more so junior. They are better off and become seniors. So they will start enjoying it from second term. So try to convince him. But incase he does not listens to you, you might have to pay about 90,000 approximately for a term.

Sir,
I cleared the AFCAT and also got the SSB interview call. So I have some doubts regarding the medical examination. I use to wear spectacles as Im having short sight. So will that be an issue during the medical examination for the Ground duty branch? And also my height is 162 cms and I weigh only 47kg. I had done root canal treatment on one of my teeth too. So will all those be a problem for my selection? please reply

Since, I aspire to become a fighter jet aviator in the navy and fly jets like Mig-29K or Harrier, I am confused whether t go in for SSC or something else, If this is true, then please tell me the alternatives through which I will be able to become a fighter pilot in the navy..

Hello Sir ,

I am shakti singh (Age – 25 Years and 8 months) from noida, U.P. I am going to attend the SSB interview on 13th june 13 at Allahabad.
Before i proceed , would like to tell you brief about my background. I have done BE in Information Technology and MBA in Telecom+Marketing with 72 and 73 percentage respectively but i have only 51 % in 12th class and 66% in 10th class. my age is 25 Years and 8 months.

I have attempted SSB interview 4 times :-

1.Bhopal 21 SSB Screened out (2008)
2.Bhopal 33 SSB NR (Jan 2009)
2.Bhopal 33 SSB NR (May 2009)
3. Bangalore 12 SSB NR(Jun 2009)

When i was not recommended in armed forces , i decided to continue my MBA and got a campus placement and it has been 3 years in private job. I am doing good in my corporate life.

I have few questions in my mind regarding the interview and psychological test as I am attending the SSB interview after 4 Years.

-Why is your 12th % is very less ?
-Why are you coming after 4 years to attend SSB interview ?
-When you are earning approx 50 K and satisfied with your job then why are you interested in joining army ?
-How you will manage your married life after being selected in army (As i am married) ?
– My GK is very poor , how to tackle the questions related to GK?

Pysc test :-

What to write in black story ?

I am confused. People say you should write story related to 10th and 11th picture shown in TAT or Some say that you should write about your life?

Request you to please guide me so that i can clear the SSB interview.

Regards :
Shakti

It was for the SSC GS-X entry(Graduate Entry for B.E/B.Tech). Since the joining letters won’t be dispatched till November, I am a bit apprehensive.

Sir,
I have cleared my CDS 1 and expecting my SSB probably next month. My centre is Allahabad.
I have one apprehension , that I have a gap of one year in my studies between 12th and graduation.Reason was this that I was preparing for medical colleges …AFMC to be precise as I wanted to be an Army doctor but could not clear it. But is that reason valid enough , if i give in my personal Interview ?

Last time i called them they said by the end of december first week call letters would be dispatched. I resigned my job in capgemini because of the notice period issues for the sake of navy. I was told by the naval headquarters that the rejection in this form of entry is unlikely. Have i done a mistake by resigning my job?

Sir,
Good Day.
I have read all those comments posted and your suggestions are very very helpful. Thank you so much for sparing your time and suggestions. 🙂

Coming to my problem, I completed my B-Tech in Mechanical Engg in 2012 with an aggregate of 87.21 %. I was born on 05 June 1991. I am currently working in a software company in automobile field. I have a great passion towards the Indian Armed Forces. I feel like I belong there, not in some software office and so i was not able to put my effort in my current job. I am so so much eager to join in Armed Forces. I attended SSB 3 times.
First one is AFSB, Mysore on Nov-6-2012. Here, i got through the screening but i was Conference-out. I was so disappointed. But i found out my mistakes, correcred them, improved myself mentally and physically and then i again went for SSB on Dec-8-2013 for SSC-Pilot-Indian Navy. Here i was Sreened-out. I did everything well. I attempted 98 % of the O.I.R> test correctly. I did PPDT very well. I am so so much confident in myself that o would definately get through. I never thought that i would screenout. But, i was. I didn’t understand. It was a total blackout for me. Then, without second thought and wothout giving any gap, i went for my 3rd ssb 2 days later for PC-NAIC-Indian Navy. Here, also i am screeened out. Here i didn’t do PPDT well. I am so depressed. I didn’t understand what criteria SSB wants from us?
I feel like There is no field except the Armed Forces where i belong. I love to dedicate my entire life in serving my Country and my Fellow-men. I direly need to join in Armed Forces. I whole Heartedly request you to guide me in the right way.

Thank you so much for your time sir…..
Waiting eagerly for your reply.

Sir, i’ve been recommended for ssc(pilot) for December course, i just want to know if i’ll be trained to use fixed wing (MiG 29) or just rotary wing aircrafts and if i’m given fixed wing, will i be able to get a CPL after my service? if not, what to do after completion of service? will the govt, help us to secure a equally paying job? Coz, i’ve also cleared SBI PO, SSC CGL and civil and forest (waiting for the final result positive that i will get in) and am really confused which one to choose.

Hey Balachandran,

Congrats for getting recommended. There was a friend of mine who got recommended for Dec 2013 SSC Pilot course. He had the issue of Vitiligo.They tested the part of his tissue which had the mark for biopsy and on examining the tissue, they will declare if you are fit or unfit. He was considered fit and is currently undergoing training at INA.

You don’t need to worry about merit list.

No one got merited out for Jan 2014/Dec 2013 course as far as I know. The branch might change.

All the best!

Savan Tirthe.
