This is narayana. I have applied for nda, army tes, navy tes. My pcm % is 98.67. Will it be better to take coaching or simply go through ssb materials and books?

Reply

KUMAR June 11, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Narayana, if you have the time and facility to go for coaching then you can go. But if you are quite confident about yourself,your language and knowledge then coaching is not required. The SSb materials are more than enough!!!

Narayana June 13, 2012 at 8:55 am

Thanks for your suggestion kumar.

Vani, definitely it will give you some more confidence..
Instead of going blank, you will have an idea how SSB is going to be and you can anticipate the entire process and work smartly.
I will even email you certain materials in soft copy so that you can start the preparation rightaway..

Sir, i have some doubts regarding dress code.For women can you explain about the dress code.Are we supposed to wear salwars for the interview. I used to wear specs.are we supposed to wear specs for the GTO Tasks.I do wear contact lens also.Sir,if i put specs is there any problem.Sir for the self description when we are asked to write the opinion of teachers can we write as follows:”My teacher says i am good in studies”,the doubt is whether she or i is to be used.Sir kindly reply me.
