by Uday Kumar on February 22, 2010

DO’S AND DON’TS FOR SSB INTERVIEWS

PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTS-do’s

  1. Try to showcase your positives
  2. Try to write stories/ sentences where actions are involved
  3. Try to make some heroes in that sentence /story and make him the doer of good things
  4. The hero you are portraying is supposed to have different names in different stories/sentences
  5. The  hero/person about whom you are writing is directly depicting your character as far as the psychologists are concerned
  6. Try to write as fast as possible, because you will be running short of time
  7. Practice of writing 60 sentences in 30 minutes is a must(different words)
  8. Even if a negative word is given you must not be the doer of that negative thing
  9. In that case you must write as if to pacify or nullify the negative aspects happening

PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTS-don’ts

1. Never write anything negative

2. Do not write proverbs

3. Do not write your own name

4. Do not write any bad qualities which are involved in human nature

5. Your story must be meaningful

6. Do not scribble on the papers(write legibly)

Sir,

I was selected for Indian Army once and had also cleared the merit list, but I wasn’t able to join since my parents were strictly against it. I don’t want to let go of my dreams and want to try again through a different entry. Will my not joining the Army inspite of having had the opportunity be held against my selection if I get to the SSB this time. I am really perplexed sir and your insight would be of great help in making up my decision. Thanking you and many regards.
Surya

SURYA YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS ALL SERIOUS BUSINESS…THE ARMED FORCES ARE RUNNING VERY SHORT OF OFFICERS IN ALL THREE FORCES…GETTING YOUR NAME IN THE MERIT LIST AND NOT JOINING MEANS THAT YOU HAVE WASTED ONE SEAT OF A ELIGIBLE PERSON…SO IF YOU WANT TO JOIN SO DESPERATELY MAKE A FIRM DECISION AND THEN GIVE A TRY…IT WILL BE DEFINITELY ASKED AS TO WHY YOU DIDNOT JOIN EARLIER…PLEASE GIVE A SENSIBLE AND ACCEPTABLE REASON SO THAT THE BOARD PRESIDENT IS CONVINCED AND SELECTS YOU AGAIN…ALL THE BEST…IT WILL NOT BE TAKEN IN A NEGATIVE WAY…

do the 10th and 12th marks r considered during ssb selection

Reply

Kumar February 5, 2011 at 5:22 pm

No they are not considered…if you have performed poorly, then they might ask about the reason and you must give a satisfying reply to your below average performance

dhanush panicker March 20, 2012 at 9:20 am

Sir i have attended SSB four times but all the four times i was not recommended. I knew i’m lagging somewhere. But i don’t know whether i couldn’t satisfy the interviewer or i couldn’t satisfy the board members. My last SSB i performed well in all the tests but i couldn’t satisfy the interviewer. He was asking me rapid fire questions i was answering it well. In the middle he interrupted me and asked to continue from where i have stopped. I did it well even in GTO and Pshycological Tests( I made of all resources available made positive sentences and stories). But unfortunately i couldn’t clear my ssb. My next SSB is within a short span of time. What should i do to clear the board this time?? I am waiting for your valuable suggestion. Kindly reply back. I’m waiting for your reply??

Rakshit Tyagi April 18, 2012 at 8:31 pm

Hi,
My name is Rakshit Tyagi, am 22 yrs of age and I am working in a s/w company.
I’ll be making my 9th attempt at SSBs in May and 10th in July.
So far I’ve been conferenced out 5 times and 3 times screened out.
But I don’t give up, I’ll keep on trying till I get commisioned in Armed forces.(my only regret is that I do not have any more attemts for Flying branch in IAF)
I honastly can not trace what I do wrong.
I think it is the psychological test which holds me back & being overwieght.
I request you to give me some insight of how a psychological test should be written, and I also want to know if being overweight is a big disadvantage?

Reply

KUMAR April 19, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Dear Rakshit, yes being overweight is a disadvantage but that cannot be the whole reason for disqualification. So cheer up and work in the fields that you are doubtful about!!!
