SSB has always been a different experience for everyone. I have heard people saying that it’s once a lifetime experience and I definitely believe that too. It’s such an exam where you have to be yourself only, no preparation, no cramming of heavy books, nothing. Just the personality assessment before going and you could be the hero of war with a chest number having a plus (+) sign on the chest. Yes that’s what everyone dreams for. Here let’s try to understand the complexity involved in assessment. It not a normal assessment as other organisations has during the placement season or the off campus drives. These things at SSB are scientifically driven. So each aspirant need to understand the basic concepts that are involved behind doing the things, they need to understand the expectations of the assessors and once this is done then the way to success is easy.
SSB is a five day long selection process and where every individual is tested on various parameters and there is search of OLQ’s. Once the officer like qualities are found that individual is recommended at the end of fifth day. SSB seems to be a tough exam because the elimination ratios are very high here. A lot of people are eliminated on the very first day and very few get chance to stay there for the rest of the four days. But believe me those who make it are a changed personality altogether. You are made felt like an officer there and also treated like one. So first day is crucial to all and it comprises of written aptitude test followed by PPDT which means picture perception and discussion test.
Though self-description is the last round of Psychology, but it has its own importance. It’s just a simple exercise where the psychologist wants to know your perception about yourself along with your closed ones. It’s very important for a person to realise that you should know yourself clearly. If you are familiar with the grantha RAMAYAN, there was Hanuman who had lot of powers but had low confidence on his capabilities. But once he was made remembered of his capabilities he can do wonders. Jamwant told him of his capabilities after which he crossed the sea and went to Lanka to give message to Sita ji. Having Capabilities is different but recognising them and using them at the right time is what is needed in an officer. This round focuses on that.

It’s the dream of every youth to have that uniform on the body, those shining stars/ rings or strips on the shoulder, those awards and medals on the chest. They are always pride for an individual. The culture that you belong to once you are an officer, the style of living, or whatever it’s totally different from the civilian culture we are part of now. Time becomes more precious and motherland the most. Their priority changes and they see things differently. Now you will be thinking that do they have all this from the very beginning.
