What GTO Looks for In a Group Discussion?

What GTO Looks for In a Group Discussion?
Group Discussion or GD has been a part of regular selections for any organisation but there will be GD’s that will happen in SSB too, but with different tone. The GD that happens at the time of screening round would be based on group discussing the hazy picture while the GD that happens during the GTO round would be based on some topic of interest. The similarity between the GD’s is that in all the things that happen for SSB, the OLQ’s are only being judged in the aspirant. The difference lies in the GD’s that happen in SSB and other jobs is that everything is psychologically judged at SSB and search of qualities is there. So remember this in mind and perform and prepare accordingly.

How difficult is SSB Interview?

How Difficult is SSB Interview?
Service Selection Board interviews are a six day process, in which your personality is monitored and matched with the suitability of joining the forces. If you are suitable you are recommended otherwise not. We tend to hear different theories about this interview from different sources. People getting recommended have different opinions, and those not getting recommended have yet another opinion. I am sure that before going for SSB you try to collect as much of information regarding it as possible. And thus you hear different versions of SSB stories from different sources. Here we will focus on understanding how difficult SSB interview is? To begin with, SSB is not a normal job interview where you have to study your head off in order to crack it. SSB is different. It hardly checks your knowledge; it just checks your suitability for the forces. This suitability is not entirely based on your knowledge. You can thus say that SSB is a multidimensional interview. It checks your entire personality.

SSB Repeaters Exclusive: Motivation is the Key

SSB Repeaters Exclusive: Motivation is the Key
I will not begin by saying come depressing crap like “life is this” and “life is that”, I would like to begin by saying that you are young, you have the time, and you can conquer the world! It is a wonderful thing in itself that you have chosen joining the forces as your aim. Now all you need to do is be motivated all this time, for the same. Once you go to SSB and get rejected there are chances that you are clueless about what went wrong. SSB is one such interview where it is very difficult to make out that where you lacked or in which area you did not perform well. There might be hundreds of thoughts running in your mind, hundreds of calculations that what might have gone wrong, what to do about it. You might have numerous expectations on you; you might have expectations from yourself. It is all very common and very good!
