Defence life is also full of adventure, fun and toughness and that’s why thousand s of aspirants always keep trying for these forces. That’s why the process to enter the forces is highly scientific and is based on testing competencies which are known as OLQ’s in defence language through various assessments spanning over five days. These OLQ’s are nothing but the traits that are needed to serve our motherland better. Hence the selection process has been made stringent and has a high rejection rate. There are various ways to enter the defence forces, some have written exam, some are direct entries but SSB is same and common for all the entries. 


CDS exams are over now and one must be feeling relaxed after the hard work that aspirants have put in. But let me tell you this is not the right time to relax as written exams are only over and it’s just a way to reduce crowd and select few apt people who are then tested in SSB.

The following things are needed for preparation now:
