  • @Niraj

    All the question except the last one is just to check your behavior in the family and society, I guess its sounds a normal question but you should answer then wisely.

    Regarding sport questions , you should prepare at least something in detail . 🙂

  • @Admin: what does the assessor wants to know by asking a candidate about the teacher he/she likes n dislikes?

  • @Shrey They just want to see how was your behavior with your teachers and mentors. Never say that you hate someone just because that teacher scolded you or for any other reason… because again you will be going through tough training and again your bad and negative thinking about your trainers and mentors will come up there.. So they do not want that thing. .

  • @Admin sir/madam i have certain query plz do reply
    Q1: what is the seniority advantage for techies in SSC…like for TGC N UES its two years…. they permit to attend ssb of other forces like NAVY OR IAF….
    Q3 .what Happens when you switch from army to navy or air force during the course of your training…

  • @Admin..thnx a lot sir…i was expecting this…the next time i wouldn’t say that i hate a particular teacher of mine..!! Can u plz tell me some tricky questions asked by the assessor and how to tackle them..

  • @Sherty there are many questions just think properly what you gonna answer for such questions.

  • @Gajendra.. seniority will be same for same entry type… You are free to attend any SSB now so what kind of question is this??? and nothing happens when you switch your training academy.. you will face the changes not the academy people. Yes its good to join your first choice if your getting chance 🙂

  • @Admin: i will be grateful to you if u could give some examples of such tricky questions

  • hello sir
    what are the expected interview questions fore NCCC spl entry..?? would u suggest me some..??

  • @Shrey I will try to do it in next post sometime… 🙂

  • @Raghuveer…

    There is no diff in SSB , yes as you have mentioned what kind of questions will come for NCC entry ??

    So they may ask you anything about NCC …rest will be the same level of questions..

  • @Admin: Sir plz do that will be of great help to all the aspirants!

  • may i kno wat r d likely ssb dates 4 NCC spl entry 31st course..?

  • sir m 8th time repeater ,,,and what to say when i will asked y u not selected in the previous 7 attempts plz tell me

  • @ Awdesh

    First of all do not think that repeaters are not considered equally as Fresher, apparently repeaters have more chance.

    They will ask you about your opinion regarding your past performance, they just want to see whether or not you have the capability to judge your self and your performance in the past attempts.

    So just think about your performance and tell them where you were lacking earlier and what sort of measures you have taken to perform better in future.

    Always accept your earlier drawbacks and try to work on them, yes you have more chance to get recommend if you have analysed what you need to do…All the best 🙂

  • sir how can i explain the 7 failures please tell as i was screen out also in these attempts please tell me what type of things i have to answr in this questions

  • @Awdesh

    Do not think that your 7 attempts are obstacles for you, I would say you have more chance because you have faced it many times. You will be asked about ” How do you analyse your past performances.

    In other words they want to know how can you judge you past performance, one who can judge his own performance can improve.

    When ever you are asked about you past performance never feel sad, keep smiling and show that you still have the courage and determination to face the challenge and tell them where are you lacking and how did you practice to improve your weaknesses .

  • ok sir thanks

  • @Admin:What should the response be like when asked about the past performance ??

  • @Shery Just tell you good and weak points. Prepare this question well.

  • @admin: My batchmates were trying too many things during PGT. 10 ppl n 100 ideas n things were just messing up. Do you think it will be a bad idea to say this to the IO?

  • @Shery its like blaming others .. and you may be correct but you can’t say that I mean its like blaming others for your failure.

    There is a way to say the same thing…you could say that there were no proper planning in the group member earlier so we were not performing well in GTO series, but this time I had a proper planning with my group members and we you to talk in the free time regarding to know each others strength and weaknesses..and you can add many more things.

  • @Raghuveer

    its in April 2012 so likely dates will be in November 2011.

  • @ADMIN: What is the assessor looking for when he asks a candidate abt his daily routine n also the pocket money n the expenditures??

  • @Shrey

    Daily routine is to know what you do most of the time and in free time specially, how you utilize it and all similar stuff, pocket money is also same, like where do you spend .

    Such question are just to know about your personal life so just face it in a normal manner .

  • hello sir, though i was interviewed one time, the interviewing officer will ask me the same questions or anything different? please suggest me.

  • @Ratish yes there are few sets of questions which are asked each and every time.

  • @Admin: How does the board decide if a candidate has put up a better performance than the previous ssb?

  • @Shery..

    If you are getting recommend then obviously you have done better than your last performance…

    If your not getting recommend then there is no question about your previous performance.

  • thank you sir

  • this is really a wooooooooonderful page……

  • @Admin: It is generally said that the assessors match the present performance with the previous one for a repeater..So i wanted to know if they possess the old records of a candidate’s performance..

  • @Shery What matters is your present performance, if you do up to the mark then there is no question of comparing past performance …also it doesn’t matter at that time.

  • @Admin: As requested earlier by me, plz give me some instance of some easy looking but tricky questions asked during the interview and also tell me how to tackle them…I have ssb coming up shortly, plz help me out..

  • @Shery what ever the questioned mentioned above are sufficient, IO may ask any thing and that depends on the IO only so just try to get the details about you , your family and friend is sufficient.

    And the questions are not difficult its common but you should respond to them wisely after thinking.

  • @Admin in my previous ssb, during the PGT all the members were just speaking of their own and nobody was listening to other. in that situation what should we do? like we should also have to speak without listening the others? and whats being judged in snake race? plz reply thanks…

  • @Maninder Singh Gill

    PGT is all about giving idea and applying it effectively .

    When others shout you try to make them calm and tell them to apply every bodies idea one by one, also you think of your own idea show them how to do. GTO is judging you so he should see you working in the group and coming out with good ideas..Fools just yell but clever thinks and do…

    Snake race is a group task like other, but its a kind of war situation, so what are you suppose to do in war time ??? help other members to pass the obstacles ..that’s it 🙂

  • @ admin thats right sir , sir which officer is prefered in promotion or any other events one who entered through NDA or any other . so , is it any thing that differs among offficers in terms of seniority.

    • It could be anything, just keep improving in every thing, may be you are a border line case. Just analyse your performance and keep on working on them. Keep trying is the only solution.

    • No, you have to make another sentence

    2) Is there any means by which I can know my performance In SSB interview? I mean can I ask the IO about my positive & negative aspects at the end of interview?
    3) when the IO asks any questions at the end, what should I ask?

    what are your best & worst days of your life?
    greatest mistake & achievement?
    whom like & dislike ?why?

  • Dear Sir,

    After going through this post, i felt like the most important parts in an Interview is
    A. Knowing about yourself
    B. Introspecting you previous mistakes(If a Repeater)
    C. Telling the truth
    D. Knowing about current events.

    1.My Question is if you have analyzed yourself and tell truth about the questions being asked, will there be a yes from the I.O side.
    2. How much does knowing about current events matter, though i have heard people saying it don’t matter much but have also seen candidates who come out stating that questions pertaining to only G.K was asked and they couldn’t answer all properly.

    So just got a bit confused about G.K and thought to clear my doubts with you.

    Waiting for your reply.
