Do We Need SSB Interview Coaching

This is something which most of the defence aspirants ask, we are getting lots of queries on which SSB coaching academy to join or which is the best SSB Interview coaching academy etc. But, sometimes candidates ask whether SSB interview coaching is required or can we pass SSB Interview without any professional coaching.

Now answering something like this is a difficult job, there are candidates who took SSB coaching and cleared the interview, also there are candidates who took SSB interview coaching two times and still trying to clear the SSB Interview. Candidates who never took any professional SSB interview coaching or neither joined any SSB coaching institute also got recommend from SSB. So what is the point here ?

To be very clear, no SSB interview coaching institute guarantee 100% success rate, if you think merely joining any SSB Coaching will make sure you clear your next SSB Interview, you are in dark. But that doesn’t mean it will not help you, if you join any good SSB coaching institute you will definitely double your chances of clearing  SSB Interview.

You may find candidates including recommended candidates, saying that there is no need of joining any SSB coaching and you can clear the SSB interview without any professional guidance. There are candidates who cleared it without any SSB coaching but what is the %age of them out of total candidates who applies for a particular entry and how many of them cleared it in first go without any coaching. I agree, that repeaters can clear it without any SSB coaching but only if they have ability to learn and improve. If you are a repeater and do not want to join any professional coaching institute then you have to learn it from yourself, you need to analyze your performance and have to improve it.

Now enough said, I tried to get some feedback from experts who produced many officers from their guidance. Lets see what experts say about the importance of SSB Interview Coaching.

Experts Say

Col. Devgan (group testing officer), SSB Universal Counseling , Ex Group Testing Officer

The selection is very competitive as everyone is fully prepared. Just imagine you go for exam without preparation; drive a vehicle without practice, get well without medicine, take GATE or IAS without lifting a book, is it possible, answer is big NO.
When it comes to seek job in armed forces you say you have it without preparation for SSB, is ridiculous. Why you want to play with your career looks astonishing. The GTO is trained, IO is trained, psychologist is trained through DIPR sister org of DRDO. Request all of you to prepare at your level or otherwise, is not an issue but take chances with your career, god bless
Col. Nikhil Diwanji, Niks Academy, Director Niks Academy
Any and every coaching is counter productive.. don’t join it despite discounts.  training is the key to succeed .. defence services and NIKS ACADEMY trains… results are evident.
Col. Kataria, SSMentors, Delhi, Ex. Psychologist 14 SSB Allahabad, Instructor at IMA

You learn the art of expressing or projecting your qualities through – verbal expression, body language and actions. And also nature of various tests is such that you do not come to know about your performance. So it’s important that you should follow right approach for right test which can be learned through training.

So if you think you are not confident and fully prepared for your SSB Interview, then you must join any good coaching academy without any second thought, remember your aim is to clear SSB Interview, you do it with or without coaching, it doesn’t matter.
