Indian Coast Guard Interview Process (PSB and FSB)
- Short Listing of applications: This is the first stage of the selection procedure. In this the applications are shortlisted and the shortlisted candidates are called for the further process.
- Preliminary Selection Board Interview: This is the first stage after the shortlisting of applications. It can be conducted at any of the centers which are Kolkata, Noida, Mumbai, and Chennai. It is conducted in two phases;
- The first phase is the Reasoning test. In this test the candidates are made to sit in a hall and then the questions are given on the projector screen, you have to mark the answers on an OMR sheet. Once a question goes there is no chance that you can go back to it. You are advised to take blue/black ball point. Be careful while marking the answers. It is an elimination test of duration around 40-60 minutes. The results are declared after 2-3 hours of this test and the successful candidates only are called for the further tests.
- The second phase is the PP&DT or the Picture perception
and Description Test. This is same like the test conducted in the SSB
Interview. You are advised to be careful and observe the picture shown very
minutely. You have to see the picture for 30 seconds and then write the details
like age, mood, sex etc. of the characters seen. You have to write a story
based on the characters seen in the picture. Then a discussion test follows.
Where you are divided in groups of 15-20 candidates and each candidate has to narrate
his/her own story then the group discusses and arrives at a common group story.
After this also the candidates are shortlisted and then the shortlisted
candidates get a call for the Final Selection Board.
Note: You are advised to take all the required documents very carefully to the PSB/FSB interview, if possible take one spare photocopy of each.
