5 Days Procedure of AFSB Interview

AFSB is the same thing as SSB is, i.e. service selection board interview. Here in AFSB AF stands for Air Force. There are four centers in our country where this AFSB interview takes place. Mostly the AFCAT entries and NDA and CDSE entries (who have given their preference as flying) go there for interview. These centers are in Dehradun (1 AFSB), Mysore (2 AFSB), Gandhinagar (3 AFSB) and Varanasi (4 AFSB). Let us see in detail what happen in AFSB. The whole procedure is being looked upon from AFCAT interview point of view, the timings might differ in case of NDA and CDSE interviews, however the tests remain the same.

5 Days Procedure of AFSB Interview

  • Day 1: This is the screening day in AFSB and you are generally asked to report early morning by 6:45-7 am at the railway station. You are taken in a bus from there to the selection center and then the testing begins. First you are asked to fill in some forms, then you are taken for OIR tests. After which PPDT is conducted. Based on the strength, generally the results are announced by 3 pm and the selected candidates are allotted rooms, the remaining are sent to the railway station. The document check follows for the selected candidates immediately and after that you are free for the day.
  • Day 2: On the second day the candidates who have applied for Flying branch are taken for PABT tests, which continues generally till 12 pm. After this the psychological tests follow. They are approximately of 2 hours duration and once they are over you are free for the day.
  • Day 3,4 and 5: Your interview and GTO tests might fall on any of these days. Generally you get one free day in AFSB. Some of you might have your GTO/Interview on the last day also. Some may have GTO/Interview on the same day but of course the timings wonโ€™t clash for the two. You might be required to go directly from GTO to the interview. You are required to carry the folder of all your certificated, academics and extra-curricular to the interviewer. The interview is generally a 30 minutes-60 minutes procedure. Youโ€™ll be informed well in advance through a notice placed on the notice board about the schedule of your tests.

You result is discussed there. You are called in the conference hall and the process is of hardly a minute, it may stretch for border liners. After the conference your results are announced, its lunchtime by now. Those who make through are asked to stay back for the remaining formalities and others are taken back to the railways station.
  • Medical: In AFSB the medical may not immediately take place after selection. You will be given a date for the medical.

          • Prabhjot Singh

            naah yr..cudnt make it ๐Ÿ™ conference out ๐Ÿ™ everything went gud but still cudnt make it thru..
            experience was just too gud..it ws my first ssb n i loved it…i am much more dedicted now about becoming a part of air force..the respect, the personality they have is just exactly what i need in my life ๐Ÿ™‚
            anyways hw ws uas?? uas was on 9th nov if i am not wrng..

          • Harmandeep Kaur

            yeah mine was on 10 nov but routed back in first 10 mins only :p I missed my 10th passing certificate, and now called again in dec I was having only dmc of 10th std.
            may I know about group planning tasks and HGT FGT bla bla….. I am blank all about these how to prepare for these?

          • Prabhjot Singh

            oh ๐Ÿ˜› neva mind, you still have a chance ๐Ÿ™‚
            for HGT FGT, i would advise you about few things…firstly, dont try to grab much material or prepare much, just be yourself…seconfly, try to give the best of the ideas you can provide to your team..but yea, if you dun have any idea, just help your team and the ideas given by the other mates..in our batch, one of the student who came up with the least ideas, but helpd all to his best, got selected to our surprise..now, you must have got my point.
            then one more thing is never ever violate any rules..dont get nervous, just be confident and be cooperative in the tasks, that is the much needed thing..
            Give ua best, you ll be selected..ATB (y)

            P.S.: i didnt follow some (1 or 2) of the above rules..so these are outcome of my experience there (y)
