What Is De Novo Selection System? 3-Day SSB Interview Procedure Explained

The existing Services Selection Board (SSB), in vogue since 1948, is a five-day long process for officer selection which includes an interview, group testing and psychological testing of the aspirants.

Many candidates might feel the same if asked whether they find the current SSB interview system old and do they think there is an endless scope to improve the current SSB interview system. The current SSB interview system is running since 1948 with minor changes. The current SSB interview is a 5-day interview procedure where a candidate is tested for his personality using three different tests namely psychology, GTO and personal interview.

The SSB procedure in the Army takes five days and hence an SSB is able to handle 60 batches in a year only (five batches per month). With the large number of candidates applying to join the Army, it is felt that the selection system should be able to assess suitable potential candidates within two to three days, thus enabling ability to handle more batches in a year.
