What Is Lecturette And How To Perform Well In It

Hello friends this article is about lecturette. As each test in SSB is equally important same thing applies here. Ultimately GTO wants to collect enough data about our personality, through all these tests, and our aim must be to provide him the things he wants to see in a candidate to pass him. So through a good lecturette you can show him some of the most important qualities of your personality.

As in this test no one is going to interrupt you while speaking, so your performance depends totally upon you. Your self confidence, stamina level, expression without hesitation and not to forget your knowledge about the topic will be tested here.
Arrangements of the test: rest of your group will be sitting and 1st candidate will get up take a card and walk away from the group, now this card has four topics example

Now in these topics you are free to select any topic. My advice is select average topic and be confident about that. As 2 out of four will be average topics and one will be below and one will be above average. If you have very good general awareness then you can also go for the tougher one. Now you have to select one topic and prepare a lecturette on it in 3 mins. After three minutes the first candidate will come, stand facing the group and will talk over the topic for next 3 min. when he arrive next candidate will take his card and will do the same.

Techniques to improve your lecturette

Most important thing is practice, more practice, and daily practice.  And few others are:-
  1. Friends make good reading habits, be updated, talk to your friends in English, make your mastery on the common topics like Indo Pak relations, drug abuse, global warming, power of press, Indian missile development program, etc a list is available on SSBCrack so you can follow that link also.
  2. Be in touch with people whom you meet at different SSB and keep asking them about their all 4 lecturette topics. Make writing habits.
  3. Use camera or mobile phone to make video of yourself wear a short and t shirt and give lecturette on topic of your choice even try to give you introduction. And watch it carefully. Because you can’t watch yourself while speaking. So how you will correct your mistakes. Analyse your standing posture, facial expression, hand gestures and also listen if you are hesitating in speaking. It will help you to introspect, remove your hesitation and also it is a fun activity. You can judge yourself and can be more presentable and impressive.
All the best keep preparing.
