The quality base of SSB is different as compared to other defence interviews. Fresher finds it confusing and repeater perceives it untangled. Well, the most crucial part of the interview which is a game changer of SSB, is the personal interview in which interviewing officer decides the past, present and future of a candidate by having a conversation with the candidate. Several kinds of questions are asked in the personal interview. But the mostly asked and mind wracking question of personal interview is to “tell me about yourself”. Candidates find it hard to select the area and limits which they have to cover while responding to this question.

Basic Introduction – The beginning of this question must be with the basic information about you like your name parents’ name, schooling, percentage of marks, etc. It will show the base of your life and further build-ups in life.

Summarize Everything – Every point of yourself must be explained in a summarized form not in a lengthy way. It is better in two ways. Firstly, it saves you time and covers all points and secondly, it don’t bores the interviewing officer.

Avoid Absurd and Irrelevant Matter – A single mistake can take you away from your aim or what you want to convey. This can also lead you to the marsh of counter questions where candidates surely get struck. Lying and attempt to bluff interviewing officer is a wrong practice.


Your Achievements – Most important part of answering this question is to present your achievements in front of IO. No matter how small your achievement is, nobody knows what IO can observe or perceive from your minor achievements. Your skills and qualities are included in this section. Just summarize them and in most of the times you will be cross questioned by Interviews.

End it on Your Current Status – The end of the reply to this question must be in the way that describes your current status of life and your future plans and possibilities. . Your aim and motto behind the future advancement should also be a part of the wrapping up of this question.

Avoid non-essential Matters – Don’t include nonessential matters in briefing your personality. Your failures, shortcomings, etc. should not be included in this part. It doesn’t mean that you don’t have any shortcomings, or you have never faced failures. Just brief your time when you are asked about them.SSB Interview Army
