5 Days SSB Interview

 

I had a wonderful experience at the OTA, at first it was difficult for me to cope up with the tough training, the weather was also unfavorable, I did not have very good physical standards but somehow I managed for first few months, I didn’t give up and improved drastically. I actively participated in all curriculum activities. People have a wrong conception that you have to be good at all sports, physically strong to get selected in the SSB,  that’s not true, you just should be willing to accept your weaknesses and work on them, should always endeavor to get better and better every day. One should b honest, positive, creative and solution orientated that’s all you need rest everything will follow.” She said.
