If you are preparing for the SSB interview for Army, Navy and Airforce, do not forget to read “Let’s Crack SSB interview” and “Breaking the Code Of SSB Psychology“. Hi defence aspirants, how’s the josh. I’m Rajbir Sandhu and I’m from Amritsar. (Fourth Gen Army Officer in making). “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more,you my friend are a True leader”. Recently I got recommended from 14 SSB Allahabad known as the rejection centre in TGC 131. I’m gonna share my story from the bottom to motivate defence aspirants.
Day 1. Screening – 150 candidates reported. This was my second attempt and I got a repeaters batch. OIR- 100/100 attempted. PPDT- Perceived the picture clearly, my story was different from others. Eg a blurred image of a girl wearing a skirt. All of them made that girl old women whereas I made her a young girl going for a match. This point helped me convince and counter others in GD. The narration was crisp. Overall. Be alert when the picture is shown. The result- 40 got in. 10 were from my group. I got chest no 34.
Day 2.psch. Attempted all TAT, WAT, SRT. Tip- SRT should be practical. Eg -you and your friends lost the way in the jungle. You will….. Most of them wrote North stars and stuff.. I wrote use google map and get out. Therefore, the answer should be short and crisp. Attempt as many as you can.
Day 3,4.GTO 1,2 GD was awesome. I won over others by stating examples and stated different perspective like socio- eco- pol aspects of the given topic. GPE- done with logic and practicality. Mention time and place. PGT – give simple and practical ideas and cooperate with others. In my view, HGT is very important, even more than PGT. Be a leader with ideal solutions. Snake race – the most vital task after HGT, in this group sensibilities are showcased. Lecurette – I picked an average topic and spoke vital points. My topic was looking east policy. Posture and confidence matters
Interview – Day4. In GTO dress I went to the deputy president ‘s office. He asked me too many technical questions related to army and my stream. Like artillery guns. Infantry brigades in my city etc. But I was honest about what I knew and stayed calm during this. I showcased.my vulnerabilities to him during the interview, and He was taken aback by my confidence. Point to be noted – rapid-fire sequence is very vital to remember. Overall my interview was a decent one.
Conference day – It went for ten mins. I was asked an SRT related corruption within my company. I gave a logical answer and further told them my future plans that are cracking the IAS exam. After which president asked me about Scandinavian countries which I knew. After my conference I was confident about my recommendation and the result was no surprise. 5 of us got recommended. After 4 washout batches at Allahabad.
One of my group member who got conference out had another SSB of CDS IMA the next day in the nearby SSB ie 34 SSB. He got screened in and for the next 4 days while my medical was going on, I guided me all the way. And further got recommended. It’s my dream, to create more leaders because
A true leader is the one who stands for others and builds character by helping his mates.
Finally, I made it, and now ready to become 4th generation officer in my family. Waiting for my merit list now. Thanks, Almighty for this success. Jai Hind.
