Vital Tips To Help You Cracking Service Selection Board (SSB) Interview

Services Selection Board (SSB) is the Personality and Intelligence Interview, which is a process of five days. This process helps to evaluate the capability and suitability of the candidate through scientific reasoning for being hired in the Armed Forces of India.

The interview process followed by the SSB is devised for examinating the mental approach and competence of the candidates. The interview process is carried out in a way to not only evaluate the scholastic abilities of the candidate but also to verify his social traits and awareness of current affairs.

The SSB (Service Selection Board) evaluates certain qualities of the candidates such as:

  • Logical reasoning
  • Group Behavior
  • Leadership skills
  • Decision making skills

The following is a checklist that can be followed to get some help to qualify the SSB interview:

º         The officer who is interviewing at the SSB will aim involving the candidate in a dialogue to evaluate his leadership qualities. The first thing evaluated while checking for leadership qualities is confidence when the candidate speaks. Hence the candidate should remember to speak confidently and avoid using fancy words. Good communication skills are essential to be able to explain your point. The candidate must make sure he understands the concept of leadership skills and must use the right set of words to display his leadership traits during the interview.

º         After evaluating for leadership qualities, the board committee would check for the knowledge of the candidate in the subject of his interest. The board tests through conversation and discussing different concepts of the subject that how much accurate information a candidate has about different subjects.

º         Once the SSB board has evaluated the theoretical knowledge of the candidate, the practical application of the theoretical knowledge is checked. It is important that the candidate is able to transform his conceptual knowledge into a practical situation. Hence the candidates who are more practically experienced have an edge over other candidates with no prior experience.

º         An integral part of the interview screening process is evaluating the knowledge of general events and happenings of the candidates. The questions can be framed out of the latest happenings in the areas of sports, science or politics. Hence the candidate must make sure to have read adequate magazines and newspapers in order to be updated with the latest events.

º         Throughout the conversation, the SSB board also checks the comprehending capabilities of the candidate. It evaluates the time consumed by the candidate in order to comprehend a question, subject or scenario.

º         Fluency of speech is another quality that is evaluated and tested throughout the interview.  The candidate must speak fluently in a moderate pace. All the points must be explained one by one and the candidate should not rush through what he has to say. The candidate must aim to speak with a proper reasoning and logic to convince the interviewers about his view point.

To conclude with, it is important to remember that an overall pleasing personality and a smile create a good first impression of the interview as a whole. It is important to listen actively during the interview so that no important points are missed out.
