Allahabad SSB interview experience

Hi everyone,

Allahabad SSB :-17 Jan to 22 Jan 2010.

In this blog i am going to share my experiences at allahabad 11 SSB board. These five days (5+7 for medical) were a great fun.We were the absentee batch as most of the people did not arrive on their first call .Though I  received  the first call but that time due to preparation of my air force exam ,i was not able to attend the first one.I was not happy with my decision of  not attending the SSB.One day i was thinking that i have done a mistake by leaving  my chance and then i prayed to god ,do whatever is good for me.When i got up after my nap, i was surprised to see that my mom had my absentee call letter in her hands.I was very happy to see that and i accepted it as a golden chance given to me by god.

We arrived at the Allahabad station very late from the time given  to us because of the train delay.So we were not provided with the bus service and we managed at our own to reach SSB selection center EAST.When we reached there,girls were already gathered in the hall for filling up the documents,which we fill on our arrival.(including PIQ,TA DA,and many more.)Then we went to our line area were blankets were provided and we were done for the day.After our dinner,we went early to sleep after a short introduction to other candidates who came there for the interview.

In the evening we had briefing about what will be expected from us in the place and next morning we had our screening test.

DAY 01:-

The screening test comprised of verbal and non verbal aptitude test and also picture perception test and a group discussion on its basis. In the picture perception test(known as PP and DT), we were shown a very blur image and we had to write a story on it and conditions on what led to that situation and what will happen in the future.

The intelligence test is a short and simple paper where you need to use some brains and quickness.Our first paper was of 25 min and second was of 17 min.I did well in both of them.

Then in the picture shown to us i was able to see a girl standing with a big chart paper in front of her(which i assumed as a survey chart paper)(others said it a dead body covered with white bedsheet)and a boy standing nearby her.So we got different perceptions of the same picture.so i made the story that there was a traffic police officer who  was recently posted in a  new area and she came to know about the increase in road accidents .So she decided to run a programme in which people would be made more aware regarding the traffic rules.She along with her subordinates took various steps and she was able to decrease the accidents.Various people made different stories..the assumed her as an architecture,engineer and many other ideas…

Then we had a GD and we had to boil down to one story and finally it was agreed that their was a girl who planned to run a pepole awareness programme regarding golbal warming.The GD was good and we had a healthy dissucion with good points.I was satisfied with my performance and was expecting good results.The results came out at 2pm after our lunch.Out of 93 girls,25 were screened in and rest has to leave on that day.We were given chest numbers and my chest number was 12. Next  day again early in the morning we were called up for next set of tests.We took our bags and went back to line area.I remember the words of a GTO sir ,”dont be very happy,ye to sirf trailor tha,puri film to abhi baaki hai”It means that you have just cleared the first step,whole selection process in front of you. Now we had more time to know about each other.We talked to our friends who were left and we went out in the evening.We were allowed to visit the city during our stay,but we have to be back in our selection area by 5pm.At night after chit chatting.we slept quite late at 11:30pm.We were provided with “fauji balack kambal”,the temperature was very low and it was bitter cold there.Anyways we had a good sleep with the thought that we are not sent back on the very first day.

DAY :-2

Now it a important day as the tests are starting today.We were given breakfast at 6:30am and the biggest punishment was to get so early in the morning in chilling cold.But we all went for the breakfast and after that we have to gather in the hall at 8:00am.We were ready and reached the hall at 7:50am.Now we were shown 12 more pictures including one blank picture.I wrote 12 stories and it was really tiring.Picture is shown for 30 sec and story should be written  with in 3 min.Then comes the 60 words ,we were told to write down the first sentence coming to our mind from that word.Then 10 mins break was given to us.After that we settled down again and now we have SRT Test that is situation reaction test.There were 120 SRTS which we have to do in 30 mins. Last is SD self description test,write what your parents think about you,your teachers,friends,and you yourself. I thought that i performed well in every test and i was satisfied with my performance.

When we went to our line area(living area)after our lunch,we were told till chest no 12,interview will be conducted. so now i was ready for my second battle.My time for interview was 4:20m.So at 2:00pm,i slept(somehow i was not able to sleep due to the excitement of interview,but i took rest so that i can feel fresh.).After taking a nap,i got up and took bath.I was ready for the interview in white suit,blue pajami and white sweater.Overall i think i was looking smart becuase it would create my first impression on the interviewer.I went into the are of interview room and there was a waiting hall where i was asked to sit. When i went in room it was empty,only with the postures saying “DO YOU HAVE IT IN YOU”and i was saying “YES I HAVE IT IN ME AND I WILL PROVE IT” .There was a T.V in the room and peon uncle asked “beta T.V dekh lo”but i said thank you uncle but i dont want to.  Then i started chanting the gayatri mantra,as it would help me to be more calm in interview.THEN comes my turn,i went into the room,wished the sir sitting in a big chair.He asked me to sit down and my interview started with The first question which was asked to me was”your dad was in army ,which palces you have visited,what you like about army and the difficulties faced.” I answered the question satisfactorily and then he started the RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS(which means a series of questions all asked together )He asked me about my family,education,subjects in graduation,friends.He put questions like if i make you education minister,what reforms you would like to make in our education system,ranks of army,why i do meditation,from where i learnt it,what type of friends i avoid,my schedule,about my pocket money,to whom i am close.Then he came to the G.K section,this is something i am really bad at.He asked me about srilanka,china,wars India has fought,about nepal P.M.I answered 3 questions and was not able to answer 2 questions.At last he asked me about my strength and weakness.I told him truly that i m  not very good at G.K and i am trying hard to improve on it.This was the interview,i was o.k. with my interview ,but not very satisfied because i was not able to answer 2 G.K questions.But i would like to share that i never said anything false there,everything i spoke was 100% true,that was the biggest satisfaction to me.

Then i came back to my line area and it was 5:30Pm,so all friends were back from out pass.They asked mre about my interview.We had lots of fun at the canteen area.I wrote this 1st SSB interview experience  in my diary at night.

DAY:-03

On third day we got up late and we were not able to have our breakfast.So we had some choclates,and managed from them only.We were asked to move to the GTO ground where a no. of tests were waiting for us.Our first exercise was two group disscussions.The topic for the first one was based on our law system followed by second one based on girls in defence forces.Here friends,I would like to advise you dont speak too much or very less.Whenever you speak give a strong point.
Our next activity was GPE,that is group planning exercise in which we were given 4 problems which we have to solve in the given time period.Five minutes are given to write down yiur sol. on a paper.Then there would be a GD to find out the best sol.After that GTO sir will ask one person to stand up and narrate the sol.to the whole group and in my group I gave the common sol.
GOR that is group obstacle race.It was the most wonderful activity in the whole SSB in which your group has to run with a snake(made from a stuff like jute bag).We have to choose a war cry and complete the obstacles as soon as possible without breaking the rules.
Our next activity was PGT which is progressive group task.With the help of helping material you have to cross all the obstacles.You must give workable ideas and help the group as much as possible.then we had HGT,half group task,in which the group will be divided into half and then we  have to find solutions for the obstacle.
Next was IO that is individual obsticles.I enjoyed doing it and i completed all.While doing obstacles please do not bring any sign of fear on your face.
We were very tired as lots of activities were conducted on this day.We had our lunch and then we went to roam in the city.

DAY:-4

It was the last day for our activities so we started with the LECTURETTE in which you have to speak on the topic for three min.When i got my card,i selected to speak on “role of media “.I spoke confidently for 3 min.our next task was CT,command task in which you will be the commander of the task and your sub-ordinates will work according to your instructions.make sure that other friends will call you as subortinates,it shows how many friends did you made.Our last task was FGT  which is final group task.
At night we saw the movie”WANTED” of salman khan and we really enjoyed that .

DAY :-5
The final day of judgement is conference .So we were ready in the morning in the best dress as you will meet the whole board under the same roof.We were ready and we went to the hall.After that the conference started and when i went,i felt very nice as to see so many officers in dress was a great pleasure.They asked me questions regarding my stay over there and any suggestions.I answered well.
THE GREATEST happiness was that ,when it was asked from one of my friends that who all are your good friends and why ,mention them.She took my name and said that she is very helpful,cooperative and jolly natured.Another girl was asked that what did you learn from your friends she said that from chest no 12 i learnt how to chill out everytime.
I was happy that i made so good friends in such a short span of time.After some time the result of the conference was declared and 7 girls got recommended.Luckily ,i was one of them.

So this was my SSb experience,after that our medical started,in which they found a  stone in my gall bladder.I went for an operation and i m o.k. now.Then my Merit list came ..From the 7 selected girls,i was the only one who was in merit list,as vacanices are only 7.So finally i am joining OTA in APR 2010…

HOPE TO SEE MOST OF YOU IN FUTURE THERE..GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR SSB ,DO WELL.

Lemme know if u liked the blog ,, only a thanku will work ! Any improvement s pls let me know.

  4. thanks a lot!!!!!!!
    i have read your blog, you won’t believe its has been rocking, as its accelerate my speed on way to IMA as well. i m undergraduate, and cant hold the time to take actions at SSB.as u mentioned above that they had found a gall bladder in ur stomach and u op rationed it latter. then i want to know that,was it not treat as a medical unfit object at ur first time medical fitness test?

    i have six nails on myleft foot,its right that i have five fingers as common. but the little finger of my left foot, contains two nails that means one extra nail on that particular finger and it looks like some fatter, then other right foot’s little finger. i wanna know how it will treat in medical test.will i be decleared as unfit person???????? or any way???
    help m!!!!!!! AFTER ALL YOU ARE A SUCCESSFUL DEFENSE PERSONNEL.

    1. Hi ,

      first of all good luck for ur ssb..now let me clear ur myths…ur first query is that i was not treated as unfit after first medical test.Yes,i was unfit but once if u r unfit for the first time.They give u duration for 45 days to cure the problem.So i get operated with in 45 days and reported to the command hospital.

      Regarding your 6 nails ,i really dont know,but i am leaving for academy tomorrow,i will ask a medical officer there n let u know.

      The difficult u mentioned abt the sports and ncc,its not important to participate..u can tell them truly the conditions over there.they understand it.but start playing a game even at ur home,learn the rules from book or internet..it will help u..if are not good in sports and extra activities,its o.k. but please work alot on ur communication skills because thats the most important.
      I can see that u have written so well here…so keep working hard..u will make the dream of your parents true.
      My GOOd wishes are always wid u..

      Regards
      Anita Rajput.

  5. i haven’t NCC certificate nor any extra co-curricular activities likes games or social works, due to lack of opportunities. i belongs to a remote area of Jharkhand so i m pursuing a Bsc. degree from a rural university,where all aboves are not easy to survive. it may be a reason to rejection on my ssb?. my parent have a dream to stick two stars on my shoulders. and i want to do it for my parent ANY HOW

  32. on feb 25th i am goin to attend FSB for the first time. I had lots of doubts regarding the procedures.and your post was a real help for me. Further I had a gall bladder operation 5 yrs back. Was a bit worried for that, but now I hink its nt at all a matter. Thank you for enhancing my morale. If possible continue with some more points for cracking the AFSB….waiting for your next post..!!

  33. On 25th Feb, I am going to appear my first ever AFSB. Your post over here has been of immense help as I was having lots of doubts regarding the same and which I was unable to get from anywhere else. To add up I had a gall bladder operation 5 years back and for that I was a bit worried. But after reading your blog I think I am relaxed now.
    Thanking you for your details regarding SSB, and hope I will be able to get some more of these confidence building materials in the coming days.

  34. Kudos to u… Hope u r enjoying your service with army… tell us about your experience in Training at OTA… I’ve also cleared my ssb at 18 SSB ALD… # Hope u r still using this blog..!!

  35. ur blog enhance my confidence level …me just graduate now…………having strong desire to be an officer in armed forces..

  36. hi.on 6th of may i am going to appear for my airforce ssb in mysore.i am really confused about the psychology test.i just wanted to enquire dat can we write open sentences in wat.like if the word is think,can we write think clear and act fast.or if the word is heritage,can we write protect natural heritage..i am really confused.on many sites i have read that we should not write sentences that preach.plz help

  37. Hello madam. Hw r u? I just wanted to know if we can wear trouser and shrt or a saree during our interview. And what costume are we supposed to wear during ground tasks?

  38. really . . .a wonderful experience u told . . .i also want to join defence . . .now i am enrolled as non commisioned . . . .trying 4 commision . . .thanks

  39. First of all I congratulate you for getting into OTA. Although, I came across your blog a bit late, but anyways….there are certain things which I observed and felt strongly for it. I shall mention my observations point-wise:
    Firstly, why are you so obsessed with being a Rajput girl? Has it given you some advantage in SSB? If people constantly harp upon
    their origin as a distinguishing factor rather than their innate sense of humanity, I fear that deep rooted casteism shall never leave the Indian soil.
    Secondly, I perceived that it was not your experience which you were sharing. But, a summary of the events which I guess every person going to appear for the SSB first time would definitely know, as it is mentioned in the call-up letter. In the guise of sharing experience you have bragged about your “being lucky” to get screened-in and recommended. Some observations regarding the tests or your experiences with the officer’s evaluating would have helped more. (If that was your intent in the first place)
    Thirdly, I read in one of your replies to a comment you talked about having good communication skills to some person. Now, isn’t it obvious…..having good communication! But, I am mentioning it because at some places in your blog you have used wrong grammar and wrong spelling. (What’s the rush, if that’s your only excuse.)
    Fourthly, it is my personal opinion- that is the most un-fittest blog to be called an “experience of SSB”. It is highly filled with notions of self appraisal and estimation, which I feel is justified as you are in top 7. (A big deal, I know.)

    1. First of thanxzzz yash for ur valuable comments..n sec if u are nt able to mk it in ur lyf plzz stop being jealous,,;)dat i can see:)anyways dat is ur problem??no one is perfect so m i:)i wrote dis blog so dat ppl can get a fair idea abt ssb,.if u dnt wanna read ur wish,keep ur fuking comments in ur mind,good luck

  45. Dear Rajput girl,

    My son also has encountered the same problem of gall bladder stone while under going medical in PSB of Indian coast guard and he has been temporarily unfit.

    He immediately undergone surgery (Within three of declaring Temp Rejection).and gave appeal.

    When he appeared before Appeal medical Board after 12 days of surgery, they said that gall bladder removal makes 8 week unfit from the date of Surgery. So he has to go for Medical Review Board.

    But Problem is that Coast Guard will prepare the merit list stating that the selection procedure is already delayed.

    Is my son eligible to get sufficient time to become fit and to get through the Med review Board ?

    My Son is so desperate Please Guide Me so that I can Pacify him..

  56. Hellooo
    I read ur blog today.. it really boosted my morale.. I have been to allahabaad ssb last year in december . unfortunately i was conference out and dint make it. Your blog is really inspiring . I will be appearing for next ssb and i will definately make dis time.. Thankx .. God bless

  57. hello mam,
    I went Allahabad in this month, but screened out. and from my group, two of them made in last fifty.
    i have faced so much “Negativity” in my every aspect of life since second class. because of that i could not achieve something in sports even though I had potential but you know, our system,
    to achieve(to get selected for school representation) I have fought but in every fight , winner was already declared and this happened again while choosing of prefects, school captain, the selector chose only her class students in majority because of corruption, naukarshahi, when I stood again to give my life a restart in class 12,unfortunately i was on bed for half a year, rest of the year teachers did not supported me except one, to get back on track for board(cbse) but i studied late night, all the tym, as i said earlier , i never gave up, i scored decently in CBSe with 70 percent of knowledge, and but things didnt work me, then being in general category I could not make to good colleges but saddest thing was that my friend didnt help me(I helped them a lot literally, that’s y m mentioning complaint stuff) and went to college n took admission there, then I said to my self i must keep moving on,people are selfish, and i took a drop, I did nothing but study and when the time came , i took my entrance exam, my mind became totally blank, my hard work didnt paid.
    fortunately I got admission in lowest ranked clj through another entrance, but this clj dosnt offer any co curricular activity n being in evening shift i also never got time, but this is not all, there is much, buit they are actually complaints rather than betrayals, aur har kisi ki life mein sab kuch achha ni hota.
    in return of good thing i got bad thing, but i never stopped, continued to fight. but when i found i could not clear color vision test, life became just a single sentence..kitna bhi ladlu, natija toh pahle hi mere khilaf hai.
    u tell me, do i have it in me for being an army officer.
    (because after reading ur blog I did a mock interview with me, all of the stuff happened in my life is negative, because they won all the time, but i fought everytime , never gave up without fighting)
    and one thing i should mention to u,
    when I took aptitude test for air force on their website just to check whether i have a potential of being a pilot, the result literally was like this,”you are the one we are looking for, with very much good score” due to lack of knowledge i save the link instead of screen,
    then I decided to be pilot, I was never eligible for tests because of age criterion. but fortunately i still become an army officer in SSC through CDS n m happy with that.
