SSB Interview Procedure

SSB interview is the gateway for becoming an officer in Indian Army, Navy and Air Force.

The candidates that clear written exams such as CDS, NDA, TA and AFCAT are called for SSB Interview from their respective boards. One can also appear for SSB Interview by getting shortlisted direct entries TES, TGC, UES, SSC Tech, etc.

SSB interviews are conducted by various Services Selection Boards of Indian Army, Navy and by Air force Selection Boards. These SSB boards selects candidates for commissioned officer posts in Indian Armed Forces through SSB interviews.

  1. National Defence Academy & Naval Academy examination (NDA & NA Exam)
  2. Combined Defence Services Examination (CDSE)
  3. Air Force Common Admission Test (AFCAT)

The SSB Interview is directed to check the following procedure of the candidate.

  1. Mansa which means thoughts; Psychological tests are conducted for this
  2. Vacha which means speech; Interview conducted for this
  3. Karma which means deeds or actions; Group testing is done for this.

Most of the aspirants appear in the SSB interview without preparation. Many candidates are asked to appear for the interview and if they have Officers Like Qualities in them, then they will be automatically get selected by the selection boards. But this is completely a wrong notion.

SSB interview is an interview in place for selecting the future officers and leaders of defence forces. One cannot blindly appear for the SSB interview thinking that one will get selected if he has all qualities. It is just as if you are appearing for a written exam without even knowing the pattern and syllabus of the exam. One may still pass the exam but it all depends upon the luck. If one is well prepared for the exam by knowing blue print of question paper and pattern of questions asked in the exam, one will be definitely stay ahead of others.
