PIQ FORM IN SSB or Personal Information Questionnaire is a really crucial part of whole SSB interview procedure. It is a two-page form in which candidates are supposed to fill their personal details. Candidates who get screened in are asked to fill 2 PIQ forms. Out of these two forms one PIQ goes to your Psychologist and one PIQ goes to your IO. Before your assessment both of them pursue your PIQ and then do your assessment accordingly. 80-90% of your personal interview in SSB will be based on your PIQ only.
Hence, A good PIQ form is your recommendation letter, so it has to be filled really carefully and honestly.
First page of PIQ form asks about your background details and second page of it asks about how you utilized those factors in your life till date.
There are many factors that candidate has to keep in mind while filling his/her PIQ FORM IN SSB.
Few of them are given below:-

Table of Contents
As they say, that first impression is the last impression, so think twice before writing anything in your PIQ form. Your PIQ will be read by high-rank officials, and it is your representation in your absence. Do not do cutting and overwriting as it will show your lack of organizing ability, lack of responsibility, unawareness, and low attentiveness.
2. BE HONEST AND DON’T BLUFF
You’ll be assessed by highly experienced officers, so Bluffers are easily caught red-handed. Be honest and Do not give false information to avoid unnecessary trouble. Have confidence and just Be yourself in the SSB.

4. THEY’LL KNOW ONLY WHAT YOU WILL TELL THEM
Your ASSESSORS will know only what you’ll express or tell them. Always remember to represent your best self at every stage of SSB interview, and it starts with your PIQ form. Remember to mention your remarkable achievements and participation.

8. BASIC PHYSICAL AWARENESS
Be aware about yourself not only mentally but also physically. As there is a column of Age (years and months), Height (in centimeters), and weight (in kilograms).
