The SSB Interview: Unveiling the Path to Excellence

The SSB (Service Selection Board) Interview is a crucial stage in the selection process for candidates aspiring to join the esteemed ranks of the Indian Armed Forces. Designed to assess a candidate’s mental and physical capabilities, leadership potential, and overall personality, the SSB Interview is a comprehensive evaluation that spans over five days.

The interview is conducted in two stages: Stage I and Stage II. Stage I includes a screening test that examines a candidate’s intelligence and aptitude. Successful candidates move on to Stage II, which encompasses a battery of tests, group discussions, and personal interviews. The Interviewing Officers (IOs) and Group Testing Officers (GTOs) evaluate each candidate’s response under various scenarios, testing their decision-making skills, communication abilities, and teamwork.
