SSB Test and Interview:
The SSB procedure consists of two stage Selection process 
stage I and stage II. Only those candidates who clear the stage I are permitted
to appear for stage II. The details are:
(a) Stage I comprises of Officer Intelligence Rating (OIR) tests are Picture Perception * Description Test (PP&DT). The candidates will be shortlisted based on combination of performance in OIR Test and PP&DT.
(a) Stage I comprises of Officer Intelligence Rating (OIR) tests are Picture Perception * Description Test (PP&DT). The candidates will be shortlisted based on combination of performance in OIR Test and PP&DT.
(b) Stage II Comprises of Interview, Group Testing Officer
Tasks, Psychology Tests and the Conference. These tests are conducted over 4 days.
The details of these tests are given on the website joinindianarmy.nic.in.
The personality of a candidate is assessed by three
different assessors viz. The Interviewing Officer (IO), Group Testing Officer
(GTO) and the Psychologist. There are no separate weightage for each test. The marks
are allotted by assessors only after taking into consideration the performance
of the candidate holistically in all the test. In addition, marks for
Conference are also allotted based on the initial performance of the Candidate
in the three techniques and decision of the Board. All these have equal
weightage.
The various tests of IO, GTO and Psych are
designed to bring out the presence/absence of Officer Like Qualities and their
trainability in a candidate. Accordingly candidates are Recommended or Not Recommended
at the SSB.
