IMPORTANCE OF SSB Interview Group Discussion TEST :

Verbal and intellectual communication is the key factor in selection. An expression is an important requirement, whether administered, visually, orally, written or practical.

So, through group discussion, candidates get a chance to show their communication skills.

In the armed forces, effective communication skill is very important as you have to live in the company of equals, superiors or subordinates, you do not live in isolation.

You have to show teamwork, sense of responsibility, cooperation every time so, it is very important to test the individual behavior on these scales.

WAY OF CONDUCTING SSB Interview Group Discussion :

The Group Discussion is conducted in two rounds. The candidates are made to sit in a circle according to their chest numbers.

Generally, the GTO asks the candidates to introduce themselves before the GD begins, this happens especially in AFSB’s, he asks you to cover your name, family occupation, your hobbies/interests, your marks up to graduation, so be prepared for such an introduction.

Highlights of the SSB Interview Group Discussion are

In the first round, the GTO gives two topics to the group.
Group has to choose one topic of their choice and report to the GTO.

Then GTO reads out loudly so that everyone in the group becomes aware and clear about the topic of discussion.

Then 20 minutes is given to preparation.
Thus, in the first round, the topic of the current event covered by the newspaper is given.

In the second round, the GTO gives the topic of social importance, again 20 minutes is given for preparation.

When the first discussion ends, the group has to carry out a discussion of about the same duration. There is no choice in the second round, but select the topic given by GTO.

Guidelines to Attempts SSB Interview Group Discussion :

Prepare for the topics from newspapers; have the habit of reading newspapers.

Be aware of the current events and equally about social topics.
Initiate the discussion, if you could not start first, at least join the discussion as early as possible.

Be humble when you are asserting your point and feel it is valid and also do not get discouraged by the opposite view that gets for your point…

Be gracious to accept if your point is proved not valid, but ready with a better point.

Avoid generalizing the views and keep logical and real reasons for your argument…

Never in any chance join hands with one candidate and start backing up each other, a real leader considers everybody equal hence give everybody a fair chance.

Give chance to others also who are not able to talk much.
Maintain good posture while sitting and also have good body language.
Communication skills like pausing, eye contact, etc must be well maintained.

Do not be argumentative or exited and get up from the chair. The GTO explicitly mentions that you do not have to conclude the discussion, hence do not overrule his wish by trying to conclude the discussion…

Just be calm and think like you are discussing something with your friends.
Do not look at the GTO, speak confidently and maintain an audible and nice voice level, not too loud.

SSB Personal Interview Questions : 1. Tell me about yourself

How to Approach Generally, this is the first and most frequent question asked by the interviewer as a Personal Interview Questions. You should not start to tell all matter of things about yourself.

Give them your ‘synopsis’ about you. You have to tell him what’s your USP (Unique Selling Proposition).

Tell him your biggest strength and major benefit that armed forces will derive form this strength

• “Sir, lam a project Engineer in Tata Motors. I am part of the project team that developed ‘Nano model’ within record time and minimum price”

SSB Personal Interview Questions : 2. What is your greatest weakness?

How to Approach There are many ways, you can answer this question. The smart Way is to mention skills that are not very important for the job or you can mention the traits you have improved on or simply mention how you turn a negative into a positive.

For doing that you have to analyse the key qualities first which are required for the position and then come up with an honest shortcoming which is not essential for the position.

Another way is to discuss traits or qualities you have developed or improved upon during your previous job, so in that way you are showing the interviewer that you can make improvement when necessary.

SSB Personal Interview Questions : 4. Tell me about your previous job

How to Approach When you’re asked about your previous job, don’t be too negative because you should not make the interviewer think that you’ll speak negative about the previous job or the company when you’re ready to move on, in case you get this job.

Instead, it makes sense to talk about yourself and what you’re looking for in a new role.

• I enjoyed the people working in the organisation.

It is a friendly and fun atmosphere and I actually enjoy going into work each morning . I feel leading them is great as well They know all of their employees on a first name basis and try to make those personal connections.

How to Approach This is one of the questions that is frequently asked in an interview. Regardless of the fact why you left, don’t speak bad about your previous job or organisation.

Instead, be direct and focussed on your interview and answer on the future, especially if you are leaving under the best of circumstances.

Prepare answer to this type of interview question, well in advance. Practice your responses so that you sound positive and clear, about circumstances and your goals for the future.

The most important reason for leaving is that I felt I was not challenged enough at the job. For a new employee in the working world, the organisation offers a great opportunity for a good entry level position.

However, after working there for so many years, I felt that I was not able to reach my full potential because of the lack of challenge and there was no space for advancement in the organisation.

I did enjoy working there and developed skills, still I feel my skill set can be better utilised in Armed forces where my capabilities are recognised and there is an opportunity for growth.

SSB Personal Interview Questions : 6. Describe a difficult work situation and how did you overcome it?

How to Approach The interviewer asks this question because he wants to know that how you behaved in the past and what will you do in the future.

So, always give your answer with concrete example of a difficult situation that you actually faced. Keep your answers positive and be specific.

  • In my previous job, when the product development stalled, I coordinated the team and reorganised the resources and managed to give the schedule hack on track.

We were able to successfully troubleshoot the issues and solve the problem within a stipulated time.

The difference is that, in the command task, each candidate is given the opportunity to be a leader of a group and he is required to command his group in carrying out a given task.

Here, only one task has to be completed. Here, the candidate is the leader and he should choose 2 or 3 candidates from his group as his subordinates. The purpose of command task is to evaluate the commanding ability of the candidate.

In this task, the GTO explains the problem only to the commander and not to the other member of the group.

Final Group Task (FGT) :

This is the final task in the group task categories. It is the last chance for the candidates to show up their qualities. FGT is 2nd stage of SSB Interview 4th Day Procedure.

In fact, final group task can be a deciding factor in the case of certain marginal candidates who have not been able to put in their very best so far.

This test is same as the Progressive Group Task (PGT) and Half Group Task (HGT) but the difference is that in the previous two, you had to cross many obstacles but in this final test, you will have to cross only one.

For this task, you will again be brought back in the group of 8 to 10 candidates. There is again an obstacle which is an area bounded by the parallel lines called the start line and finish line.

The ground between the two lines is out of binding for both man and material. In this, out of the bound area, some structures are present and you have to use that to go from the start line to the finish line with all the men and supporting material.

Individual Obstacles (IO) :

As the name suggests, in this task every obstacle is tackled by the candidates individually. It is 3rd stage of SSB Interview 4th Day Procedure.
This is a set of individual tasks which checks your minimum physical capabilities.

These tasks are very basic and do not need any specific physical training.
There is a total of 10 obstacles which you have to complete in 3 minutes. Mark to every obstacle is different.

You are at liberty to attempt obstacles in your own order. These obstacles carry a total of 55 marks.

Obstacles are in ascending or progressive order, as much as one goes further, the obstacles become more difficult.

After completing all the obstacles within the time limit, you can re-attempt the obstacles to gain bonus marks.
But, this is valid only when you have completed all the obstacles once.

OBJECTIVES OF INDIVIDUAL OBSTACLES

Through this task, GTO assess the following qualities in the candidates
Physical and mental toughness of the candidates

  • Boldness
  • Courage

Half Group Task In SSB :

Half Group Task In SSB is very much similar to the progressive group task. In this ask, the group is divided into two equal halves.

So, each group has 4 to 10 candidates. Since it is a smaller group and the task allotted is the same, each candidate is observed in great detail.

The purpose behind conducting Half Group Task in SSB is to give a chance to those candidates who feel that they were not able to give their best in PGT.

So, it gives the candidates better opportunities to demonstrate their caliber. GTO too gets an opportunity to make a closer and more detailed assessment of the performance of each candidate.

It is essentially a group task and the members must work for the group in the core spirit of cooperation and coordination.

OBJECTIVES OF Half Group Task In SSB :

The main objectives of the Half Group Task in SSB is to judge candidates

  • His/Her ability to grasp the rules and conditions
  • Team spirit and cooperation
  • Organising ability
  • Observation power
  • Social adaptability

The following qualities of the candidates are checked during Half Group Task In SSB :

• Practical intellect
• Innovative skill
• Analytical skill
• Responsibility
• Determination and courage

Rules and Procedures Of Progressive Group Task In SSB :

Following are the rules that the candidates have to follow :

GTO will explain the procedure and requirement of the test for the candidates.

GTO will tell them that supporting material like plank, rope, balli, will assist the candidates in finding the solution of the problem.

In the Half Group Task in SSB, only one obstacle is to be tackled for which generally 10 to 15 minutes are allotted.

Candidates have to carry a load like a sandbag or an empty drum from the start line to finish line with the help of supporting material like plank, rope and balli.

While one group is doing the task, other groups are not allowed to watch.
Various structures available in the out of bounds area are bench shaped structures, goal post, raised platforms, cross-shaped structures and T-shaped structures.

All the other rules of the progressive group task except the group rule is also applied here.

Colour Rule :

Red colour is out of bound. Structures that are painted white can be used by the individuals as supporting materials.

There may be a central colour also apart from red and white. Structures painted with the central colour can be utilised only by the candidates and not to be utilised to keep load or helping material.

If a candidate touches any out of the bound area, he will be disqualified and requires to restart from the point where the rule was broken.

Rigidity Rule :

This rule pertains to the rigid helping materials like planks, baffles. No two rigid supporting materials can be tied together for making an extension. e.g. if you have a plank and a balli, you are not supposed to tie them together to increase the length.

However, you can keep one on the top of the other and use it.

Distance Rule :

In the obstacles, it will be seen, that neither you are touching the ground nor the helping material should touch the ground.

You have to utilize the permanent structures on the ground and the helping materials to cross the obstacle.

The candidates are allowed to jump distances up to a maximum of 4 ft in length or height but distances exceeding 4 ft have to be crossed only with the help of supporting material.

Rule of Infinity :

The start line and the finish line should extend to infinity on either side.

PRINCIPLES FOR TACKLING OBSTACLE :

  1. The given obstacle has at least 2-3 solutions. So, always look for the best possible solution.
  2. To find the best solutions, look at the structure as well as the supporting material then only you will have an idea which route to take.
  3. The planks can be used as a bridge or as a lever with the rope tied at one end and supported on a drum.
  4. If the distance is less than 4 ft then take a jump.
  5. Use plank and balli as cantilever beam whenever these are required.
  6. Tie the plank on the bench shaped structure with the help of rope.
  7. If required, the rope can be used to serve as a ladder too.
  8. Make a swing with the rope using the goal post.

Important Points to be Kept in Mind :

Half Group Task In SSB plays a vital role for candidates. So, Try to take the Initiative by applying workable ideas…

Once you have found out the solution, take the lead and explain it to the whole group…

If your plan is acceptable to the group then ensure the completion of the task smoothly.

• You should be an active participant throughout the outdoor task.

• Help your group members to carry the helping material as it is reasonably heavy.

• Never try to gain GTO attention by looking at him.

• Always boost up the morale of your group members and keep on encouraging them.

• Never lose temper or shout at others but be patient and cheerful.

• Encourage the weaker members of the group and do not neglect them.

• If you are running short of time then do not get aggressive as it will ruin the situation.

• Your body language should reflect enthusiasm, zeal, energy, interest, and smartness.

• Your voice should be loud and clear.
