SSB OIR Booklets changed in all centres
Officer intelligence rating test also commonly known as OIR test is a part of DAY 1 screening at SSB
OIR tests has a lot of substance, not only in screening but in overall merit score too. Furthermore the OIR score of selected candidate is sent to the respective academy & Ministry of Defence. The OIR is considered by the Special agencies like R&AW while induction process.
There are very less cases when a candidate scores above 90% in OIR test. In fact it is NOT a myth that " one scoring above 90% is screened in irrespective of how he performs in PPDT, GD ".
The OIR booklet available earlier at the SSB centres were old and were used repeatedly. This is the sole reason you would have noticed the blurred responses marked by the previously assessed candidates.
As per the reports, Newly printed Booklets were made available at all the centres which can be confirmed from the candidate who has been to the SSB recently. The new booklet has few additional variants of questions and is made a little difficult purposely.
OIR e-Books are available online HERE.
Therefore it is advised to practice more and more of OIR TESTS beforehand to get edge over other candidates.
