ssb interview

During the five day selection process at the SSB, certain common mistakes that are committed by candidates due to their ignorance and not being fully aware of how to appropriately project themselves. Assessment of candidates at the selection centre is based on demonstrated behavioural projections and has a lot to do with your general grooming and continuous interplay of the environment with the traits that you were born with. Hence it is very important for a candidate to adhere the same.

Let us see few general mistakes committed by a candidate:

  1. Reports late for SSB and are not fully equipped as per the list of items (clothing and other materials), given in the Call up letter.
  2. Not carrying all the requisite documents, resulting in avoidable harassment.
  3. Displays social adjustment problems by being critical of other candidates, the process of conduct of activities or too demanding with respect to administrative back up being provided by the Selection Centre.
  4. Demonstrates rude behaviour towards the staff and Class-IV employees of the selection centre.
  5. Not being appropriately turned out, unshaven or improper hair cut/headgear.
  6. Disregards the initial briefing of the assessor and enters out of bound areas, as told by him.
