SSB Interview Attempts
Many candidates often wonder about the SSB interview attempts they can make. There is no limit to the number of times a candidate can appear for SSB interview. However, candidates misinforming/concealing the number of attempts already appeared, are liable to lose their candidature at any stage of selection process once the same is noticed by authorities.
Failure to clear Stage 1 of SSB is also counted as one attempt. In fact there are many commissioned officers who were recommended in 13th, 19th and even 20th attempt. The only drawback is that once you are conferenced out you will be known as a “Repeater” and will be evaluated with other repeaters.
A candidate appearing the SSB interview for the first time is called a fresher. A fresher is evaluated with the candidates who have never made it to the second stage. Candidates must utilize this attempt effectively as they have greater chances of getting recommended as a fresher.
Lastly, every attempt gives you the opportunity to showcase the developments made in your personality.
