Vivek Dholia – 12 SSB Bangalore

My name is Vivek Dholia & I got recommended in my second attempt for 10+2 Navy B.Tech entry from 12 SSB bangalore It was always my dream to serve my motherland. Soon to live my dreams i left home to join Rashtriya Military School Belgaum. My 1st appearance was in 33 SSB Bhopal and the major mistake i made was lack of confidence during the interview. I wasn't able to give correct answers to IO, also couldn't interpret them properly. But this time i gave many mock interviews beforehand to gain the confidence and overcome the drawbacks.

I want to share that my success mantra was " good preparation , self confidence and a positive approach" to every task that i performed. These all were major traits i carried to selection centre and got recommended. In psychology test i did gave my first thought and the concept of quantity matters in psych test is misconception.

My answers were short and were mine. Personal interview was the best part although it ran only for 10-12 minutes. IO told me that you are worth forces material and said i will get recommended and just need to do good in my GTO. This boosted my confidence and i worked as part of group. I feel one must never carry an individualistic approach in GTO.

Being a repeater i analysed my mistakes, worked on them. So learning form mistakes is must. Be confident and be genuine Jai Hind
