ABOUT SSB INTERVIEW
OUR TEAM FOR SSB INTERVIEW
Our training is based on the fundamental belief that every student has the potential to succeed. We focus on students as individuals, providing them with the support they need to reach their full potential.
Years of experience in this field of grooming students for the Defence Forces have taught us that the best results come from adjusting our training to each individual’s unique background, skills, strengths, weaknesses, etc, and setting their level for appearing in their choice of examination. Our trainers empower students through personalised training and support, helping them develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed.
Throughout our Competency-Based training, we continuously assess and evaluate students’ progress—not only through scheduled testing but during their entire training. This helps us understand where our students excel and where they need additional guidance.
Our team includes Experienced assessors who have been part of various Selection Boards with years of experience in the field of assessing candidates. Our team also includes SSB Recommended candidates who share their experience and strategy that help new students in relating with their own strategies and improve their performance.
We set clear goals and inspire our students to work hard in every situation while recognizing that mistakes are an integral part of the learning process. Our students and staff work together to transform mistakes into development.
We train our students in an Inclusive and Realistic Environment characterised by consideration and mutual respect. In every aspect of training, we practice well for all the tests.

The candidate is asked some basic questions regarding his 5 days experience and his/her life. After the board conference, final results are announced.
NOTE: The candidates who get selected/recommended are required to stay at the respective SSB Centre for further documentation and medical procedure whereas the candidates who don’t make it are routed back home.
