Marking Scheme In NDA SSB Interview

Each of the three assessors will score the medical examination, the group project, and the personal interview for a total of 300 marks under the NDA SSB Marking System (PI). Each assessor is required to get a minimum score of 90. There are 900 total points in the SSB. Additionally, it is divided into four sections (psychology, GTO, interview, and conference round), with each section receiving 900/4=225 marks. For any of the assessors to say "Yes" out of these 225 scores, you must obtain at least 90; if you score less than 90, you just get a "No."

Screening, psychological tests, GTO tasks, and a personal interview are all part of the initial four days of the SSB interview process. In this case, you would need to pass with at least 90*3= 270 marks. For Example -

1) One applicant receives 80 points for the interview, 70 for the GTO, and 75 for the psychological test. The final score is 225 points.

2) A different contender receives a total of 250 out of the necessary 270 marks. Thus, the significance of the conference round is now apparent. If your marks are higher than 240, the conference round will determine whether or not you are recommended.

Complete Marking Scheme for  NDA SSB Interview-

A minimum of 90 points must be obtained from each assessor.  NDA SSB has a total of 900 points. It is then divided into four parts (psychology, GTO, interview, and conference round), with each test phase receiving 900/4=225 marks.



Minimum Marks for Recommendation
















NDA SSB Marking Scheme: Points To Be Noted 

  • The Services Selection Board has backup marks of 225, and they began probing you in the conference round because they thought you were lacking in several areas. 
  • If they deem you fit, they will award you points to raise your cumulative score from the previous 240 to 360 or above (marks As Mentioned Above). 
  • As a result, you receive a minimum passing score of 360 (90X4). Furthermore, you finally get recommended.
  • If an assessor is uncertain about the evaluation of an applicant during the psychology test, he might consult another assessor. The GTO or the IO cannot use the option of getting a NDAond opinion because they must evaluate a candidate's OLQs in real-time.
  • A review is conducted during a conference if someone is about to receive a third assessment but is recommended by two assessors. In any case, a person is not at all recommended if a psychologist thinks they are unsuitable.
  • On the day of the conference, all of these facets of your personality are combined to assess whether or not the applicant is qualified to serve as an officer in the armed forces.
  • Therefore, the secret to achieving good grades is to expand your thinking. The selection process used by the NDA SSB is based on approaches that assess applicants in light of the requirements of the armed services. Practice hard and get ready for each SSB phase as a consequence.
