SSB Interview Day 3: Group Testing Officers Tests

1. Group Discussion (GD)

The GTO first presents two themes for the first GD, from which the group selects one before exchanging opinions. The GTO provides a topic for the second GD, after which the same process is repeated. The group does not need to reach a decision in this instance.

2. Group Planning Exercise (GPE)

Using a map of the location, the GTO describes a situation where there are a number of issues. The candidates then have 10 minutes to write their solutions using all of their resources, including their group. The group then confers a strategy for resolving the issues, which is then described by one of the participants.

3. Progressive Group Task (PGT)

This challenge consists of four different obstacle courses, each of which gets harder as it goes along. The group is expected to proceed and take on these buildings utilising their available aid, such as a rope, plank, balli, etc. There is also a load that needs to be carried. The group is required to abide by all GTO guidelines, which include:

(a) Rule of Color

  • White refers to both people and things.
  • Blue denotes a guy only.
  • Red is off-limits to everyone.

(b) The ground is off-limits to everyone.

(c) Rigidity Rule: Helping materials may be attached to the structures but not to one another.

(d) Rule Of Infinity: The start and end lines extend to infinity i.e can’t be crossed directly 

(e) Distance Rule: No distance greater than  4 feet can be jumped.

4. Group Obstacle Race (GOR)/ Snake Race

A sprint across four obstacles, including a single ramp jump, eight-shaped bars, a 10-foot wall, a double wall, a spider web, and an enormous slide, is one of the most enjoyable activities in the entire procedure. Red should not be touched by either a snake or my man, according to the guidelines. When navigating obstacles, the snake must be handled by a minimum of three people, and the GTO may apply a time penalty for infractions.

5. Half Group Task (HGT)

Similar To PGT, But With Only Two People In The Group And One Obstacle To Overcome.

SSB Interview Day 4: Personal Interview

1. Lecturette

The lecturette is a test of your self-assurance in front of a group of onlookers. Each officer is responsible for leading his men, inspiring them, and explaining the strategy. For this, you need to speak and sing with assurance. The SSB panel administers a test in GTO known as the lectures to verify all of these.

2. Individual Obstacles (IO)

The candidate must successfully navigate all 10 obstacles, each of which will provide a different score as displayed on them. The candidate may repeat the challenges, but only once he has cleared all 10. The 10 tasks are shown below with their respective scores.

Then he requests that the commander who is up for the job contact two of his team members as subordinates to assist him in getting past the obstruction.

4. Final Group Task (FGT)

As suggested by the name, the entire group is again given one obstacle that is comparable to PGT, which they must clear together.

5. Personal Interview (PI)

Any of the three days, following the conclusion of the examinations for that day, may be used for the personal interview. The interviewing officer asks the student a variety of questions about his family, academics, involvement in sports and extracurricular activities, hobbies and interests, responsibilities, and general knowledge including knowledge of the forces, personal life, etc. based on information provided by the student in his PIQ (Personal Information Questionnaire). 

The average interview lasts for 40 minutes, while some may go for an hour or even just 5 minutes.

SSB Interview Day 5: Conference Day

The Final Day is the Conference Day in the 5-Day SSB Interview. The assessor gives a final address before the conference of aspirants gets underway.
