INTELLIGENCE AND PERSONALITY TEST

The SSB procedure consists of two stage Selection process – stage I and stage II. Only

those candidates who clear the stage I are permitted to appear for stage II. The

details are:-

(a) Stage I comprises of Officer Intelligence Rating (OIR) tests are Picture Perception*

combination of performance in OIR Test and PP&DT.

(b) Stage II Comprises of Interview, Group Testing Officer Tasks, Psychology Tests

and the Conference. These tests are conducted over 4 days. The details of these tests

are given on the website www.joinindianarmy.nic.in.
