The Services Selection Board (SSB) interview is a crucial part of the selection process for candidates aspiring to join the Indian Armed Forces as officers. The SSB interview process spans over five days, each designed to assess different qualities and aspects of a candidate’s personality and potential. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the five-day SSB interview process:

**Day 0: Reporting Day**
– **Reception and Documentation**: Candidates report to the designated SSB center and undergo initial documentation and verification.
– **Briefing**: Candidates are briefed about the SSB process, rules, and schedule for the coming days.

 **Day 1: Screening Test**
– **Officer Intelligence Rating (OIR) Test**: This consists of verbal and non-verbal reasoning tests to evaluate the candidate’s intelligence and problem-solving abilities.
– **Picture Perception and Discussion Test (PPDT)**: Candidates are shown a picture for 30 seconds, after which they have to write a story based on it within 4 minutes. Following this, groups of candidates discuss their stories to reach a common narrative.

– **Group Obstacle Race (GOR)**: Also known as the Snake Race, this involves groups competing against each other while overcoming a series of obstacles.

– **Conference**: All assessors (psychologists, GTOs, and interviewing officers) gather to discuss and evaluate each candidate’s performance. Candidates are called in one by one, and the final results are announced.

– **Result Announcement**: Candidates who are recommended by the board are informed and briefed about further medical examinations.
– **Medical Examination**: Recommended candidates undergo a thorough medical examination to ensure they meet the medical standards for the Armed Forces.
– **Final Merit List**: After clearing the medical examination, a final merit list is prepared based on the candidate’s performance in the SSB interview and their medical fitness.
