The SSB procedure consists of a two-stage Selection process – stage I and stage II. Only those candidates who clear 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 Description Test (PP&DT). The candidates will be shortlisted based on a combination of performance in the 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 personality of a candidate is assessed by three different assessors viz. The Interviewing Officer (IO), Group Testing Officer (GTO), and the Psychologist. There is no separate weightage for each test. The marks are allotted by assessors only after taking into consideration the performance of the candidate holistically in all the tests. In addition, marks for Conference are also allotted based on the initial performance of the Candidate in the three techniques and decisions of the Board. All these have equal weightage.

The various tests of IO, GTO, and Psych are designed to bring out the presence/ absence of Officer Like Qualities and their trainability in a candidate. Accordingly, candidates are Recommended or Not Recommended at the SSB.

For the Air Force in addition to the above will have to qualify Computerised Pilot Selection System. Candidates with Air Force as one of the choices would also undergo CPSS if they qualify SSB and are willing. Every candidate for the Flying Branch of the Air Force is given a Computerised Pilot Selection System (CPSS) (Pilot Aptitude Test) only once. The Grade secured by him at the first test will therefore hold good for every subsequent interview at the Air Force. In case a candidate has failed in CPSS/not tested for CPSS for being HWG, the candidate would be considered for the Ground Duty branch of IAF, Navy, Army and NAVAC as per his choices.

Those candidates who qualify stage-II will be required to submit the Original Certificates along with one photocopy each of : (i) Original Matriculation pass certificate or equivalent in support of date of birth, (ii) Original 10+2 pass certificate or equivalent in support of educational qualification.
