11 Tricky NDA SSB Interview Questions: Answered
SSB, in all is general to every type of entry. Everyone is assessed on a common set of qualities or the OLQs. Every level of assessment is also the same in each entry type. The reason why NDA SSB stands out from the rest is due to the fact that it is a bit early for the boys. It might be their first interview of their life at that age.
While every assessment is same and the preparation for it is the same too, here are some sample tricky NDA SSB interview questions that you might face in the interview and tips/sample answers to tackle them:
- Why do you want to join army/navy/air force?
- “Indian Armed Forces is the most exciting organization to work with because of its adventurous nature, and of course, the handsome pay perks. I would like to join the armed forces because it provides me job security, family security, respect that can only be earned in the uniform and the pride of wearing that uniform. And also I would get a chance to serve the nation and do my bit for it.”
- Why should I recommend you?
- “From my point of view, I pose most of the Officer Like Qualities that an officer must have. I am responsible, socially adaptable and take initiative whenever given a chance. And that’s the most important of qualities that an officer must have. Hence, you should give me a chance to prove my points and myself by recommending me.”
- Why do you think you are suitable for Indian army?
- “I have been living in the army environment since I was a child. I am not new to the stuff that happens in the army and can work in it without even posing a socializing or acclimatizing problem.” (If you are an Army brat)
- “I find myself adventurous and ready to take risks in life. I can adapt to new situations and scenarios very easily. From my previous roles as a leader, I can also say that I have a good experience in leadership and teamwork. And army is all about it. Hence, I find me suitable for the role of an army officer.” (If you are new to army)
- Do you have Girl Friend/Boy Friend? Have you had sex with him/her?
- Be Frank and confident with the IO and don’t feel too protective or shy. At the same time, don’t be too friendly or frank with him. Know your limits and stick to it.
- Why don’t you have a girlfriend? Are you gay?
- You are on your own on this one.
- If you don’t get selected what will you do in future?
- “I would continue my graduation and after that, I will try through CDSE/AFCAT/Other Entries. Basically I would continue my life.”
- What if you could never make it defence?
- If the interviewer is asking you this question, keep one thing in mind – he is taking an interest in you and wants to recommend you. Your recommendation will now depend on this question. If you have a proper future planning, you are a green light but if say that you don’t have any plans as of now or you haven’t thought about it yet, you are a redo range light.
- What if I run away persuading your sister?
- “I would have better chances of getting recommended” is what I would reply if it were me. Don’t get offended by his remarks. Take it in an easy and jovial mood and reply in that mood itself.
- What if one morning you woke up & found that you were pregnant?
- This question is like a template on the internet blogs titled “Tricky interview questions”. Unsure whether it’s really asked or not, here’s was the girl replied “I will be very excited and take an off, to celebrate with my husband.” As said earlier, take everything positively and in a calm and polite way. This will represent your response to your teammates and your ability to socialize.
- Do you smoke? Drink?
- Again, be frank and confident but don’t be too friendly or free with him. He’s the interviewer after all and not your friend.
- Do you watch Porn? And what do you do after watching porn?
- It was asked to one of my friends during TES SSB and here’s what he replied: “Yes, I do. I hit the gym right after watching porn because my high testosterone levels help me increase the intensity of training and I could work-out better.”
Finally, when questions are asked whose answers you don’t know, say honestly that you don’t know the answer instead of trying to fake. Do self-introspection and then reflect your true personality at SSB. That’s the only success mantra and the tool for success. Sometimes just thinking out of the box is all it takes!
