What is SSB Interview: Detailed Explanation
The SSB Interview can last from anything to about 20 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes. The Interviewing Officer starts talking in a very relaxed manner with you at the start and then starts asking questions based on your PIQ. The questions are generally asked in a rapid fire sequence and about 8-10 questions will be asked at one go. The candidate has to answer the questions in the same sequence as asked. In between the Interviewing Officer may ask some other questions as well to get some things clarified. The IO may ask 5 – 6 rapid fire sequences during the interview.
