This post is regarding SSB Screening Test, of course screening seems very difficult for those who got screened out lot many times.

Candidates participating in PPDT Group Discussion

DAY 1 : SSB Screening Test

  • On Day 1, stage one of testing is administered. This includes a verbal and non-verbal intelligence test (About 50 questions each).
  • Verbal and non verbal is not difficult to crack because its just to test your OIR [ Officer’s Intelligence Rate ], try to attempt all the questions because time is very limited if they say 15 mins for test take it as 10 mins and attempt most of the questions because no “negative” marking.
  • Afterwards a Picture Perception and Description Test (PPDT) is conducted. In this test, a picture, either hazy or clear is shown to the candidates for 30 seconds. Each candidate observes it and then, in the next one minute, must record the number of characters seen in the picture.
  • Then within a given time, each candidate must write nearly seventy words, make a story from the picture (not just describe the picture).
  • The candidate must record the mood, approximate age and gender of the first character they saw, known as the “main character”.
  • In stage two of the PPDT, the candidates are given their stories which they may revise.
  • Each candidate in the group must narrate his or her story within one minute.
  • The group is then asked to create a common story involving each of them or their perceived picture stories.

Most important questions students ask are What is PPDT? How to write story in PPDT? How to explain PPDT picture? PPDT also known as Picture Perception and Discussion Test is one of the most important of two tests conducted in stage one testing of SSB interview.

Note: Remember the quality of the picture shown in PPDT is very poor and hazy, you won’t be able to identify minor objects.
