SSB is a test of your personality or let’s say how you portray yourself in those 5 days of the examination period. It tests your inner self that is who you really are and how well are your determinations, positivity of your thoughts and the self belief present within you.
You cannot fake it (yourself) as they have got a 5- day long procedure specially designed by the DRDO to select the future of Indian defence. Even if they get a hint of falsehood, they will take no time to reject you.
Thus HONESTY . This is an integral factor for being recommended in SSB.
Coming to the question of nda ssb interview tips:
- Study current affairs regularly and your own thoughts about that very topic, the pros and cons and the positive conclusion to take yourself into a confident zone, as we know Knowledge is supreme . Introspect yourself that who you are, how you can be more good and how will you portray yourself.
- Practice, learn from your past mistakes and practice again, WATs, SRTs, TATs etc. The more you practice, the more you become good and thus your qualification probability becomes stronger.
