After reaching SSB centre and finishing up with all the Documentation, I had undergone OIR Test and done excellent this time. From my side accuracy was 95 out of 100. Then We got PPDT image of Group of Guys and Girls (College Students) moving with a backpack and they were in Casual Attire, nothing special instrument was there with them. Their age was around 22 to 25 and all were in Positive Mood. I made Ram a main Hero of the Story and story was like-Ram was Graduation student and active participant of NSS team. After flood situations, District authorities Set up one rehabilitation centre in the core part of the city. And NSS Students got the task to help and support at Rehabilitation centers.Ram along with his college NSS team and other friends went there to help out. Another college NSS Teams were also present there. Ram gathered all the teams and their seniors and took the responsibility of distribution of food packets, medication and other essentials like a blanket, clothing etc. They made small teams by mixing all college’s students. And gave responsibility to each group. Group distributed things with checklist and demanded further requirements also. At the end of the day, Ram with few seniors went through all the groups to check further requirements and done the survey of distribution to make a report. They submitted a report and got line up for the next day and reverted to their House. Story Finished.
During Narration, I wasn’t stupendous but fluency was their 80%. I was loud, modulation was there and eye contact was thorough. For discussion, our group was divided into a subgroup of 10. During the discussion, I was progressive and taking everyone’s maximum accepted by the group and sharing my also to contribute actively.
After Screening in, for Psych Tests, I went through my own notes and just memorised myself. That is what I am. I am a good person.simple by heart, helping one, cooperative, I can lead I have command qualities. I went through all activities done by me to help others, responsibilities shouldered by me throughout in all situations of my life. For TAT my stories were simple. Whatever first thought came to my mind I wrote it down. It was honestly written response by me. Actually my subconscious mind was responding as I was not trying to camouflage anything. I wasn’t pretending this time.
AFTER SEEING THE STIMULUS WHATEVER RESPONSE CAME TO MY MIND I EXPRESSED IT THROUGH MY WRITINGS IN THE FORM OF STORIES. For WAT Again simple way is whatever I felt after seeing the word I wrote it down.No calculations were made. Eg. COOPERATION creates healthy bondings. 57 WATs attempted.
For SRT this time I focused on each and every SRT as per the seriousness it requires… The deeper is the seriousness the more logical sequence was there in response. 45 SRTs attempted.
On the same day, I have got a call for my PI. Now it was scheduled in 11 SSB to Additional IO’s Office. The one who is Re employed or senior-most IO.

My interview was running max for half an hr. It was a shorter time-wise but Multiple questions he asked and areas he entered.
In GTO 1, for PGT in the first task, I was leading in the second one I was at last with load and third one I was in Middle order. There was no strategy, actually, I performed on the basis of Solution I was getting. But throughout I was giving Solution helping others. 3 out of the 4 tasks we finished.
For GD I was Sharing my views and listening to all. I was there as Suryabhan the way actually I use to be in normally while discussion, in the same way, I was there in GD. My friend Shourya and Shubham Nisal telling me after GD that Once I was waving my hand nearby Shaurya’s Face.
For MPE I again prioritised problems with respect to seriousness. Life is foremost imp. Then Casualty, Then finding something or an object. But one should remember the main plan or aim of our team that we have to reach somewhere within the time for an imp event.
For HGT again we did our best. For Lecturett, I have got the topic Google. I chose Google from four on my card. And I rocked it. Utilised full time. Eye contact with all. And confidence…
GTO 2In Individual Obstacle did 14 obstacles.
For Command Task again GTOwas interacting with me for around 15 mins. He asked me multiple questions and stressed out my English communication and how did I improve my English as I was from Marathi medium till 10th. Also asked me multiple questions regarding my NCC career. In command task, Milan and Mahesh were there as my subordinates. And the bomb was there.GTO pressurised me a lot.
I did it. With all three solutions as GTO was closing every wat after I was finding Solution.
Snake race we rocked. And FGT also.
Conference day-I was waiting outside for approx 15 mins and was there inside for 15 mins again.
Respected officers asked me about Ranking my Performance where I gave first ranking to Psych and GTO and second to my Personal Interview. Officer asked me a reason.
