There are many candidates who keep asking that they do not remember their previous SSB attempts or particular details related to their previous SSB attempts may it be the batch number or chest number. Also, many candidates are asking if it is mandatory to mention their previous SSB interview attempts as they are not sure if the board keeps the record of previous SSB interview attempts.
