Document required for SSB interview

It is really important to carry the following documents.
if you are a fresher you might not know but if you fail to get the required documents along with you on the day of reporting to the SSB center you would be directly rejected and most probably would be given another day to report on….. along with the forgotten documents.
Neither would you get travel allowance for the first visit to the SSB center.
You won’t be assessed even through the first round of the SSB. You would be rejected out even before the first round starts. 
Document verification is the first thing that they do as soon as you report to the SSB center.
16 Mandatory Documents that all the candidates need to carry with themselves to the SSB center:

3. 10th/12th Mark sheet

(Original along with  2 Photocopy)
Carry the original and two photocopies of both the 10th and 12th mark sheets each. You may have to submit your photocopies for procedures, so I would always recommend you carry a few extra photocopies of your documents.

4. 10th/12th Passing Certificate

(Original along with  2 Photocopy)
*If you are from CBSE board then your passing certificate is the same as the 10th mark sheet. As the Passing certificate and the mark sheet are both combined into the mark sheet of class 10th CBSE.
But do not confuse the same for class 12th CBSE. as most of the candidates from CBSE board tends to think the 12th mark sheet as the passing certificate itself.
**Disclaimer for CBSE students: The Passing certificate of class 12th and the result of class 12th are not the same documents as was in the case of class 10th, both the passing certificate and the mark sheet are two different individual documents.
