Which SSB Exam is Easy and Best?

Generally, this is an uncommon question yet every candidate going for SSB has this question in their mind.
This article is for those who need a push up in a form of motivation or you can call it in other words, a shortcut to success.
and if you read my earlier post you already, you know that I talk facts. and I don’t just give random statements and I can show you with numbers and prove it.
To be honest this question has got variable answers to it.
And another point if you are trying to appear for SSB then this question should not be an approach to the SSB.

But still, I am here to answer your question.
And the answer to this question is generally entries from UPSC is easier SSB as compared to direct SSB.
This is just because there is less competition in the SSB Exam that is conducted SSB Boards after the UPSC exam.
As the filtration is done by the UPSC exam itself.
Which means fewer candidates qualify for SSB and therefore less competition for the SSB. So, it is a comparatively easier SSB exam then the direct SSB exams.
Direct SSB is the type of SSB in which you don’t have to appear for a preliminary exam and your selection is done based on a merit list that is generated out of eligibility criteria based on the marks of your education qualification.
List Of Direct SSB:
  • SSC tech Entry
  • JAG Entry
  • NCC special entry
  • TGC Entry
  • 10+2 Tech Entry
Generally, direct SSB is considered to be conducted in the most strict way cause there is no preliminary filtration before this SSB. So generally, a mass tends to appear for SSB.
So the basic filtration that occurs in a direct SSB is this Screened In.
that’s why generally for a direct SSB the mass is screened out in the first screening procedure.
No one likes getting screened out.

The List of SSB entries that are lenient compared to the Direct SSB Entries:
  • NDA
  • CDS
  • INET
In this type of SSB, there is a preliminary exam conducted by the UPSC or the organization itself. Like AFCAT is conducted by The Indian Air Force and INET is conducted by the Indian Navy.
As because there is a preliminary exam conducted before the SSB, the Mass already get struck off out of the list for SSB. So generally, there is less competition in the SSB.
A mere comparison between a direct SSB and an SSB which has been filtered through a preliminary exam.
In a direct SSB like SSC technical entry or NCC entry. Generally, on the reporting day, around 300 candidates report on the SSB center, and on the very first day and after the very first procedure, only 30 candidates get selected through the screen in the procedure and the rest 270 candidates are sent back home from there itself.
though these numbers are estimate numbers. But generally, they stand to be approximately constant to near about these numbers.
and as you can make out from here that the direct SSB is like the SSC technical entry of the NCC special entry has got only 10% screening in chances.
but in case of SSB in which a preliminary exam was conducted for example AFCAT, INET,  CDS, or NDA, on an average only around 42 – 100 candidates appear on the reporting day, and out of that around maybe candidates are selected.
So as you can see this selection chances of the SSB that has got preliminary exams are like 40 to 50% selection rate.
Now you can clearly see, that the SSB that is conducted after preliminary exams is more lenient and has got the most selection rate than the SSB is which are direct SSB.
In case if you are a fresher and you are selected for SSB which has been conducted after a preliminary exam, then give you 110% efforts because you have got the optimum chances of getting the screen in.
And to others, I would suggest not to fall for this. Work hard for whichever SSB you are been selected for. Do not fall for all these tricks and tips. These tricks and tips don’t really work in the SSB center because the Assessors sitting over there are much more experienced than us.
