This test lasts for many days, and candidates are assessed daily. Candidates have to perform their best and show their unique skills to pass the test. They examined in every way. The main thing seen is whether the candidate deserves to be an officer or not. If he fails to the character of an officer, he will fail.

ISSB Preparation Guide

The chief purpose of the ISSB is to select suitable candidates for the Pakistan defense department. It accomplishes this task in many ways. It tests the candidate’s skills in problem-solving, decision-making, and many other mandatory skills for an officer or a leader. ISSB is very tough in this regard.

Therefore, the majority of the students cannot pass this test. ISSB selects candidates for the army, navy, and air force. All the related departments take tests from the candidates, and if they pass those tests, they are sent to the Inter services selection board for further examination.

ISSB tests their skills that are not found in an ordinary soldier. Apart from this, candidates will be asked to do many drills based on the real situation. It is done to check whether they could solve the real problems or not—that is why candidates do ISSB test preparation.

Selection in ISSB is made on the basis of 5 days of psychological screening to test the ability, aptitude, and personality of a candidate. During 5 days at ISSB, your personality is assessed from different psychological and physical angles.

The following 4 ISSB centers conduct the tests:

Kohat
Gujranwala
Quetta
Malir

ISSB Selection Criteria

The armed forces of Pakistan require competent, capable, and devoted officers to defend our homeland, and to lead our soldiers towards victory. ISSB works for the selection of the right person for the right position in the armed forces. The guiding principle of officer selection in the armed forces is to assess the suitability of an individual for the efficient performance of his job. The emphasis is therefore on officer-like qualities including an individual’s professional efficiency such as personality traits like leadership, enthusiasm, determination, initiative, social judgment, and ability to influence others.

The Inter Services Selection Board (ISSB) is for officer commissions in the Defense Forces of Pakistan, the Army, Navy, and Air Force. Selection is based on psychological screening to test ability, aptitude, and personality. 

ISSB selection is made on the basis of five days of psychological screening to test the ability, aptitude and personality of a candidate. The tests are held in any one of the four centers, namely Kohat, Gujranwala, Quetta, and Malir.

Candidates who pass the selection procedure qualify provided that they pass a medical test, to undergo officer training at military academies, primarily the Pakistan Military Academy in Kakul the Pakistan Naval Academy in Manora, and the Pakistan Air Force Academy in Risalpur.

Coaching for the tests is not officially allowed, but nevertheless, many academies do exist for this purpose, often run by retired army and ISSB officers.

The ISSB Indoor Task GTO are group exercises, wherein the candidates perform several tasks either collectively or individually, but always in association with the other candidates in the group. Some of the exercises are indoor while others are outdoor.

ISSB Indoor Task GTO ACTIVITIES:

  • All the activities are simple, Just remember a few things Don’t try to be over smart, Stay serious, Take charge of your team.
  • Participate in all activities make your observer realize that you are a leader and always remember ( You Command Respect not demand respect)
  • GTO –Group testing Officer..(remember he alone can take a stand for your RECOMMENDATION), so give your best short….

1–Group discussions

  • The group discussion or group discussion task has assumed great importance. In the Group Testing Officer Task or G.T.O Task, the candidate creates the first impression on the Group Testing Officer (G.T.O) and other members of his group. The good performance of the candidate in the task of group discussion creates a good impression on the Group Testing Officer and enriches his role in subsequent group tasks. As the first impression is the last impression, hence the candidate must try his best to show his worth in group discussion.
  • During group discussion, all candidates are arranged to sit in a circle. In the beginning, every candidate introduces himself, like which city he belongs to, his educational qualifications, hobbies, etc. Thereafter, the group discussions exercise begins. In this task, usually, two subjects are read out to the candidates and they are required to choose one of them for the sake of discussion. The subject which is agreed upon by the majority of the candidates is accepted by the Group Testing Officer for discussion. You should be initiated and should speak at any cost. You must speak for 2 minutes 3 times, a total of 5-6 minutes…. 20 minutes is the total time for Group discussion.

2—Group Planning Exercise

This exercise begins soon after the Group Discussion, It is an indoor task, where the Group Testing officer reads out the narrative and with the help of the sand model or sketch map explains the situation to the candidates. The map or model contains the scale, legend, etc. If the candidates required any clarification on some points, then it is cleared by the Group Testing Officer. Thereafter, the candidates are to write down their individual solutions in the paper provided for the purpose. The candidate are not allowed to consult each other while writing down their solutions. The candidate has to write down their chest numbers on the tip of the writing paper. The time for this written work is about 10 minutes. Thereafter, the candidate is required to discuss among themselves the situation and problems so as to arrive at a group solution or plan. Every candidate is desired to express his views on the situation.

ISSB Outdoor Task GTO

The ISSB Outdoor Task GTO are group exercises, wherein the candidates perform several tasks either collectively or individually, but always in association with the other candidates in the group. Some of the exercises are indoor while others are outdoor.

ISSB Outdoor Task GTO ACTIVITIES:

Some of the fundamental rules which the Group Testing Officer clears to the candidates before beginning the tasks ;

Out of Bounds Rule: The whole ground area and any other structure are painted red between the start line and the finish line, and their helping materials and loads are out of bounds to the candidates. There is punishment for any candidate or any object that touches the out-of-bounds area. The defaulter has soon goes back to the start line of that obstacle. If any object touches the outbounds areas, then the object should be carried back by the defaulter to the stat-line, and then it should be brought forward again.

The Four Feet Rule: The candidates are not permitted to jump any distance exceeding 4 feet either in length or in height. Such distances, are to be crossed with the assistance of the helping materials (ropes or bellies).

The Group Rule: Every obstacle should be crossed by the whole group with its material and load before the next obstacle is tried by anybody in the group.

The Time Rule: The task should be concluded in 40 minutes. There is no time limit for each of the four obstacles which are included in this task.

ISSB GTO TASKS DESCRIPTION

There are two major categories of ISSB GTO Tasks which are indoor and outdoor. These are then further divided into different tasks which are as follows:

NOTE: The main purpose of ISSB GTO Tasks is to analyze the abilities of teamwork and coordination. Apart from this your ability to take the pressure, team harmony, spirit, decision-making, and leadership skills are also focused. Candidates having all these abilities have a brighter chance of selection.

ISSB GTO Test For Female Candidates

ISSB GTO Test for Female Candidates: At present only female candidates for GD (P) and CAE are required to undergo the GTO tests. Therefore if you are coming for these courses you will undergo GTO’s Tests just like male candidates except that you will negotiate only six obstacles instead of nine while undergoing ‘Individual Obstacle Tests’.

ISSB GTO Test for Female Candidates: Individual Obstacles

Here there will be obstacles placed and a candidate is required to complete them in a given period of time individually. The level of individual obstacles for women is slightly lower than that given for men. Men are given three minutes for 10 obstacles roughly and women are required to complete 6 obstacles in a time of 4 minutes, this is because levels of energy and stamina in men and women are different. You can repeat an obstacle after you complete it all. Each obstacle is associated with points ranging from 1 to 12, the most difficult one with a maximum number of points (12).

Basically, your self-confidence, physical fitness, stamina, courage, determination, and speed of decisions are some major points amongst others to be checked. Hence you have to do it will full zeal and stamina. Generally, the obstacles are placed one after the another in such a way that you can start with an obstacle you like and keep on attempting others and finally come back to the first one where you started.

Here is a list of some of the obstacles popularly given by ISSBs, you can get any six of them or similar kinds to do

  • Going over a balance beam called a single ramp.
  • Long jump across a ditch of about 4-6 feet (generally covered with a barbed wire).
  • Monkey crawling.
  • Climbing a wall.
  • Passing through a tire.
  • Rope climbing.
  • Tarzan Swing or Tarzan jump
  • Balance walking over a zigzag beam.
  • Walking over parallel ropes (Burma Bridge).
  • Screen Jump (come running climb on the plank jump over the screen or red cloth without touching the screen).
  • Commando walk.
  • Tiger’s leap.

Tips For Tackling Individual Obstacles

You can tackle these obstacles easily if you are physically fit. Since balancing requires concentration hence you must attempt it in the beginning (this is my personal opinion however you can attempt it in a way you like). Since Individual Obstacles are scoring things hence you must try to put in your best efforts because these marks count in the final merit list. Don’t forget to test your shoes (sports shoes) which you have to wear for this task because you must be accustomed and habitual to the shoes in which you are going to run. The same applies to the dress you have to wear for this task.

Read Before Go ISSB

Read Before Go ISSB: The schedule at ISSB goes throughout the year. Batches after batches reporting and every aspirant try their level best to get selected for this reputed job. Success ratio maximizes for those candidates having proper ISSB Guideline. I’ve seen many candidates who remain unfamiliar with the tests that are going to be held there. Therefore, despite having the potential ISSB selectors looking for, they couldn’t make it. So, if you want to avoid embarrassment and perform better, then this post is for you.

Read Before Go ISSB: Physical Fitness

ISSB selectors got impressed by alert, physically and mentally sound candidates, capable of bearing the arduous and most laborious training at PMA. Nobody wants to ruin their chances of recommendation due to low physical health.  For this reason, it is advised to prepare you for the upcoming GTO outdoor tasks. Incorporate exercise such as running, and playing sports, into your daily routine, to boost your stamina.

GK and Current Affairs:

Good Leaders must be aware of the current happening and have general awareness. During military life, he has to deal with any situation. But this doesn’t mean they want you to be a Philosopher at all. Reading English newspapers can aid you to stay updated with the major current affairs across the globe. Furthermore, there are many books out there on the market. You can read those books to memorize the basic knowledge about geography, history, Islam and everyday science.

Polish Speaking Skills:

If you want not to ruin your first impression and performance in Interviews, then be assured you have good communication skills. One, who is lacking in it, would unluckily lose the chances of his recommendation. Similar to the above point, it doesn’t mean if your good debater or speaker, then your recommendation is certain. Although, it builds positive impressions of you not your whole performance utterly depends on it.

Participating in group discussions and class presentations would be advantageous in this respect. Don’t worry if currently, you do not have command on this. Everything can be achieved, and this is just human quality.

Have Proper Knowledge about Each Test

Going to ISSB without proper details about tests wouldn’t be a wise thing. Read other articles on our forum to get the idea. Due to less time given, you may not attempt many questions. So it is usually suggested to prepare for them. But not try to memorize your sentences as it can result in failure. Follow this ISSB Guideline to make yourself an influential candidate.

Be Positive:

Firstly, it should be clear; that positivity doesn’t always refer to overlooking the other side. One thing commonly suggested by many recommended candidates, that to remain Natural. But what does it mean?

It means to show them who you really are. Don’t copy the answers and style of others. With the experience of years, you will get caught when you try to fool them. Therefore, stay positive and have positive thoughts in your mind about results. But don’t call the white color irrespective of its black appearance.

Let’s define positivity. Having an optimistic approach to the future and your performance is something that is called positivity. I am not saying you overlook the positive aspects and always go for reality. Being realistic is a good thing but try to find out the brighter side within the vicinity of reality.

Why do you want to join the forces?

One of the commonly asked questions in ISSB. Prepare a solid reply to this question before ISSB. Your reply should be valid and sound appropriate. Don’t copy others, make an answer that depicts your personality.

PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTS: Your Handwriting is the mirror to judge your quality. Write neatly and legibly. Since these tests are designed to calculate your IQ, try and complete, as many questions as possible; but at the same time, do not do so without thinking sufficiently. Even75% of the questions answered correctly will see you through. Since every test is co-related, be positive in what you write. Your pen picture should tally with your thoughts pen down. Since you are being compared with all other candidates your best performance will take you to your ultimate goal.

WAT Word Association Test: Write the first positive thought that comes to your mind. The time given is 15 seconds to write. The sentence need not be grammatically correct or the word used just to write a sentence. Remember this is not a Make a sentence type exam. This is designed to test your inner thoughts. So be careful in whatever you write.

Thematic Appreciation tests: The Thematic Story writing. You will get about 3 minutes for each story. Do not write stereotype stories. Try different themes for different stories. Remember you are the Hero; the aim should be to bring out the leadership qualities of the hero through these stories. The Qualities that you are to project through your stories are:-
