Written Exam

According to the exam format, the written exam is divided into two sections: GAT and Mathematics. The test has a total score of 900.

Final Exam

Following the completion of the SSB Interview, the final result is announced. Aspirants for admittance to the Army, Navy, and Naval Academy, as well as the Air Force, are chosen based on their performance. In both tests, applicants must achieve separate minimum qualifying marks.
