And then eventually I joined Navy in 2015 with the dream of becoming an officer through support entry that’s named Commission Worthy scheme (only for sailors of the Indian navy). And I participated and won several competitions. I groomed amyself by participating in debates and by doing mic controller, class leader etc.. In my professional training I was the program topper of electric branch(EMR) . I always keep asking CW from everybody, many people said its very difficult as we have to go through many hurdles. And getting commissioned from regular ranks is a really difficult task. In this entry we have to clear few phases to get the call up letter of SSB
After clearing all these phases call up letter of SSB is recieved. So it was my 5th attempt, I was quite worried because the choice rate is very less, sometimes only 1 sailor get advocated from the whole indian navy. And another thing is there’s only a single batch for all the sailors who’ve cleared all these phases, I don’t recall but 148-150 candidates reported there, I got screened in and was curious to experience the difference of ssb through support entry. But there was really less difference in the procedure… And that only difference is the subjects u get in GD n Lecturette, few of them are related to support .And in interview, there are no. Of questions related to your services.
5th attempt — 33 SSB BHOPAL: Competition out again
It was very hard time for me but I didn’t give up and applied and that was my last attempt of service entry. I prepared myself well for the interview because I believed my answers weren’t up to the mark and that I was not able to express properly. I wrote interview qstn and replies .And also prepared qstns associated with navy like about our ships, submarines etc.. And I cleared all the phases again and went for ssb.
6th attempt — 33 SSB BHOPAL: This time luck was with me and I was much focussed , was not involved much in sports, discussions etc. during the first 3 days until the time that I have not given my interview. And I can not believe I have given all the answers, there was not a single qstn in my mind which I must prepare for the confrence. I did good In GDs, lecturette but I am a forever load holding celebration in PGT, but did well in HGT and I got an average type CT and my fellow member was saying “Rana to gayo
Baccho jaisa task mila hai matlab rana urge nahi ho raha. .
But I was having religion on myself because 80 percent candidates do good in GTO but nobody knows what they did in psychology and personal interview.Another strange thing was, I was not able to complete my self description. I did many mistakes but I do not know why I was feeling so confident. Even CHM of 33ssb Bhopal was not happy with me since I went late in GTO ground.And it was the day of confrence, when a lady lieutenant commander came with the results and declared the results, and I don’t why I was thinking ” sabse pehle mera naam bol perform” and YES she declared my chest number, I was asked to go out of the room and stand individually and then CHM came to me and said “yaha se bhi bahar nikaal diya, bola tha itna mat hasa kar”
The moment I said, Sir nikala nahi urge hua hu and I was wondering bhai ek do aur aa jaaye, akele medical dene me mja nhi aayga…. .3 more guys came and we hugged each other and got our new chest numbers with + sign .
