@Those who couldn’t make it

Many Good exams coming soon- SSC CGL 2014, Punjab and Maharahstra PSC and many more.

Find out the cause of defeat (low preparation of current / theory /aptitude) and rectify your studies accordingly. Failure in one exam doesn’t make you loser. Hard working person will always meet Success sooner or later.

Interviews will commence from January 13 to January 25, 2013. That means less time for celebration and more time for interview preparation.

What to prepare for interview?

From the 2012’s recruitment round, many Players had posted their interview experiences in the comments below the following article:


so just go through them to get a feel of how the interview goes. Note: every page contains 50 comments and interview experience sharing starts from comment page number 5.

Some tips (from those comments)

  1. 60% on your biodata. (Why do you want to join IB? Educational background, terminology, hobbies)
  2. 30% on current issue (mostly national and regional. + some current related to neighboring countries from IB/security/terrorism angle.)
  3. 10% intelligence system of India.
  4. If you are not fluent in English practice it, as sometimes panel member may insist that you answer a particular question in english.
  5. For some people it was for 5 mins and for some it went upto 20 mins.
  6. In the panel, one member will be observing you and taking notes.

(for more, go through the comments in the link I gave above.)

Candidates belonging to OBC category and claiming benefits thereunder must bring their OBC  certificate in the proforma meant for appointment to the posts under Government of India as published in the advertisement (copy enclosed) and not for State Government jobs. If they fail to do so, they will not be allowed to appear in the interview. Certificate in any other proforma will not be accepted in any case.

One copy each of Attestation Forms (A.F.) and Special Security Questionnaire (SSQ) may also be downloaded which are required to be filled in by the candidate for carrying out Character & Antecedents verification wherever required. These forms may please be filled in for all the columns correctly and completely and in case the space provided in any of the column is not sufficient for furnishing the information sought, the candidate can utilize an extra sheet. This is, however, made clear that issuance and filling up of the attestation form (AF) and SSQ at this stage does not mean that the candidate has been or would be necessarily selected to the post of ACIO-II/Exe. The duly filled in AF and SSQ forms are required to be deposited by the candidate on the day of interview.
  7. The candidate is advised to bring this interview letter without which he/she would not be allowed entry. It may be made clear that no request for change of date and place would be entertained.
