@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.

@Those who cleared the written ACIO exam

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.)

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.
