    Intelligence Test
    The mode of these written intelligence tests for the selection of suitable officers for the Defense Forces of Pakistan at the ISSB is not very difficult. The candidate is required to make use of his acquired knowledge and his own inborn intelligence to solve problems. The questions set in these tests do not require long answers, but they are required to reply in "yes" or "no" or put a tick around the correct answer or to write the serial number of the correct answer out of a few suggested answers on the given sheet of paper, which usually begin from easy to lengthy questions. Although, question set in these tests are not so difficult but the time of answering these questions is short. The candidate has to make up his high speed in answering these numerous questions.
    " There are two kinds of intelligence tests, Verbal and Non-verbal.
    Verbal Tests
    In Verbal Tests, the items are expressed in language forms. These tests are of various types, like;

    Answers: Fly, Run, Weak (correct answer is Fly),
    • Inserting of missing number or figure
    Example: Complete the series:
    2, 6, 9, 13, 16, --, --

    In missing figure questions, a series of drawing or patterns or designs are arranged in the particular pattern and the candidate is asked to choose the required figures out of the choices indicated, which will come next in the series. These are the non-verbal types of tests.
    • Words Forming
    This test measure the ability of the candidate in word building. Here, the words are built either by prefixing (before) or suffixing (fixing at the end) new letters or taking off from or adding new letters to the body of the words.

    Example: Imagine a single letter which when added to the body of the following words forms entirely new words;
    FIST, TICK, HEAT, BUST
    Solution: The candidate will see that if the word R is added to each of the given words then new words will be; FIRST, TRICK, HEART, BURST
    Hence the answer is R
    • Jumbled Words
    The word jumble means to be mixed together without order.
    Example: Which choice mentions the last letter of the word from the following jumbled spelling?
    Choices: L, B, F, T
    Answer: L (the correct word is Football)
    • Formation of correct sentence
    Example: Rearrange the following jumbled words to form a sensible sentence.
    o (1)The bud nipped must be evil in the.
    (2)All cats are not cats but all animals are animals.
    (3)One of the foretell to share things cannot come.

    Answers:
    o (1)The evil must be nipped in the bud.
    (2)All cats are animals but all animals are not cats.
    (3)One cannot foretell the shape of things to come.

    • General knowledge tests
    This is a test of general knowledge where the candidate is required to keep his general knowledge up to date.
    • Alphabetical test
    This test is based on alphabets. If a candidate has sharp memory then this question becomes quite simple.

    Choices: 18, 6, 3
    Answer: 3
    • Completion test
    In this test, some letters of the words, whose meaning are given against them are missing, the candidate is asked to fill in those missing letters.

    (2)quick-y (fast)
    (3)-h-rt (not tall)
    (4)-m-ll (not big)
    (5)-LL-H (creator)

    Answer: (2) L G (2)L (3)S O (4)S A (5)AA

    (3)Risk and Danger
    (4)Pain and Agony

    Answer: (2)
    • Direction test
    This test required a keen sense of section. The candidate must remember the distance covered in the direction. This will help him to answer the question correctly.

    Choices: North, South, West, East
    Answer: West
    • Spotting the stranger
    The candidates are supplied a group of words or numerical values in this test. Some of the words in group relate to one particular class but one or more words do not belong to that class.

    Choices: Principal, Professor, Headmaster, Teacher, Students
    Answer is 'Student'
    • Coding and decoding

    Solution: In this question;
    o Y stands for W
    C stands for A
    V stands for T
    G stands for E
    T stands for R

    A careful observation brings out that each letter in the alphabets stands for the letter two paces preceding it. Using the same principle, the letter H K T G will stand for F I R E.

    Physical Tasks
    For these physical tasks you should be carrying white short shirt, while shorts, white canvas shoes and white socks.

    Helpful Hints for Progressive Group task
    In tackling the obstacles of "Progressive Group Task", there are as a matter of fact, three main principles which are involved. They are, lever, bridge and swing. The plank or planks that are employed as helping material can be used either in the form of a lever or bridge according to the circumstances. A rope should invariably be tied, as the case may be, to the remotest end of the lever or bridge. This is very essential because it becomes impossible for the candidates to get or pull back the plank once they crossed over.

    Some of the fundamental rules which the Group Testing Officer clears to the candidates before beginning the task are;
    1. Out of Bounds Rule
    The whole ground area and any other structure 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 have soon to go back to the star line of that obstacle. If any object touches the out bounds areas, then the object should be carried back by the defaulter to the stat-line and then it should be brought forward again.
    2. 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).
    3. 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.
    4. 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.
    G.T.O (Group Testing Officer) Test

    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 enrich his role in subsequent group tasks. As 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.


    Group Planning Exercise
    This exercise begins soon after the Group Discussion, It is an outdoor 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 to some pints, 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 have to write down their chest numbers on the tip of the writing papers. The time for this written work is about 10 minutes. Thereafter, the candidate are required to discuss among themselves the situation and problems so as to arrive at a group solutions or plan. Every candidate is desired to express his views on the situation. All the candidates must arrive at a group plan. In the case the whole group is not unanimous in deciding the solution, then the plan accepted by the majority of the candidates is presented as the plan of the group. Then one of the candidate who is selected by the group itself stand up as a spokesman and present the plan to the Group Testing Officer. The time limit for discussion presentation is the observation and study of natural phenomena all around him. The time limit for discussion and presentation of the group plan is usually 20 minutes. After the presentation of group plan, the Group Testing Officer may ask the other candidate to give comments or criticism or suggestion. If any, to improve or modify the plan.



    Progressive Group task
    This task falls in outdoor series of tasks. In this task a group of 8 to 0 candidates are required to cross 4 obstacles of hindrances or restrictions in 40 minutes as a whole group. In tackling these hindrances, the candidates have to attach much importance to bridge, lever and swing as well as the helping material which they have to carry while crossing obstacles. Group testing officer will explain the nature and rules of task in the beginning.
    Half Group Task
    In Half Group Task candidates of a group who are, usually 8 to 10 are divided into two groups. In this task, each half group has to face only a single hindrance. They must carry the main material and the helping material with them, on crossing the obstacle to the other side of the obstacle.

    Example
    Within the starting line and the finishing line, there are two wooden platform Q and R and a moveable drum P. The middle portion of the drum which is marked red, is out of bounds. There are also three small planks lying outside the starting line. The candidate should cross over from the starting line to the finishing line with the aid of those small planks.
    Personal Interview
    In interview, generally, such questions are put to the candidate which bring out his common sense, his familiarity with the current national and international happenings and current social and political trends of the world.

    Remember, the person who conducts interview is not merely interest in his mere knowledge. Its gibes close attention to the candidate's reactions to various situations. It may, intentionally, endeavor to upset the mental stability of the candidate in order to discover his true personality. The Interviewer may attempt to annoy or provoke him by pronouncing his incorrectly, by not offering a chair to sit immediately, by asking to person certain odd errand, like, fetching water, serving tea, removing some furniture, etc. It is against respect to his by deliberately attributing certain wrong statements to him, pointing out to certain sports on his clothes, mixing up of personal facts. There are instances, where the interviewee has been asked to sing a song, recite a poem, crack a joke, etc. Such curious situations are coined by the Interviewer for bringing our the true value of the interviewee. In all such odd circumstances, the interviewee should attempt to retains his calmness and presence of mind.

    Usually the subjects for interview are Indo Pak history, World history, Geography, Physics, Chemistry, General Knowledge, Current affairs.
    Final Group Task
    In the series of Group Testing Officers' outdoor tasks, the "Final Group Task", is the last task. The time allowed in this task is usually 10 minutes but generally it is shortened by one or two minutes. As this task , once again is a task of group as whole, hence the qualities of team spirit, co-operation, initiative, proper planning, etc will count much.

    Example
    In the following obstacle, the candidates are given a rope, a plank and a structure. It is also their duty to take wounded man on the structure. The red portion is out of bound in this task.

    Command Task

    In this task, each candidate in the group, is selected in turn as commander by the Group Testing Officer. The commander chooses three or four candidates as his assistants for tackling an obstacle. The commander will be successful in his task if possesses qualities of a leader. He should be very intelligent in the selection of his assistants, in imparting them proper brief instructions, in getting labor out of them and assisting them properly whenever required. The assistants of the commander should also strive for the success of their leader. All the way, they should carry out his orders with sincere spirit and loyalty. The main purpose of the Group Testing Officer in the performance of command task, is to assess the value of the candidate as a commander. He also gets a glimpse of the qualities of the assistants of the commander, The candidates should also prove themselves to be useful, sincere, and loyal subordinates.

    The time allowed for the execution of the command task is usually 10 minutes.


    Helpful Hints
    • As a commander he should avoid seeking any suggestions from his subordinates.
    • In order to perform the duty of a commandership the candidate should avoid to do the work himself. He should supervise the whole work. At times, if necessary, he can extend his helping hand to others in the performance of smooth work.
    • The candidate as a commander, must see that nobody stands idle.
    • He must give utmost importance to the items of planning, supervising and execution of the work.
    • He should select a place which can enable him supervise the work in a most efficient manner.

    Individual Obstacles

    It is the individual task of each candidate, where candidate has to face every obstacle or hindrance or restriction in his individual or personal manner. These obstacles are usually 10 in number which are to tackled by a candidate in a brief time of 3 minutes only.
    1. Long jump.
    2. Walking over inclined small wooden planks.
    3. Crawling like a monkey.
    4. Waking across parallel ropes.
    5. Rope climbing

    Important tips about this bit, DONT fight or even argue or show the tiniest bits of annoyance...address the whole group as opposed to one friend or one rival. 1 of the topics is English and 2 in Urdu. Conclude and round up your idea, but do have the decency to let others speak and aleast pretend that you are listening to them. Also don't for a second laugh or take unseriously some one elses opinion. Be respectful and serious with all, don't try to belittle but be firm. If you have expressed your view, dont change it no matter what.

    Don't try to use short cuts/don't cross area restricted by GTO during test....if you do so by mistake then accept your mistake ASAP,if you won't they will take it as Cheating.Sometimes people think that GTO is ignorant at this small moment but actually he is watching everything from his Big Black spectacles.

    A friend of mine went to ISSB two years ago,before the group planning test GTO said,No body will touch the model. During the test GTO asked all team members Are you guys sure that no body is touching the model...everybody said no. After few seconds my friend realized that his tie is touching the model when he lean to watch the model,he apologized the GTO who was keeping a watch on all of them;)

    A tip for interview...always look into the eyes of the interviewer,if you won't they will consider you a Liar...looking into eyes while talking means you have confidence in whatever you are saying.

    GUIDELINE

    At ISSB, we are looking for alert, motivated candidates who have the potential to complete the long, arduous and extensive training which faces all newly commissioned officers in the service. The Selection Board is looking for many things, such as clear thinking, the ability to remain calm under stress and strain, team skills and willingness to participate. We don’t want you to display rashness or aggression; neither do we want you to be dull or spiritless. Be honest, straightforward and frank. Don’t display over-consciousness, false projection or superficial behavior. Over the years some private institutions and coaching centers have mushroomed in the country to train the candidate for passing ISSB tests. You are advised not to join these for training and guidance. The training imparted in these centers is too restricted and brings in rigidity in thought process.


    Appearance
    You can tell a lot from a person’s appearance. Show us you have got a sense of personal pride.

    Self Confidence
    Self-confidence and maturity are largely the product of experience. You can strengthen these qualities by participating in-group activities, taking on responsibility and exercising independence.
    Expressions
    We look for people with good expression, may it be Urdu or English, clear direction, a good vocabulary and sense of grammar. Try to develop these by joining in debates and group discussions.

    Academic Ability
    Good academic results mean you will be good at absorbing the training of advanced and sophisticated equipment. Make your English and Mathematics sound.

    Leadership
    If you possess the above qualities, you will have a greater potential for leadership training. Try and seek out positions of responsibility in academic, youth, social or sports activities.

    Fitness
    Take adequate physical exercise in the run up before you report at the ISSB.

    Motivation
    You should be convincing and sincere in your reasons for wanting to join armed forces. Make sure you really know for what and why you are applying.

    Awareness
    We are looking for people with an awareness of the world around them, and an interest in military matters. Discuss current affairs and defence issues with your parents, teachers and friends and keep yourself updated with good newspapers.
