(SSC PLANNER) Personality Test/Interview of SSC Exams

Interviews/Personality test forms a vital tool for assessing the personality traits of the candidates appearing for some of the recruitments where the incumbents to the posts are likely to come into contact with public or are required to display special characteristics. The Commission has been constantly reviewing the structure of interview and procedures followed in this regard with a view to have a real and holistic assessment of the interviewee and to make the assessment objective. The Commission conducts interviews in a well-structured manner. In order to ensure that the interview is conducted in a free and fair manner, in interviews with multiple boards, the Boards are allotted to nominate Board Presidents through draw of lots. Advisors are also shuffled. The performance of Interview Boards is monitored at the level of the Chairman and the Board Presidents are briefed suitably.

However, with effect from 01.01.2016, the Commission, in consonance with the decision of the Government, has discontinued the practice of conducting interviews for all posts of Group `B’ (nongazetted) and Group `C’ (non-technical). This will increase transparency and equity by putting candidates from rural background at par with the candidates from urban areas.
