Officer Selection Board~Picture Perception and Description Test (PPDT)

Guys i am putting this post to put a general view of Basic screening test in SSB or SSB screening test, how things goes in BST, and what general instruction should be followed in BST (Day 1), how to analyse the PPDT picture and how to write a better story.

The culmination of BST-I and BST –II commences with Picture Perception and Description Test. Let us analyse the requisites of this test and essential ingredients which should be kept in mind to undergo the test. The students are exposed to a picture through the help of video projector, OHP, for a total period of one minute. The students should see the picture critically, since the picture is blurred and recognition of the characters in the picture is very essential to reach to a rational understanding. The psychologist will explain the procedure and give exhaustive guidelines which should be adhered strictly as per the laid down norms. A sheet of paper will be provided to append your story most appropriate to the picture, keeping in mind the guidelines given subsequently. A rectangle will form part of the sheet, which can be utilized to endorse the number of characters, mood and attitude and general age profile of the person seen in the picture.


Always remember, making your assessment of the central character and the characters, basically depicts your own personality and your viewpoint to include the people around you. In psychology of SSB, there is no right/wrong answer but  the appreciation of the picture in question should be correctly interpreted and commented, Remember , the picture are shown to suit your profile in general, hence anything not suiting your profile or working  beyond your limitations should not be penned, your should write a detailed account of the picture , which should be comprehensive and complete in all respects.


Do not be in a hurry to write, buy see the picture critically. Critical analysis will help you ascertain the picture fully and improve your perception at the time of writing. Once, the approximately five minutes to write your story on the picture. After the elapsed period, your sheet will be taken away and given appropriate time for your discussion.
