STRATEGIES FOR BECOMING A WARRIOR
When an aspirant dreams to join the defence forces, many questions pop up in his/her mind, like- How to start, when to start etc. The best timing of pondering over these questions is just after 10th exams. It gives an aspirant ample opportunity to explore and choose his/her interest area and opt for the subject which will further reinforce his/her preparation.
If one decides to go for NDA/ Airforce X & Y or Navy SSR/ AA, one can start one’s preparation along with academic studies of class 11th and 12th. Hence one can work concurrently as the demands of these exams are based on class 10+2. If one is preparing for JEE and has written Mains can apply for Army TES (Technical entry scheme) and Navy 10+2 B.tech entries which provide direct SSB Interview.
Apart from written exam preparation one can plan well for physical fitness, personality development and inculcation of OLQ’s if one plans at the right time.
Somehow if one decides to join defence forces after graduation, it can be a benefit of preparing for many entries and exams with same strategies. Exams like, CDS, CAPF, AFCAT etc. demands same calibre for both Written and SSB interview. Some smart moves while graduating can increase one’s attempts i.e.
• Rather than plain graduation one can opt for technical degree which will enable one’s to go for direct SSB like- TGC, SSC Tech, INET etc.
• One should join NCC which not only shapes the personality, but also teaches how to live a disciplined life and at the same time opens a portal of direct SSB entry.
• Doing LLB also gives a golden opportunity to join the defence forces via JAG entry.
