Mounika Chinnanaraju

At AHSSB, the candidates are familiarized with the SSB selection process and criteria which reduces unwanted worries and stress. Every query and doubt is addressed with appropriate answers with explanations. The faculty members are expert in their fields and give important and valuable inputs to develop one’s personality and increase chances of clearing SSB. Proper study material is provided with personal attention and enough practice sessions so you don’t have to roam around to find the the required knowledge and information.
Col. Rahul Chandra sir , Capt.Joseph sir , Dr. Ramesh sir and Col. Patel sir are all very supportive and informative in terms of guiding and building the personality of a candidate , simultaneously they are good task masters which helps one to see within and improve on the shortcomings.
At AHSSB a candidate surely comes out as a better prospective candidate to get recommended and most importantly a better human being.
I would advice every SSB aspirant to get in touch with Col. Rahul Chandra sir to acquire and develop the knowledge and traits required to be an officer.

My time with the faculty at AHSSB played a major role in my recommendation at SSB Bangalore. Rahul sir guided me and showed me how to be my true self. He would always make sure that I don’t miss a single important session. He taught us about gto tasks such as PGT AND FGT and Command tasks even on online platform through his models. The regular interactions with psychologists and interviewing officers refined me. I would like to thank AHSSB for their effort and hardwork.

I have been recommended from 4 AFSB Varanasi on 13th august, 2021. My reporting date was 9th august 2021.
I want to thank AHSSB academy where I got the practice and most important developed new thoughts for GD by conversing with the peer group, I also developed much-needed confidence and tried my best to grasp all the experiences everyone shared there, rather than coaching it was training which builds the correct approach and sir gave the much-wanted direction to how effectively and honestly we can portray ourselves there. I believe being honest and determined towards the armed forces can get you recommended with confidence and the come what may attitude which helped me in the recommendation from the board.
