Improve your English: Work on the foundation of your English writing and speaking skills, work on your grammar, since the exam has section of English it’s better to prepare it. Also, speaking good English will help you in interview.

Be physically fit: To get through the latter two stages of the exam you must make yourself absolutely fit. You must practice regularly to build up your energy and stamina as you will be required to undergo basic physical obstacle course during SSB.

Make a routine: You must learn to use your time judiciously. You must practice effective time management techniques.
