Importance of OIR in selection

Officers Intelligence Rating (OIR) is the first test conducted in the SSB testing procedure followed by Picture Perception & Description Test (PPDT). In this test, the Intelligence level of the candidate is tested which varies from OIR one to five. ‘One’ OIR is the highest rating while the ‘five’ is the lowest rating. Higher OIR rating facilitates candidate’s selection during PPDT for Phase II selection. For lower OIR ratings 4 or 5, the candidate must convince at least one or all three assessors respectively, to get screened in for the Phase II selection.
