What Is PPDT (Picture Perception & Discussion Test)| Sample PPDT Images

What Is PPDT : PPDT technically known as Picture Perception & Discussion Test is an important screening test in SSB interview process. It is held under Screening Test (Phase-I Selection) on Day 1 of SSB Interview. It is held after OIRT (Officer Intelligence Rating Test). PPDT includes description followed by discussion on it.

Picture Perception and Description Test (PPDT) Process

What Is PPDT : PPDT (Picture Perception and Description Test) involves writing a story on one given picture (As in TAT), narrating the same individually and finally a Group Discussion wherein the candidates (Between 15 to 20) after hearing each other story are required to discuss and formulate one common story.

The candidates are shown a blurred picture for a time period of 30 seconds. Based on it, candidates are then alloted a time period of 4 minutes to write a story on it. The story should contain the details related to the picture such as- what led to the situation, what is happening now and what will be the outcome. (Past, Present & Future).

Candidates are also expected to mark all the characters shown in the box present at the left side of the paper with encirclement of position of the central character in the picture. The details of the character in the picture such as Age, Sex (Male or Female), and Mood should also be mentioned. 1 minute extra is alloted to write the action before starting the story.

Group Discussion 

What Is PPDT : Now a Group Discussion is conducted wherein the candidates (Between 15 to 20) after hearing each other’s story are required to discuss and formulate one common story. One student is chosen among the group to narrate the common story.

The time for discussion is about 15-20 minutes. Writing, narration and discussion have to be done in English language.

The Group Discussion part of the PPDT is almost indistinguishable from that of the one in the GTO test. You would have seen that at whatever point somebody has a discussion about any subject, conflicts and clashes will undoubtedly occur. That is also the concept of GD (Group Discussion) in PPDT.

Conflict can prompt disappointment and passionate problem. However, it can likewise additionally prompt objection. Dealing with this requires a bunch of abilities. How you respond to an inconsistency in the serious case is the thing that intrigues the assessors.

The test framework needs to perceive how you respond to a logical inconsistency. It is right to say that you are can remain sincerely stable even with it? It is right to say that you are fit for keeping a level of persistence tuning in?
