10 Common Mistakes in PIQ Form
Filling Wrong Data: Data in your PIQ form is the whole matter on behalf of which you will be asked countless questions during the Personal Interview. Whenever the SSB Instructor explains the Batch about PIQ form, there are many candidates who used to ignore it, resulting in wrong data filling. This mostly happens when you are told to write the population of your city/village/town. Lack of knowledge let you write wrong data that can be easily cross-checked by the Assessors at SSB.
Too Many Mistakes: To fill the complete form, you are provided with a plethora of time that you can use to fill the complete PIQ form easily. But many SSB candidates make a number of mistakes while filling the form. Too many mistakes annoy the assessor while tracking your PIQ and hence build your negative image. To fill the PIQ form you are given nearly half an hour, but many candidates tend to fill the PIQ form in a hurry, resulting in multiple mistakes in PIQ.
Using Acronyms: It’s a common phenomenon that whenever you are offering your biodata, you tend to deliver as much clear information to the assessor as possible. In this, using the acronyms cause a big problem. There are many candidates who prefer using acronyms instead of using the complete word. For e.g. K.V. will be used in place of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Engg. for Engineering, which is never suggested. You need to write everything clearly without using any acronyms.
Leaving the Blanks Empty: Whenever you leave anything blank it seems that you forget to fill it. The same mentality goes when it comes to your PIQ form too. Most of the candidates leave the options empty which shows their irresponsible nature. If there is something in your PIQ form which you don’t want to fill, writing ‘NA’ in the blank is the best option. This will indicate the assessor that the candidate has nothing to write in that blank.
Writing Wrong Hobbies: Hobbies are actually defined as the task that you do in your leisure time for the sake of enjoyment. Most of the candidates write something apart from this definition in order to build positive impact on the assessors at SSB. For e.g. Reading Books is not any hobby, instead of Reading Novels, Reading Technical magazines is somewhat that is termed as your hobby. This mistake in your PIQ results in multiple questions during your Personal Interview. So, it’s better to avoid these mistakes in PIQ prior to its submission.
Hiding Number of Previous Attempts: This is one of the biggest mistakes in PIQ, repeaters make. While filling the PIQ form, a few of the candidates tend to hide their previous attempts.

But against that, a few of the candidates don’t write complete information, who is then considered to be an unreliable person.
Avoiding ‘Outstanding Achievements’ Section: Most of the candidates avoid the Outstanding Achievements section and leave it blank. This shows that they have not done anything extraordinary in their academics/sports. The outstanding achievement shows your extraordinary earnings during your school, college or other academic tenures. It depends upon you, what you consider as extra-ordinary achievements when compared with other students in your educational tenure. For e.g. if you have scored above 80 marks in all the subjects, it’s your outstanding achievement to get 1st division score in all the academic subjects.
