  • Personal information:

Your personal information includes your name, parents name and occupation, marital status, spouse name (if married), kin, siblings, siblings occupation, step siblings (If any) cast, favorite personality and so on. You have to right exact information in the form. Sometimes the occupation of your parents is not so clear. For example if your father is a simple farmer and not have much land owned only by him you still have to right it exactly that he is a farmer, do not right ‘landlord’ if he is not. Similarly, if your mother is a simple housewife just right it. Don’t try to be over smart and give misleading information.

  • Hobbies, sports and interests:

You hobbies, sports and interests are also asked in the same category and you have to write down what it is meant. Don’t try to exaggerate or try to write something which is never your hobby or interest. If your interest is in politics or current affairs it will also give a chance to the interviewer to ask as much questions from this interest as he wants to. Similarly, if reading is your hobby you may be asked about the kind of books you read, latest book you have read, its story line, etc and similar things. If you are good in some sports just write it down. If you are part of any local or college team then mention it, it won’t put a bad impact. But if you are not a sport person and just a match watching person on TV, simply mention it.

  • Cast and Sub-cast:

Your cast and sub-cast are asked in the ISSB Bio data Form. In simple words, cast means your ‘zaat’. In our society we are having so many casts and these casts are further divided into sub-casts. For example if you are a ‘Jutt’ it is your cast, but what kind of Jutt you are will refer to its sub-cast, for instance You are a ‘Jutt’  but may be ‘Sandhu’, ‘Kahloon’, ‘Gill’, ‘Cheema’, ‘Chatta’ , etc. these are the sub-casts and there are many sub-casts of a cast.

Fill out the form with your exact cast. If you are confused about it, ask your father or family.

  • Date of Birth:

Entering your date of birth is somewhat tricky. Actually you have to calculate your exact age the day you are at ISSB which means that how many years, months, days are you old at the moment.

For instance my date of birth is 6th May 1990 and today its 4 April 2016, how should i calculate my Age? The answer is simple. Do simple subtraction

4 – 4 – 2016 (minus)
6 – 5 – 1990
gives you 25 years 10 months 28 days. Just like this you have to calculate yours.

  • Relatives in Armed forces:

Yes. The question of relatives in any of the Armed forces is also asked. You have to provide detailed information about your relatives who are in Armed Forces. Ask your relatives about their official name as in documents, rank, post, their current address, your relation with them and where they are posted currently. It’s important to know all these things so that you should not get problem there.

Remember that by relatives means all kind of relatives like your paternal or maternal cousins, your parents’ cousins or kids of your parents cousins’ and so on. If you do not have any relative in any of the Armed forces simply mention in the box given in the ISSB Bio data Form.

  • Medical Fitness:

Although you have gone through a medical test before coming to ISSB but this is something different. Simple questions are asked so that they can know if you are able to perform the physical task without any physical hurdle. Questions are:

  • If you have gone through any surgical operation?
  • Were you ever knocked out unconscious by a fall or accident and for how long?
  • Did you ever suffer from: breathlessness, headache, sleeplessness, palpitation, muscular pains, muscular trembling, sensitive skin, tiredness, nausea/vomiting?

Answer these questions as they are asked. If you face any of such problems simply mention it and don’t try to mislead them. If you are suffering from any of such situation, the authorities will immediately know once you are in the field with them.

  • Incident about life:
