ISSB Picture Story Writing Tips and Samples

By | July 31, 2016

The third most important tool to assess a candidate is the ISSB Picture Story Writing. In this test all you have to do is to make a story of a picture shown to you on the multimedia. The pictures shown in this test are basically sketch pictures with no colors. Different objects or characters are shown on a picture and you have to make a story out of it. This is done to assess the nature of perception of a person and is very strong tool for psychologists. ISSB Picture Story Writing is also called Thematic Apprehension Test in psychological term.

Number of Pictures:

A sum total of 4 pictures will be shown to you on the multimedia. Each picture will last for a limited period of time so that you can write down a story.

Time:

A single picture will be shown for 30 seconds and then more 30 seconds will be given to you to make a story out of it. After that, you will be given 3.5 minutes to write down a story. The same process will be repeated for other 3 pictures.

Tips to attempt ISSB Picture Story Writing

Following are some of the helpful tips to tackle the ISSB Picture Story Writing.

  • Watch the picture carefully. Notice the details like characters, expressions, actions, objects and the surroundings.
  • Make an idea or a story out of that picture in the 30 seconds provided to you. You have to think of a story quickly.
  • Your story must be relate able to the picture shown.
  • Irrelevant details if written will waste your own time.
  • Write approximately 12 lines.
  • Try to end your story by writing the complete concept you want to deliver.
  • Your writing must be illegible.
  • Write your own idea and do not copy the ideas of others.
  • Never ask for picture description from an ISSB staff member.
  • Once completed and got any time left, try to read it once again.
  • Do not panic and write what your mind says.

      After F.Sc exam in medical, you can apply for Admission in as Medical Student, and after completing degree you will be appointed as Captain, and after Bachelors in Technical or Software you have to apply for short service commission, that also leads to the rank of captain.
