Inter Services Selection Board
|Pakistan Armed Forces|
The Inter Services Selection Board (ISSB) is a committee for the selection of candidates for officer commissions in the armed forces of Pakistan, the Army, Navy and Air Force. Selection is made on the basis of five days of psychological screening to test the ability, aptitude and personality of a candidate. The tests are held in any one of the three centers, namely Kohat, Gujranwala and Malir.
Candidates who pass the selection procedure qualify, provided that they pass a medical test, to undergo officer training at military academies, primarily the Pakistan Military Academy in Kakul, the Pakistan Naval Academy in Manora and the Pakistan Air Force Academy in Risalpur.
Coaching for the tests is not officially allowed, but nevertheless many academies do exist for this purpose, often run by retired army and ISSB officers.
