Preliminary Viva: Join Bangladesh Army

Posted in: Join Bangladesh Army Jun, 26 2011 | Comments

After preliminary medical checkup, comes preliminary viva. It’s a fun part and most probably the easiest part of the selection process. But still some unfortunate applicants fail to pass this test.

Many people fail this test simply because they are afraid of this viva. Remember that this viva is NOTHING. If you are not a foul or dumb person you will get selected. A lot of people don’t get selected because they are very weak in English. Some get out because they try to be over smart.

Improve your English speaking skills. Try to speak in English with your younger brother and sister. You can also try to practice English infront of the mirror. Whenever you see an interesting thing, make a paragraph in your mind in English about it. Watch English cartoon or movies. Keep an “English to English” dictionary in your room and use it whenever you come across a new word. You don’t have to bother about grammer while speaking. Just make sure that you make the proper use of “he” and “she”…don’t mess it up. It sounds really bad if you say, “My mother is a housewife. HE is so great.” (‘Mother’ is a SHE, not HE). Preli viva can be in both Bangla and English, be prepared.

Wear formal dress. Some applicants go to the viva board wearing a half sleeve T-shirt and sandals. This is a killer mistake. Remember that you are going there for a job interview. You can’t dress up like that. You should wear a full sleeve shirt and a shoe. Don’t forget to tuck you shirt in you pants. Don’t make spikes in your hair. Don’t wear a tie on this day. Remember, first impression is very important.

When entering the room open the door and gently ask something like “May I come in sir?” I mean ask for their permission to get in the room. Don’t forget to Salaam or soothing like that.

Don’t sit on the chair until the sirs (there will be at least 3 respected officers) ask you to sit. Don’t ask for their permission to sit. They will ask you to have a seat whenever they wish to. You have to obey. Don’t forget to thank them for letting you sit down.

Sit straight. Don’t put your hands on the handle of the chair. It’s best to keep your hands over one another. You should cross your legs. By crossing legs I mean that both of your “ankles” should cross (1 payer ankle er upor r 1 payer ankle thakbe). NEVER put one of your legs over other leg’s knee (don’t cross your knees). Write to me if you have any confusion.

Speak in a clear voice and control your temper (and emotions). Don’t smile too much. Smiling a little is good. Look straight at the asker’s eye. Don’t look around while talking.

If you are asked questions in English answer them in English. If you are asked questions in bangle, answer in bangle. No need to be over smart and ruining your dream.

If you don’t know the answer to any of the questions, clearly say that you don’t know that answer. Don’t hesitate. There’s nothing wrong if you don’t know the name of the shortest person in the world. But you should be able to tell name of the capital of Bangladesh. Got my point?

Behave well and be yourself. Don’t be nervous. Give Salaam on your way out.

After everyone’s viva ends the result will be announced immediately.

Best of luck.
