In the medical examination, one will need to appear for all kind of medical checkups like Chest X-ray, Lungs check, Kidney, Liver and all other body organs.
The Doctor makes the final report after the proper checkups. If you have any minor problem and that is correctable and can be corrected within six months, you may get time for the treatment of this. If you get a permanent rejection, there is no way to get back.

You will only need to clear the SSB Interview. Well, SSB Interview is a tough entry. It is not easy to clear. Well in the case of NDA entry, It is hard to clear even a Written examination and those who clear the written exam will proceed for the SSB Interview. The Process and Procedure of the SSB Interview are completely the same for NDA SSB as well as TES SSB Interview.
