The Prestigious Indian Army has a simple motto for training its cadets: 'we first break you, then make you'.
Boys go through gruelling weeks of physical hardship and come out as men fit enough to serve the nation at times of war. Once soldiers are inducted, the Army ensures they are prepared (mentally & physically) to perform at their absolute best, even in extreme circumstances.
However, the Army demands certain prerequisites before you can join.
The First Physical Test You Need To Clear Is The 1600 M Run.
Note: This test is conducted for non-commission entries for the Indian Army, Navy, Air Force and equivalent ranks in Police & Paramilitary forces.
