Individual Obstacles in #ISSB

Every candidate has to go through individual obstacles on the fourth day of ISSB tests. You will be given a
briefing session in the hall before the commencement of Individual Obstacles. There are total 9 obstacles
which you’ll be given 2 minutes to attempt. Some of them are very easy and some of them are difficult.
Every obstacle has different marks, according to its level of difficulty. There is no limit on the number of
obstacles attempted. You can repeat any obstacle if you have done all obstacles once and if you have some
time left. The areas on the obstacles painted red are out of bound and would result in a foul if you touch
them, so be careful. Following is the detail of all obstacles:
1. Ditch
Dimensions of the ditch are 7’6” in length and 4’ deep. Its square in shape. You’ll have to jump across it.
TIP: Run and focus at the finishing end of the ditch, don't look inside the ditch while jumping otherwise you
will be in trouble.
2. Tire
A tire is suspended by a rope. You’ll have to pass through the tire.
TIP: Hold the rope with your hands and pass your legs first from the tire and then the whole body. Let go of
the rope when your arms are about to enter the tire.
3. Hanging Bridge
It consists of a hanging plank on the ditch supported by four poles on the corners of the ditch. You’ll have
to clear that ditch with/without the help of the plank.
TIP: Just run and put your one foot in the middle of the plank and the other foot outside the ditch. Don't
touch the ropes of the hanging bridge as it would result in a foul.
4. Boxing Ring
There are 3 ropes marked red at the height of 3 feet from the ground. You will have to cross the first rope
from above, second rope from below and the third rope from above as well.
TIP: Don’t rush, take your time and avoid touching the ropes.
5. High Jump
It consists of a rod placed between two poles, height of the rod is 4.5 feet and you’ll have to jump over it
without the rod falling from the poles. Touching the rod is not considered a foul unless it drops to the
ground; in that case, you’ll have to do it again in order to clear it.
TIP: Practice high jumps in the playground before going to ISSB. All you need is good speed and powerful
jump. There is no shortcut/technique to it.
6. Zig Zag
There are 3 elevated platforms which you’ll have to walk/run on. The first platform is 3 feet high at the
start and 4 feet high when in ends. From there you’ll have to step on the second elevated platform which
ends at 6 feet in height. From there you’ll have to step on the third platform which end at 8 feet in height.
In the end you’ll have to jump on the sand below from 8 feet.
TIP: Just keep your body balanced and avoid touching the platform with hands as it would result in a foul.
7. Tarzan Swing
You will have to swing yourself with the help of a rope from one elevated platform to another. Between
these two platforms, all the ground is out of bound, touching the ground will result in a foul and you’ll have
to do it again. Just jump to the platform when the helper gives you the rope and swing to the other
platform and jump.
TIP: Hold the rope with medium sized grip, not from the end nor too high. Otherwise either you’ll touch
the ground or you won’t be able to land on the other platform. Fold up your legs in order to avoid contact
with ground.
8. Monkey Bridge
There are two parallel ropes at the height of 14 feet. At the start there is a ladder to reach the starting
point and then you have to cross these parallel ropes by holding the upper rope with your hands and
placing your feet on the lower rope, at the end you’ll have to climb down through another rope.
TIP: Don’t fear from the height. Just keep your focus and grip the rope strongly. While coming down the
rope, don’t slide through it as it will injure your hand.
9. Rope
It consists of a rope; its height is 9 feet. You’ll have to climb it from one side, then cross the pole on the top
and climb down from the opposite side.
TIP: Its simple to say but If you have stamina of at least 8 to 9 chin-ups than you can easily do it.

ISSB Group Discussion

ISSB Group Discussion Topics and Tips When candidates have been divided into groups and introduced to the GTO, The GTO gathers them into a room which has a spherical sitting. This room is the room of group discussion. The first task of the GTO is the group discussion. This is one of the most important task as the candidate creates his first impression to the GTO on the basis of Group Discussion Task.  As the first impression is the last impression, the candidate should be careful in his choice of words and his viewpoints.  First of all, before starting a group discussion, every candidate sitting in the circle introduces himself to his other mates about his educational qualifications, the city of residence, hobbies etc. Sometimes the Group Testing Officer or the GTO gives one compulsory topic to the candidate to talk upon whereas in other cases he gives a couple of topics.

History of the KASHMIR conflict

A brief history of the Kashmir conflict
The Kashmir dispute dates from 1947. The partition of the Indian sub-continent along religious lines led to the formation of India and Pakistan. However, there remained the problem of over 650 states, run by princes, existing within the two newly independent countries. In theory, these princely states had the option of deciding which country to join, or of remaining independent. In practice, the restive population of each province proved decisive. The people had been fighting for freedom from British rule, and with their struggle about to bear fruit they were not willing to let the princes fill the vacuum. Although many princes wanted to be "independent" (which would have meant hereditary monarchies and no hope for democracy) they had to succumb to their people's protests which turned violent in many provinces. Because of its location, Kashmir could choose to join either India or Pakistan. Maharaja Hari Singh, the ruler of Kashmir…

گناہ کبیرہ

بخاری و مسلم کی ایک حدیث میں ہے کہ: رسول کریم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا کہ کبیرہ گناہوں میں بھی جو سب سے بڑے ہیں تمہیں ان سے باخبر کرتا ہوں، وہ تین ہیں، اللہ تعالی کے ساتھ کسی مخلوق کو شریک ساجھی ٹھہرانا، ماں باپ کی نافرمانی اور جھوٹی گواہی دینا یا جھوٹ بولنا۔




Ans:24 — When you divide Tina’s age, 16, into four, you’ll find that her brother is four. Meaning, when Tina is 24, her brother will be 12. When he’s 12, her brother will be half Tina’s age.

Ans:56398 — By attributing each number to a letter from the word OCEAN, you find the solution.

Ans: 5 — A fifth of 200 is 40, halving that gives you 20 and then dividing that by four will leave you with five.

Ans:Studying — A virus is fixed by a vaccine, the same way an exam is helped by studying.

Ans:Suited — The exact definition of suited is “right or appropriate for a particular person, purpose or situation”.

Five trips — Eric can only carry three bottles per trip meaning after four trips he’ll be left with one bottle. His fifth trip, Eric will carry one.

BANNU GULL   بنوں گل
Origin of the Name “Bannu”
There is a misunderstanding about the name “Bannu”. It is said that one of the wife of Shah Farid, the ancestor of the people of Bannu was named “Bano” that’s why the place was given the name . This is a silly and humorous logic. There are many proofs that the above mentioned reason for the name “Bannu” is wrong.

Some fifteen hundred years ago, a Chinese tourist writer“Heon Sang” has called it Banna. Also some thirteen Hundred years ago a Muslim historian “Al-Bilazari” has mentioned the name Banna or . Both these two historians have lived many hundred years before Shah. Secondly pushtoon culture never permits people to make public the name of their women. They rather keep it secret from other people. Then how it can be possible that they would have chosen a name of a woman for their city.
Welcome to Bannu

Bannu is a district of Khyber PakhtunKhwa Province (old name of the province was N.W.F.P - North West Frontier Province), in Pakistan.…
