Abstract : This study points out the extent to which educational and socio-economic factors determine success at the Services Selection Boards for entry into the Indian Military Academy. Biographical questionnaries of 456 candidates are tabulated and statistically treated. Some of the factors are highly significant determinants of success. The findings are compared with a similar study carried out earlier on National Defence Academy entrants. The comparison points out the likelihood of these influences being superficial and temporary.
