Oh, and the intelligence (verbal/ non-verbal) test you took in the initial is nothing compared to what you'll be put through in ISSB

And if clearing ISSB was as easy as 'cramming a book', everyone and their cat would be an army officer.

The subject test you took in the initial stage + your AHQ/GHQ interview (after you're recommended by the ISSB) are taken into account when merit lists are combined. So the point of your degree is not lost at all.
If you're more "qualified" in your subject than you will, of course, score better in those, right?

ISSB simply measures if you have the right aptitude for the military. It does not measure your understanding of a specific subject and rightly so.
Have you served in military? Or do you have experience related to issb for short service commission. Can we have contact so that I can ask some specific questions please
