Q. Why do you want to join Pakistan Army, Pakistan Airforce or Pakistan Navy? (whichever armed force you are applying for) –Most important question and is asked repeatedly.
A. Sir, I want to join Pakistan Army because I have seen its disciplined and honourable life. Moreover, The pride my father took when he put on the uniform of Pakistan Army and the way he talked with grace, I also want to acquire these personality traits. Moreover, Army life values time which I admire the most. These qualities are not usually found in civil life.
Q. What if I send you to Pakistan Airforce or Pakistan Navy? (I was applying for Pakistan Army)?
A. The thing which you should understand here that they trick your brain to make you think that this is going to happen. Nobody can throw you in any armed forces without your approval.

Q. What will you do if your parents ask you to quit forces/ not join/ quit in wartime?
A. I think the most appropriate answer to this question is that “Sir, My parents have supported and motivated me to join Pakistan Armed Forces and I doubt they will discourage me to pursue this career in any stage of my life. If they will say me to leave Armed forces I will leave it if they give me a genuine reason. Similarly, in wartime, Sir it is not appropriate to leave your own motherland in case of any difficulty when it has given you so much. So I will stand by my motherland in every crisis.
