This is the first item of the G.T.O.'s test series which the Candidate have to undergo after they have done with Intelligence and Psychology test .All candidates divided into 4-5 groups each having 8-10 candidates each.Each individual group then placed under one G.T.O,then they provided with a long rope or bundle of long mat called as snake.The group is then asked to carry this snake across 4-8 obstacles one after another.

There are certain rules imposed on the candidates and their respective G.T.O.'s watch for the implementations of those rules.If they found some group carrying their tasks by breaching or violating those rules,then there are penalties for the whole group.

Some of the general principles and rules regarding Snake race are :-

  • This is a test,meant to check the team-spirit and command qualities of the candidates.A good candidate always try to bound the whole team, encouraging them to complete he task.   
  • There are certain areas along the path,which are marked red.Candidates are instructed never to touch that red area.If someone do so, the whole group face penalty.
  • The snake provided to the candidates is to be carried straight without bending or folding.
  • Unless the last candidate in the group has crossed a particular obstacle,the group is no allowed to move on to he next obstacle.
  • Any disjoint effort on the part of an individual candidate is likely to have substantial repercussion on the result to be achieved at the end.
  • The candidates should focus on physical effort rather then on a gift of the grab.
  • In this test , it is joint effort and performance of each group that matters.Hence coordination and concentrated effort is the key.
  • Candidates should put in their best efforts and should not feel dis-hearted even if the group loses the race.
