2. You will be shortlisted and will be called for SSB based on your first preference. So if you opted for both but gave first preference to “Education Branch”, you will be called for the same.

If you don’t get shortlisted for the preferred branch, you would be considered for the remaining branches

So I suggest you opt for both branches while filling the form. Choosing only one and not getting shortlisted for the same, would not get you considered for other branches.
