IAS NEXT is proud to present an extensive Interview Guidance Program tailored for UPSC Civil Services Examination aspirants. This program, a vital component of the selection process, aims to refine your performance in the Personality Test, the culminating stage that profoundly influences your rank and cadre allocation.
Understanding the UPSC Interview
The UPSC interview evaluates a candidate’s holistic personality, encompassing analytical acumen, lateral thinking, and sound decision-making abilities. The panel, composed of seasoned and impartial assessors, scrutinizes the candidate’s aptitude for a career in public service. It scrutinizes not just intellectual prowess, but also social traits, current affairs engagement, mental agility, critical thinking, and eloquent expression. Furthermore, it appraises judgment, diverse interests, social cohesion, leadership potential, and most importantly, intellectual and moral integrity.
Duration: The interview spans approximately 30 minutes, with a 5-minute flexibility window to ensure a comprehensive evaluation.
Question Spectrum: The panel presents a diverse array of queries, ranging from exploring the candidate’s hobbies to probing their motivations for pursuing civil services. Expect discussions on current and historical issues, insight into educational background, optional subjects, regional concerns, global affairs, and contemporary events. Scenario-based questions are also employed to gauge the candidate’s analytical prowess.
