How to Face Interview?
“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals”.
-Henry David Thereon.
Civil services interview is the last & most important stage in a year long process of this exam. It is said that “while the mains examination ensures your selection in the services, the personality test decides your rank in the services.” Which you will be allotted & remember that the sheer weightage in the final selection in the personality test is 275 marks which takes the cake from you if you are not prepared well.
So there is a huge weightage accorded to a single stage & any blunder can either push you in two digit rank or it can push you out of the list.
Although it is supposed to be an unbiased test, it is far from that. The interview guidance program at RACE IAS makes efforts to minimize the chances of committing mistakes and give you an idea of the background of the real UPSC Interview in advance.
The focus of our interview panel is exactly that. Besides the knowledge aspects in relation to your bio-data, the interview panel will focus on refining candidates’ approach, attitude and aptitude to excel in UPSC’s personality test.
FOCUS AREAS OF THE INTERVIEW PANEL
The programme will focus on novel ways of presentation, communication, body language, emotional stability, sense of empathy and answering mechanism.
The interview panel, besides checking and updating candidates on their knowledge of day to day affairs of national and international importance, will specifically also check for qualities such as – balance of judgment, clear and logical exposition, intellectual and moral integrity, mental alertness and ability for social cohesion and leadership.
