Interview Defined Current Affairs For UPSC
The motive of the questions in the IAS interview is to analyze the candidate’s suitability to live in administration. The fact that it’s not a mandatory task that that one has to answer all the questions to get good marks in the UPSC Personality Test. Often, it is not about whether you know the precise answer to the question but how you actually come across as an individual when put under some pressure.
There are lakhs applying for the Civil Services Examination, about 8,000-15,000 qualify for the mains, and then about 2000-3,000 are shortlisted for the interview. From this, about 700-1,000 candidates are finally selected for the various posts. Interview or Personality Test is the most important step in the selection procedure because it connects both the UPSC and aspirant. A UPSC Civil Services interview lasts for about 30 minutes. The interview carries 275 marks out of the total 2025.
Many students have a misconception that the CSE interview is a knowledge test. It is not a knowledge test but a personality test. The purpose of the interview is to check whether the candidate is suitable for a career in civil services. That is, whether the candidate has the potential to demonstrate good administrative skills.
Interview according to UPSC is described to be a test of a candidate’s overall personality which includes analytical ability, lateral thinking, logical decision making, etc.
The objective of the interview is to assess the personal suitability of the candidate for a career in public service by a Board of competent and unbiased observers. The test is intended to judge the mental caliber of a candidate. In broad terms, this is really an assessment of not only his/her intellectual qualities but also social traits and his/her interest in current affairs. Some of the qualities to be judged are mental alertness, critical powers of assimilation, clear and logical exposition, the balance of judgment, variety, and depth of interest, ability for social cohesion and leadership, intellectual and moral integrity.
The board tests a candidate on integrity, the depth in understanding, awareness about issues happening around, and how well a candidate is able to analyze and apply these issues in his/her answer.
The UPSC interview questions test the candidates’ mental acuity, general awareness, social etiquette, and overall personality. The questions in the IAS interview are not meant to solely ascertain the theoretical knowledge so instead of mugging up, candidates should focus on their soft skills.
The IAS interview questions faced by Civil Service aspirants follow a similar pattern.
To answer questions related to self-introduction in an IAS interview, which are open-ended and straightforward, aspirants should prepare 30-40 second coherent responses. These questions are merely setting a baseline i.e. the eminent UPSC board will use the information you give to ask follow-up questions.
The basic educational qualification for the UPSC CSE exam is graduation. The questions in the IAS interview may be oriented towards your graduation subject or the latest trends in the same. However, if you don’t know the answer to a particular question then trying to bluff your way out is not advised. It’s better to be humble and truthful.
Reading newspapers and following the daily news is important from the UPSC IAS Interview perspective as well. The IAS interview questions can refer to the latest news topics. Try to avoid giving one-dimensional opinion/information unless the question is relatively straightforward.
Be prepared to answer questions about any gaps in your work history and how your previous experience is going to help in your career as an administrator.
Here, the nature of questions varies depending on the hobbies you have listed in your DAF. For those who have listed sports as a hobby, the Panel has asked questions on famous sports persons or/and latest results. A few candidates have also been asked to sing during the interview process.
“Before appearing for the interview, candidates brush up on current events, politics, domestic and international policies, or even small things happening in your town or city. Before you start answering, make a quick mental note of your points. This exercise will help you collate all your points and answer well.”
“Be positive and have a balanced approach while stating your views on a topic. Remember that being extremely critical is not a good approach. If you don’t know something, it is okay to honestly accept it and say, ‘Sorry, I don’t know that. ”
“The interview ultimately is a test of your personality and not your knowledge. Aspirants should remember everything that you mentioned in the application form. Take as many mock interviews as possible. It will help in preparing you for the real thing, and also boost your confidence.”
“Do not be apologetic. In case there is a question to which you have no answer, do not get flustered or let that stump you. Be courteous while telling the interviewees that you do not know the answer to the question.”
