Personality test is the final barricade to cross for achieving the dream of becoming a Civil Servant. Aspirants after clearing Prelims and Mains Examination get anxious for this last stage and why not? Failing this stage will drop them at the starting point, going through the year long process again. Knowing what UPSC panel is searching for in the candidate to be a civil servant can help aspirants prepare well for this stage. Hence, aspirants seek mock interviews conducted by various IAS coaching institutions for the guidance. Before mentioning where to seek guidance for the interview, let’s have an overview of the Personality test in UPSC CSE:

  • Personality Test is an assessment of not only the intellectual qualities but the social character of the candidate.

  • The objective of this interview stage is to assess and analyze the personality suitable for the public service with officer-like qualities; leadership, alertness, communication skills, patriotism, mental calibre, decision making, work ethics, aptitude and moral integrity.

  • The candidate interviewed by a Board/Panel will have a record of his/her educational background and career so far.

  • Candidates can be asked questions on the matters of their general interest and hobbies they mention in their DAF.

  • The interview test is not to test the knowledge of the candidates, it has already been tested through the written examination but still aspirants should be aware of the current events and think critically upon them as this is one of the traits of a Civil servant (updated about current events).

Aspirants must introspect themselves for above qualities and start working on them as early as possible. There is a very wrong notion that one should present himself raw to the board without getting polished for the said qualities. Though it is true that one should be honest, it's not always in one’s interest to face such a crucial test without the adequate preparation. It is important to meet the standards expected by the interview panel.

Reaching the standard where you score not less than 190, you really need to work hard. It is in the best interest of the aspirant to put more efforts for the interview stage than what they have had put for prelims and mains. This final stage is a final chance to get into those coveted services. Seek proper guidance and feedback to improve yourself before the "D-day".
