The candidate is tested not only for his/her intelligence but also for his/her overall personality development, his/her attentiveness, balance of judgement and qualities of honesty, integrity and leadership. Therefore preparation for the Interview requires proper planning.The selectors look out for some attributes in the candidate and decide whether he/she is suited for a career in civil services. For this, the candidate should have a positive attitude, should have an alert mind with quick reflexes, should be free from any sort of prejudice, should be good at making quick decisions and should have the ability to act under stress and to handle difficult situations.Preparation for the Interview is a continuous process. This involves a wide reading of books, journals, magazines and at least two newspapers.One should try to improve his/her conversational skills with the right pronunciation. The candidate should be prepared to answer questions on his background, hobbies and extracurricular activities.It is a good idea to discuss current affairs and recent issues with friends. One good way of rehearsing possible questions would be to have mock interviews and discussion groups. The candidate should make a self-analysis of his strengths and weaknesses and make a conscious effort to play on his strengths.Some useful tips for a successful interview at UPSC are:To have a positive body languageTo have a good personal appearance and ensuring the right postureTo answer questions clearly and confidentlyTry to remain calm and composed even when faced with provocative questionsTry not getting into long winded explanations and answer to the point.Things to Be Avoided at the UPSC InterviewAvoid the expression, 'I am sorry.'Avoid conversational cliches, like: 'as you know', 'that's correct', 'of course', 'indeed', 'obviously', etc.Avoid technical jargon. However, if a member continues to probe you in any technical field, you can use technical expressions.Maintain a cheerful disposition. Now and then you can appear serious; but most of the time keep smiling or look cheerful and composed.One caution here: if the board laughs, you should only smile. It is only when you maintain some amount of distance that the board begins to wonder about the depth of your personality.Do not give long introductions. Come straight to the point.Show human concern whenever possible in your answers.You should be logically consistent and analyse things rationally while talking. You are supposed to defend what you say, but with due respect to the views of the board. Stop trying to defend an answer if it becomes difficult to do so logically and fairly.Do not make hasty or sweeping generalisations.According to UPSC report, it has been observed that from 1979 onwards, 90 per cent of the candidates who qualify for interview hover around the minimal percentage of 55 per cent that is prescribed for the test. However to be assured of a Class I service, one has to generally obtain about 58 per cent marks. It has been noticed that only those, securing 60 per cent and above are sure of getting a service of their own choice.The figures clearly reveal that the marks in the interview test play a determining role in final selection of candidates.Types of questions asked at the UPSC interview.Relating to your name, any famous personality who has a similar or same name or surnameYour career choice, why you want to opt for the Civil ServicesWhat are your Hobbies, why you pursue such a hobby or questions related to your hobby, so research well on your hobby.Hot topics of recent days are most likely questions that can be asked. So keep reading and watching the news. If the recent headlines have something to do with your subject then specially revise those portions. For example if you are a veterinary doctor, Bird flu may go on to other animal diseases that can infect men. If you are an MBBS, then you might be asked about human to human spread of epidemics or any other epidemics and precautions etc. You may even be asked about the influence of MNC or drug manufacturers responsible for the spread of fear etc. If you are from an economy background, the same topic will veer towards the economic implications of the Bird flu.How you are going to use your specific knowledge (like if you are a doctor, lawyer, engineer etc) in the civil services can be another question that can be asked. Situational questions, like If you were the collector/SP of Varanasi, what would you do after the Bomb Blast?Choice of services, the order of your choice of services can raise questions too.About your institution and related question can be asked like if you have studied at the IIM you may be asked about the rising salaries, if from IGNOU then even about Indira Gandhi and so on.Questions can be asked from your form. You must go through the form you have filled because most questions can arise from there. If you have changed subjects, mentioned anything out of the way, watch out for questions around them. Interviewers can take cue from the form you have filled.Actual questions and answers asked of UPSC candidatesDon't you think you can serve your country better by remaining a doctor and treating poor patients? Why do you want to be a civil servant?"It would be best to answer this question very practically rather than emotionally saying you want to serve the country, because even a doctor serves the people. A doctor from Kerala was asked this Question and her reply was - "Because I want to treat the primary malady that afflicts our country that creates so many poor in India. As a doctor I can treat only secondary maladies." She even came up with exact statistics and suggestions on a rubber plantation for poverty alleviation indicating that she had spent considerable time and thoughts on her future plans. She was awarded a score of 85 per cent."What are the problems faced by wheat cultivators in your state?" An M.Sc. (Agriculture) student from Palanpur was once asked. "The problem is not so much to do with agronomy but with the lack of a seed bank in Palanpur, " was the reply and the candidate walked away with an 80 per cent score."Is there a law in physics, which is relevant to administration?" a law graduate was prompted. "Yes. Newton's third law of motion: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." He scored a cool 80 per cent.The above questions can give you an idea of how relevant questions are asked from your subjects even as they are not directly from the syllabus.The final results of the UPSC Mains exams are declared right after the interview or the personality test gets concluded. Candidates about double the number of vacancies are selected through the mains exams and called to appear for the interview. There are 275 marks allocated to the personality test. A good score in the personality test can determine your ranking in the final list of the civil services exam.For upsc interview preparation you can also join special interview batch conducted by chahal academy in ahmedabad.

How To Prepare For UPSC-Prelims UPSC-Prelims includes two objective type question papers of two hundred marks and two hours time duration for each paper. One is on General Studies and the other is General Aptitude Paper which has now replaced the optional subject that was there earlier. With the Civil Service exam having very limited seats it's a very difficult exam to crack. Many students appear multiple times to clear it.Changes in formats of question papers always tend to create a lot of mental discomfort in students. Many students are fearful of subjects like mathematics. This fear may be baseless considering the changes lay greater emphasis on the "aptitude" which mainly involves reasoning skills and not just mathematics.The civil services examination is basically a test to choose suitable administrators. It tests the candidate right from the stage when one starts the preparation. One common misconception about the prelims is that it is a test of facts and figures. That was never so and specially now. A candidate should have the right frame of mind and the will power to succeed in the exam. A proper action plan is needed for the preparation itself since he /she will be tested for some essential qualities like power of retention, clarity of concepts, ability to identify the correct alternatives with efficiency and accuracy. All this requires a quick decision making power.With the new pattern, more stress is on language skills and analysis and decision making capacities, so work on these on a consistent basis as these are skills that are developed over years and not just in a few months. It would be advised to start focusing on your problem solving and language skills as soon as you decide to take these exams. This is where CHAHAL ACADEMY is different from others and provides best coaching for upsc exam in ahmedabad.Paper 1 is on General StudiesThis includes areas likeIndian National Movement, Indian Polity, Basic Economic Understanding, GeographyWhile the dynamic part includes current affairs, GK and has no proper definition and syllabus making quite vast.Paper 2 includes mathematics, reasoning, analytical ability, and interpersonal skills. Unlike paper 1 which has a static part, paper 2 is dynamic in many sense.Unlike paper 1 where quantity of questions is a major determinant for the static section, paper 2 cannot be tamed without solving dynamic questions, that requires on the spot mental ability.Since the preliminary exam in particular is a test of endurance, candidate must prepare on the physical as well as mental level. The main constraint is the time one gets to answer the questions. On an average one gets around 40 seconds for each question.One sure way of dealing with this stress is to take a few deep breaths. Meditation and Yoga also help in dealing with stress to a great extent.The prelims exam since is a multiple choice question test, it needs a different preparation and a proper strategy. The first thing a candidate needs to bear in mind is that the examination is designed to evaluate certain qualities like a sharp memory and basic retention power. There are ways to increase one's memory like preparing charts. One gets confused when faced with mind boggling facts and figures. Important facts and figures can be simplified and represented on charts and they can arranged in the form of tables or graphs. Another thing to remember is to make short and brief notes on each topic so that the entire syllabus can be revised a few days before the exam.It is better to use diagrams and link words which make it easier to understand difficult concepts. One more technique to help in retaining information is the use of abbreviations. Since the syllabus involves exhaustive information abbreviations help you to remember it better. It is a good method to remember dates, facts and figures in a picture format and to break up complex names and places into smaller and simpler words. The last and the most important technique is to do regular revision. This helps in retaining the maximum information. A separate time slot should be given to doing not only regular but multiple revisions like daily, weekly, monthly etc.Many candidates make a mistake of overloading themselves with lots of information and end up remembering nothing. One should be able to differentiate between relevant and irrelevant information. Since the preliminary exam is an elimination round the candidate should also learn to focus only on the information needed and filter out the rest. It helps to discuss with friends and teachers but the most reliable way is to solve past years question papers. One should also keep abreast with current events and information related to them. For best ias exam coaching in ahmedabad- join CHAHAL ACADEMY.An important thing to remember is that for this exam it is not just enough to remember information but to understand the concepts as well. Instead of memorizing facts and figures, conceptual clarity in needed. The questions asked are of 10+2 level. Therefore emphasis has to be on conceptual clarity. Any concept has to be understood with its origin, merits and de-merits, then it needs to be analyzed with other relevant topics and lastly it has to be correlated with the events that have taken place during the year.The preliminary exam requires candidates who have the acumen and the ability to choose the right option from four given options. This needs a proper method of elimination. It is a good idea to go through previous years and model question papers and solve as many of them as possible. Taking a mock test of a certain number of G.S. questions and mathematics and general ability questions would be a good practice work and help to pick out the most appropriate option.Each prelims paper is for two hours but a lot of time is wasted in signing attendance sheets etc, therefore there is a lot of need for effective Time Management is needed for the actual exam. It is not enough to know the right answer but it has to be marked correctly on the answer sheet. Speed and Accuracy are important, so solving model question papers on a regular basis would be a great help.A good presence of mind is needed to eliminate the least appropriate options and arrive at the right one. However beware of negative marking so it is better to mark only sure shot answers than making guesses.Throughout the preparation for the prelims exam, it is important to remember that any topic or concept should not be studied in isolation. It is better to understand and establish a correlation between related concepts from other subjects and current events and happenings.Even with all this preparation, it is necessary to have a positive attitude and a great amount of will power to succeed to achieve your goal that of getting through the civil services examination with flying colors!

First, it will provide the data which is useful in prelims and mains. Secondly, it is also helpful in forming reasoned opinion which will help in ESSAY as well as questions in mains exam. Reading newspaper daily is a habit but reading it for the preparation point of view is an art. Having established the importance of newspapers, few logical question follow after that like which newspaper to follow and what to read in the newspaper. The Hindu is most prescribed newspaper for civil service aspirants. Depending on time and optional paper one more newspaper can be followed like Indian express, Economic times etc.In order to best judge what to read in the newspaper look at last few years question papers and check what are the kind of questions asked in the exam. There is no absolute rule about what to read in newspapers but issues like mentioned below necessarily be followed properly1. Government policies, administrative reforms etc.2. Various bills3. Election related items4. International issues related to or important for India, Bilateral visits of prime ministers and presidents, Treaties signed, Imp. news of IMF/ WORLD BANK etc. , Major issues like Ukraine crisis etc.5. News related to economy in Government, SEBI, RBI, Planning Commission etc. And various important numbers like IIP, GDP, CPI etc.Page wise necessarily read News in Front page, Economy page, International affairs page, Science and technology page and Editorials page.

If read properly newspaper can help candidate push towards it's goal of clearing the exam.Consistency in studies is basic requirement for success in UPSC. Remember small steps daily makes a huge difference. Try to design a proper strategy for exam, based on your strength and weaknesses. Strategy should include covering full syllabus and multiple revision as well.Try to develop a timeline for entire syllabus, meaning you should design how much time you would take for particular topic. That will help you in judging yourself, that how far behind you are in your plan.As mentioned in UPSC notification “The questions are likely to test the candidate’s basic understanding of all relevant issues, and ability to analyze, and take a view on conflicting socio- economic goals, objectives and demands. The candidates must give relevant, meaningful and succinct answers.” So question will test basic understanding only and not deep knowledge. But in order to test all relevant issue they might ask questions which are multi-dimensional. Try to finish every topic from one good source multiple times, rather than reading multiple sources and not finding the time for revision.All these were Importance of Newspapers for ias exam preparation and must be followed. At chahal academy, which is the best ias exam preparation institute in ahmedabad, daily analysis of newspapers is being done, especially editorial pages of The Hindu and The Indian Express.
