Interview Guidance Programme / Personality Test Training Program for CSE 2023

NEXT IAS will be conducting a comprehensive Personality Test Training Program for CSE 2022 under the guidance of Shri Bhim Sain Bassi (IPS Retd., Former Honourable member of UPSC), Mr. B. Singh (Ex. IES) CMD, MADE EASY Group, and a panel of experts as soon as the result of CSE Mains Examination is declared.

The Personality test, commonly referred to as the interview, is the third and final stage after Preliminary and Mains examination. The candidates get an opportunity to interact with the esteemed panel members of UPSC. The interview, that generally lasts for about 25-30 minutes consists of questions on the candidate’s Detailed Application Form (DAF), Opinions on latest issues, General Sciences, and the Board might even ask situation based questions.

The Interview Guidance board comprises of highly competent and unbiased members, reputed subject matter, and psychological experts headed by a Chairman, to assess the suitability of the candidate for a career in public services. The interview intends to judge the mental calibre of a candidate encompassing not only the intellectual capabilities but also the social traits and interest in current affairs. Some of the majorly judged qualities are mental alertness, critical powers of assimilation, clear and logical exposition, the balance of judgment, variety, depth of interests, the ability for social cohesion, leadership, and intellectual and moral integrity.

This Comprehensive Personality Test Training program emphasizes on inculcating all the necessary qualities that are needed as a Civil Servant. The program helps to refine the candidates’ attitude, knowledge and skills for excelling in the interview stage. Various dedicated classroom sessions are conducted to ensure the best possible preparation in all aspects of the examination. At the end of the sessions, 1-2 Mock Interviews are conducted. We also offer the facility of accessing video coverage of the Mock Interviews so that aspirants can self-evaluate their performance and ensure necessary improvements before the actual interview.
