INTERVIEW GUIDANCE

NEXT IAS conducts an exclusive course known as “Interview Guidance” under the guidance of 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. NEXT IAS also conducts “Interview Guidance” for Indian Forest Services (IFoS) simultaneously.

Once you have cleared the UPSC CSE Preliminary and the Main Examination, the third and the final stage is the “Personality Test”, also commonly referred to as the Interview. The questions that are asked in the interview are on matters of General Sciences, latest issues and might ask for personal opinion on specific topics

The Interview Guidance board comprises highly competent and unbiased members, reputed subject matter and psychological experts headed by a Chairman, to assess the personnel suitability of the candidate for a career in public services. The interview intends to judge the mental caliber 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, balance of judgement, variety and depth of interests, ability for social cohesion, leadership and intellectual and moral integrity.

The programme emphasizes on inculcating all the necessary qualities that are needed as a Civil Servant. Our panel members help to find out the weaknesses and psychological setbacks of the aspirants. Various dedicated 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 assess and understand their weakness and work on it before the actual interview.
