Significance of Interview (Personality Test)

admin Last Update on: 02 Mar 2018

In last few years result, significance of Interview marks was clearly visible. With the changes that came in effect from Civil Services (Main) Examination 2013, marks secured in Interview have greater impact and the significance of Interview marks is clearly visible in final results.

Congratulations to 2568 candidates who have made it to Interview Stage in Civil Services Examination 2017.

The last stage of examination - Interview of written qualified candidates of Civil Services (Main) Examination 2017 is scheduled to commence from February 19, 2018 and the fate of lucky ones is going to be decided as the 275 marks attached to 'Interview' can play a crucial role in final selection/getting higher ranks.

‘Aptitude is indicator of your chances of success in Civil Services Examination’. This statement holds water in every situation and circumstances and some experts even suggest that when you make up your mind to appear in ‘Civil Services Examination’, first thing you need to think about is your Personality which is tested through third and last stage of the examination process i.e. interview.

Interview, the last stage of Civil Services Examination is not a mere awareness test; but, is more of a psychological assessment.

These candidates have been preparing for Civil Services Examination for quite some time and must have dreamed and would have been longing to appear in Interview.

In last few years result, significance of Interview marks was clearly visible. Now, with changes in Civil Services (Main) Examination 2013, marks secured in Interview have greater impact as the candidates have not been able to score high marks in Main (written) examination.

The Personality test (Interview) has only 275 marks attached to it but, significance of marks obtained in Interview plays a vital role.

Comparing written examination, fetching high marks in Interview is easier; just to quote, in recent Civil Services Examination many a candidates have scored 200 plus marks in Interview that helped most of them in realising their dreams.

Worth of Interview marks becomes prominent in current environment when written cut-off is low. High scores in Interview can play its role in your final selection and more importantly in securing the place up in the merit-list so that you can be sure of getting the post of your first choice.
