INTERVIEW PREPARATION FOR IAS : PART II :-

THE MOTHER OF ALL INTERVIEWS : PART II :-


16. PREPARE YOUR STATE & DISTRICT THOROUGHLY.FOR THIS TAKE HELP FROM YOUR STATE GOVT WEBSITE, ITS SOCIAL WELFARE, INDUSTRIES DEPT, STATISTICS ABOUT YOUR STATE, DISTRICT, TOURISM SECTOR, SOCIAL SECTOR SCHEMES IN YOUR STATE, DISTRICT ETC.


17. YOUR PREPARATION FOR INTERVIEW SHOULD START FROM JANUARY 1 ONWARDS SO THAT YOU GET 3 MONTHS TIME TO PREPARE.

18. READ SOME LATEST GOOD NOVELS OR NON-FICTION BOOKS.


19. REGULARLY LISTEN TO ALL INDIA RADIO NEWS AND DISCUSSIONS AT 2-2.30 PM & 9-10 PM.

20. YOU CAN DOWNLOAD ALL DISCUSSIONS IN ALL INDIA RADIO & BBC DOCUMENTARIES FROM INTERNET & LISTEN TO THEM AGAIN & AGAIN.AFTER LISTENING TO ONE DISCUSSION 2 TIMES TRY TO SPEAK 2-3 MINUTES ON THE SAME TOPIC & TRY TO EMULATE THE WAY THE GUESTS SPOKE IN THAT TALK.THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR SPOKEN ENGLISH & EXPRESSIVE POWER.


21. ANSWER EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAVE ASKED.DON’T BEAT AROUND THE BUSH.DON’T SAY SOMETHING WHICH THEY HAVE NOT ASKED.BE PRECISE & TO THE POINT.SPEAK THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT FIRST & THEN TELL OTHER POINTS IN THE ORDER OF THEIR IMPORTANCE.

22. WHEN ONE VIEW BASED QUESTION IS ASKED TAKE 5-10 SECONDS & THEN ANSWER ELABORATELY FOR 2-3 MINUTES.IF THEY STOP YOU INBETWEEN,THEN STOP & LISTEN TO WHAT THEY ARE SAYING.BE A GOOD LISTENER.


23. UNLESS YOUR STAND IS PROVED WRONG, STICK TO YOUR STAND.DON’T CHANGE YOUR VIEW JUST BECAUSE THEY COUNTER-QUESTIONED YOU.

24. WHEN THEY LAUGH OR SAY THAT YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS TOPIC … REMAIN COOL, STICK TO YOUR POINT.THEY ARE JUST TESTING YOUR CONFIDENCE LEVEL & SEEING HOW YOU REACT TO SUCH A SITUATION.


25. THEY ARE BASICALLY TESTING YOUR ATTITUDE, CONFIDENCE LEVEL, CHARACTER AND PERSONALITY.SO GIVE MORE EMPHASIS TO VIEW-BASED QUESTIONS.

26. MOREOVER, HELD YOUR HEAD HIGH & BE CONFIDENT THROUGHOUT THE INTERVIEW.

27. WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW THE ANSWER THEN CONFIDENTLY SAY : “SORRY SIR,I DO NOT KNOW THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION”.THERE IS NOTHING TO BE AFRAID OF OR FEEL EMBARASSED …

28. IF YOU WANT COACHING THEN GO FOR SAMKALP & VAJIRAM & RAVI. BUT FOR INTERVIEW PREPARATION 2-3 LIKE-MINDED & EQUALLY MOTIVATED FRIENDS CAN DO WONDERS.THEY CAN POINT OUT YOUR WEAKNESSES & CAN ASK YOU VARIETY OF QUESTIONS ... SO GROUP DISCUSSION WITH FRIENDS IS BETTER.IF YOU ARE GIVING INTERVIEW FOR THE FIRST TIME,THEN TAKE HELP OF COACHING.

29. THAY CAN ASK MANY INNOVATIVE QUESTIONS LIKE PROMINENT PERSONALITIES BORN ON YOUR DATE OF BIRTH,HOW YOU RESEMBLE THEM ETC. SO BE PREPARED FOR SURPRISES.BUT TACKLE THEM WITH FULL CONFIDENCE ...

30. YOUR GRADUATION SUBJECT & YOUR OPTIONALS.REFRESH YOUR MEMORY.JUST BROWSE THROUGH IMPORTANT TERMS WHICH A LAYMAN CAN ASK YOU ABOUT THESE SUBJECTS.FOR EX,IF YOUR SUBJECT IS PSYCHOLOGY THEY MAY ASK : WHAT IS PSYCHOANALYSIS ? CAN YOU PERFORM PSYCHOANALYSIS ON SONIA GANDHI ? SHE SEEMS MYSTERIOUS.WAS FREUD AN ECCENTRIC GENIUS ? HOW CAN PSYCHOLOGY HELP YOU IN YOUR CARRER AS AN ADMINISTRATOR ? PSYCHOLOGY IS "DEFINITELY" NOT A SCIENCE ... WHAT IS YOUR VIEW ON IT ? TELL US ABOUT DIFFERENT BRANCHES OF PSYCHOLOGY & WHICH BRANCH YOU LIKE THE MOST & WHY ?YOU GRADUATED IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING(SAY) BUT YOU TOOK PSYCHOLOGY & PUB AD AS OPTIONALS ... WHY ? ETC.

THE QUESTIONS THAT CAN BE GENERATED ARE ENDLESS.THE MORE YOU THINK BEFORE-HAND THE BETTER PREPARED YOU ARE ... AS "FORTUNE FAVOURS THE PREPARED MIND".

BELIEVE THAT "LUCK IS JUST ANOTHER NAME FOR PURE HARDWORK ...

I THINK THIS GIVES ENOUGH INDICATION.IF ANY SPECIFIC QUERIES U CAN ASK …

ALL THE BEST ...

  4. Hi Pooja,

    it has no bearing on interviewer's mind.only go for those optionals which u have very high interest,they should be scoring & easy coaching & good quality material is available for them ... I graduated in Vety Sc but my optionals were Pub Ad & Psycho ... as i had high interest in them,that's why I got selected ...

    Take care.

    Bijay.

  10. hello sir,

  11. Hi Saumya,

    if you say I don't know,they simply move to next question.But u should be honest,at all costs.Suppose you have read about Joint Forest Management in 2 Articles in Frontline.If they ask how many articles on JFM u have read,then say 2-3 sir,i suppose.Don't say I have read 10 articles on it.Then you are inviting trouble.If you don't know ANYTHING on it,tell clearly ... sorry sir,i don't know the answer.

    Board members are 80-90 % of the time cordial.sometimes 10-20 % time,they are combative.So luck is 10-20 % in CSE Interview,which can't be eliminated & is not in our hands ... so ...

    WORK HARD AS IF NO PRAYER WILL HELP,PRAY AS IF NO HARD WORK WILL HELP.

    Regarding the other query,mains MAY change.So u can take GS & one Optional Coaching or only GS coaching.Don't take two optionals coaching,as they may ELIMINATE OPTIONALS ALTOGETHER from CSE framework. Coaching on GENERAL STUDIES from Vajiram will help anyway whatever be the pattern ...

    Take care.
