Dear Deepti,

There's a three-step examination process for civil service examination. The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) first conducts an objective type preliminary examination for screening candidates. The Preliminary Examination: There are two papers for the preliminary round. There is one on general studies and another on an optional subject. General study covers history, geography, economics and so on. The question papers have objective type multiple choice questions. The general studies paper carries 150 marks. The syllabus for the optional subject is the same as that for graduation level. The question paper for the optional subject carries 300 marks. The optional subject for the second paper can be chosen from the following : Agriculture , Animal Husbandry and veterinary science ,Botany,Chemistry, Civil Engineering,Commerce, Economics, Electrical Engineering,Geography, Geology,Indian History ,Law, Mathematics,Mechanical Engineering ,Philosophy ,Physics, Political Science,Psychology,Public Administration, Sociology ,Statistics,Zoology.

The Main Examination: The preliminary round is basically a screening round. The marks obtained are not counted for in the final stage of the examination. For candidates who clear the preliminary round, there is the main round. The second stage is the main examination that includes written tests and an interview. This stage has nine papers of which two are qualificatory in nature. Candidates must choose two optional subjects of their choice, as compared to one in the Preliminary stage. There are two papers of General Studies, Optional 1 and Optional 2 and one Essay paper.

The total marks secured in both the written tests and the personal interview determine the rank of a candidate. The Interview This is the last hurdle to be cleared. The interview carries 250 marks and there are no stipulated minimum qualifying marks. The main aim of the interview is to assess a candidate's overall personality. The interview is conducted by a board. The board is fully informed about the candidate and they base their questions on a record of the candidate's career, which is provided to them. The aspects that are generally looked into are the candidate's grasp of academics and general awareness as in current affairs, social issues, etc. It is basically a test of the potential of a candidate. The board tries to assess whether he or she can rise to the demands of the job of a Civil Servant.

So these are the full information of the entrance examination for IAS.Now according to this prepare yourself for the examination.

All the Best
