UKPSC has conducted mains exam in first week of February(2016).They have disqualified nearly 750 candidates on various reason and nearly 790 candidates did not appeared in mains exam due to their own reason.so nearly 2000 candidates has written exam .Now there are no optional subject,only common papers.If you look at UKPSC ,they are not very busy now days and they are already delayed by one year from their schedule of exam with respect to PCS and we should not forget there are elections too in early 2017 and they have to advertise for new recruitment.So copy checking should be completed by march end or maximum by mid april and since there is no restriction on carrying on exam process by high court so  candidate can expect interview in may/june. 

What should be strategy before UKPSC MAINS RESULT…..

There are two group of candidates .Group1 who are preparing for UPSC and has good exposure for current affairs and bio data related questions  and Group2 who are preparing for UKPCS only and many of them have have written mains exam first time.Those who has appeared first time in mains exam and have not attended any interview,they have to do more homework.

The interview board of UK PSC mainly  focus on

  • Uttarakhand related issue
  • Indian polity
  • Economics and social issues and policies
  • Bio data

The Focus should be on followings…during this period

Identify Uttarakhand related issues like unemployment,poverty and development difficulties of mountain areas,education,social status of women, migration and their realistic solution and government effort.Potential of uttarakhand like tourism,hydro power,renewable energy,industry,food processing etc .Cultural and religious location and their importance and disasters in uttarakhand  should be prepared.

one can say candidate should prepare in depth what ever syllabus of uttarakhand is mentioned in UKPCS mains syllabus.They should think about the problems and find out their own solutions (innovative and implementable in time bound manner).This  part will contribute most to score high marks.if you prepared it very well,it will boost up your confidence.

Indian polity should be prepared from basic and dynamic point of view.you should revise the provisions and article in constitution and current affairs related to new bills ,their provision and their impact on common man.You should prepare their pros and cons.

– Optional Subjects, Subject of graduation : general questions of applied nature like how the subject or a concept helps in administration or in real life etc.

 

To give a full and clear insight of the Personality Test (Interview), UPSC explains and clarifies in detail.same is true in case of UKPSC also.This should be the guiding principles.

“The candidate will be interviewed by a Board who will have before them a record of his/her career. He/she will be asked questions on matters of general interest. The object of the interview is to assess the personal suitability of the candidate for a career in public service by a Board of competent and unbiased observers. The test is intended to judge the mental caliber of a candidate. In broad terms this is really an assessment of not only his/her intellectual qualities but also social traits and his/her interest in current affairs. Some of the qualities to be judged are mental alertness, critical powers of assimilation, clear and logical exposition, balance of judgment, variety and depth of interest, ability for social cohesion and leadership, intellectual and moral integrity”.

“The technique of the interview is not that of a strict cross-examination but of a natural, though directed and purposive conversation which is intended to reveal the mental qualities of the candidate.”

“The interview test is not intended to be a test either of the specialised or general knowledge of the candidates which has been already tested through their written papers. Candidates are expected to have taken an intelligent interest not only in their special subjects of academic study but also in the events which are happening around them both within and outside their own state or country as well as in modern currents of thought and in new discoveries which should rouse the curiosity of well educated youth.”

To rule out any possible ambiguity or misconception about its objective, it even lists out following mental qualities to be assessed to finally judge your suitability as a person :

Mental alertness :Means presence of mind, confidence and mental composer.

Critical powers of assimilation: To assimilate means to understand or take in fully. Grasp many dimensions of an issue.
Clear and logical exposition: clarity of thoughts and expression.
Balance of judgment: objectivity and optimism. No cynics needed.
Variety and depth of interest: hobbies and passions.
Intellectual and moral integrity: A synthesis of morality and intellect.
Ability for social cohesion and leadership : Empathy to social problems and weaker sections.

– Order of preferences for services : justification for the same, especially when it is unusual. E.g. why IPS and not IAS or IFS? (In case of UKPCS like SDM,DSP,etc).

 

SAMVEG IAS will start interview guidance classes within a week of UKPCS mains result.This will include 5 days classroom classes related to current affairs , uttarakhand,economy,polity and bio data and two personal sitting and two mock interview .
