composition of ukpsc in april 2019


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. in case of UKPCS like SDM,DSP,etc).



we hope you will take a well informed decision .even if you are doing /taking some guidance from anywhere still you can call us for any help.

Thank you
