The competitive examination comprises two successive stages :

  • (i) Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination (Objective Type) for the selection of candidates for Main Examination; and
  • (ii) Civil Services (Main) Examination (Written and Interview) for the selection of candidates for the various Services and posts.

The Preliminary Examination:

Civil Services Prelims comprises two compulsory papers of 200 marks each. Both question papers will have objective type questions. The papers will have negative marking for wrong answers (one third marks are deducted for every wrong answer). The question papers will be set both in Hindi and English. However, questions relating to English Language will not be provided with Hindi translation. Each paper will be of two hours' duration. Both papers are held on the same day. The purpose of this examination is to shortlist the dedicated candidates and to eliminate those candidates who take the CSE casually. Although the marks of the Prelimsdo not count for the selection, it is the door to appear in the Mains.

C.S. Main Examination:

The main examination will consist of 9 papers of conventional Essay Type in the subjects mentioned below, out of which two papers will be of qualifying nature. Candidates who obtain minimum qualifying marks in the written part of the Main Examination as may be fixed by the Commission at their discretion, shall be summoned by them for an Interview -cum Personality Test. The number of candidates to be called for interview will be about twice the number of vacancies to be filled. The interview will carry 275 marks (with nominimum qualifying marks). Marks obtained in all the compulsory paper (Paper I to Paper VII) and marks obtained in Interview/Personality Test will be counted for ranking. Candidates will be allotted various services keeping in view their ranks in the Examination and the preferences expressed by them for the various services and posts.
