UPSC overview

Civil Services is the backbone of Indian governance which constitutes all Ministries of their departments. One of the most challenging competitive exams in India if not the entire world, it is conducted by Union Public Service Commission. The prestige, power, charm, and responsibility that comes along with top jobs like IAS, IFS, IPS etc are a definite reason for anyone to choose Civil services as a career option. Azhagiyakadan IAS Academy, Anna Salai Chennai is proud to help aspirants from the Muslim Minority, to achieve their goals in these esteemed services.

Introduction:

The IAS and Allied Services examinations conducted by the UPSC are the most prestigious examinations in the country. Those who finally qualify, become Collectors, Commissioners etc. after a few years of service. Even Doctors, Engineers, MBAs, C.As, etc. often prepare for these examinations. Generally candidates with no technical degrees emerge toppers. At the same time, bright students who have succeeded in doing well at their medical or engineering institutes fail to get to the top of the list of successful candidates. Thus the Civil Service Examination (CSE) has very little to do with the student’s intelligence. It is rather a test of his or her perseverance, very hard work and leadership skills. Nobody should undertake any other course or employment while preparing for the CSE, otherwise surely, he will fail.

Stages of Examination:

This examination has got a three-stage recruiting process: 1. Preliminary Examination (in common parlance known as Prelims),  2. Main Examination and  3. Personal Interview.  A candidate has to pass all these three stages in one single series. If he fails at any stage, he has to repeat the process the next year. How much attention and sincerity it requires from the very beginning becomes clear from the fact that around 5 to 6 lakhs candidates appear for the Prelim of which only 4,000 to 5,000 qualify for the next round i.e. the Main Examination. Of these selected candidates, about 1,000 to 1,200 are selected for the third and final stage i.e. the Interview. After all these three stages, only about 800 candidates are ultimately selected for different services.

Format for Civil Services exams
