Dear Suzane,

I guess, it would be very hard for any one to predict success, especially more so in Competitive Examination. However, I was certainly hopeful that I should be able to pass the exam, and when I passed, I was hopeful to get one of my first three preference. But as I said, I was 'hopeful' and in no way certain about it.

CSS for anyone, who is serious about it, is an ultimate career achievement, and so is it for me. I wouldn't be ashamed to say that I waited two years for this time to feel this happy.

I would not like to describe my attempt that way. I did give in my best effort to prepare for the written too, but owing to a couple of serious structural mistakes (mentioned in one of my other posts where I have detailed the DMC), I got the hit in written.

Having said that, indeed I took the interview seriously.

1. In your opinion, what do you think, what do the Panel look for in the candidate?
In my very own personal opinion (again, others might hold a different viewpoint), your knowledge has already been tested at the written stage which has a 4/5th weightage in the 1500 total marks. At the interview stage, the Viva pannel as well as the Psychologists are looking at the overall personality outlook of the candidate, his/her mannerism, to an extent his/her general understanding of national and world affairs, his/her way of conveying this knowledge, his/her argumentative style and most importantly his/her approach towards things, life and Civil Services. It is around these aspects that the entire three day interview process is structured.

2. Do we have to revise our optional Subjects for the interview? Did you?
Yes, you do have to revise the optional subjects. But this revision does not have to be really really in-depth as done at the time of written examination. You need to know the major concepts/events/incidents etc. Frankly the amount of questioning that takes place on the optional subjects varies from candidate to candidate. In my case, I was not asked about optionals at all (if I recall correctly). What I have figured out is that if a candidate has other things to talk about and the pannel has other things to ask him/her, then the questions on optionals are usually kept at a lower priority.

3. What kind of language, Tone, Stance (esp with regards to sensitive issues like Blasphemies, Army, Islam and other religions) should one adopt while giving Interview?
The language should always be mature, tone should be firm but polite. Stance should be moderate. This applies to interview with the pannel, interview with the Psychologists, group discussions and command tasks. There is no need to adopt hardliner attitudes. Your knowledge, facts and arguments should speak for themselves without your attitude and behaviour. Always give respect to what your colleagues say.

Dear Furqan,
I did not specifically prepare any notes apart from scribbling any special point occassionally. This was so for I was already studying the same subject in my Masters degree so the study there helped me here.

Dear Imran,

Joining or not joining an academy shall always be your own decision. Neither can I endorse any particular academy over the other. This shall not be wise of me.

One good thing about academies is that you get to have a guided tour of what CSS is about, what subjects to take, what books to study, and outlines of syllabi etc. Secondly, you also get to have a fair idea of who would be the people with whom you would be competing in the exam. Some people find academies quite useful, whereas others do not.
