A challenging, but rewarding Civil Services

The Civil Services Examination (CSE) is a nationwide competitive exam conducted by the Union Public Service Commission for recruitment to various administrative posts of the central government including the IAS, IFS, IPS and IRS among others.The examination is the toughest one in India with success rate of 0.1%-0.3% with more than 9 lakh applicants per year. CSE has the least success ratio in the entire world as only 0.03% of the total candidates get into the prestigious civil services in India.

The competitive exam is conducted in two phases - the Preliminary exam consisting of two objective-type papers (General Studies and Aptitude Test); and the Main exam consisting of 9 papers of conventional (essay) type followed by the Interview. The entire process from the notification of the Preliminary examination to declaration of the final results takes roughly one year.

Examination process

The CSE is considered to be one of the most difficult and competitive examinations in India. On an average, 9 to 10 lakh candidates apply every year for the examination, once the UPSC announces the schedule of Prelims exam. But the number of candidates actually appearing for the written exam is roughly 4,51,602 lakh each year. However, the challenging aspect of this exam is that aspirants must complete a three-stage process that requires in depth knowledge, rational thinking, drafting skills, creativity, language competency, and a 'can do' and enterprising personality.

Stage I:Preliminary examination which is a qualifying test held in August every year. Notification for this is published in May. Results are published in mid-October.

Stage II:Main examination is mostly held in December every year. Results are usually published in the second week of March.

Stage III:Personality Test (Interview) which is the final test and is held in April/May every year.

Final results are usually announced in the month of May every year.
The training programme for the selected candidates usually commences on first Monday of September every year.

Preliminary Exam

The pattern of the Preliminary exam up to 2010 was based on the recommendations of the Kothari Commission (1979). It included two examinations, one on General Studies worth 150 marks, and the second on one of 23 optional subjects worth 300 marks. Until 2011, when it was revamped, the Preliminary pattern was sustained with only minor changes once every 10-15 years.

It is possible that in the coming years there can be some more changes in the format. The Preliminary exam is popularly known as the Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT) though officially it is still called General Studies Paper-1 and Paper-2. From 2011 onwards, the Prelims exam intends to focus on analytical abilities and understanding rather than the ability to memorise.

The new pattern includes two papers of two hours duration and 200 marks each. Both papers have multiple choice objective type questions only.

They are as under:
Paper I tests the candidate's knowledge on current events, Indian history, world geography, Indian policy and governance, economic and social development, environmental ecology, biodiversity, climate change and general science. To qualify minimum marks should be 30. Paper II tests the candidates' skills in comprehension, interpersonal skills, communication, logical reasoning, analytical ability, decision making, problem solving, basic numeracy, data interpretation, English language comprehension skills and mental ability.

To qualify minimum marks should be 70.

In August 2014, the Centre announced that English marks in CSAT-II will not be included for gradation or merit and 2011 candidates may get a second chance to appear for the test next year. In May 2015, the Centre announced that Paper II of Prelims exam (CSAT) will be of qualifying in nature. That is, it would not be graded for eligibility in Mains exam and a candidate needs to secure at least 33% marks in order to be eligible for graded on basis of marks of Paper I in Preliminary exam. These two General Studies papers are qualifying in nature and are not used for ranking. Hence their marks are not added to the total. Candidates who fail these papers as per the Commission's standards are not eligible for the Mains.

Mains Exam

The CSE Mains consists of a written examination and an interview. The written examination consists of nine papers, two qualifying and seven ranking in nature. The range of questions may vary from just one mark to sixty marks, twenty words to 600 words answers. Candidates who pass qualifying papers are ranked according to marks and the selected number of candidates is called for interview or a personality test at the Commission's discretion. According to the new marks allocations in CSE 2013, there were some changes made in the examination according to the suggestion of the Professor Arun. S. Nigavekar Committee. However, after some controversy, the qualifying papers for Indian languages and English were restored to the examination.


Officially this last stage of CSE is called the "Personality Test", the objective 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 evaluate the mental calibre and the general attitude of a candidate.In broad terms, this is really an assessment of not only a candidate's intellectual qualities, but also social traits and interest in current affairs. Some of the qualities to be judged are mental alertness, critical powers of assimilation, clear and logical exposition, balance of judgement, variety and depth of interest, ability for social cohesion and leadership, and 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 that is intended to reveal the mental qualities of the candidate. The interview is not intended to be a test either of the specialised or general knowledge of the candidate, which has been already tested through written papers. Candidates are expected to have taken an interest not only in their special subjects of academic study, but also in the events which are happening around them. A wide knowledge on events and happenings both within and outside their own state or country as well as contemporary thoughts and subjects must be the key pursuit of the civil services aspirants.

TNPSC - a brief history

Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC) has the unique distinction of being the successor of the first provincial PSC in the form of the Madras Service Commission set up under the British colonial rule. Madras Service Commission came into being under an Act of the Madras legislature in 1929 in order to recruit qualified persons to the provincial and subordinate services. In 1936, the name was modified as "The Madras Public Service Commission".

The government recruitment body came to be known as Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission from 1970. The provisions relating to the Public Service Commissions are contained in Articles 315 to 323 of the Constitution of India, Chapter II of Part XIV.

Organisation heritage

It was left mostly to the discretion of provincial governments to recruit and exercise control over their services as deemed necessary. As a result of the discretionary powers left to British provinces, the government of Madras and Punjab proposed to set up their own Public Service Commissions. The Madras Service Commission thus came into being under an Act of the Madras Legislature in 1929.

Madras Presidency had the unique honour of being the first among Indian states to establish their own Service Commission. The Madras Service Commission started with three members including the chairman. After re-organisation of states in 1957, a number of state-level commissions were constituted. The Madras Service Commission became Madras Public Service Commission with headquarters in Madras in 1957. During 1970, when the name of the state was changed into Tamil Nadu, the Madras Public Service Commission also accordingly got renamed as the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC).

TNPSC departments

Articles 316 to 319 deal with the structure of State Public Service Commissions. TNPSC is headed by the chairman and comprises 14 other members, all appointed by the Governor in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution. As of 20 Oct 2014, the TNPSC consists of a chairman and 5 members. The departments of TNPSC are headed by a joint secretary, deputy secretaries and under secretaries consisting of sections headed by section officers and other subordinate staff. In a G.O. dated 9 August 2011, the TN government took into consideration the definition given in the Sub-section (C) of Section (2) of Chapter (1) relating to 'Public Servant' under Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988. Following which they have decided to bring the chairman and members of the TNPSC under the purview of the State Vigilance Commission and Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption.

Diverse functions

The TNPSC has to discharge the duties and functions has specified in the Article 320 of the Constitution of India. The Commission is required to advise the state government on all matters relating to framing of recruitment rules, principles in making appointments, promotions and transfers from one service to another service and in respect of disciplinary matters affecting officials. Most importantly, TNPSC has the responsibility of conducting the examinations for the selection of candidates under direct recruitment to the state, subordinate and ministerial services.

TNPSC holds departmental exams for government officials and also conducts the examination on behalf of the Union government, Ministry of Defence for the admission to the school run by the Rashtriya Indian Military College in Dehra Dun. The secretary to TNPSC holds responsibility of ensuring implementation of its various decisions, besides handling day-to-day administration, departmental promotion committees and oral tests for recruitment, among others. The Controller of Exams is responsible for notifying and conducting recruitment and departmental examinations.
