The IAS exam is conducted on an annual basis by the Union Public Services Commission and is considered to be one of the most prestigious exams in India. The exam that is generally termed as the “Mother of all Examinations” is taken by lakhs of aspirants across the country to get into the Central and the All India Services such as the IAS, IFS, IPS, IFoS etc.
The exam comprises of three levels of tests namely:
- Civil Services Prelims Exam: This is the first level of the examination and is qualifying in nature.
- Civil Services Mains Exam: Only those who qualify the Prelims exam are called for the Mains exam by the UPSC. The Mains Exam comprises of four general studies paper, two language papers of qualifying nature, an essay paper and two optional papers.
- Personality Test: Those candidates who manage to clear the Mains examination cut off will be summoned by the commission to take the Personality Test.
The commission will then release the final list of the candidates recommended to be recruited for various services of their preference based on the composite scores of the mains examination and the personality test.
Though lakhs of students take up the exam, less than a thousand qualify for the services. The competition is tough and only right guidance, consistency and hard work can sail an aspirant through this examination.
