    Exam Pattern : The examination is held in three main stages – preliminary, mains and interview, and the basic structure is as follows:

    1. Preliminary Exam : The Preliminary and qualifying examination is generally in the month of June every year, with its results being announced latest by that August.

    Initially, students apply for the Preliminary Examination only, with those candidates qualifying for admission to the Mains having to apply separately for the Mains, in a detailed Application Form supplied to them.

    2. Mains : Candidates clearing the prelims qualify to take the mains which are held around September every year. Mains are descriptive and the candidate has to appear for English and needs to choose one regional language and also appear in four papers in general studies, one essay and two optional papers. Each of these papers apart from the languages, is of 250 marks and together they total 1750 marks. The marks in English and the chosen regional language are for the purpose of qualifying and are not be counted towards the total score.

    3. Interview : Candidates successful qualifying in the UPSC are invited to the interview next March. Personality Assessment is carried out at this stage wherein the interviewer evaluates verbal communication skills, articulation, intellectual capabilities amongst other criteria. The interview is for 275 marks and the final selection and placement of the successful candidates is dependent on their ranking based on theie combined performance represented by the total of their marks in the Mains and the Interview.
