[GYAN] 13 Things for your Civils Interview Preparation + Sample Transcript

How will you use your Industrial Production Engineering” knowledge in administration?”

“Sir, as an engineer in industrial production, our job is to increase the efficiency of the system to near 100%.” Similarly in administration, I will use my expertise to improve the administrative efficacy to 100%”

I was preparing same answer in my mind for over some days now . Think it will benefit if I would call the bluff and admit that technical education wont be much of use in day to day job of civil services 

I am so glad. You can actually say a few good things. I would recommend you to do some group mocks with friends . It works a lot. Day before yesterday I was sitting with about 7-8 people in a group mock, and the value addition was substantial.


Remember nothing beats a good peer discussion. All you need is patience to listen.

To highlight the importance of group discussion, we had one group post apocalypse ( read COVID and lockdown ) in online mode via teams call and from 8-10 people in the group , we had Sanjita , Amit, Divyshakti, and Chandrima all getting some ranks like 10, 79, 82 etc types ( bad with numbers )


So those of you looking for interview prep, form groups first.

How do I take your advice and form a group for interview prep? I have been preparing alone till mains remotely and personally do not know any fellow aspirant.

Well you have me for the group then!

Even if we can have 1-2 group sessions, the alignmen will be complete.

Earlier, we used to have a google form for recording the data and then we used to email them for a session together.

Now with Covid, we can always have this online, so you can be "remote" and still participate. I would just like to have things on the forum itself ( instead of telegram - which i tried two years back - because after all the effort, it has no archiva value. Meaning all the hard work done gets lost when the group kinda dissolved.

At least on the forum, the threads are archived for eternity :)
