    The Civil Service Examination has a complicated format! The complete exam stretches over a period of one year! So, before you go ahead, let us first try to understand the “format” of the exam.
    First of all, in the month of May or June there are the “Preliminary examinations”. Now, in this examination, there are two papers. The papers are on:
    1. General Studies (150 marks)
    2. Some optional subject (300 marks)
    This exam is just to get you to the next round of the “main exam”. This is just to short list candidates. The score you get here is NOT added to your final score.
    Now, you are probably wondering what “general studies” and “some optional subject” means, so let us clear that up!

    It is really great that you want to enter Civil service. UPSC conducts civil service to select officers for IAS, IPS, IFS, IRS, etc. There are three stages in this exam. The first one is CSAT. It will be objective and will have aptitude oriented questions. Once you clear CSAT you have appear for Mains exam. You can select the subject from the UPSC site. There will be a final interview for candidates who clear the main exam. You will have to undergo training for selected candidates before they are posted.
