Q. Is it true that the marks secured in the interview affects the overall ranking of the candidates?
Arpita Shukla, Bhopal, MP
Answer: Yes, the marks secured in the IAS interview affects the overall ranking of the candidates. Although, the written part of Civil Services (Exams) carries 2000 marks, much more than the Personality test which is of only 300 marks. In spite of the candidate doing quite well in the written test his overall ranking gets affected if he doesn’t do well in the interview. Therefore, one should strike a balance between the written test and the personality test to get the desired ranking.
