Q. What is the time-duration for the IAS interview?
Mohammad Dabeer, Muradabad, UP
Answer: It is approximately 45 minutes but can stretch sometimes to 1 hour also. It depends upon the nature of questions and the way the candidate answers. Civil Services interview is not focused only on the knowledge of the candidate which is already tested through the written test. It wants to test the administrative aptitude in the candidate. It examines the presentation style and the manner in which the candidate addresses the questions. During the Interview, the candidates are advised to maintain their cool even under pressure.
