Objective of Mock Interview Session
Civil Services Interview is not intended to be a test of specialized knowledge as this is already tested in the written examination. It is rather a test of personality, mental alertness, clear and logical exposition, balance of judgment, power of assimilation, variety and depth of interest, ability of social cohesion and leadership, and intellectual and moral integrity. The technique that is being followed at UPSC is not strict cross-examination but direct and purposive conversation, which will reveal the mental qualities of the candidates.
The focus of Interview Guidance Program at Chrome IAS Academy is exactly that. Our mock interview panel consists of highly experienced retired bureaucrats, reputed educationists and psychological experts. Besides the knowledge aspects in relation to one’s bio-data, we focus on refining candidates’ approach, attitude and aptitude to excel in UPSC’s personality test. The program emphasizes on inculcating all the necessary bureaucratic traits in the candidate’s personality that’s required to perform decently in the Civil Services Interview.

Approach & Strategy of Mock Interview Session
In Mock Interview Session at Chrome IAS Academy, candidate’s personality will be assessed and scored over stringent parameters in a closely simulated UPSC interview environment. One is expected to approach this interview with same seriousness as that of actual UPSC interview. After the interview, our panel of senior bureaucrats, educationists and psychologist will be sharing their observations about the candidate and suggestions for further improvement. If the candidate has any doubt or further queries, he/she can discuss with them.
This One-to-One feedback session by our Mock Interview Panel helps candidates to generate questions based on the Detailed Application Form which will be analyzed further to ensure that no area is left out. This session guides students to figure out ways to answer questions on DAF related areas such as hobbies and interests, extra-curricular activities, educational achievements, prizes/medals and scholarships, service preference, previous selections etc. Furthermore, this session also helps students frame their replies on other General interview related aspects e.g. convincing reasons to explain gap in study, quitting previous job etc. All this exercise equips candidates with techniques to face interview, do’s and don’ts of interview, how to answer situation based questions and helps one to develop an analytical and pragmatic approach.
