The entire preparation of months and years and a series of written exams comes down to the interview day. Though the Interview or personality test is the last hurdle of the IAS recruitment process, it is the most crucial one and often crashes the dreams of many. These Interviews are taken up by a panel of competent and unbiased bureaucrats who observe and record every minute detail of the candidates.
The interviewing panel does not check the knowledge of the candidates. Rather it focuses on their intellectual ability, mental caliber, and also on their social traits and interests. The interviewers pay close attention to the logical decision-making skills of the aspirants and check their ethical and moral standards as well as their emotional stability, communication skills, body language, etc.
Though every IAS aspirant remains well-equipped with worldly knowledge, they often miss out on the nuances and details required. And that is perhaps the reason why they stumble on the day of the interview and often get knocked out.
To cover this lag, Sriram IAS offers Interview Guidance Program for IAS aspirants after they successfully qualify the written Mains. The Director of the IAS institute takes up exhaustive personal sittings of 4-5 students every day and discusses topical issues. These sessions finetune the students’ preparation according to the requirements of the Interview through personalized question-answer sessions.
The coaching also organizes one mock interview for the aspirants which is open to all. These sessions are free for the enrolled students while the others need to pay a nominal charge of 500/-
