The interview/personality test isn’t intended to be a test either of the specialized or general knowledge of the candidates which has been already tested through their written papers.

Real UPSC Interview preparation starts with filling out DAF II.

Those who have qualified for the UPSC Mains 2023 must join the Civilsdaily Interview Program. You can discuss DAF, interview topics, and other aspects with toppers, in-service officers, and senior mentors and faculties.

For those who couldn’t find their name on the list, it is a time for introspection and reflection.

Let us discuss and uncover the issues that you are facing in your preparation, uncover those critical gaps and find ways to improve.

UPSC Mains 2023 was unlike the last few years’ Mains. With very few questions focussing on the conceptual-analytical aspect, it was factual and high on GS static topics. It might seem easy but to contain the answer within 2-3 pages was a tough task in the exam hall. UPSC seemingly moved backward to the late 90s Mains era when such static topic-based questions were asked predominantly.

For Mains 2023 aspirants, Sajal sir’s suggestion would be to focus on value addition on GS topics rather than content addition; practice intensively Mains Previous Year questions; bring creativity & innovation in your answers because even though questions are easy but answers needn’t be simple; collecting and using case studies, examples, etc. to make your answers stand apart.

Fill out the Samanvaya form below and get on a 1-to-1 call with senior IAS faculty and mentors. We will discuss preparation issues like the timetable, strategy, planning, sources, etc, and get them resolved.
