Don’t take Interview in a light spirit Be serious about the process and questions. Give respect to the board members who take your personality test. Never underestimate the persons in the board. They have vast experience and knowledge. Don’t be too casual on serious questions. 6. Develop self-confidence Everyone loves people with self-confidence. If you are sure about your beliefs, answers or solutions, express them confidently. But at the same time ensure that you don’t go overboard. Remember that the line between self-confidence and arrogance is very narrow. 7. Don’t lie Don’t say lies to impress Interview board. Never create fake facts in your bio-data. Very often they will catch you. 8. Improve your communication skills Improve your command over the language for Interview. If you search for words in the 25-30 minutes MPPSC personality test, you may run short of time to express your ideas completely. Listening to debates and news on television channels is one practical way to improve communication skills. Also, start talking with your friends in the medium for Interview. 9.

If you need more guidance on do’s and don’ts for Interview, read our article on civil services interview where we have mentioned about the books which help in Interview preparation. 10. Don’t stop reading newspapers Candidates often stop reading newspapers once the MPPSC main exam is over. But, information about current happenings is very important for Interview, just like the MPPSC main exam. Have a general idea about the major happenings for last one year. Also, be familiar with the headlines and stories of the newspapers on the interview day. 11. Prepare well on your hobbies Very often this is the first question Interview board ask, many times in a light mood. Make sure you start well. Don’t give cliche answers. Hobbies help the interviewer to understand the personalities of candidates. Keep practicing your hobbies till the last week before Interview. 12. Revise your optional subject It is seen that many candidates tend to neglect their optional subject after MPPSC CSE Mains. But Interview panel may ask questions from your optional subject on the interview day. Brush up recent happenings related to your optional subject. 13. Go through your graduation text books MPPSC expects candidates to take their graduation seriously. As this is one area where the interview panel perceives the candidates to have expertise with. So, more in-depth questions can come from this area. 14. Learn to give balanced answers Your views should be balanced and impartial. This does not mean that you should not take a stand. Ideally, you should have stand – without any political or social bMPPSCes. Once you take a stand on controversial topics, be prepared with your justification for the same. Don’t give sweeping generalizations without a proper base. 15. Know your district and state Questions may be asked about the district and state. Collect details about your birth place. Know the problems in your village or city. Be prepared with solutions as well. 16. Keep calm The questions may be from a wide area of topics/subject. You sometimes may not be knowing answers of many. If you do not know anything about a topic you are asked, then admit that you do not have any idea. Don’t panic. Keep calm. Your emotional intelligence matters. Nobody knows about everything under the Sun. MPPSC board obviously knows that. 17. Don’t compromise your moral integrity MPPSC not only measures one’s intellectual qualities but also social traits. Ensure that your moral integrity is sound. 18. Maintain a positive body language Reinforce your spoken words through your body language. Avoid gestures which do not suit the occasion. 19. Understand the real ‘Interview questions’ Most of the questions forwarded as ‘Interview questions’ on the internet are not questions asked in Interview. MPPSC says ‘The interview test is not intended to be a test either of the specialised or general knowledge of the candidates which has been already tested through their written papers’. Read ClearMPPSC MPPSC toppers interview section to know about real Interview experience. 20. Don’t be swayed by rumours Many MPPSC candidates are seen to be carried about by the rumours about the personality test. Certain boards are seen are tight in awarding marks while others are perceived as liberal. Though slight variations may come, in reality, all boards award high and low marks depending on the performance of the candidate on the date of Interview. 21. Use common sense Sometimes MPPSC members ask questions which can be answered just by using common sense. But the stress on the interview day may hamper your thinking process. Realise that common sense is not common. Expect some puzzles which require on-the-spot critical or lateral thinking. 22. Dress neat The first impression matters. But it is not necessary to wear expensive blazers or suits for Interview. Be comfortable with what you wear. For gents, a light colored shirt and dark trousers should give a professional appearance. A simple churidar or saree is recommended for ladies. Whatever you wear, in that dress you should look confident and neat. 23. Re-check your documents We advice to carefully verify the documents before-hand to avoid last minute panic. Ensure that you have all necessary documents ready. Read our article – check list for Interview – to know about the documents that should be brought in for Interview. 24. Take mock Interviews Rehearsals help to avoid common mistakes. Good mentors and friends can find your strengths and weakness and suggest necessary suggestions. MPPSC toppers like Gaurav Agarwal (2013 All-India Rank 1) has said that mock interviews help. They also help to improve your consistency. At the same time, care should be taken not to lose your genuine personality, because of the confusion created by different opinions from different people. 25. Be yourself Don’t try to present before MPPSC board a fake personality. Don’t mug up ready-made answers for Interview. Be yourself and express your opinion.

Such articles are often found in the editorial page of the top national dailies, which must be perused properly and comprehended fully. To give a wider coverage to their preparation, aspirants must go through a couple of national dailies. Similarly, one must read at least one good news magazine.
Note – making It should be very precise as well as concise. Once has gone through the article, one must reflect on it and ask oneself, is it of relevance to me? If yes, then is it worth making a note or can I mentally summarise the essence of article and possibly remember it till the interviw stage? Am I in agreement with what is stated in the article ? If not, why? Always en-deavour to analyse the viewpoint expressed . Does the viewpoint conform to logic and reasoning? Is it falling within the constitutional and legal framework
How is it for the larger good of our nation and its people? Thus, develop your own perspective Identify the most important points which the article is emphasising upon. Note such three to five salient points in a small note book/spiral pad/ memo page of your smart phone. Revise them whenever you catch a few moments of spare time during the day
Television Television too is an important aid for preparation. However, exercise discretion in what and how much television you should watch it is advisable to switch to prime time news on national channels like, Doordarshan, Rajya – Sabha TV, Lok – Sabha TV, NDTV, etc. look out for those programmes which carry views and opinion of eminent people. Listening to all India Radio ( FM Gold) and programmes like News at Nine, Market Mantra ( economic news programme ) and Spotlingt ( news analysis programmes) are equality good options
Internet Internet has emerged as a viable option for all of the above and more. Besides reading news papers, magazines watching/ hearing news programmes etc. internet resources are rather valuable while working in areas related to one’s personal profile ( DAF). Further, good articles can easily be saved in soft form or important capsules of article be compile. However, beware, net surfing can be addictive and at times a drain on your time.
Books This phase of preparation is also an opportunity to widen your horizons of thought by reading good books, particularly non-function. Target at least a couple of books per month. Books authored by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, RamchandraGuha, Narayan Nikani. Etc. Which reflect on word issues, India and its society economy, polity etc. are definitely good value for time. Besides, do look out for specific books pertaining to areas of your interest, hobbies, state of domicile, or even those connected with the discipline of your current job/occupation.
Advise of seniors Also look out to meet successful candidates of past year experts/ seniors etc from the field you work or study in. you can also read the blogs of previous year’s toppers. Joining a coaching institute or a guidance programme for the interview is not a must, particularly if one has had in the past an experience of such an interview programme or of the MPPSC interview itself. However, for first timers, such programmes may make some value addition. But do join only with the feedback/ recommendation of candidate or a person who has a first-hand knowledge of the coaching institute/ guidance programme, lest it becomes a millstone around your neck

Overcoming the fears
POINTS OF REMEMBER:
Confidence is the most important
Recognize your potential. Those who are in the board of interview already know your potential. You have reached there by passing the Pre and Main Examination. So, go there with full confidence. Refuse immediately for questions that you do not know during the interview. Do not answer wrongly or argue.
Arrive on time for interview
One should reach the venue well before the said timings. There are a number of checks and formalities before the interview. Thus, to keep peace of mind, reach early and do away with formalities at the earliest possible.
Give interview in the language in which you are comfortable
While entering the room some people speak the words ‘May I Come In’ and ‘Good Morning or Good After Noon’ in English. After this, if the board members start interviewing in English then they become uncomfortable. On this you can politely tell the board members that we are more comfortable in Hindi. There is no objection to this matter. You can use a little English words during the interview.
Remember the basics:
It is advised to the candidates that one should know about the role, responsibility and one’s personal vision of joining the services. Do not greet the board members after entering the room. Do not dismiss any decision passed by the state or central government. Can argue on that if there are shortcomings in it, then you should suggest its remedy. If there is a problem, then solve it in front of the board.
Plan and perform
- Maintain composure on interview day. Go for a light walk, breath!
- Read the newspaper of that day. You have to be ready for all surprises
- Remember the significance of the day, all your struggles and efforts are to be rewarded on this day.
- Don’t stress much upon who the board members are. If you have done the work in the past, it won’t really matter.
- Plan beforehand your journey to the venue of the interview to avoid unnecessary stress.
Your body must speak
- Be fresh and active
- Enter in the hall-greet the board with politeness and delight on the face
- Wait unless asked to sit
- Express thanks for allowing you to sit
- Maintain eye contact with members and try to engage others
- Maintain composure while sitting-not too much body movement or too little
- After the interview, greet all and walk out gracefully.
Acing the non-verbal communication
Look people in the eye….and smile
Brush up on Body Language
- Body language is an extermely important detail of proper job interview etiquette. Communication experts tell us that 80% of our communication with others is non-verbal.
- One of the best ways to connect with people and build trust is to look them in the eye. Eye contact is also important during a group interview.
Don’t step on the last 3 words of someone’s conversation
- Be aware of what you’re communicating through your posture and stance-and make sure it’s good. For example, sitting with your arms and legs crossed sends a message that you are closed-off or feel defensive.
- If you keep your hands in your lap the entire interview, you could signal that you lack self-confidence. And, twirling your hair can make you look nervous or juvenile. Next, always stand up when someone else comes into the room. Professionally, you lose respect and credibility by staying seated- it sends a weak and powerless message.
- Think your movements through ahead of time, so you’re not distracted (or distracting) during the interview.
- Let your interviewer finish making their point, pause for 1-2 seconds; then, respond to their question or add to the conversation. Interruption in-between projects that you aren’t a good listener, which is a bad trait not only for civil services but for life in general.
VIRTUOUS TRIAD FOR SUCCESS IN PERSONALITY TEST
- Yes, a job interview is a high-pressure situation, but freezing up and looking nervous will lose you points in the few critical moments you have to shine.
- Smiling naturally (without pursing your lips tightly together) will make you appear confident, friendly, and approachable. Even if you’re not feeling it, fake it.
- A smile conveys that you’re someone who can get along with fellow employees, wow the boss, and impress the clients.
- Greek philosopher Aristotle, who lived between 384-322 BC, once said:
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”
- This is so true. All knowledge begins from self-knowledge. Therefore, Self-knowledge is the beginning of self-improvement, but this is the toughest part of knowledge.
- Benjamin Franklinput it best:
“There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.”
- Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as a universal answer to self-awarness. Everybody is different, and the only person that can teach you self-awareness is you.
The interview day: getting the basics right

The MPPSC Interview
- The candidates have to surrender their mobiles phone as soon as they enter the MPPSC building.
- Then they are made to sit in a hall where their certificates were verified.
- After the verification they were made to sit in the inner circle, a glass chamber in the groups based on whichever board was to interview them.
- A person would escort the candidates to the interview chamber after the previous candidates’ interview is over.
- The candidates were not allowed to carry their watches, pens, files or any other belongings to the MPPSC interview chamber except their handkerchiefs.
- Don’t bother too much about the duration of the interview, time slot of your interview or the day/date of the interview. MPPSC is an unbiased body.
- Enter and exit from the Interview gracefully.
- There is a psychologist sitting on the board is a mere myth.
- Avoid mapping the location of the board in the MPPSC hall and also expect the members to be seated anywhere in the interview rooms. The board can be seated just a few steps away from the door or sometime you will have to walk in a bit more.
- Don’t interact with other candidates who have completed their interview just before you. You can get stressed. However, it does make sense that you interact with those who have completed the interviews before the day of you interview so that the trend of the board can be understood.
- Don’t panic when your turn comes.
- It is enough if you wish the board once.
- Interview usually start for a majority of the candidates who have previous work experience and others from hobbies, interests & extracurricular activities column, State basic educational qualifications. If the interview isn’t based on the usual areas it could be based on Current Affairs based on last 15 days events.
“Remember that you are going for personality Test and not an interview of knowledge; so be confident, if you can reach up to the third stage, you are just one step away from where you want to be in the rank list.”
- There will always be factual questions. There will be many questions for which we don’t know the answers. These are only to test your psyche.
- Answer the opinion questions keeping in mind that you will have to satisfy the ego/need of the interviewer.
