    Re: Is it compulsory to write Civil Services Mains exam even after clearing CSAT with high marks?

    Yes it is compulsory to write the Civil Services Mains exams after clearing the CSAT with High marks.

    UPSC conducts the Civil Services Exam(CSE)every year to make recruitments to 24 posts/services.
    The CSE procedure is very rigrous and quite long.CSE are one of the toughest exams at the All India Level.

    CSE is conducted in 3 stages :
    1.Prelims/CSAT-stands for Civil Services Aptitude test which is conducted to shortlist candidates for the UPSC CS Mains exams.
    It is a qualifying exam to become eligible to appear in the Mains exams.It consists of Papers 1 & 2 of General Studies and total marks is 400 marks.
    High score in CSAT does not mean you can skip the mains exams.Mains exams is the real test of intellect and indepth Knowledge
    of the candidates while CSAT is a simple test to gauge that the candidate has apptitude to appear in the Mains or not.

    2.Mains exams-
    is conducted to test the real abilities of the candidates,their knowledge and intellegence not just their memory
    power or reproduction of facts from rote learning.Mains consists of 9 eassy type papers and total marks is 2000 marks.
    A candidate is fit to be a Civil Servant in future or not is tested in the Mains.
    After clearing the Mains then only candidates are called for an interview.

    3.Interview
    -is the test of personality of candidates and on clearing it selection is made to the Final Merit List.Interview is of total 300 marks.

    It is thus compulsory to write the Prelims/CSAT,Mains and appear in the Interviews in a given year & clear all 3 stages to be in the Final Merit List.
    Scores in the individual exams does not matter,one has to qualify each stage and rank in the merit list is important to get a post/service.

    UPSC conduct the Civil Services Exam every year for the post of IAS, IPS, IFS etc.

    It is conducted in three phases:
    1. CSAT
    2. Mains
    3. Interview

    you have to clear all the sections then you are selected for the post of IAS, IPS, IFS etc.

    CSAT is only for the pass for the mains exam. if you clear the CSAT exam then you are selected for Mains. Marks you got in CSAT will not carry to mains.

    candidates are selected on the basis of Mains and Interview.

    So, it is necessary to face all the levels if you want to get job.


    Good Luck......

    Re: Is it compulsory to write Civil Services Mains exam even after clearing CSAT with high marks?

    Civil services preliminary exam is only of qualifying nature , a screening test to select serious candidates for mains examination. Marks secured in preliminary will not be useful in the later stages. SO even you are the topper in preliminary exam, you will not get any benefit. You have to prove your mettle in mains exam. Mains exam is where the candidates' real ability is tested. Because in preliminary exam, you get to select the answers from given choices only. But in mains exam, you have to express your views, lot of opinion based questions will be asked. Thus your writing will show the evaluators (who are highly experienced people) what is your attitude in problem solving, critical thinking etc. Since preliminary exam is objective type, with just a bit of luck even the candidates who have not prepared seriously can clear the exam. But mains is purely conventional, without proper preparation you cannot even score a single mark. Mains exam only identifies the candidates who are really serious and prepared well.
    Thus mains is the most important stage in recruitment for civil services, you can not skip it.

    Dear Friend,

    The Union Public Service Commission conducts the Civil Services Examination every year for the recruitment of candidates for posts like IAS , IPS , etc.

    The Civil Services Exam is conducted in three phases :

    a) CSAT

    The Candidates who pass in the CSAT are selected to go for the MAINS Exam which is generally held after 3 months of the CSAT Exam.

    After passing the MAINS Examination , successful candidates are called for the interview or sometimes Group Discussion too , passing which you get recruited for posts mentioned above.

    So , i just want to tell you that no matter with how much high marks you have passed CSAT , you have to appear in these two examinations at any cost if you want to crack the civil services Examination.

    This is the information i have to the best of my knowledge regarding your query. Hope the information will help you to the extent you want.

    Hello there..

    >> Yeah. It is compulsory to write the Civil Services Mains exams,even after clearing the CSAT with very high marks.

    >> The Civil Services exams are conducted in three legs basically-

    # The Preliminary exams.
    # The Mains exams.
    # The Interviews.


    >> Here,I would like to mention that the Civil Services Aptitude Test acts as a screening of candidates,after which the selected candidates proceed to give the Mains exams.
    >> So,getting the qualifying marks at the Prelims is just enough to proceed further.
    >> Thereafter,you sit for the Mains and finally for the Interviews.
    >> The final rank you score depends upon the total marks you secured combined,in Mains and Interviews.

    >> Hence,you will have to appear the Mains and the Interviews,and even qualify them with a good rank to get your desired post.

    all the best.

    Mains

    Interview.

    Preliminary examination is conducted to filter the candidates for next round.

    If you clear the CSAT Exam with very good score, it doesn't mean you can skip the next round.

    To get into these services, you have to qualify in all the three stages.

    Hi
    Yes, it is cpmpulsory to write the mains examination once you cleared the CSAT, no matter with the last rank or the top rank.
    Because the CSAT exam is just a process of the examination phases in order to become the IAS officer. Firstly there is a CSAT or the prelomnary exam and then there is this mains exam after which you will be having your personal interview.
    And if you clear all these three stages then you will be an officer in upsc

    Complete selection procedure of civil service examination for IAS and other various posts

    1. Preliminary Examination : This is the first test in this process in that you have to appear for two different objective type multiple choice papers and qualifying in this test is compulsory, qualifying in both papers is not compulsory because UPSC board declares result on the basis of the performance of both papers and if your marks of both papers comes under the minimum qualifying standard score then you will be declared as qualified

    2. Mains Examination : If you qualify preliminary examination then you will be allowed to appear for mains examination which is most compulsory thing in this selection procedure and if you could not qualify prelims then you have not right or eligibility to apply for mains examination so be prepared and qualify with good marks in prelims and prelims exam marks are not added in mains examination because that is your prelims test which is conducted to find out some best candidates for mains exam and in this examination you have to face following 7 conventional type papers

    Paper I - Essay - 200 marks and English Comprehension - 100 marks = 300 marks

    Paper II - General Studies - 250 marks

    Paper III - General Studies - 250 marks

    Paper IV - General Studies - 250 marks

    Paper V - General Studies - 250 marks

    Paper VI - Any one selected optional subject - 250 marks

    Paper VII - Any one selected optional subject - 250 marks

    Qualifying in each paper is compulsory and all those candidates who get qualified in mains exam will be called for interview process and this process contains 275 marks and if you qualify this process also then you will become an IAS Officer

    If you think that you will get interview call only after qualifying prelims exam then you are not right because prelims exam conducted for mains exam and you will have to appear for mains exam and qualify all 7 papers in mains examination then only you will be called for interview process and for your more information I have attached complete notification for this exam which is published by UPSC board please download and get more information
