    Dear basically personality test is conducted to test various skills of the candidate - Aptitude, General Studies, Current Affairs, Critical Decision Ability etc. and interview will be conducted by the board for selection decided by central - UPSC board

    All candidates will have to answer questions in required language that is - English Language but if sometimes any person ask in Hindi then you have to answer in Hindi for that question but we have never seen this type of interviews when interviewers asked questions in native language of the state or in any other language excluding to english but do not worry because if you are from Tamil then there will be separate bodies for you to test your proficiency in native language but all questions will be asked in English language only so you have to make good expertise over English language then only you will be able to answer all questions in that language and if you could not perform well in required way then your application may be rejected

    So to become an IAS Officer first of all you should have good proficiency in english language because this will work everywhere so you should give at least 2 hours to learn english language and try to converse only in English with everyone so you could make ti perfect and try to hear speeches and english language songs so you could easily be understandable for various verities of this language and learn modern words that are mostly in use because everything is mandatory to pass interview process so you have to dedicate your all time only for one thing so be aware about your career and learn this language more than required under a proper guidance

    All the best
