    Re: How CSAT is different from CS Mains?


    friend CSAT AND CS MAINS are the part of civil servcie exam stages..

    civil service is the entrance exam conduct by upsc once in year to recruit aspirants into IAS,IPS,civil services,IRS etc of government sector


    1)CSAT=which stands for civil service aptitude test,which consists of only objective questions

    2)CS MAINS =means civil service main exam,it is conducted for those who who has cleared the CSAT

    FOR THIS you would be having optional subjects..

    3)finally interview for the merit list candidate

    i think you had understood..

    so keep practicing the model papers and give your best during exam

    good luck

    thank you

    CSAT is the prelims examination of the main civil services examination.
    There are three stages of the civil services examination.
    1. Prelims
    2. Mains
    3. Interview
    You need to clear all the stages in order to get through with the civil services.
    If you do not clear the prelims examination, then you wont be allowed to sit for the mains examination.
    The CSAT paper is the objective paper whereas the CS mains exam is of subjective type
