UPSC Mock Interview Program 2022-23 - Chanakya Mandal Pariwar

India’s Most Trusted



Starting from 20th January 2023

Venue: Delhi, Pune and Online

Presenting your best version in interview is the key to success:

Interview preparation is an ongoing process throughout the life. Generally, we observe that, few students are really fearful of facing the interview panel mainly due to perceived unpredictability of questions, awe-induced fear of interaction with senior expert panelists, etc. “Fear not! Uncertainty is the fertile ground of endless possibilities.”

So as to remove this fear and to sharpen the preparation of interview, we have various initiatives, most of them are organized after Mains exam is over.

Initially, special session to guide students to fill up their DAF (Detailed Application Form) is arranged wherein students are guided about filling up hobbies, interests, cadre and service preferences, etc. We also arrange for Interview Seminars wherein experts in soft skills, behavioral analysis, subject experts give comprehensive guidance to students. Specific sessions are also arranged for questions based on issues related to home state, cadre preferences, service preferences, etc.

The highest point of Interview Preparation initiative is our Mock Interview. Our mock interviews are conducted in Pune, Mumbai and Delhi which are conducted by eminent panelists from all across India.
