Civil Services Exam Interview is a part of final round of selections into the prestigious Civil Services. It is heartening that most of the questions asked in the interview are on the expected lines. Candidates can prepare for them well in advance to secure a decent result. Aspirants fail to understand the significance of common questions. Here are the 3 most commonly asked questions in UPSC interviews.
a) Tell us about yourself?
This is the first question you may be asked. This question will help the interviewers about yourself better. It gives them the first impression of the candidate. Make sure that you talk about your education, family, upbringing, employment, etc, in a crisp manner. You may take a minute for introducing yourself but it should be reduced to a maximum of 2 minutes.

Multiple points can help but keep it within limits so that you can explain them well.

By telling your hobbies you are actually telling them the common things you do in your life. you should not tell lies in this part. It may be that you don’t have any serious hobby.
