There is no such thing as ‘passing’, you have to qualify - V Irai Anbu IAS, Secretary to Government

Stressing the need to improve practical knowledge for qualifying in UPSC exams, V Irai Anbu IAS, Secretary to Government, Personnel and Administration Reforms Department, asked civil service aspirants to focus on qualifying and not clearing the exams.

There is no such thing as ‘passing’, you have to qualify, and that’s why we call it as Competitive Exams, said V Irai Anbu, at the inauguration of UPSC Civil Services Free Coaching Centre for Women organised by the Queen Mary’s College, here on Friday.

“Theoretical knowledge will not provide good results always until you apply them in practical,” said Irai Anbu.

In his address he said, “To qualify in the civil services exams it requires extensive reading on various subjects. For each and every question, you have to arrive on your own conclusion. For instance, if there is a question of reservation policy, many candidates write the merits and demerits of the reservation. But none has the ability to conclude their own, whether the policy is good or bad. Since your answer is going to be unique it needs a skill of specialisation. In the personality test, the examiners will look out for your presence of mind.”

He also explained the examination structure and the preparations a candidate should deserve.
