UPSC Interview Tips by IAS Topper Tina Dabi


1. Prepare all possible questions from yours detailed Application Forms (D.A.F), This is the source from which 50-60% of question will be asked.

Research on every little information you have provided on the DAF.

For eg. they sometimes even ask the meaning of your name, or , say , they ask you about the signature handicraft from your hometown .

  • NAME (meaning)
  • OCCUPATION OF PARENTS
  • SCHOOL (its motto, its uniqueness)
  • GRADUATION / Post graduation
  • HOBBIES (be honest and research well)
  • EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
  • LEADERSHIP POSITION (if any) held in school / college.
  • SPORTS ACTIVITIES you participated in.
