- Technical/PD/Current Affairs Session
- Mock Interviews
Informal Interaction Session
During this session, candidates come to know about the importance of Detailed Application Form i.e. the DAF, and how they should fill the DAF. This will save them from facing awkward questions while facing the actual UPSC interview. In this session, Mock Interviews are also conducted to find out the areas on which a candidate needs improvement. During the mock interview sessions, one-to-one informal interaction is made with the candidate, his doubts related to the filling of DAF are cleared, how to arrange their order of preference, which hobbies or achievements to mention in the DAF and handle questions related to them, discuss possible questions related to his professional experience, etc. In addition to all this, a brief discussion on the methodology to be adopted for interview preparation is also done. The best thing about IES Master Interview Guidance Program is that this session i.e. the Informal Interaction Session is FREE for all ESE 2018 Mains qualified students.
