The exact date of interview will, however, be communicated to the qualified candidates through e-Summon Letter by UPSC. As the ESE interview stage carries a total of 200 marks, your performance in the interview can impact your ESE rank in the final list of ESE qualified candidates. According to past ESE toppers and the faculty at IES Master, one has to score more than 150 marks in the UPSC ESE interview to be among the list of ESE top rankers, and also to get the department of choice as filled in the Detailed Application Form (DAF).
To help all the ESE 2019 Mains qualified candidates take on this final stage with the required confidence, IES Master has come up with Interview Guidance Program.

To help candidates do a self-analysis and leave behind their weaknesses, IES Master also video-record the mock interview sessions, and provide the recordings to candidates for self-analysis.
As the UPSC interview panel has no set pattern, one has to be prepared to face any type of questions during the interview. The questions may be asked to test a candidate’s basic or core technical knowledge, current affairs knowledge, or they can be based on a candidate’s personal profile. Therefore, the interview panel of IES Master includes renowned technical and psychological experts. Besides, candidates’ are also informed about the importance of the Detailed Application Form (DAF) as it is on the basis of this DAF that the interview panel members are going to ask questions. DAF should be filled very carefully, especially the departmental preference section.
