    UPSC Interview is a test of candidate’s overall personality (analytical ability, lateral thinking, logical decision making) and his personal suitability for a career in public service by a board of competent and unbiased observers. Interview is not that of a strict cross-examination but of a natural, though directed and purposive conversation, which is intended to reveal the mental qualities of the candidate.
