Some KPSC exams, such as the Karnataka Administrative Service (KAS) Exam, may have a preliminary examination as the first stage.
The preliminary exam is usually an objective type (multiple-choice questions) paper.
It serves as a screening test to shortlist candidates for the main examination.
The topics covered in the preliminary exam generally include current affairs, general knowledge, and specific subject areas relevant to the particular service or post.
Candidates who qualify the preliminary exam (if applicable) proceed to the main examination.
The main examination typically consists of multiple papers, and the format may vary depending on the specific exam.
The main exam papers may include essay-type questions, descriptive questions, or a combination of both.
The subjects and topics covered in the main examination papers are specific to the service or post for which the exam is being conducted. For example, the KAS Mains exam covers a wide range of subjects such as History, Geography, Polity, and Ethics.
After the main examination, candidates are usually called for an interview or personality test.
The interview assesses the candidate’s knowledge, communication skills, problem-solving abilities, and suitability for the specific service.
The interview panel may consist of experts and members of the Karnataka Public Service Commission.
The final selection is based on the candidate’s performance in the main examination and the interview.
The weightage given to each stage of the selection process may vary depending on the exam.
