UPSC

A lots of people are asking me about the preparation of CMS personality test which is conducted by UPSC. I have given that test recently and cleared it successfully .So I think it will be helpful for those people who are going to give this personality test, if I share my experience with you.

The first thing you have to understand that it is a personality test, so they will judge your personality not the knowledge you have, for which they had already conducted the theory test & already you have successfully cleared it.

A lots of people are asking me about the preparation of CMS personality test which is conducted by UPSC. I have given that test recently and cleared it successfully .So I think it will be helpful for those people who are going to give this personality test, if I share my experience with you.

The first thing you have to understand that it is a personality test, so they will judge your personality not the knowledge you have, for which they had already conducted the theory test & already you have successfully cleared it.

Each day the personality test is conducted in two halves, morning & afternoon. They will call around 50-60 people in each halve, divide this 50-60 people in 7-8 table, each table consisting of 7-8 people (the number may vary in each year, what I am telling is what I have seen during my interview). There are around 7-8 interview boards; people from each table will go to a single interview board. Each day these interview boards are reshuffled.

Usually board consists of 5 people-1 IAS officer (non medical) & 4 medical personnel. These medical personnel may come from medicine/ surgery/G&O/eye /ENT/skin/orthopaedics/paediatrics /PSM or any other clinical branch. It depends on your luck which specialists you will face.

Your preparation starts from the day when you are filling the detailed application form. There is a section where you have to mention about hobby. Be careful you will be asked in details about your hobby. Usually the IAS officer will ask about these things and with this your interview will begin. Remember that if you can please the IAS it will be easier for you to get selected. So be careful about your GK. Now some questions asked by him-

1. As I have mentioned net surfing is my hobby, so he asked me about cyber crime & some detailed example of that.
2. You are in a busy A&E and at a same time 2 patients one doctor & one politician has came with RTA, whom you should treat first & give reason.
3. To whom you will be proud of kalpana chawla OR sania mirza & give reason.

Now some questions asked by the medical personnel-
1.what are the causes of acute onset breathlessness.
2.treatment of pulmonary edema- with dose of drugs.
3.treatment of malaria, & filaria - with dose of drugs.
4.what is medical traveling?
5.most common cause of anemia in pregnancy, how will u treat it?
6.how u comes to know that a lady is taking iron.
7.scabies
8.treatment of laryngomalasia.
9.a boy has come to u with some unknown poisoning, what is the treatment.
10.name some surgical emergency u have seen.
11.treatment of acute retention & causes.
12.difference of treatment between acute & chronic retention.
13.define IMR MMR NMR & their value.
14.what % of population in Delhi has never seen the face of school?

So u can see they can ask u from every specialty, particularly G&O, pediatrics, PSM (read well the programs). Recapitulate some experience of A&E.

Regarding your dresses - I have seen only 2 people-wearing tie during my day. So ordinary dresses will help.

All your certificates will be checked outside, so u doesn't have to carry your files inside the interview room.

Don't forget to wish all the person in the interview board before & after the interview.

Try to relax before & during the interview.

If u are coming from an outside station try to reach Delhi one day earlier before the interview. Visit the place of interview personally. These will help to relax a bit.

So guys all the best for those who are going to give the personality test of CMS. If u have any question fell free to ask me.

( all I have mentioned is my personal experience , which may vary from person to person)
