     Pre-interview preparations

    Most commonly known as Personality test. An Interview is intended to evaluate the mental caliber of a candidate. In W.B.C.S Examination, interview is not intended to be a test either of the specialized or general knowledge of the candidate, which has been already tested through written papers. This is a very important part of W.B.C.S Examination syllabus and fetching good marks in an interview is not as easy as it may sound.Candidates are expected to have taken an intelligent interest not only in their special subjects of academic study but also in the events which are happening around them both within and outside their own state or country as well as in modern currents of thought and in new discoveries which should rouse the curiosity of all well-educated youth.Continue Reading Pre-interview preparations For WBCS.

    Some of the negative experience that you can face:

    1. One of the panel member doesn’t ask you any question and behaves as if you’re not in the room. (Important: Even if a member doesn’t ask question, you should maintain eye contact with all members in the entire panel. Don’t make it one-on-one conversation. keep looking and addressing everyone in the room.)
    2. He asks you question but he doesn’t look at you. He just keep looking in his file / mobile / tablet / laptop, as if you don’t exist in the room. (You still need to maintain eye contact with all.)
    3. Panel seems to more keen to drinking their tea, gossiping among each other etc. rather than conducting interview. (in this case, don’t worry.)
    4. One of the member even leaves the room during interview. (in this case, don’t worry.)
    5. They rudely keep interrupting you “No No your answer is wrong. You know nothing. You’re not serious about this career….…..” and so on.
    6. They make direct derogatory remarks about your home-state or graduation or both.
    7. They keep asking tough followup questions, with obvious intent to confuse and ridicule you more.
    8. Even if you give a seemingly right answer, he says “you’re wrong, you know nothing.”
