New Pattern of Civil Services Examination 

The New Pattern of Civil Services Examination is implemented under the policy of attracting the most suitable candidates in civil services. To transform the civil services according to the needs of 21st century Governance and rapid economic development, Government of India is shifting from current Rule based personnel administration to a Competency based Strategic Human Resource Management system (SHRM). 

Competency based approach looks at the individual as a vital resource to be valued, motivated and developed. Hence for the success of SHRM—it is imperative to select good and competent persons, and provide them training to equip with qualities and competencies for their current and future jobs. Accordingly, Government of India introduced National Training Policy 2012 and New Pattern of Civil Services Examination in 2011-2013.

  • In New Pattern of Civil Services Examination, the selection of most suitable candidates (good and competent) for civil services is based on candidates’ Higher Level of Response Ability. The Higher Level of Response Ability is the ability or potential to perform to the required standard, and it is developed by acquiring Right Knowledge, Right Attitudes (spirit and in-depth interest in public service) and Higher order thinking skills.
  • Since the nature of civil servant job is Higher Level of Cognitive Functions, the New Pattern of Civil Services Examination tests candidates’ Higher Level of Response Ability/cognitive ability rather than their informative knowledge and fluency of various subjects.
  • To ensure high performance in New Pattern of Civil Services Examination, you should accomplish the criteria of most suitable candidate by developing your Higher Level of Response Ability through understanding and acquiring Right Knowledge, Right Attitudes and Higher order thinking skills.
