Welcome to Intensive Orientation Course for Career in Civil Services.



Course Overview

There is no doubt that a job as a civil servant-at any level-still remains a highly attractive career option in today's employment landscape. Most of the graduate candidates aspire to work as a civil servant, but very few get this oppurtunity and they are the ones who successfully qualify civil services examination conducted by UPSC. Henceforth, a pertinent question ariseswhat is more important to qualify Civil Services Examination (CSE), innate talent of candidates or right efforts towards the goal.

Innate talent does not determine candidates' success in civil services examination but their ability to sustain attention (ability to remain focused on their goal), understanding the actual requirements of the exam (what UPSC tests in CSE), and adopting the scientific methods of learning and development (Science of Learning and Culture of Excellence). The cutting edge research in neuroscience of learning and real world experiences have clearly established that a person's excellence in any field is the result of his right efforts towards the goal but not his innate talent.

The preparation of civil services examination is a journey of your learning and development. The purpose of civil services examination is to select the most suitable candidates for civil services. The most suitable candidates are the ones who have Higher Level of Response Ability. The Higher Level of Response Ability is the ability or potential to perform to 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 (HOTS) such as critical thinking skill, strategic thinking skill, innovation skill, collobration skill and communication skills. As each candidate begins his preparation of CSE with a different level of Response ability based on his Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes; therefore, he must strive to develop his Higher Level of Response Ability to accomplish the criteria of most suitable candidate to get success with a high rank in CSE. Any graduate candidate can easily fulfil this criteria of most suitable candidate in 8 to 10 months by doing right efforts towards his goal. 

This Intensive Orientation Course for Career in Civil Services will provide valuable information and detailed knowledge of all aspects of New Pattern of Civil Services Examination and its preparation, and it will enable you to develop a New Thinking and Correct Approach towards the preparation of New Pattern of Civil Services Examination based on actual requirements of this exam, and scientific methods of learning and development (Science of learning and Culture of excellence).

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 (good and competent) candidates for civil services is based on candidates' Higher Level of Response Ability: developed by acquiring Right Knowledge, Right Attitudes (spirit and in-depth interest in public service), and Higher order thinking skills (HOTS) such as critical thinking skill, strategic thinking skill, innovation skill, collaboration skill and communication skills. These Higher order thinking skills are the leading skills of 21st century, and they are essential for High performing civil services.
