Prelims are mainly objective tests.

The mains test will be a traditional or subjective exam, and candidates who qualify for the Prelim exam will only be eligible to undertake the mains exam.

Following that, there’ll be a personality test followed by an interview round in which they will assess the applicant’s expertise such as exam specifics, management, and overall attention. Candidates who have passed the prelims and mains exams will only be qualified for that stage.

After passing all three steps, a medical exam will be administered.
