The UPSC conducts the Civil Service exams in three stages. The first stage is the Prelims exams. It’s only after qualifying the Prelims exam one can write the Mains exam which is the second stage. Those who qualify the Mains exam are eligible to appear for the personality test which is the third stage of the Civil Services exam.
There is an exam conducted for each stage and the results are declared after each exam. One can proceed to the second stage only clearing the first exam and can reach the third stage only after clearing the second exam.
The final result is a combination of the written as well as the personality test. A merit list is prepared combining the result of the Mains exams and the Personality test, soon after the completion of the third stage of the exam. Those who could find a place in the merit list become eligible to be inducted into the Civil Services and will be allocated a service according to the rank in the merit list. Those who do not figure in the merit list have to go through the process all over again.
