Only those who qualify in the written examination will be called for the interview(200 marks).
This aims at assessing the candidate's capacity for leadership, initiative, intellectual curiosity, tactfulness and other social qualities, mental and physical energy, powers of practical application and integrity of character.

The final selection is made on the basis of the aggregate marks scored in the written examination and the personality test.
