Kerala KAS 2019 Detailed Exam Pattern Selection Procedure

Kerala Administrative Service (KAS) 2019 Detailed Exam Pattern and Selection Procedure

KAS Exam Pattern

Kerala Administrative service is the most prestigious exam which is to be conducted for the first time by Kerala Public Service Commission. As we all know for any examination the two fundamental reference guides are the syllabus and previous year question papers.

Syllabus helps us to understand what to study and how to study for the exam, whereas previous question papers help us to understand the depth of study required in each topic. But unfortunately for KAS exam we have only the expected syllabus and no previous question papers.

Should we start the preparation now itself? The answer is a big ‘Yes’. Now let’s look at how we can start our preparation confidently with available syllabus and information with us.

Before proceeding further, look at the expected syllabus for KAS exam.
As per available sources, there will be three stages for the examination and we will examine each stage in detail for understanding the requirements of the exam.

First Stage:  Preliminary Exam 

The first stage will be an objective type examination and number of papers may be one or two as decided by Kerala PSC.

The syllabus for the examination may contain the same topics as listed in possible syllabus (Hyperlink syllabus page) and the questions will be mostly of analytical type rather than direct question answer type which we see normally in PSC exams.

If there are two papers in exam, the first paper will cover all topics except mental ability and second paper will be covering languages (English and Malayalam) as well as mental and arithmetic ability. If there is only one paper, then all the topics will be covered in a single paper. There are higher chances for a single paper exam as the second paper which followed in UPSC IAS exam is only qualifying type and is under debate.

The number of questions, marking scheme and negative marks etc… will be known only when the notification get published and there are chances for 100 questions as all other exams conducted by Kerala PSC are of this type.

Based on the marks obtained in Preliminary exam, list of candidates are shortlisted for appearing in main exam. The marks for preliminary exam may or may not be considered for the final selection and solely depends on the decision of Kerala PSC. The same will be clearly revealed in the notification.

Second Stage:  Mains Exam

The second stage exam which is the crucial stage and determines your rank in whole selection process will be of descriptive type, where you need to write descriptive answers for the question within limited words as set by the examiner.

There will be more than one paper covering the various topics listed in the syllabus and the answers which is crisp and meets the needs of question will fetch good marks. Thus answer writing practice plays a vital role in the exam which is to be developed by the aspirants in the due course of time.
Based on the marks obtained by the candidate in main exam or prelims + main exam, shortlist will be prepared. The shortlisted candidate has to appear for Personality Test which is the third stage.

Third Stage:  Personality Test

This stage decides your position in the rank list as the marks difference of candidates in earlier stages will be very narrow. This stage is actually an interview with panel members constituted by the Kerala PSC. The marks will be allotted by analysing the personality and traits of the candidate. This may not be a knowledge checking session as it was already tested through two stages. The focus will be on assessing the ability to analyse various social issues and developing own viewpoints on each topic.
Now the question which arises in everyone’s mind that, how to prepare for the exam? Here KAS Insights is going to help you with the right information and guidance. The preparation strategy should be comprehensive by covering all the three stages of the examination, for that detailed strategy is already formulated by KAS Insights.
