UPSC civil services exam interviews 2011 – Rajni Razdan Board

Students have been discussing about Rajni Razdan both before and after the interviews:-— how and what questions she asks, what kind of marks she gives etc. One person says that Rajni Razdan only eats or sleeps in UPSC (see link below and snapshot).

Here are some extracts and you can see the link below for more comments on Rajni Razdan:

  1. most of my frds told me that…RAZDAN either eat or sleep in UPSC (comment by some Edison).
  2. i heard that they moderate the marks given in the interview at the end of the day…. like all board member will sit together and then will adjust marks on the strength of biodata, background etc. [Ajay]
  3. I was also intervwd by same board in IFS and finally selected…although dont know my marks yet I can say wud be above average in interview.
    Rajni Razdan only asked me my name,dob,..joined any job ??? and then my hobby cooking…how can u prepare cottage cheese.
    Rest of members took my intervw in good environment…I saw that they had a copy of summary sheet and blank papers..they were framing qstns on basis of that and writing on that blank paper…I saw that candidate next to me was from Vet Sc…member sitting next to me was writing-what is homeostasis?
    Every member was doing same..perhaps instructed for that.
    Rajni mam was indulged in her paper work thruout intervw.
    At the end,she asked last member-Ho Gaya???and then said-u may go now.
  4. I met few person who appeared in this board. general opinion is that she is being very factual and not asking questions herself…………………………………………………………….. One person also said that she had the Manorama Year Book and was flipping through the pages. also that, she was looking into a sheet of papers and asking questions like, "name the capital cities of Central Asia"……………………………………………………………….. So, the pattern seems to be the same for everyone. atleast we don’t have special reasons to worry!………………………………………………………………………………………. although i wonder on what basis she will be rewarding marks?
