SYLLABUS  FOR  PRELIMINARY  COMBINED  STATE  CIVIL SERVICES  
EXAMINATION

 Punjab’s Economy and People ; its Social, Economic and Cultural Institution ; its 
Languate, its History, its Geography and Current Events. 
General Science. 
Current Events of national and international importance. 
History of India and Indian National Movement. 
Indian and World Geography. 
Indian Polity and Economy. 
General Mental Ability. 
 Questions on General Science will cover General appreciation and understanding of 
science including matters of everyday observation and experience, as may be expected of a well 
educated person who has not made a special study of any particular scientific discipline. In current 
events, knowledge of significant national and international events will be tested. In History of 
India, emphasis will be on broad general understanding of the subject in its social, economic and 
political aspects. Questions on the Indian National Movement will relate to the nature and 
character of the nineteenth century resurgence,  growth of nationalism and attainment of 
Independence. In Geography, emphasis will be on Geography of India. Questions on the 
Geography of India will relate to physical, social  and economic Geography of the country, 
including the main features of Indian agricultural  and natural resources. Questions on Indian 
Polity and Economy will test knowledge of the country’s political system and Constitution of 
India. Panchayati Raj, Social System and economic developments in India. On general mental 
ability, the  candidates will be tested on reasoning and analytical abilities.




Interview test :
 The candidate will be interviewed by a Board who will have before  them a record of his 
career. He will be asked questions on matters of general interest. The object of the interview is to 
assess the personal suitability of the candidate  for a career in public service by a Board of competent 
and unbiased observers. The test is intended to judge the mental calibre of a candidate. In broad terms 
this is really an assessment of not only his intellectual qualities but also social traits and his interest in 
current affairs. Some of the qualities to be judged are mental alertness, critical powers of assimilation, 
clear and logical exposition, balance of judgement, variety and depth of interest, ability for social 
cohesion and leadership, intellectual and moral integrity. 
 2.  The technique of the interview is not that of a strict cross-examination but of a natural, though 
directed and purposive conversation which is intended to reveal the mental qualities of the candidate. 
 3.  The interview test is not intended to be a test either of the specialised or general knowledge of 
the candidates which has been already tested through their written papers. Candidates are expected to 
have taken an intelligent interest not only in their special subjects of academic study but also in the 
events which are happening around them both within and outside their own State or country as well as 
in modern currents of thought and in new discoveries which should rouse the curiosity of well 
educated youth.
