The candidates, opting to write the Civil Services (Main) Examination in English, may choose as the medium for interview either English or Hindi or any other Indian Language opted by them for the compulsory Indian Language Paper in the written part of the Civil Services (Main) Examination. However, the candidates, who are exempted from the compulsory Indian Language Paper, will have to choose either English or Hindi as a medium of the Interview of Personality Test.

Question 11: Am I allowed to leave the examination hall during the test? 

Question 12: After the written examination, on what criterion is the answer books sent for evaluation? Is it on Roll no. basis or based on centre of examination? That is, will a particular examiner/set of examiners get to evaluate answer books only of a particular center or a particular group of Roll nos.? 
Answer: Mixing of the answer books received from different venues is done before sending them for evaluation. Computer-based randomized fictitious code no. is given to each answer-book before evaluation.

Question 13: Are answer books segregated/sorted based on the community of the candidate? 
Answer: This is not done at any stage of the evaluation process.

Question 14: Is it likely that my evaluated performance suffers because my answer books were evaluated by a strict examiner, while another candidate benefits as his answer books were evaluated by a liberal examiner? 
Answer: The Paper Setter, who is an eminent person in his field, normally acts as the Head Examiner, and wherever the number of candidates in a particular subject is very large, the Commission appoints Additional Examiners for valuation of answer books. To achieve uniformity in valuation, where more than one Examiner is involved, the Commission arranges a meeting of the Head Examiner with the Additional Examiner after the Examination is over. At this stage, they discuss thoroughly the question paper, the appropriate answers, and decide the standard of evaluation. To further bring about uniformity of assessment inter se the Examiners, the following procedure is undertaken:
The Head Examiner conducts a sample survey of answer books of each Additional Examiner to verify whether the uniform standards of evaluation evolved in the meeting of Examiners have actually been followed. Depending on the standard adopted by the Additional Examiner, the Head Examiner may confirm the awards without any change if the Examiner has correctly followed the standard decided upon, or may carry out upward / downward moderation as considered necessary to ensure a maximum possible degree of uniformity in the evaluation process. Therefore, the aspect of inter-examiner variation in standards of evaluation in a Paper affecting candidates performance is taken care of adequately.

Question 15: Can I know the question-wise marks awarded to me for a paper? 
Answer: In a competitive examination, what is relevant is not the absolute performance of a candidate, but his/her relative performance that in fact determines whether the candidate qualifies and, if so, his/her position in the merit list. Accordingly, as already explained above, the evaluation process does not end after an initial evaluation by an Examiner. Moderation, wherever applied, is on the total award initially given (the so-called raw marks) and not on a question-wise basis. Therefore, once the evaluation process is complete, neither raw marks nor question-wise marks subsist. What subsists is the candidates total score in a paper awarded at the end of the evaluation process and this award is normally made available to the candidate in due course on the Commissions website through query-based application software.

Question 16: Are there any open Examinations where subject-wise/paper-wise marks of each candidate are not made accessible/available to him/her? 
Answer: Yes; in the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination 
This is because the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination is simply and purely a shortlisting/elimination exercise to select candidates for the Main Examination and as such the scores obtained in this Examination are not communicated to candidates.

Question 17: Can I know the marks of other candidates who took the Examination from the Commission? 
Answer: It is important to remember though a Constitutional Body, the Commissions role is advisory. The Examinations it conducts are for recommending candidates to the Government based on clear requisitions received from Government. Therefore, as regards those who have finally qualified in an Examination, the detailed results, application/biodata forms of all such are sent to the concerned Ministry/Department for all further processing. Therefore, once these results are sent to the concerned Ministry/Department, the concerned Ministry/Department becomes the natural and proper custodian of these results and it would only perhaps be proper for queries pertaining to the results of qualified candidates to be addressed to the concerned Ministry/Department.
As regards candidates who do not qualify finally, the right of information of a citizen has to be balanced against the right of privacy of an unsuccessful candidate who has not qualified for an appointment to public service. The feedback received by the Commission shows that there are candidates who do not want their marks to be in the public domain. While a case can be made out for having the marks of those who qualified finally for public appointment in the public domain, no such public interest argument can be invoked for candidates who have not qualified and there is no reason why such candidates scores should willy-nilly be forced into the public domain.

Question 18: If the overall marks of two or more candidates are equal, how is relative merit between such candidates decided? 
Answer: Tie-breaking principles are applied to decide inter se merit among candidates having the same overall marks. The principles adopted for each Examination are given in the attached Annexure.

Question 19: Wherever evaluation standards are set or moderation is applied, are these different for different mediums (languages) in which a particular subject/paper Examination is written? 
Answer: No. The evaluation standards/moderation for a Paper are not medium-specific. In other words, if the Rules of the Exam provide that a Paper can be written in any of, say, English/Hindi/a recognized Indian language; then the medium in which a candidate writes the Paper will not be a factor in determining evaluation standards or the moderation to be applied.

Question 20: Is it possible that evaluation/assessment could be affected by the knowledge of a candidates identity? 
Answer: No. Before evaluation, the Roll no. written on every answer book is detached and computer-based randomized fictitious code no. is given. At no stage of the evaluation process 
( including the moderation stage) is the actual Roll no./identity of the candidate known to any of the Examiners/officials associated in the process.

What is the Scope in Chemical Engineering after B.E. / B.Tech 
One should proud of being a Chemical Engineer.
Chemical engineering is a very much profitable sector and its scope in India is very vital. Chemical Engineers are the top paid as compared to other branches pass-outs. There has been a boom in this field and 100% of placements are sure. 
Thus, firstly we should know what is chemical engineering? A common misconception is that the work conditions of chemical engineers are hazardous is fake. In the modern era, every chemical engineer works in a safe environment and has minimum contact with the direct use of chemicals. In India, chemical engineers have recruitment opportunities in many sectors. Likewise: petroleum and petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, rubber, paper, fertilizers, organic and inorganic industries, etc.
