Kerala Administrative Service (KAS) Government of Kerala has constituted a new cadre of administrative officers designated as Kerala Administrative Service (KAS). The proclaimed aim is to have second line of managerial personnel to implement the policies and programmes of the government, to attract young talent to the pool and to serve as a feeder category for selection of IAS officers from the State pool. Kerala P.S.C. will shortly announce KAS examination, which will be an yearly affair, offering young graduates a new opening and opportunity. The announcement of the first KAS examination is expected in March 2019. The syllabus and mode of examination has many similarities, but has distinct nature compared to Civil Services Examination. There is importance for Kerala History, Culture, Renaissance, Economy and Geography and this forms a major component of the examination. For the final examination one third of the credit goes to Kerala Affairs. Preliminary Examination Two Papers of 100 marks each – Objective Type Questions only. These papers will be similar to Civil Services Preliminary and include topics on Current affairs of Kerala Regional, National and International Importance, National Movement of India, Indian history, Indian Economy, Kerala History, Culture, Renaissance, Economy and Geography, General Knowledge and Basic Science ( School level), Arithmetic Skill, Mental Aptitude and Logical Skill, Comprehension etc. Some questions on General English and Malayalam Language also are expected. Main Examination This consists of three papers which are of conventional written type. To tackle the examination candidates require articulation and skills beyond University examinations or usual PSC tests and graduate level examinations. What matters here also will be systematic approach, hard work, basic logic, problem solving approach etc. Three papers of 150 marks are proposed. 1. Kerala Affairs 2. Science subjects 3. Humanities It is learnt from reliable sources that there are two proposals regarding syllabus of second and third papers. First one is that there will be general science paper and a common humanities paper which will include topics from different area s of the two disciplines. In such a case the syllabi will be of general nature and will not go to degree level. The second proposal is to offer different subjects from Science and Humanities disciplines so that candidates can select two subjects of their choice, which can be from any discipline. In such a case the examinations will be of degree level of the Universities of Kerala. Both type of syllabi are ready with PSC and a decision is expected soon. Our Academy offers very comprehensive innovative method to meet the challenges of such an examination. A team of highly efficient and experienced faculty devotes itself to research and analysis so as to understand clearly the subject matter of the examinations and are impart their insight and skills to the students. This will definitely enable them to answer in articulate, logical, constructive and analytical manner. We promote and develop the administrative traits within the students ‘personality’ so that they can cross the hurdle of civil services examination. We also give attention on participatory and interactive learning. We believe without Test and discussion, class room learning is incomplete. Regular tests and analyses form the part of our programme and are mandatory.
