The information regarding the dress to be worn during the tests and also during non-test hours is usually contained in the call-up instructions. Although it is said that dress does not carry any weight for these tests, the candidates should not forget the normal psychological impression created on others by a well-dressed man and an ill dressed individual. The famous saying that "Apparel oft proclaims the man" has much truth behind it. The candidates should present thenselves in appropriate dress as the occasion demands. Besides the inpression created on the minds of his fellow competitors is also equally important.

psychological tests normally start as soon as the candidates arrive at the Board and there may not be the time to opportunity for the candidates to change their dress.

Hence, as far as possible, the candidate should make it a point to arrive at the Board dressed appropriately, to meet this requirement.

Where cold climate prevails, the candidates are allowed to wear pull-overs or tasks, he would be reporting to the Interviewing Officer in the same Dress.

Depending on the climate and weather, he may put on a suit or simply a tie. The important point is that the dress should be neat, clean and fitting. It need not have to be expensive or showy to produce this effect. The candidate must remember that he would be wearing the chest number on top of the dress, in respect of all the tests.


The candidate should exercise special care regarding the safe keeping of his money, watch, pens and other such valuables or attractive items.

Further he must have suitable looking arrangements of his suit-case. The valuables like money etc., should not be left unattended and must be carried on one's person far practicable.
