The subjects and questions asked in the exam differ as per the post for which the applicant is giving the test. Candidates are selected on the basis of the marks they score in all these stages. The Screening Test is like a preliminary exam and examines the general knowledge and aptitude of the candidate. Topics of general studies, arts and culture, literature, current affairs, history, geography, Indian polity, environmental issues, socio-economic development of Himachal Pradesh, etc. will be asked in this section.

If the candidates qualify the screening test, they will be permitted to sit for the Main Exam. No separate call letters will be given to the candidates for this exam. After qualifying this stage, the candidates will be called for personal interviews. The selection of candidates will be done on the basis of the marks they secure in the last two stages. Their marks in the screening test will be counted when the Commission is shortlisting all candidates for the final merit list.
