Will CSE-2018 Interviews take place before IFoS Interviews this year?

Even though CSE Mains- 2018 ended one month early as compared to last year (7th October as against 3rd November), The IFoS mains exam will be conducted at roughly the same time (first two weeks of December).
So by the time CSE Mains result is declared, IFoS Mains will still be underway.
Does this mean that CSE Interviews will start in January and be wrapped up in February itself, to be followed by IFoS interviews in March?

Or will they be put on hold until IFoS interviews end, only to commence at around the same time i.e. middle of February?

    I think ifos and cse mains result will be declared around same time this year between 25th December -31st December window

    Ifos interview will be conducted from 21-27th January with results on 2nd feb. That is same as last year.

    And cse interview will start from 4-5th feb and continue till 20th march and results around 25th march.
  • So the cse cycle will move by 1 month
    And ifos will stay as it is

    So the cse cycle will move by 1 month
    And ifos will stay as it is

    If CSE cycle moves by one month, and IFoS stays as it is, there would be a clash in dates.
    Let me put it like this.
    Comparing LAST YEAR------------ THIS YEAR.

    CSE MAINS ended on 3/11/17 ------------ 7/10/18
    IFoS MAINS ended on 13/12/17 ------------ 10/12/18
    IFoS MAINS result 3/1/2018 ------------ ??
    CSE MAINS result 10/1/18------------ ??
    IFoS INTERVIEWS 5/12/18-16/2/18 ------------ ??
    CSE INTERVIEWS 19/2/18- April end ------------ ??

    Hope this table highlights the issue better.

    CSE MAINS ended on.
    3/11/17 ------------ 7/10/18



    IFoS MAINS ended on
    13/12/17 ------------ 10/12/18

    IFoS result and CSE MAINS result both between 21-31st December

    IFoS INTERVIEWS 1/2/18-11/2/18

    CSE INTERVIEWS 15/2/18- march end

  • That sounds more like it I think. Why just March end though? What's the expected interview intake vis a vis last year?
