for civil service, i understand that the interview standard format is 1st round meeting hr managers, 2nd round meeting directors. May i ask which round is the difficulty level of getting through higher? As in, is it a)1st round juz basic screening, 2nd round is real deal or b) 1st round is make or break, 2nd round is basically pleasing directors and saying the politically right stuff?

Depends. If your interviewer is someone who dislikes smart alecs and you say the politically correct thing, you also won't stand a high chance of being selected. Maybe you should have more interviews and have a feel of what majority of the interviewers like to hear.

Number of rounds not limited to 2. It depends where you are going.

Politically correct answer is the way to go. They generally do not like mavericks.

just be honest, if you get in then you are probably right for the job. If not even if you get the job, you will not last long or they will see through your answers.
