New Delhi: UPPSC has changed the date of the preliminary examination of PCS, which will be held on August 19. Now the examination will be held on October 28. Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) has applied for more than 6 lakh 47 thousand candidates for the preliminary examination of PCS 2018 and ACF / RFO-2012. On average, more than 4 lakh candidates used to apply for the PCS exam each year, but for the first time, this number crossed 6 lakhs.
Significantly, the Commission is conducting a joint examination of the PSC and the Forest Department. These exams are for 917 posts, including 119 posts of SDM. For the first time, the Commission has issued an advertisement for recruitment in so many posts of SDM. The reason for the change in the dates of the exam is being considered as a huge number of applications. In this way, organizing the examination will be the biggest challenge for the commission.
