Exam Date Announced UPSC 2020 Civil Services (IAS) Prelims on October 4: New Exam Date Announced @upsc.nic.in
UPSC on its official website confirmed that the UPSC Civil Services Prelims Exam will be conducted on 4th October 2020. The Commission has also clarified the status of various other exams that had been deferred due to COVID-19 pandemic.
UPSC Prelims 2020 New Exam Date: UPSC has released the exam schedule for various examinations which had been postponed earlier. UPSC Civil Services Prelims Examination is now scheduled for October 4, 2020. As per the UPSC Exam calendar, the UPSC Civil Service (Prelims) exam 2020 was scheduled for 31st May 2020. However, with the outbreak of COVID-19 in the country, it was not possible to conduct the exam on a pan India basis with more than 9 lakh candidates to appear for the same. The new guidelines mentioned by the Union Government in the “Unlock-1” plan would have helped the Commission come to a final decision.
The UPSC Civil Services Mains Exams have also been rescheduled for 8 January 2021.
Meanwhile, the countrywide lockdown compelled several candidates to travel back to their hometown hence it had been difficult for them to commute to their exam centers. With transportation facilities in the country will take time to get back on track with Unlock-1 imposed, the candidates would require pertinent time to travel to their exam centers once the commutation facilities resume.
Apart from the UPSC (IAS) Prelims 2020 exam, the Commission had also deferred the Personality Tests (Interviews) for the UPSC (IAS) Exam 2019 which were scheduled between March 23 and April 3, 2020. New dates for these tests have been scheduled for July 20 onward
