The Union Public Service Commission will be conducting the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination, 2020 along with Indian Forest Service (Preliminary) Examination, 2020 on October 4 (Sunday) all over India.
Keeping in view a large number of candidates of the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination, 2020 including the Indian Forest Service (Preliminary) Examination, 2020 and requests received from the candidates for changing their Centers, the Commission has decided to give an opportunity to them to submit their revised choice of Centre.
Besides above, the option to change the Centers for the Civil Services (Main) Examination, 2020, and the Indian Forest Service (Main) Examination, 2020 is also being made available to the candidates. The requests of the candidates for change in their Centers will be considered against the additional/enhanced capacity intimated by the Centers for accommodating the additional candidates.
The window of submitting the revised choice of Centers by the candidates will be operational in two phases i.e. 7th-13th July, 2020 (06.00 PM) and 20th-24th July, 2020 (06.00 PM) on the Commission’s website https://upsconline.nic.in. The candidates are advised to visit the website and submit their choices of Centers of the above examination if required.
The candidates may please note that their requests for change in the Centers will be considered based on the principle of “first-apply-first allot” basis [which is followed in all the Examinations of the Commission and was mentioned in the Examination Notices of the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination, 2020 and Indian Forest Service Examination, 2020] and once the capacity of a particular Centre is attained, the same will be frozen. The candidates, who cannot get a Centre of their choice due to the ceiling, will be required to choose a Centre from the remaining ones.
In addition to the above, the Commission will also make a Withdrawal Window available to the candidates on the Commission’s website https://upsconline.nic.in during the period from 1st-8th August 2020. All the terms and conditions of the withdrawal of application will be the same as have been mentioned in the examination notice of the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination. Candidates must note that once the application has been withdrawn by the candidate, it cannot be revived in the future under any circumstances.
