UPSC Civil Services Prelims 2020 New Exam Dates

As per the UPSC Civil Services Prelims Exam 2020 Postponed official notification, UPSC would re-assess the situation on May 20 and announce the UPSC Civil Services Prelims 2020 exam dates  after the same. The commission would make the notice available on the official website upsc.gov.in. Commision, in the official notice further adds that the decision was taken as the restrictions (due to lockdown) were still in place. As such, it would not be possible to conduct the examination. 

The decision has been received well by the people. The on-going restrictions would have made it difficult for the candidates to reach the examination centres to appear for the exams as the transport facilities have been closed across the country. Moreover, in the condition of a pandemic outbreak sitting arrangement would have been a problem for the commission too as thousands of candidates appear in a single centre. The candidates, however, can now relax as their wait is over and keep a check on the official website of UPSC for further updates.

The commission generally releases the admit card before 20 days of the exam date. The admit card will be released post-May 20 now after the commission decides on the new dates.
