How Fast is UPSC in declaring Mains Result?

  • 18/6/2017: Combined preliminary exam held for Forest service and civil services.
  • 27/7/2017:  Civil Services Prelim result declared. 13,366 candidates were selected for the civil service Mains exam.
  • That means UPSC declared prelim result within 39 days. And After result, the selected candidates had barely 93 days to prepare for the Mains.
  • 28/10/2017 to 3/11/2017: Civil Services Mains exam conducted. Its topicwise question-papers are available on the top black menu of this website.
  • 10/1/2018: Civil service Mains exam result declared (Click me to see). Total 2568 candidates selected for the interviews, against the tentative vacancies of 980 officers (as per original prelim notification).
  • That means UPSC declared civil service Mains result within 68 days of conducting the written exam. Which is much slower than IFoS result where they finished the job within 21 days but then again IFoS-Mains had only a fraction of candidates than CSE-Mains-walla.
  • Those who’re qualified for interview, will get e-summon letter from UPSC’s website in upcoming days.
  • What else is new? DoPT has created new Zonal cadre policy (Click me for More) so accordingly, these interview-candidates will have to fillup a new “Adendum DAF” form to indicate their state-cadre preference. This new form will be available from 16th  to 29th   January 2018 on UPSC’s website

  18. Sir,

    I could not get an interview call.

    I have serious doubts regarding checking of my copies (knowing well that many people might be saying this).

    Each paper of mine had gone exceptionally well; even compared to my friends who have got interview calls.

    What course of action should I follow for retotalling etc ?

    Should I wait for my Mains marks to appear (after the final result is out), or, should I initiate some correspondence with the UPSC now ?

    Awaiting your personal views asap.
