Lowest result in last five years

UPSC prelim result vacancies decline

ये देखो कैसा पतन हो रहा है.

Here is the data related to number of candidates qualified for the Mains exam in the last five years

Year Notified Vacancies No. of Prelims Cleared candidates
2014 1291 16900
2015 1129 15008
2016 1079 15445
2017 980 13366
2018 780 10468

Last year 13,366 selected for Mains, whereas this year only 10,468 have been selected in the 2018 round. This is because since last five year, each year, the number of vacancies have been declining, and UPSC Mains-quota is 12-13 times the final vacancies.

To Those who qualified: DAF awaits

  • Those who cleared prelims, Congratulations! You will need to fillup a new form online before mains. It’s called “Detailed Application form” (DAF).
  • DAF will be available from 23rd July to 6th August till 6PM.
  • UPSC’s unhelpdesk numbers: 01123385271, 011-23098543 or 011-23381125.

To Those who did not qualify

  • This is not the end of the world: Look at the right hand green box for the upcoming exams and for next year prelims (scheduled on 2nd June 2019), rectify for the lacunas in your strategy.
  • If it was your last attempt or age limit crossed then also it’s not the end of the world, you’ll find your true calling in some other field. My best wishes to all of you.
