7. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF APPLICA-
TIONS :
Immediately on receipt of an application
from a candidate, the Acknowledgement
Card submitted by him/her alongwith the
Application Form will be despatched to him/
her by the Commission’s Office duly
stamped in token of receipt of his/her Ap-
plication. If a candidate does not receive
the Acknowledgement Card within 30 days,
he/she should at once contact the Com-
mission by quoting his/her Application
Form No. and name & year of examina-
tion. Candidates delivering the Application
Form in person at the Commission’s
Counter will be issued Acknowledgement
Card at the Counter itself. The mere fact
that a candidate’s application has been ac-
knowledged by the Commission does not
mean that his/her candidature for the ex-
amination has been accepted by the Com-
mission. Candidates will be informed at the
earliest possible about their admission to
the examination or rejection of their appli-
cation.
8. CORRESPONDENCE WITH THE
COMMISSION:
The Commission will not enter into any cor-
respondence with the candidates about their
candidature except in the following cases:
(i) Every candidate for this examination will
be informed at the earliest possible date of
the result of his/her application. Admission
Certificates, indicating the Roll Nos. will be
issued to the candidates who are admitted
to the examination. The Admission Certifi-
cate will bear the photograph of the candi-
date. If a candidate does not receive his Ad-
mission Certificate or any other communica-
tion regarding his/her candidature for the
examination three weeks before the com-
mencement of the examination, he/she
should at once contact the Commission. On
receipt of such a communication, Admission
Certificate or a duplicate copy thereto will be
issued to the admitted candidate. Informa-
tion in this regard can also be obtained from
the Facilitation Counter located in the
Commission’s Office either in person or over
phone Nos. 011-23381125/011-23385271/
011-23098543. In case no communication
is received in the Commission's Office
from the candidate regarding non-receipt
of his/her Admission Certificate atleast 3
weeks before the examination, he/she
himself/herself will be solely responsible
for non-receipt of his/her Admission Cer-
tificate. It may be noted that the Admission
Certificate will be issued at the address as
photocopied from the Application Form filled
in by the candidate. The candidate should,
therefore, ensure that address given by him/
her in the Application Form is correct and
complete with pin code.
No candidate will ordinarily be allowed to
take the examination unless he/she holds
a certificate of admission for the exami-
nation. On the receipt of Admission Cer-
tificate, check it carefully and bring dis-
crepancies/errors, if any, to the notice of
UPSC immediately.
The candidates should note that their ad-
mission to the examination will be purely
provisional based on the information given
by them in the Application Form. This will
be subject to verification of all the eligibility
conditions by the UPSC.
The mere fact that a certificate of admis-
sion to the Examination has been issued
to a candidate, will not imply that his/her
candidature has been finally cleared by
the Commission or that entries made by
the candidate in his/her application for the
Preliminary examination have been ac-
cepted by the Commission as true and
correct. Candidates may note that the
Commission takes up the verification of
eligibility conditions of a candidate, with
reference to original documents, only af-
ter the candidate has qualified for Civil
Services (Main) Examination. Unless can-
didature is formally confirmed by the Com-
mission, it continues to be provisional.
The decision of the Commission as to the
eligibility or otherwise of a candidate for
admission to the Examination shall be final.
Candidates should note that the name in the
Admission Certificate in some cases, may
be abbreviated due to technical reasons.
(ii) In the event of a candidate receiving
more than one Admission Certificate from
the Commission, he/she should use only
one of these Admission Certificates for ap-
pearing in the examination and return the
other(s) to the Commission's Office.
(iii) A candidate must see that communica-
tions sent to him/her at the address stated
in his/her application are redirected, if nec-
essary. Change in address should be com-
municated to the Commission at the earli-
est opportunity. Although the Commission
make every effort to take account of such
changes, they cannot accept any respon-
sibility in the matter.
(iv) Candidates are informed that as the
Preliminary Examination is only a screening
test, no marks sheets will be supplied to suc-
cessful or unsuccessful to be Confirmed can-
didates and no correspondence will be en-
tertained by the Commission, in this regard.
(v) If a candidate receives an Admission
Certificate in respect of some other candi-
date on account of handling error, the same
should be immediately returned to the
Commission with a request to issue the
correct Admission Certificate. Candidates
may note that they will not be allowed to
take the examination on the strength of an
Admission Certificate issued in respect of
another candidate.

tions (Objective Type) for the selection of

ten and Interview) for the selection of can-
didates for the various services and posts.

of two papers of Objective type (multiple
choice questions) and carry a maximum of
400 marks in the subjects set out in sub-
section (A) of Section-II. This examination
is meant to serve as a screening test only;
the marks obtained in the Preliminary Ex-
amination by the candidates who are de-
clared qualified for admission to the Main
Examination will not be counted for deter-
mining their final order of merit. The num-
ber of candidates to be admitted to the Main
Examination will be about twelve to thirteen
times the total approximate number of va-
cancies to be filled in the year in the various
Services and Posts. Only those candidates
who are declared by the Commission to

tion in the year will be eligible for admission
to the Main Examination of that year pro-
vided they are otherwise eligible for admis-
sion to the Main Examination.
3. The Main Examination will consist of a
written examination and an Interview Test.

qualifying marks in the written part of the

ing nature. Also see Note (ii) under para 1

ing. The number of candidates to be sum-
moned for interview will be about twice the
number of vacancies to be filled. The inter-
view will carry 300 marks (with no mini-
mum qualifying marks).
Marks thus obtained by the candidates in
the Main Examination (written part as well
as interview) would determine their final
ranking. Candidates will be allotted to the

ranks in the examination and the prefer-
ences expressed by them for the various
Services and Posts.

ernments alongwith his application for the
Main Examination.
NOTE 4 : (i) The concession admissible to
blind candidates shall not be admissible
to those suffering from Myopia.
(ii) The Commission have discretion to fix
qualifying marks in any or all the subjects
of the examination.
(iii) If a candidate’s handwriting is not eas-
ily legible, a deduction will be made on
this account from the total marks otherwise
accruing to him.
(iv) Marks will not be allotted for mere su-
perficial knowledge.
(v) Credit will be given for orderly, effective
and exact expression combined with due
economy of words in all subjects of the

culators at the conventional (Essay) type
examination of UPSC. Programmable type
calculators will however not be allowed
and the use of such calculators shall tanta-
mount to resorting to unfair means by the
candidates. Loaning or interchanging of
calculators in the Examination Hall is not
permitted.
It is also important to note that candidates
are not permitted to use calculators for an-
swering objective type papers (Test Book-
lets). They should not therefore, bring the
same inside the Examination Hall.
C. Interview test
The candidate will be interviewed by a Board
who will have before them a record of his/her
career. He/she will be asked questions on
matters of general interest. The object of the
interview is to assess the personal suitability
of the candidate for a career in public service
by a Board of competent and unbiased ob-
servers. The test is intended to judge the
mental calibre of a candidate. In broad terms
this is really an assessment of not only his
intellectual qualities but also social traits and
his interest in current affairs. Some of the
qualities to be judged are mental alertness,
critical powers of assimilation, clear and logi-
cal exposition, balance of judgement, vari-
ety and depth of interest, ability for social co-
hesion and leadership, intellectual and moral
integrity.
2. The technique of the interview is not that
of a strict cross-examination but of a natu-
ral, though directed and purposive conver-
sation which is intended to reveal the men-
tal qualities of the candidate.
3. The interview test is not intended to be a
test either of the specialised or general
knowledge of the candidates which has
been already tested through their written
papers. Candidates are expected to have
taken an intelligent interest not only in their
special subjects of academic study but also
in the events which are happening around
them both within and outside their own
state or country as well as in modern cur-
rents of thought and in new discoveries
which should rouse the curiosity of well
educated youth.
