UPSC Civil Services Prelims Exam 2020: Civil services prelim exams, scheduled to be held on May 31, has been deferred, said UPSC today. As and when dates are decided for deferred tests, candidates will be given notice of at least 30 days, it added. The revised dates may be announced on May 20, as per the latest communication issued by the Commission. The UPSC today held a special meeting to review the situation after the second phase of the nation-wide lockdown due to COVID-19. In the meeting, the Commission decided that it will not be possible to resume examinations and interviews for the present. The dates for Indian Forest Service Exams have also been postponed.

“The Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination, 2020, scheduled to be held on May 31, 2020 therefore stands deferred. Since this examination also serves as the screening test for the Indian Forest Service Examination, the schedule for the Indian Forest Service Examination is also deferred,” the Commission said.

“The situation will be reviewed again on May 20, 2020 and fresh dates for these examinations shall be notified on the UPSC website in due course,” it added.

UPSC has already deferred the following: (a) Personality test for remaining candidates for the Civil Services Examination, 2019; (b) Notification for the Indian Economic Service/Indian Statistical Service Examination, 2020; (c) Notification for the Combined Medical Services Examination, 2020; (d) Notification for the Central Armed Police Forces Examination, 2020 and (e) the NDA & Naval Academy Examination, 2020.
