For the convenience of candidates, the district administration had arranged help centres to help candidates locate their exam centre.
Candidates who qualify the preliminary exam will be eligible to appear for the main exam. The computer based main exam will be held on July 18 and 19. "In case any paper of the Examination is held in different languages, the candidate has to choose the medium in which he/she wants to write the examination and the paper will be valued with reference to that medium only," said the Commission.
The Commission is likely to release an official answer key, against which candidates can raise objections. The final answer key will be based on the challenges submitted by the candidates. The result will be declared only after the answer key challenge submission procedure is completed.
