This year, the exam pattern is likely to change. As per a report carried by the Times Of India in February, the Commission has decided to change it as the pattern of UPSC Civil Services exam. ‘For the first time, minus marking will be introduced at the prelims stage. At least 1/3rd of the total marks will be deducted for every wrong answer. Amendments have also been made in mains exam. Presently, there are two optional subjects in the mains but from PCS (mains)-2018, there will be only one optional paper. The total marks will also change accordingly, but the details regarding syllabus will be available only after the release of notification,’ TOI quoted the Secretary UPPSC saying.
With less than two months left for the exam, it is obvious that the UP PCS 2018 notification will be released soon. Candidates can check it at the official website uppsc.up.nic.in. The notification will also be published by regional and national dailies and the weekly edition of Employment News. As per reports, the notification will be released in June.
UP PCS, the State level equivalent of Civil Services, witnesses huge number of candidates registering for the exam.
