Combined Defence Services (CDS I) exam would be held on February 2. The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has released the admit cards for the exam. Candidates who had registered for the CDS I in November can download the admit card from the official website of the UPSC.
UPSC will conduct a written examination followed by an Interview for intelligence and personality test for shortlisted candidates. The admit card will be released three weeks prior to the written examination.
On the exam day, candidates should use black ball pen to fill the OMR sheet. “For writing in boxes, they should use black ball pen. Since the entries made by the candidates by darkening the circles will be taken into account while evaluating the answer sheets on computerised machines, they should make these entries very carefully and accurately,” reads the exam notice.
