Under the government scheme of public disclosure of UPSC marks, which came into force in 2017, more than 6,000 candidates have agreed to share their scores in public. In this scheme, the UPSC suggests candidates, who have cleared an exam conducted by it till the last stage, to opt for sharing their marks in public.
The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) considers such candidates as good employable candidates. "Appearing in the Interview (the final stage of the Commission's Examinations) indicates itself about the skill level and capabilities of such candidates," it had said during the launch of this scheme.
The main objective of this scheme is to provide a useful database to other employers to enable them to identify good employable candidates.
The marks are available online, in the website of UPSC, for a year.
