UPSC Instructions for Civil Services Exam

New Delhi: The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has listed out the instructions for the upcoming Civil Services examination. Candidates appearing for the preliminary examination of the civil services on June 3 will not be issued a physical copy of their admit card but will have to download it and carry a printout with them to the examination hall.

In a statement with a list of do's and don'ts for candidates, the Commission said it had uploaded the e-admit cards on its website www.upsc.gov.in.

"Candidates are advised to download their e-admit cards and take a printout thereof. The admitted candidates will have to produce the printout of their e-admit card at the allotted venue for ... The examination," the UPSC said in the statement.

Here are the main instructions from the statement:

*If the photograph is not clear in the admit card, the candidate has to carry two identical photographs along with them to the examination center. Along with that, he/she needs to carry proof of identity such as an Aadhaar card, a driving license, passport or voter ID card and the printout of the e-admit card with an undertaking that the proof was genuine.

*Any discrepancy in the e-admit card should be conveyed to the Commission immediately by email (to uscsp-upsc@nic.In)

*Candidates are also advised to take a printout of their e-admit cards well in advance to prevent any last-minute rush or load on the website.

*Entry into the examination venue would be barred 10 minutes before the scheduled start of the test, that is at 09:20 AM for the forenoon session and 02:20 PM for the afternoon session.

*Candidates would not be allowed to sit for the examination at any other test venue than the one mentioned on their e-admit card.

*Candidates should carry black-inked ballpoint pens as they would be required to fill the OMR [optical mark recognition] answer sheets and attendance list with a black ballpoint pen only.

*Candidates may submit representations, if any, on questions asked in the preliminary examination papers to the Commission only through the "Online Question Paper

Representation Portal (QPRep)" by accessing http://upsconline.Nic.In/miscellaneous/QPRep/ in the period June 4-10, 2018.

*Candidates cannot carry with them mobile phone (even in the switched off mode), pagers or any electronic equipment or programmable device or storage media such as a pen drive, smart watches etc. Or camera or bluetooth devices or any other equipment or related accessories either in a working or switched off mode capable of being used as a communication device. Calculator were also banned inside the examination hall.

The civil services examination is conducted annually in three stages-- preliminary, main and interview-- to select officers for the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and the Indian Police Service (IPS), among others.
