Keeping in view a large number of applications by the candidates and requests received from the candidates for changing their centres for both Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination and Indian Forest Service (Preliminary) Examination, the Commission has decided to give an opportunity to the aspirants to submit their revised choice of centre, said the official notification of UPSC.

Besides, the UPSC is also giving the aspirants the option to change the centres for both the examinations. The requests of the candidates for change in their centres will be considered against the additional/enhanced capacity intimated by the centres for accommodating the additional candidates.

The window of submitting the revised choice of centres by the candidates will be operational in two phases i.e. from July 7 to 13 and July 20 to 24 (06.00 PM) on the Commission’s official website-

The candidates are advised to visit the website and submit their choices of centres of the examinations if required.

"The candidates may please note that their requests for change in the centre will be considered based on the principle of "first-apply-first allot" basis, which is followed in all the Examinations of the Commission and was mentioned in the examination notices of the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination, 2020 and Indian Forest Service Examination, 2020] and once the capacity of a particular Centre is attained, the same will be frozen," read the official notification of the UPSC.

The candidates, who cannot get a Centre of their choice due to ceiling, will be required to choose a centre from the remaining ones, added the UPCS.
