The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) usually holds several examinations throughout the year. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, several exams have been postponed, delayed or application submission dates extended.
All these postponements and extensions have created a lot of confusion among the candidates. Meanwhile, UPSC has released its revised exam programme for this year.
