The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) have announced the rescheduling of the Civil Services Examinations (CSE) 2024, originally slated for May 26, 2024. The Prelims exam will now take place on June 16.

This decision stems from the clash with the Lok Sabha elections, as announced by the Election Commission on Saturday, scheduled for April – June 2024.

The UPSC Civil Services Prelims 2024 exam dates have been revised to avoid this conflict. According to an official notice, "Due to the impending General Election schedule, the Commission has opted to defer the Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination – 2024, which also functions as the screening test for the Indian Forest Service Examination, 2024, from 26-05-2024 to 16-06-2024."

This year, the commission has advertised a total of 1,056 vacancies for CSE and 150 for IFoS.

The UPSC CSE exam comprises three stages — prelims, mains, and the personality test. The preliminary exam, consisting of objective-type questions, was initially scheduled for May 26. Candidates who score above the cut-off marks will qualify to register for the UPSC IAS Main examination.
