UPSC releases exam calendar for 2016. Civil Services (Main) exam on 3 December, 2016
The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has released the latest exam calendar for all the exams that will be conducted in the year 2016.
The UPSC conducts many competitive exams for recruitment to services and posts under the Union and states (i.e. all India services.) The first exam that will be held in 2016 will be the Combined Defence Services (CDS I) examination on 14 February, 2016. Usually the first exam every year is the Special Class Railway Apprentices’ examination (SCRA) held in January, but that exam does not figure in the 2016 UPSC time-table.
The Civil Services (Preliminary) 2016 exam will be conducted on 7 August, 2016 and the Main exam will be held on 3 December, 2016.
