    Dear Guest,



    The scheme of upsc examinations usually includes, preliminary, and/or main examination followed by an interview for personality test.

    The application form is common for all the examinations but the eligibility conditions and other details may vary. Also, one has to submit separate forms if he/she wants to appear in more than one examination.

    I hope the above information will help you to understand the scheme of upsc examinations.




    THANK YOU.
