Keeping in view the large number of candidates of the Civil Services Prelims Examination, 2020 and requests received from the candidates for changing their Centers, the Commission has decided to give an opportunity to aspirants to submit their revised choice of Centre.

Besides the option to change the Centers for the Civil Services (Main) Examination, 2020 and the Indian Forest Service (Main) Examination, 2020 is also being made available to the candidates. The requests of the candidates for change in their Centers will be considered against the additional/enhanced capacity intimated by the Centers for accommodating the additional candidates.

The UPSC informed that the window of submitting the revised choice of Centers by the candidates will be operational in two phases i.e. 7th-13th July, 2020 (06.00 PM) and 20th-24th July, 2020 (06.00 PM) on the Commission’s website - upsconline.nic.in.

The Centers will be considered based on the principle of "first-apply-first allot" basis and once the capacity of a particular Centre is attained, the same will be frozen. The candidates, who cannot get a Centre of their choice due to ceiling, will be required to choose a Centre from the remaining ones.

In addition to the above, the Commission will also make a Withdrawal Window available to the candidates on the Commission’s website -upsconline.nic.in during the period from 1st-8th August, 2020.
