MPSC Subordinate Services Syllabus 2021

MPSC has relased the revised syllabus of the subordinate services exam, which is discussed here. MPSC Subordinate Services Exam Syllabus understanding is essential for clearing this exam. Maharashtra Public Service Commission conducts MPSC Combined Exam, also known as the MPSC Subordinated State Services Exam to recruit desired candidates for Group B and Group C posts. Here we have provided the latest syllabus of MPSC Subordinate Services Exam for prelims and mains.

Maharashtra Public Service Commission recruits officials by conducting various exams as recommended by various State Departments. One of the exams conducted by the Commission is MPSC Subordinate Services (Combined) Exam to recruit PSI, STI and ASO officers. The MPSC Subordinate Services (Combined) Exam is simpler and easier than the MPSC State Services Exam (also known as MPSC Rajyaseva Exam). The difficulty level is comparatively low for the following reasons:

  • One paper is conducted instead of two papers for the preliminary exam as in MPSC State Services Exam
  • Mains Exam is conducted separately, and only two Mains papers are conducted 
  • All papers are objective i.e., in MCQs
