Hi friends. Many aspirants think of instructions given along with the e-admit cards as mundane words only to be ignored. But they contain obvious but important rules of the game UPSC. So, without much ado I’m posting the instruction and highlighting the most important ones for the sake of convenience.


Important Instructions

  1. Mention your Name, Roll Number, Registration ID and Name & Year of the Examination in all the correspondence with UPSC.
  1. Bring this e­Admit Card in each session to secure admission to Examination Hall.
