UPPCS 2019 Prelims Exam clashes with CSIR UGC NET, Candidates in a fix
NEW DELHI, OCTOBER 19: Candidates preparing for the Uttar Pradesh Provincial Civil Service (UP PCS) and the CSIR UGC NET will have to choose between the two and attempt just one. The National Testing Agency (NTA), which conducts the National Eligibility Test, or NET, and UP Public Service Commission have announced the same date, December 15, 2019, for their tests. Earlier it was speculated that since the UP PCS notification 2019 was not yet released, the commission might change the date for the commencement of the prelims stage of exam. However, the commission released the notification on October 16, 2019 and put an end to rumours of delay. Now there are many candidates who appear in both these exams every year and they are disheartened and confused.
