New Delhi, 24 February 2023 – UPPSC Mains 2023 Exam – The Uttar Pradesh government has changed the Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) 2023 Mains exam pattern. Two General Knowledge (GK) papers about the state have replaced optional subjects in the examination.
The decision was made at a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on 22 February 2023.
The exam is set to take place offline in 21 cities across the state on 23 September 2023, with over 4 lakh candidates expected to take part. Previously, an optional subject was mandatory in the UPPSC Mains exam, giving candidates from science backgrounds an edge over those from arts.
A row erupted following the 2018 UPPSC exam, in which approximately 50% of the selected candidates were from outside the state. Some candidates’ chances were harmed because of the scaling process, which adjusted their marks in subjects like mathematics to make them comparable to students who take history or other “lower scoring” subjects.
Calls for the removal of optional subjects gained traction subsequently.
