    This is an overkill and low RoI thing. 2 baat IYB padhne tak optional kaa ek paper taiyaar ho jaayega
    वो दया का भाव.. या कि शौर्य का चुनाव .. या कि हार का वो घाव..
    तुम ये सोच लो ..
    या की पुरे भाल पे जला रहे विजय का लाल .. लाल यह गुलाल..
    तुम ये सोच लो ..
    रंग केशरी हो.. या मृदंग केशरी हो.. या कि केशरी हो ताल ..
    तुम ये सोच लो ..

  • How does UPSC allocate centres. Is it first come first serve basis? or Random?
    Does the one who applies first get good centre?

    No bro it's totally random process of allocating exam centre. There is no guarantee that you will get UPSC as centre if you submitted form ea

    It's kinda true I guess. Last year me and my friend got our Centers in UPSC Bhavan, our Roll numbers were in the range 1900. This year we got in RK Ashram Marg and our roll numbers were in the range 3000.

    It's not written in the notification but UPSC will ask you to mention the date on your OBC certificate while applying for Prelims. If it's older than 2 years (not sure if its 3 years), it wont be accepted. I mean you cannot input the details if its older than 2-3 years.

    Bhai... I dont gave degree certificates... I mean convocation one... Will get it on jan 2018... But I COMPLETED GRADUATION in 2016. I have marks sheet of all semesters...

    For students in final year, degree certificate should be presented only at time of interview na? But I am already a graduate. So will the same rule apply for me too?

    This is bothering me...Please guide about this!
    Thanks.

    Earlier it used to be like that. Starting roll nos. got UPSC exam halls in mains. And they are quite comfy indeed.
    So, everyone scrambled to fill the form in the first hour itself after opening of online link.

    But UPSC got a whiff of it. For past 2 years - 2015 & 2016 - UPSC is giving Dholpur House to roll numbers in the fag end. Above 6 lakh.

    So, now it's all a matter of luck - the most defining parameter of the game called UPSC.
