The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) announced the results of Indian Administrative Services (IAS) preliminary examination 2016. UPSC prelims 2016 result, IAS result (pre) were announced at the official website for the exam held on August 7. In a press note issued here, UPSC said that the result of the civil services examination 2016 have been announced and the roll numbers of the candidates who have qualified for the Mains examination have been provided in the PDF. Reportedly, 15,445 managed to qualify the UPSC prelims 2016 with success rate of less than 1%, as has been the trend ever since.
UPSC prelims 2016 result (IAS result pre 2016) came out yesterday even though earlier reports were that result is expected to be out in around 10 more days, but breaking it’s own records, UPSC declared the IAS 2016 result in just 40 days. According to the data received from the commission earlier, around 11.36 aspirants had applied for the exam in 2016, however, the turnout was poor as only around 55% actually took the written test held last month.
Our theory had suggested that UPSC will publish the results around 26th September but in a surprising move, the results were released today. A good day for the candidates indeed.
In it’s official notice, UPSC states that the candidature of these candidates (whose roll number is in the list) is provisional and all candidates are required to fill-in a Detailed application form (DAF) given on the UPSC website. The DAF (CSM) can be filled in between October 7 to October 20.
Now that UPSC IAS pre result 2016 has been announced, the candidates who cleared the examination would have to appear for the Main examination that will take place in December 2016. UPSC will conduct the mains exam from December 3rd. The e-admit cards for mains would be issued two weeks before the exam date.
It must be noted that today only the results are out and the marks, cut-off marks and answer keys of the screening test would be made available by the UPSC only after the final results are declared. The preliminary answer keys form some sources was released after the exam itself but official ones are awaited. The question paper has been uploaded on www.upsc.gov.in though.
