"The results of the UPSC Prelim Exam held on August 24, 2014 are likely to be declared by October 18", a UPSC official is quoted as saying by media.

The UPSC results are normally declared OnLine on the commission's website. Once declared, they can be seen online on

The successful candidates will be allowed to appear for the Civil Services (Mains) written exams to be held in December 2014.

The preliminary examination has two papers of 200 marks each. The merit list of qualifying candidates for the Civil Services (Mains) examination is drawn by using the aggregate marks obtained in both the papers minus the maximum marks allocated to the questions on English language comprehension skills (i.e. those questions in Paper-II for which Hindi translation has not been given).

Visually impaired students are given 20 minutes extra per hour for both papers.

More than 4.5 lakh candidates appeared for the examination held on August 24.

A total of 9,44,926 candidates had applied for the examination but only 6,80,455 downloaded the admit cards. Out of almost seven lakh candidates, 4.5 lakh appeared for the test held at 2,137 centres in 59 cities across India.

This year's prelim exams were held after aspirants staged violent protests demanding scrapping of the Civil Service Aptitude Test (CSAT) introduced in 2011 and postponement of the examination.

The government later said the English comprehension in paper II of the examination will not be counted for merit and gradation, and allowed the 2011 aspirants to appear for examination in 2015.

The civil service examination is taken by students to get into the Indian Administrative Service, Indian Foreign Services and Indian Police Service.
