UPSC has posted a Press Note clarifying that there won’t be any changes in exam pattern or syllabi. Notification for 2014 exam will be out next Saturday (31 May 2014)
There will be a group of miscreants who in the name of accessibility to ‘insider information’ keep spreading rumours just to disturb serious aspirants. This happens every year. This will happen as soon as this Prelims also (cut-off debate). If you are serious, don’t listen to any one. Have faith in UPSC and your own ability, and keep preparing for this exam.
On May 19 itself The Hindu had reported about this rumour saying that there won’t be any change in the present pattern. Still ‘vested interests’ kept spreading rumours.
Never believe any rumour unless you hear it from the UPSC itself.
Wish you all the best for the coming exams.
