UPSC has postponed Personality Test which was being conducted as part of civil services exam 2019 until further notice due to prevailing grim situation created by COVID-19 pandemic. We think this situation will continue till at least April 15th. We don’t think Prelims – 2020 will be postponed. – unless overall situation in India normalises by first week of May. It all depends on the severity of next stage of COVI-19 i.e. community transmission (let’s pray that people, especially celebrities, stay at home and don’t attend parties)
Those who were about to give personality test should start focusing on Prelims – 2020 (irrespective of their chances of clearing this exam).
You can also work more on DAF and gain more confidence. We understand that the uncertainty will be a worrisome factor – however, you should know that every situation you face comes with an opportunity of its own. Here the opportunity s to prepare both for prelims and interview without wasting any time further.
We wish you all the best. And we hope that India won’t face any severe situation. Let’s all listen to government and maintain strict social distancing. Stay at home and maintain daily your own Individual Janta Curfew till you give your interview and prelims.
