UPSC CSE Mains 2019 ended on 29-09-2019. The Main exam (written) is the 2nd stage of the 3-round UPSC Civil Services Exam Process. Now, only the Personality Test (Interview) is remaining.
When will UPSC Civil Services Mains 2019 results be announced?
This year, there is already a delay of around 25 days in publishing the UPSC CSE Mains results.
As of now, the expected date is around January 15th.
The reason for the delay in UPSC CSE Mains 2019 Results
Update as per newspaper reports: The result is delayed due to an ongoing case in the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) on EWS quota. There is a case pending before the CAT filed by UPSC aspirants connected with the EWS quota. CAT is expected to deliver its final verdict on January 9th, 2020 which should bring more clarity on EWS.
Once the CAT delivers the verdict, UPSC may publish the results taking into account different dimensions of the judgment. Aspirants can expect UPSC Mains 2019 results to be out on any date between January 9-15.
How much time will UPSC normally take to publish the Main Exam results?
UPSC usually takes only about 2.5 months to evaluate Mains answer sheets. Last year, UPSC published Mains results within 74 days. Going by that logic, Mains result was expected to be published between December 12-15, 2019.
However, this year, there is a delay in publishing the UPSC CSE Mains results.
Expected dates of UPSC CSE Interview/Personality Test (2019-20)
Personality Test of the successful candidates is likely to commence from February 10 2020.
You may note that this is an approximate estimation based on last year trends.
As there are around 2000+ candidates to be interviewed – 30 minutes per each candidate – UPSC may take around 50 days to complete the whole process of Interview.
Expected date of UPSC CSE 2019 Final Result
Around March 31.
Once the final results are published, UPSC will also release the mark list of all candidates who appeared for Prelims, Mains, and Interview in 2019.
