The Commission had informed in May that a review meeting to discuss the COVID-19 situation and conducting other the pending examination will be held on June 5.

SSC on June 1 had released a tentative schedule for its pending examination and it had said that the exams will be conducted from August until October. UPSC is expected to follow a similar schedule.

The Commission had postponed the Civil Services preliminary examination along with the Indian Forest Services 2020 Preliminary exam. The exam was scheduled for May 31; however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was postponed.

Earlier the commission had said that it has to take into account the situation across the country as candidates have to travel to reach the exam centre. As long as the COVID-19 situation remains precarious in some parts, especially in metro cities, the Commission is unlikely to conduct the examination.
