    Re: Information regarding the Civil Service Exam

    The first part of the exam has now been renamed to CSAT. The pattern of the exam has been changes. It is now more an aptitude related test. It will be on the similar lines to the CAT and other entrance exams. There will be no changes in the general awarness section of this exam. Also no changes in the Mains exam. The rules also remain the same. You are allowed only 4 attempts to clear the exam. If you clear the CSAT and fail to clear the mains you will need to reappear for all the exams again. It is normally held in the month of June.

    There are only four attempts given and if you appear in even one of the papers, it is counted as an attempt. So one should be very careful while preparing. These exams generally take place in the month of April and May.
