This will be subject to verification of all the eligibility conditions by the UPSC. The mere fact that a certificate of admission to the IFS 2017 Examination has been issued to a candidate, will not imply that his / her candidature has been finally cleared by the Union Public Service Commission or that entries made by the candidate in his / her application for the IFS Preliminary examination 2017 have been accepted by the Union Public Service Commission as true and correct.

The decision of the Union Public Service Commission as to the eligibility or otherwise of a candidate for admission to the IFS Examination 2017 shall be final. Candidates should note that the name in the e-Admission Certificate for IFS Exam 2017 in some cases may be abbreviated due to technical reasons.

  2. In the event of a candidate downloading more than one e-Admission Certificate from the website of the Union Public Service Commission, he / she should use only one of these e-admission certificates for appearing in the IFS 2017 examination and report about the other(s) to the Union Public Service Commission Office.
