The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has issued a new notification for its upcoming Prelims Examination set to be conducted on 2 June.
As per the notification available on the official website [PDF], the candidate name needs to be the same as his/her name present on the School Leaving Certificate. This name will then appear on the e-Admit card required during the prelims exam.
For the candidates who have changed their names after leaving school via the route of Gazette Notification and other legal avenues, though need not worry.
UPSC has clarified that such candidates need to carry the original Gazette Notification of the name change during each exam session. It should be noted that the name on the gazette notification and the id card should be the same. They would also have to sign an undertaking during the exam.
They would also have to carry the e-admit cards and a government photo-identity card like other candidates.
The candidate would also need to upload a government issued photo-identity card at the time of form fill-up.
