This is the first time that PET was conducted, even though results are still awaited so most of the people are not aware of this exam and most people don’t know about the UPSSSC PET Exam. Here, in this article I will probably share the complete information available about the PET exam. 

The PET exam was conducted on 24th August 2021.

What is the UPSSSC PET Exam?

The full form of the PET exam is the Preliminary Eligibility Test. Uttar Pradesh Subordinate Service Selection commission conducts Preliminary Eligibility test(PET) for the selection of group ‘C’ and group ‘B’ posts. Candidates who clear the exam, will be shortlisted for the upcoming examinations of group ‘B’ and ‘C’.

The marks scored by the students in PET are valid for a year after declaration of the results. Candidates will be called for main examinations for various vacancies based on their score on the PET exam. The mode of the exam is offline.

UPSSSC Two-Tier Examination System

UPSSSC has proposed a two-tier examination system for upcoming exams because the list of candidates is too long for limited posts.

  • Tier 2 – Mains Exam/Skill Test/ Physical Test

The merit list of the candidate will be made on the basis of the PET exam and the candidates will be shortlisted for the Main exam.

So, prepare all the topics.

For current affairs, you should make a habit of reading newspapers daily and especially the editorial column. You will cover most of the current affairs from newspapers. You should have knowledge of the syllabus also. Without knowing the syllabus you can not study proper.if you can study by yourself, it’s well and good otherwise join a good coaching for help. And the last thing is self confidence. Self confidence is the key to success. 

So, do your best and study hard.

Transparency of the exam 

As I was the invigilator in one of the centers in Agra district, I was really impressed that there was no chance of mistake in conducting the exam and they followed the transparency also. At the time of entry, students were asked to check. There were different rooms for girls checked by female staff. Before distributing the question papers, we were asked to show the seal of the envelope in which the question papers were kept. We showed the seal to the students to make sure that the center had followed the privacy of the exam. We are 2 invigilators in a classroom. After that we called 2 students randomly and took their signatures that the envelope is sealed. So, I can say I am the witness of transparency that is followed by the center for the PET exam.

Additionally, All the classrooms at all centers were monitored by CCTV surveillance which were connected with control rooms for monitoring by high authorities in Lucknow.
