Uttar Pradesh is gearing up to host the Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) Preliminary Eligibility Test (PET) on October 28 and 29, 2023. With approximately 20 lakh eager candidates set to participate in this significant examination, the state administration has made a thoughtful decision to ensure a seamless process.

To minimize disruptions and create a conducive environment for exam takers, school classes will be temporarily suspended for two days in 35 districts across Uttar Pradesh. This proactive measure takes into account the likelihood that some educational institutions might serve as authorized test centers for the UPPSC’s Preliminary Eligibility Test (PET) 2023.
