UPSC has brought several changes in the Engineering Services Examination from the year 2017. The commission has decided to introduce prelims and main examinations in ESE recruitment from 2017. The notification will be issued soon of the same.
The ESE examination will now be conducted for 1300 (previously is was for 1000 marks). The division of marks is as follows:
Preliminary Examination: 500 marks
Main Examination: 600 marks
