Enjoyed this simple method of knowing the exam date?
Remember, this is the easiest method of all to get the exam date, however, I recommend the beginners to follow the second method.
We shall see the second method.
Go through official notification
The most common mistake every applicant use to do is, they don’t look at official notification. Rather, they look for shortened information from any private blog.
Most relay on unofficial sites for information.
For such people, here is my question:
How if the date of exam is typed wrongly? (assume if such happens)
So it will always wise to choose official notification for all official information.
Now, you may probably ask the following questions:
- How can I download TNPSC Official notification?
- Where exactly is the exam date in official notification?
Well, you questions are answered below.
Assume you want to know the exam date for TNPSC Group 1 exam
- Now, head over to tnpsc official site
- Look for “Notifications” in homepage as shown in picture
- You can find it in right column of homepage
- Now move to “Latest Notification” menu appear below “Notification” bar. (Simply place your mouse to get these menu appear)
- Upon proceeding, you will now be in notification page
- Look now for TNPSC Group 1 service notification
- Click the highlighted notification and you will get a PDF file in return.
- The look for date of exam at the very first page as shown below.
- So, you got the date and time of examination: 8/11/15, (10 am to 1 pm)
The most important thing is, the date of exam can always be found from the first page of notification. However, it may change for some exams.
Also, we’ve seen, the date can always be found under the title “Important Dates”
Tip: You can also easily find it out (exam date) by ctrl+f shortcut function.
Never been to tnpscexams.net?
If you say you’ve never been to tnpscexams.net, then here is my advice for you.
Follow the step 1 as I said. It is one of the easiest method to grab your date of exam.
Enjoyed the part of how to get date of exam for TNPSC.?
Well, in your next application to TNPSC recruitment, you should never say you’re unaware of date of exam.
We shall move on to the next title.
#2. TNPSC Exam Qualification: Know it more comfortably
Before we go into the matter, I’ve a shocking news for you.
There are about 25% (average) of people who use to apply for all TNPSC recruitment not knowing what is the educational qualification.
The fun is:
In the recent TNPSC Assistant Engineers exam, there were about 37 rejected candidates for not having prescribed qualification.
Before then, there was no any specific category for rejected candidates from TNPSC
But now, TNPSC has started publishing the rejected candidates list.
The reason for 99% of rejections are for not having the required qualification.
This indicates, most candidates are machine-minded in applying for all TNPSC exam, not considering the qualification they actually asked for.
There are even some candidates who use to apply for the sake of attending the exam. They don’t have intention of getting pass but to test themselves how well they can perform without preparation.
Coming to the point.
These are the possible reasons for rejection.
As you can see, TNPSC Hall ticket page has “Rejection List” listed together with hall ticket list.
There are about 44 candidates rejected for not having prescribed qualification in Maternal and Child Health Officer exam.
All these convey us a message that it is mandate to check the education qualification in official notification.
It is always good to go through the notification twice to keep you from error and mistakes.
The educational qualification can be found from the second page of official notification. The picture here shows the educational qualification of Group 1 exam.
Have a deeper look at the “Note”
The board here says, the order of qualification should be 10th standard+12th standard+Degree.
So if a candidate, who only sees the “U.G” as qualification, who have educational qualification in order of 10th standard+Diploma+Degree applies, his application may likely be rejected.
This simply shows TNPSC board accepts applications only on having prescribed qualification.
Also make sure to read other physical fitness requirement in the mean time.
Many think that it is not that easy to get education qualification details from a 50-paged notification.
My answer would make you think different.
Educational qualification can be found mentioned in the very second page of official notification.
So, give up having negative thoughts
Download the official notification and have a look at page 2.
#3. TNPSC application form: The board accepts only online application
Let us see how application works:
About TNPSC application form
Still there are people who look for TNPSC application form.
But to your information:
TNPSC no longer accepts offline applications. The board revamped its recruitment procedures and modernized its processing methods according to current trend (But not to that extent, according to many)
So give up searching “application form” for any TNPSC recruitment.

#5. TNPSC Exam Hall Ticket: A skyrocket technique for Hall ticket on time
You might probably be wondering to know the skyrocket technique.
Here I’m to share with you this.
If you were my regular visitor, you might have seen me explaining this technique already.
I’m not going to keep these things within me.
Sharing is a good habit.
Here’s the interesting story before you can know the technique.
Many candidates, right after submitting application, start their hall ticket search on Google.
It is like casting net in the sea where there is no fish.
This must be avoided.
I’ve clearly explained here what you should do to get hall ticket.
TNPSC Hall ticket on time.
Good, you’re here with me to enjoy my tips.
Do you know? I consider this technique very important.
The thing is, hall ticket announcement date is hidden right inside the official notification.
Yes, let me go deeper.
Now look at the picture and its mark. What you can see is the exam date highlighted there.
Well, I prophesy the “hall ticket date”. It is 1st November, 2015
I’m not kidding.
Let me reveal this mystery.
Hall tickets are available usually one week before the exam date.
But, it is not the announcement date.
It is usual that Hall tickets are always available for candidates one week prior to the examination.
The same advice has been given in my previous post.
Finally my brethren, instead of worrying, be cool and visit the TNPSC portal seven days prior to the exam.

#7. TNPSC Exam Results: Knowing your result is like flying in the sky
My very first question for you is:
Have you ever kept you hall ticket after exam?
If yes, you’re cleaver.
And to those who says “no”, Common man, about 71% of candidates used to do this mistake.
They don’t care about their hall ticket after exam.
The most pathetic part is, they won’t save a copy of hall ticket in their mail. (Direct print out usually)
Application number is different from roll number.
In the above picture, the mail I received from TNPSC has only the application ID.In hall ticket, you could see, register number which is different from application ID.
So, it is clear that register number is mandate to check your result.
Application ID is worth nothing after exam. So safeguard your hall tickets after every exam.
How do you know the date of result?
Good, TNPSC results cannot be predicted.
The reason is:
- The board announced to be releasing result within three months from date of exam for AE exam.
- The same board had announced that VAO results will be released few months.
- When analyzing the intervals between exams and results( based on last four exams), it is unclear how board fixes the date of result.
One thing is certain, the board wants the results to be out within three months (analysis by its recent press releases)
Hope, you’ve all enjoyed my article on TNPSC exam. I’ll meet you again with interesting and informative article here. See you!
