Sir i am doing final year of integrated pg course.. Am i eligible to apply for tnpsc group 1?

sir im b.com finished in distance education can i apply in group1?

Sir, I am preparing for tnpsc and tnpsc only... I am B.E engineering graduate and having two years experience in IT industry. What i want to know is, most of my friends and relatives are discouraging and confusing by saying that now a days tnpsc started to slow down its process in releasing its results. there is not much transperancy so u cannot trust tnpsc. start preparing for bank exams, banks are more trustable than tnpsc... i cant concentrate on my studies. all i want to know is if i sincerely work hard and get good marks can i get into tnpsc. pls help.

Friends and relatives will be confusing you till the result. This is not new . It happens to almost all Ias and tnpsc aspirants. They de motivate because of jelous . Br a successful person you have to overcome all these troubles. Nowa days TNPSC postings are filled up through sure and pure merit . So dont worry continue your race with full of confidence and hard work. All the best !

sir i got cut off for group2 prelims 150/200.i want to focus myself on group1 also.please guide me which i have to start study first either gr2 mains or gr1 prelims..kindly guide me, sir.

You can prepare both Group 2 Mains and Group 1 Prelims, unlike TNPSC Group 1 Mains which will have only descriptive questions, in Gr 2 mains you will have very less descriptive and more objective type questions. So it will be useful for Group 1 Prelims also. All the best !

thanks for the reply.
pls suggest me to clear the this exam in the first attempt itself.
what are books i should start preparing.I am English medium student. questions will be asked in tamil or both language.

thank u for ur guidance..please start ur test schedule online for group1&gr2mains earlier as possible sir.bcoz this website really helped me a lot to perform my gr2 prelims..

we can follow samacher kalvi text books for group 1 exam preparation its enough.

Dear Usha, I already mentioned that Samacheerkalvi books are only fundamental for all TNPSC Group Exams, for Group 1 exam you have to study some more books such as Indian Polity by Lakhsmi Kanth, etc.

Sorry for the late reply friend...... For one time registration - it is valid for 5 years . For Examination fee - bc candidates can avail only 3 free fee exemptions. For fourth exam onwards you should pay examination fee. If you have done the mistake don't worry, apply one more time with paying examination fee and use the second application for writing examination. If any doubt , contact tnpsc office
