When Was The First Upsc Exam

In The Beginning Of The British Rule, The East India Company Used To Choose The Administrative Officers In India.

Administrative Officers Were Trained At Haileybury College, London.

In 1854, It Was Recommended To Remove Recruitment From The East India Company And Appoint Civil Service Officers Through Competitive Examination.

The Civil Service Commission Was Formed In 1854 Itself.

Competitive Examination Was Started In 1855, Then The Examination Was Conducted Only In London.

The Maximum Age Limit For The Exam Then Was 23 Years

At That Time The Syllabus Of The Exam Was Such That Only Europeans Could Get Maximum Marks.

That'S Why No Indian Could Pass This Exam For The First 9 Years
