How to Apply for TNPSC Group 2 Mains Exam?
TNPSC stands for the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission. TNPSC conducts exams and interviews to recruit candidates for vacancies and posts in the departments of Tamil Nadu. If you wish to be a public servant working for the Tamil Nadu Government, you must attend the exams conducted by TNPSC.
Every year, the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC) organizes the Group 2/2A exams to recruit officials for the Tamil Nadu State Government. Since its inception in 1929, the TNPSC has been operating as an autonomous body under the state government.
It aims to select candidates who want to work in the state’s civil service. The commission oversees these exams for various positions, including the administrative officer, assistant system engineer, and village district educational officer. The candidates are chosen through multiple non-interview and interview roles with TNPSC group 2/2A.
If you are applying for TNPSC, you need to complete the one-time registration first. Aspirants for TNPSC One-Time Registration must pay a prescribed registration fee online to complete the registration process.
Now, a point to remember here is that the eligibility criteria for every post are different, and you need to apply accordingly. Also, the selection process is different in every case, so you need to keep that in mind as well when applying for TNPSC Group 2/2A.
TNPSC conducts the TNPSC exams every year. Candidates can find the annual TNPSC calendar containing the schedule for various TNPSC Exams on the official website of TNPSC, which contains the name of the TNPSC exams along with the official expected dates.
