Top 20 Books For UPPSC Preliminary Preparation

By Sashikanth

The Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) is all set to conduct the upper subordinate exam in the month of August. The exam is conducted for the highest job positions which are similar to the All India Services in the state. UPPSC has rolled out many changes in the exam that include the exam pattern.

With the introduction of negative marking in the preliminary exam, candidates should shift their preparation from objective to subjective orientation. The cut-off is also expected to fall this year because of the introduction of negative marking. Aspirants have to prepare for each subject meticulously, which is possible only through good study material and preparation books.
