SSB Interview New Dates : SSB Interview Postponed!

Before talking about SSB Interview New Dates, Let us see Notice from Official website of Indian Army “

SSB Interview Postponed

From this Official Notification of Indian Army, it is clear the All the SSB Interviews till 15th April are postponed. But as per my opinion, SSB Interviews of all entries are likely to be postponed even further by minimum 1 month (considering the current COVID-19  Outbreak in India)

We will update you with “New SSB Interview Dates” as soon as it will be announced on official website.

NDA 1 2020 Exam New Date: NDA Exam Postponed!

As per Notification released on official website, that is, ““, NDA 1 2020 Exam is differed or postponed till further notice.

NDA Postponed
NDA 1 2020 Exam Original Date: 19th April 2020
NDA 1 2020 Written Exam New Date: Not Yet Released

We will update you with the “New Dates of NDA 2020 exam” as soon as it will be updated on official website of UPSC.

NDA 1 2020 Exam and NDA 2 2020 Exam can also be conducted together if lockdown exceeds for too long time! (Means NDA 1 2020 can also be cancelled!)

Can CDS 2 2020 Exam and AFCAT 2 2020 Exam be postponed?

(This question may seem funny to many aspirants, but still read the upcoming 4-5 lines carefully)

CDS 2 2020 Exam and AFCAT 2 2020 Exam will be conducted in November month. Its very difficult for these exams to get postponed. But if previous UPSC Exams like Civil Services Prelims & Mains Exam, CSE 2019 Interviews, CAPF Exam and NDA Exam are postponed (Which are expected to be conducted around June/July), then AFCAT and CDS can also be postponed.

CDS and AFCAT Exams are conducted twice in a year, which means that AFCAT and CDS Exam will again be conducted in February. So, UPSC may consider cancelling these exams of November and conducting exam in February (Which are just 2 months far). This can be possible because UPSC will have pressure to conduct the previous exams which are conducted only once in a year!

Also, CDS 1 2020 and AFCAT 1 2020 SSB Interviews are pending (not even started!). So, decision can be taken to complete the SSB’s and then conduct the written examinations.

(This may seem hypothetical, but who ever thought that SSB Interviews can also be postponed? So, lets be prepared for any situation that comes infront of us!)

CDS 2 2020 Exam Important Dates:

CDS 2 2020 Exam Original Date: 8th November 2020
CDS 2 2020 Written Exam New Date: Will Update Soon

AFCAT 2 2020 Exam Important Dates:

AFCAT 2 2020 Exam Original Date: November/ December 2020
AFCAT 2 2020 Written Exam New Date: Will Update Soon

UPSC Civil Services Exam Prelims Postponed or Not?

UPSC CSE 2020 Prelims is scheduled on 31st of May 2020 and there is no official notification about exam being postponed. But many aspirants are asking questions like “IAS Prelims 2020 will be postoned or not?

Let us do a simple analysis. Whole Country Lockdown announced is upto 21st of April 2020 (Just 21 Days!). And considering the current situation of COVID-19 Pandemic, it is expected to extend atleast by 39-45 Days (Even you might have guessed this scenario). So, in such a case, it will be difficult to conduct IAS Prelims on 31st May 2020 (Moreover, NDA exam and UPSC CSE 2019 Interviews are prending!)

So, as per my prediction, IAS Prelims 2020 will be postponed by atleast 30 Days!

(Just stay relaxed and focus on your preparation. We will update you with IAS Prelims 2020 Exam New Date as soon as it will be announced by official sources)

UPSC CSE Prelims 2020 Original Date: 31st May 2020
