UP PCS result 2019: Women's impressive show continues
LUCKNOW [Maha Media]: While a woman candidate secured the third rank in the recently declared results of combined state/upper subordinate services examination-2019, commonly known as PCS exam, scrutiny shows that this year's success graph of the fair sex is in line with the steady rise that has been witnessed in the past few years. The Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) declared the results of PCS-2019 on Wednesday (February 17).
Of the total 434 candidates declared selected in PCS-2019, 128 (or 29.49 per cent) are women candidates with 13 of them bagging the coveted posts of deputy collectors of which there were just 46 posts on offer this time, UPPSC officials share.
What makes the achievement all the more special this time is the fact that in PCS-2019, the total number of posts was much lesser than those in the previous five PCS recruitment exams.
In PCS-2017, 181 women had bagged selection against 676 posts on offer amounting to 26.77 per cent—the best in at least four PCS recruitment exams held earlier. In PCS-2013, 122 women were selected against 654 posts on offer amounting to 18.65 percent while in PCS-2014 also, 114 women had tasted success against 579 posts available amounting to 19.68 per cent.
