Re: IES and PSU exam Preparation

The exam is going to be held form 15th June 2012 to 17th June 2012. Here is the detailed information on which date the papers will be held.
  • 15 June 2012 : General Ability Test
  • 16 June 2012 : Objective Paper I & Objective Paper II
  • 17 June 2012 : Conventional Paper I & Conventional Paper II

I cannot say the exact date of the PSU examination. The PSU exams are conducted between the month of March and November. The examination of each candidate is based on their current project. It varies from time to time. You can check the schedule on the official website. The schedule is updated every month.
