Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC) has today, February 25, 2022, announced the RAS Mains 2022 new exam dates. The announcement has also been made public, on the official website rpsc.rajasthan.gov.in. Accordingly, the Rajasthan Administrative Services (RAS) Mains Exam 2022 is all set to be conducted on March 20 and 21, 2022. Candidates who have qualified the preliminary stage will be issued new admit cards soon. So, the hall tickets issued in February 2022 are not applicable.
Previously, the RAS RPSC Mains 2022 examination was scheduled for February 25 and 26, 2022. However, after a high-level meeting organised by the state commission, the second stage was postponed.
Expected Date for RPSC RAS Mains 2022 Admit Card Release
Looking at the previous-year trends, RPSC usually releases the admit cards around 7-10 days prior to the exam. So, the RAS Mains 2022 admit card is likely to release between March 11-14, 2022. By taking the average of days, candidates can expect their hall tickets to come out on February 12, 2022. They will be issued through the online mode, on the official website rpsc.rajasthan.gov.in.
Following is a table summarising the sequence of events that took place in 2021, 2018, and 2016. The table also shed light on the previous dates for RPSC RAS 2022 mains exam schedule and release of admit cards.
