APPSC conducted the Group 1 Mains exam from December 14 to December 20, 2020. The result (digital evaluation) for the mains examination was declared on April 28, 2021. However, the Group-I Mains result was set aside by the High Court of Andhra Pradesh as a bunch of petitions were filed against the digital evaluation of Mains answer sheets of candidates.
