APPSC Group-I Exam Previous Year Question Papers

Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) conducts various competitive examinations and departmental tests for the state of Andhra Pradesh.

The APPSC Group-I exam is conducted in 3 phases i.e.

  1. Screening Test (Written exam- Objective type)
  2. Mains (Written exam- Descriptive type)
  3. Interview

In 2021, the Government of Andhra Pradesh decided to abolish interviews for Group I services and all other competitive examinations conducted by APPSC henceforth. Therefore, the upcoming Group I examinations will no longer have interview or personality tests. Hence, if a candidate aims to pass the Group-I examination, then he/she must completely focus on the Mains component.
