This underlines the increasing representation of women in the field of judicial services.
The results have brought forth some outstanding achievements. Notably, 15 women have secured their positions among the Top 20 candidates in the results. Nishi Gupta from Kanpur has secured the first rank, followed by Shishir Yadav from Prayagraj in the second position and Rashmi Singh from Kasganj in the third position.
Swift Result Declaration
One striking aspect of this year's PCS (J)-2022 result announcement is the swiftness with which it was conducted. UPPSC has set a new record by declaring the results within a mere 48 hours after the conclusion of the interview round, which itself ended on August 28. This remarkable efficiency reflects the commission's dedication to streamlining the recruitment process.
The journey to these results was marked by a significant number of candidates. A total of 79,565 individuals had applied for the PCS (J)-2022 recruitment examination. Out of these, 50,837 candidates appeared in the preliminary examination, which took place on February 12.
