Are we going to get an option to change the exam center for the upcoming UPSC NDA 1 (2020)?
kavita rani

Hi Rahit. No, its not possible. Candidates appearing for these exams can't make changes in the center once all the details are submitted. In case you have filled the form with wrong center and application date is still going, then candidates can make fresh filling of the application form and select a new center. But while doing this, candidates need to pay exam fee once again.
