Ready to go “ALL IN”?

Let’s GO.

Chapter 1: TNPSC Group 2 posts

We interacted with many students in past and found that different students have different aspirations.

If you are

  • a fresher based in TN and aspiring for a good but relatively easy govt job
  • or a future UPSC/ Group-I candidate who wants to land a govt job for now
  • or a Group 2 candidate who just started

you’ll love to see how many vacancies are waiting.

Those who are quite familiar and preparing midway, you may skip to the next section.

1.1 What is TNPSC Group 2 exam?

The government of Tamil Nadu appoints eligible candidates through TNPSC (Tamil Nadu public Service Commission). But officers at different ranks require different skill sets.

For that matter, TNPSC categorized the exam into 8 groups.

The Group 2 exam is for an entry into Subordinate service, Ministerial service and Secretariat services of the Tamil Nadu state.

These are the 2nd most premium govt jobs in the state after group-I but much easy to crack.

Number-wise, it fills most vacancies every year.

A SMART preparation can easily walk you in through the exam.

1.2 Posts

TNPSC appoints in 51 posts through Group 2.

Selection happens in any of the 2 manners.

1.2.1 TNPSC group 2 Interview Posts

For 33 posts, TNPSC holds

  • a written prelim,
  • a written main and
  • and an interview.

These 33 posts are called TNPSC Group 2 Interview Posts.

1.2.2 TNPSC Group 2 Non-interview Posts

For other 18 posts, only 1 written exam is held.

Candidates are selected based on the marks obtained in the exam alone. These 18 posts are Non-interview posts (Group 2A).

The interview posts offer more premium jobs compared to Non-interview posts.

**(Many websites claim more posts under TNPSC group 2. But TNPSC officially posted the numbers in their publication.)

1.3 Posts Salary Details

  • the Interview posts salary and
  • non-interview post salary separately in 2 tables below.

We included, the Department name also to give you a rough idea of the job responsibility.
