Jharkhand repeats last year’s question paper in administrative examsDecember 1st, 2008 - 4:04 pm ICT by IANS
Ranchi, Dec 1 (IANS) The Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) is under close scrutiny after the question paper of one of the subjects in its main examination was found to be same as given last year.The question paper was repeated in the Labour, Social and Welfare (LSW) subject Sunday. Not only the questions but also the serial number of the questions were the same.
The students appearing for the examination raised objections to the question paper. However, JPSC officials said that new questions were prepared for the 2008 main examination.
“There is a trend that previous year’s question paper is not repeated. It is not that one question is repeated… rather all the questions have been repeated in the LSW subject,” complained a student.
Chairperson of JPSC Dileep Prasad said: “We are reviewing the question papers. If needed, we will cancel the LSW paper and conduct a fresh examination for the subject.”
According to sources, JPSC is holding a meeting Monday.
