SSC-CGL Question Paper Shortage: Unrealistic Assumption Failed


On 8th August, students were not able to attend SSC-CGL Exam because of lack of question papers in the centers. It was an absurd assumption from Staff Selection Commission that “around 70% of students would appear for exam out of total registered.”

It sounds illogical that students were not able to attain exam because of lack of question papers in the test centers. SSC-CGL Exam which was conducted on 8th of August faced the problem of question paper shortage. Staff Selection Commission (conducting authority) put a thought that out of total no of registered applicants only 70% students would appear and hence only that much question paper were supplied to the respective centers. Students who came from different region to test centers were not allowed only because the numbers of question papers were not equivalent to the applicants. A huge kiosk took place on the examination centers but there was no way out for students so they just have to skip their attempt. Applicants were very highly disappointed because of the such assumption by SSC (which is one of the well-known government institutes); students are still expecting a right decision so that this issue is handled.

Now Staff Selection Commission must find out some solution to tackle this problem that would be at par solution for both applicants and conducting authority.

Student’s comments:

Mandeep Deswal said that, “It’s highly disappointing to witness this kind of an attitude from such a reputed organisation like the Staff Selection Commission. I had come all the way from Rajasthan to appear for this test. There was barely any shelter to save myself from the rain and it becomes really disheartening when you are sent back. I hope that the SSC extends better ways to tackle such issues so that individuals like me do not suffer.” – Source: IndiaToday

Sunil Kaushik says “I had come all the way from Hisar (Haryana) to appear for my examination. It has been raining miserably since morning. Even then I managed to reach the centre somehow. But I was not allowed to sit for the exams because I was told that the question papers fell short. I don’t come from a rich family and managing the travelling expenses to make it to Delhi was tough for me. This is highly irresponsible on part of the SSC. Who will be paying for the loss of my travelling expenses? Candidates like me should definitely get compensation.” – Source: IndiaToday
