APPSC cancels degree college lecturers examination as Question Papers Fail To Reach Centre On Time

The Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) on Sunday cancelled its degree college lecturers examination after question papers for the same could not reach the examination centres in Hyderabad on time.

Over 5,000 candidates who had turned up to write the examinations at the various centres in the city ended up staging protests blaming APPSC officials for the shoddy manner in which they had gone about holding the test.

While the examination was originally slated to be held between 10am to 12.30pm on Sunday,officials rescheduled it for 11.30am after they realised that the question papers would not reach the city on time.
However,after the question papers failed to arrive in time for the rescheduled slot,APPSC authorities announced that Sundays exam stood cancelled.The question papers,which had been dispatched by air from an undisclosed location and were being ferried by a private airline,could reach the city only at 11.30am due to a delay.

While the package itself was supposed to be delivered on May 5,that is,a day before the exam,APPSC was unable to send the consignment via road or rail,which is the usual practice,till May 4.Hence,the cargo had to be shipped by flight on the day of the exam.

Interestingly,only a part of the consignment could ultimately reach the city as the airline had off-loaded a major chunk of the cargo at the point of dispatch due to heavy load.Several bundles of question papers reached the city via another flight at around 1pm.

Curiously,candidates who were to take the exam at centres in Tirupati,Vijayawada and Vizag had,a week back,been reassigned by APPSC to the Hyderabad centre.The reason behind the transfer was not revealed to the candidates.

Students blamed APPSC for not sharing with them the news of the delay.We were made to wait for over three hours in front of the examination centre before we were told that the test had been cancelled.
The commission has once again proved that they are ill-equipped to conduct state service examinations, a candidate said,pointing out how degree college posts were being notified after a gap of eight years.
We expected APPSC to be more responsible than this, said the candidate.

Meanwhile,some of the candidates from outside the city have demanded that the commission pay them compensation.We spent a lot of money on travel and boarding just to write this examination.The commission should now pay us compensation, said a student.

The commission has announced that the revised dates for the examinations would be announced later this month.
