Ranchi,Oct,29:The eager wait of about sixty thousands applicant who appeared in the 4th JPSC Civil services examination may come to an end in coming week. The expert committee constituted by the JPSC for looking into the errors in the model answers released by the commission earlier, has presented its findings.
As per the sources close to the development, the expert committee has found the allegation to be correct and the JPSC is likely to include fresh names in its list of candidates who cleared the PT examination.
“We have received all reports by the subject experts appointed to evaluate the model answers given on the website on Friday. Almost all have found some kind of anomaly in the answers given earlier. Doubts existed in almost all the subjects. We are most likely to come up with a fresh set of results by the next week after proper evaluation of the findings,” said a senior JPSC official.
About 24 subject experts were approached by the JPSC to evaluate the errors raised by the failed applicants after the official answers were displayed on the JPSC site. The applicants claimed that several model answers were incorrect, thus affecting the final tally of marks scored and eventually the outcome of the JPSC 4th PT exam.
Ranchi high court is also hearing the matter along with other objections associated with examination including, repetition of questions, scaling method adapted by JPSC. The high court has fixed November 9 as the next date of hearing for this matter.
“Subjects such as history, geography and some others have as many as six to seven wrong answers. It will certainly affect the final tally and it is most likely that the fresh result will comprise new set of candidates. Our chairman (Shiv Basant) is looking forward for shorting out the matter speedily,” added the official.
Sources also revealed that the Ranchi high court was not satisfied with the reply submitted by the JPSC over the array of objections - citing repetition of candidates in the passed list, artificially raising scores based on scaling method, repetition of questions from UPSC previous year question and dubbing male as female.
