Imphal, May 25: In the wake of demand for rescheduling of MPSC Prelim examination- 2016 over the confusion in the instruction prescribed in the answer booklet, some candidates have appealed Manipur Public Service Commission (MPSC) to arrange special exam only for those affected students, who have not genuinely received clarification in time.
Speaking to media persons during a press meet at Manipur Press Club here today, one of the candidate said that the instruction No 9 stated that there will be no penalty for wrong answer and mistakenly at the same time it also instructed that ‘there will be penalty for wrong answers marked by a candidate in the objective types questions papers’ causing a confusion among the candidates. It caused some confusion among the exam takers and invigilators. However, the confusion was timely clarified by MPSC authority through examination centers stating that there will be no penalty for wrong answer.
He also reminded that the notification of the examination also clearly stated that there will be no negative marking for attempting wrong answer in the objective types question papers.
Taking advantage of the typo, some candidates who took the test formed JAC and demanded authority to arrange the exam afresh, said the candidate, while adding that demand for rearrangement of such a high level exam after the key answer has been released is dubious as there might have some hidden agenda in their demand.
Another candidate who was also present at the press meet also appealed the authorities of centers where the examination was held to report to MPSC whether they receive instructions from the Commission in time clarifying over the confusion in the instruction.
He (the candidate) also said that re-conducting the examination will be disheartening as candidates need to prepare for the exam again and all the efforts given for the recently held MPSC Prelim examination would be futile.
