Chennai: Following large scale malpractices unearthed in the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC) examinations, the commission has brought few more changes in the examination pattern, said an official release

In the recent days the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission has been bringing about various changes in the examination process after several malpractices were unearthed, following which it had brought out few changes on 7, Feb, 2020 and now through a release on 15, Feb, 2020 it has said about few more changes to be brought out after a committee headed by the chairman decided after serious deliberation.  

First of all, the Group IV and Group 2A, exam now will be  conducted in two phases- preliminary and main exam as earlier that had just a general knowledge paper.

Then, the timings for the exam have also been changed. The candidates will now have to report at 9 am instead of 10:00 AM for the exam which will be held between 10 am and 1 pm. Those arriving after 10:00 AM will not be permitted to appear for the exam. Additional 15 minutes will be provided after the exams to fill mandatory additional informations.  In-case examinations are to be held both in the morning and noon session, the afternoon session examination will start at 3:00 PM

Henceforth, candidates will have to attend all the questions. In-case, unable to answer a question, an option ‘E’ will be provided to be shaded apart from the regular answer of A,B,C and D for the objective type questions. The candidate has to consolidate the total number of unanswered questions at the end of examination for which the additional 15 minutes is provided. Question paper of the candidate failing to mark even one unattended question with ‘E’ will not be considered for evaluation. The answer script will be made untraceable by tearing off the page containing candidate’s details in the presence of the candidate in the examination hall with attestations from few candidates.

Further, candidates have to provide their left thumb fingerprint instead on signature on the answer script.

Next, to ensure safe transfer of answer scripts to the commission's office from the examination centers, TNPSC has decided use GPS and CCTV surveillance that will be be monitored from a control room.  

Finally, TNPSC will soon provide an option on its website for candidates to pass-on any information to the commission, said the release from secretary, TNPSC.   

It may be noted that, a huge scam rocked the TNPSC recently.
