APPSC Group 1 Mains exam re conduct is possible in current state position?
The Supreme Court on 07th October directed the AP Public Service Commission, APPSC to re-conduct the Group-I Mains exam of May 27, 2018, due to the errors in question papers. APSPSC is not taken a decision yet of conducting Group 1 Mains, it will be taken after review the Court orders. If Apspsc decides to re-conduct Group 1 Mains exam, they need to issue new Group 1 Mains qualifiers list soon.
The Supreme Court bench directed the Appsc to delete six erroneous questions from the preliminary exam question paper and prepare new Group 1 Mains qualifiers list to re-conduct the test. In 2018 The APPSC had shortlisted 16,426 students for Mains. In September, it selected an additional 1,201 students, following protests from candidates who failed to make it due to “translation errors” from English to Telugu in the prelims question papers.
Appsc conducted the Group 1 Mains exams in October 2018. So many candidates appealed to the Supreme Court that there were more errors and the APPSC should delete those questions and release the revised selection list.
The apex court gave this order after hearing the petitions of APPSC, the state government and some of the selected candidates who wanted the court to suspend the order of the AP HC which found the way the selection was conducted defective in respect of four questions.
The Supreme Court bench directed the APPSC to delete the six defective questions from the preliminary question paper and reconduct the exercise. After deleting the questions, the authorities have to finalize a fresh list of selected candidates for Group 1 Mains exam.
We will update the APSPSC Group 1 Mains qualifiers new list and Group 1 Mains exam Hall tickets info (if Appsc ready to conduct Group 1 Mains exam) soon at https://psc.ap.gov.in.
