No Change in TSPSC Exam Pattern Now

There will not be any major changes in the pattern of competitive examinations held for recruitment to Groups I, II, III and IV, and several other services, the Telangana Public Service Commission has announced.

“Only a few minor changes will be made to the scheme of examination. The aspirants need not worry about it,” G.Haragopal, chairman of the Academic Committee of TSPSC said.

As rumours made rounds that TSPSC would replace the objective questions in Group-II examination with the descriptive ones as in Group-I exam, aspirants expressed concerns over the alleged proposal. However, the TSPSC dismissed the rumours and confirmed that no such proposal had been made by the academic committee.

Saying that it was too early to make such big changes, Haragopal assured that the examination pattern of Group-II would remain the same this year.

So far the committee has focused primarily on examination pattern and the changes to the syllabus will be discussed only after the scheme of examinations is finalised. However, M Kodandaram, a member of the committee, disclosed, “Probably, the new syllabus will be announced along with the job notification itself.”

As announced earlier, the chapters on literature, history, geography and economy pertaining to Andhra Pradesh in the existing syllabus will be replaced with those relating to Telangana. The academic committee, which met here on Thursday, said it had finalised its detailed report on the proposed changes and it would be further examined by the commission.

The academic committee, consisting of experts from various fields, has examined the existing recruitment process and found some loopholes in it. As the public service commission of united AP had faced criticism over the controversy of Group-I recruitment in 2012, the TSPSC is now keen on avoiding such problems in future.

Apart from proposing changes to the examination pattern and the syllabus, the academic committee is also of the opinion that the TSPSC had better issue the job notification at the earliest to fulfill the high expectations of unemployed youth in the state. Haragopal said that the committee members suggested the same to the commission at their previous meetings as well.
