Early Times Report
Jammu, Aug 24: Hitting headlines for numerous wrong reasons, Jammu and Kashmir Public Service Commission (JKPSC) has come up with yet another fiasco in the shape of 2018 KAS preliminary examination on the lines of UPSC, which has already created confusion among aspirants.
Talking to Early Times, couple of aspirations said that the JKPSC has adopted UPSC pattern for 2018 prelims, but the date sheet for the same has been announced during mains examinations 2016, which has created panic among the aspirants.
"The exam is scheduled to be conducted on 2nd of September 2018 on UPSC pattern. The notification for KAS 2018 Preliminary exam was announced at a time when the KAS 2016 mains exam were due to be held on 2nd of July," said aspirants, adding that this created a situation where the aspirants of the KAS 2016 Mains Exam were only left with 22 days to prepare for the KAS 2018 preliminary exam as their last paper was held on 8th August 2018.
They said that the KAS 2018 exam is entirely based on the UPSC pattern which includes CSAT and the minimum time required to cover the entire syllabus is 3-4 months. The aspirants also cited the example of UPSC where the central recruiting agency adopted the new pattern for civil services examination in a Gradual and Rational way.
"The UPSC adopted the new pattern in two phases. In the first phase in 2011, the pattern for preliminary exam was changed and in the second phase the pattern of the mains examination was changed in 2014," aspirants alleged and added that on one hand UPSC changed the pattern in a span of 4 years where as JKPSC changed the entire pattern in one stroke.
Many aspirants from Arts background have pointed that how an Arts candidate will prepare for the aptitude paper I.e CSAT in just 22 days.
The process of KAS 2014 and KAS 2016 exam was delayed by three years as there were issues and discrepancies surrounding the legitimacy of the Preliminary result. Aspirants have alleged that the incompetence of the commission turned the entire KAS 2016 exam into a mess. On one of the occasion the entire KAS mains exam was quashed midway in February, 2018 by an order of High Court. Candidates alleged that JKPSC conducted the mains examination in FEB knowing that the matter was Subjudice which resulted in quashing of the main examination.
The cumulative effect of the inefficiency of the commission is that it has lost its credibility.
The candidates have requested the Governor to intervene in this matter and postpone the Preliminary Exams to set the house in order.
