SRINAGAR: Aspirants of Civil Services (Judicial) have appealed the Public Service Commission to postpone the examination of Jammu and Kashmir Civil Service (Judicial) Competitive Examination, 2017 that are beginning from May 25, because of the Ramadhan.
Aspirants said that it will be tiresome for them to appear in descriptive examination during Ramzan.
The candidates have to appear for six compulsory and six optional papers in forenoon and afternoon session.
“The exams will start at 9 am – 5pm and there is a gap of 2 hours in between. The schedule wouldn’t have bothered us if exams wouldn’t have been in Ramzan,” Mohammad Manan, an aspirant said.
Moreover aspirants from far flung area are facing timing issues. “How can one fare well in exams when they won’t get good time to sleep. If not postponed, but at least they should take one paper in a day.”
However, Shakeel ur Rehman, official spokesperson of Public Service Commission said that the schedule cannot be changed as it would affect other exams.
“No change at the 11th hour will be made because the whole process will get disturbed. The delaying in exams will create problem for aspirants as we are ready with the results of last year Judiciary exams that will be declared in coming days.” he said. “Our hands are tied as we have other exams to conduct and make selection on far track basis.”
