‘Mass Copying’ in SSB Exams: Jammu Aspirants Demand Re-Examination

Dawood Bashir



The written examination for graduate level posts which was conducted by Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) on Friday has come under scanner after mass-copying surfaced in some of the centers.

Applicants from all over the state have shown their strong resentment over mass copying in various centres that took place in yesterday’s graduate level examination.

This exam was first of its kind where over 59000 aspirants took part in written examination at over 1000 centres located all over the state out of total 90000 applicants.

Aspirants have said that government should hold an enquiry into the matter so that the “tall claims” of fair conduct of examination be achieved. They demanded re-examination of the written test and rued over the arrangements made by the authorities in various centres. An aspirant from Kishtwar fainted during the exams. The candidate was writing exams in the centre located at Sheen Public School, Doda.

“The applicants who studied hard day and night in order to crack the exam are the biggest victims of such an ‘unfortunate incident’ and such an ‘unholy thing’ will have drastic effect on them thereby denying the deserving candidates of their rights,” a candidate said.

It is pertinent to mention here that JKSSB has been under strong criticism from the aspirants as the board has miserably failed in allocating the centre to the Kishtwar based applicants at Kishtwar and were allotted centres in other districts.

Furthermore, it has been urged that the Services Selection board should arrange the examination centres to the applicants in their respective district in future which will ease off the sufferings of aspirants.
