BPSC CCE date revised due to board exams


Citing the then ongoing Bihar board exams in the state, the commission on March 10 announced the postponement of the exam from April 30 to May 7. This exam date was yet again revised due to CBSE internal exam scheduled on the same day. The exam was then scheduled for a day later to May 8.

Exam cancelled due to paper leak

After six months of recurring postponement, BPSC set May 8 as the final date to conduct 67th CCE. The admit cards for the same were released on April 25. As candidates reached the exam centre to appear for the BPSC Prelims, the commission declared it cancel over the question paper leak. The screenshots of set C of the question paper were also shared on social media. 

Decision to conduct exam in two shifts

Citing the larger number of students appearing for the exam, the BPSC on September 1 announced that the exam will now be conducted on two days – September 20 and 22. It further stated that to avoid any discrepancy, the BPSC result will be declared using equipercentile equating technique. However, this exam pattern was largely criticised by the candidates and also attracted protests in various districts in the state. The decision was later rolled back considering the request of students.

After almost 10 months, the BPSC successfully conducted the exam on September 30 between 12 pm to 2 pm.
