Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) has come in the trouble. In the recent, Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) conducted civil services exam and it alleged that several questions of the question paper were lifted from a forum for aspirants of the Pakistan civil services examination, the report said.
As per reports, aspirants in Arunachal Pradesh alleged that majority of the questions were lifted from the site ‘www.cssforum.com.pk’. To add to their woes, in the public administration question paper, 50 questions were a repeat of the Union Public Services Exam’s (UPSC) 2008 question paper. Also, stickers for the form numbers were manually written and papers were handed out unsealed in some cases.
Nearly 90 percent of the sociology questions were lifted from an article on the Mandal Commission judgment, written by Shelly Shan in the early 1990s, listed on the website ‘www.sociologydiscussion.com’. Besides, there were so many spelling mistakes and errors in the veterinary sciences paper that the Arunachal Veterinary Doctors’ Unemployed Association was prompted to write a letter to APPSC secretary Madhu K Garg, it added.
According to an aspirant Bengia Taja, the papers were peppered with hundreds of errors — letters were missing, words were misspelled, and several papers had questions that were outside the syllabus prescribed on the APPSC website.
