A practice test for the candidates who will take PSI and STI exams of Maharashtra Public Services Commission was conducted by the MPSC Forum at the Shiv Chhatrapati College.
The test was conducted as a practice for the preliminary PSI exam scheduled on August 25.
Students took the test in large numbers. The exam was organised under the guidance of Shiv Chhatrapati College principal Dr P V Ashtekar, while vice principal Sheikh Sabiha, Dr D P Vavre and others provided their cooperation in conducting the exam.
Today not only government organisations but private firms also are conducting competitive exams for the recruitment. With a view to create an awareness of competitive exams among the students and to provide an appropriate guidance to the students, many colleges have started imparting education related to competitive exams to the students and are charging minimum fee.
On the lines of it, MPSC Forum has been established at the Shiv Chhatrapati College to help the students.
"Our motive is to provide expert guidance to the students. The forum consists of 20 lecturers of college for the guidance of students. We also conduct guest lectures for the students," said MPSC Forum coordinator Shivaji Raut.
