Change in syllabus creates confusion among students - Source LT
Maharashtra Public Services Commissions (MPSC), an organisation responsible for the recruitment of candidates in various departments under the State Government has announced a change in the syllabus of Assistant preliminary exam and sales tax inspector, which will be held on September 29 and November 24 respectively.
The syllabi of the preliminary exams for the posts of PSI, assistant and sales tax inspector have been changed by MPSC. MPSC has made notifications of the change; however the change has increased the pressure on the students as they will have to start their preparations of new subject afresh with lesser time remaining for the exam. It is frustrating for the candidates who are preparing for the exam for the past 2 to 3 years.
The change in the syllabi of these subjects is made in the form of adding an extra subject of Intelligence Quotient (IQ) for the students. It is proving to be difficult for the students as they already have many subjects to prepare for and now, addition of IQ for the exam which is just 27 days away will add to the burden of the candidates.
The preliminary exam for the post of assistant will be of 100 marks in which 100 multiple choice questions will be asked with the time limit of one hour and a new subject IQ has been added to the syllabus.
Earlier the exam used to be of 300 marks containing 150 objective type questions for one and a half hour.
