BENGALURU:  Candidates appearing for the gazetted probationary posts examination conducted by the Karnataka Public Service Commission (KPSC) were a bit relieved after the exam on Monday as there was no match between the question paper issued by mistake on Saturday and the paper given on Monday.

According to candidates, who appeared for the exams on Monday, the paper was entirely different from the one given out by mistake on Saturday.

“There were one or two similar questions, but that does not matter as we answer questions for up to 250 marks,” a candidate said.

But some candidates were unhappy about the Commission changing the pattern of the question paper. “We were prepared for the pattern — that is a case-studies-based paper. But what we got was entirely different and it will be difficult to score good marks,” said a candidate.

On Monday, candidates took the Ethics/Moral Studies exam, the paper for which was distributed during Saturday’s Essay exam. And following this goof-up, candidates met the KPSC secretary and requested that the exams be postponed. However, authorities assured that another set of paper, which is ready would be issued.

Another candidate said, “We have to wait till the exams conclude because there are a few more subjects papers which were leaked.”
