HYDERABAD:As the Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) is set to conduct its second online based recruitment test, the officials have made all arrangements to avoid technical glitches that occurred during the first test.
Considering the embarrassing experience during the previous test, the TSPSC has now arranged backup computers at all the test centers to accommodate candidates in case of any inconvenience in the test.
Ahead of the Computer Based Recruitment Test (CBRT) on October 17 and 18 for the posts of three departments including agriculture, horticulture and irrigation departments, the TSPSC reserved 10 percent of the available computers at every centre as backup computers. In case of any technical glitch at the test centers, the candidates will be accommodated on these computers. If more than 10 percent of the computers malfunction, the candidates will be shifted to another closest centre, an official from the TSPSC said. Apart from this, tight security has been arranged at the test centers, he added.
The TSPSC would conduct online test for recruitment of horticulture officer, agriculture officer and assistant executive engineers on Saturday and Sunday. Around 48 centres have been arranged in Hyderabad for all three tests. TSPSC appointed four zonal officers, 800 invigilator, 700 supporting staff and around 150 observers for the test. In addition to them, the TSPSC has also deployed 12 special squads consisting of two members each to monitor the test.
This time, the general studies paper will be available in both English and Telugu languages. However, the concerned subject paper for all three tests will be available only in English language.
The TSPSC advised the candidates to reach the exam center before the given time. Candidate will be allowed to enter the examination hall from 8.30 a.m to 9.15 a.m. for morning session and from 1 p.m to 1.45 p.m for afternoon session.
