Guwahati: Paying attention to the candidates plea, the Assam Public Service Commission has made up our minds to cancel the recruitment examination of the ‘Social Works’ paper to the post of CDPO and Allied cadres under Social Welfare Branch.
The commission will hold fresh examination for the said paper and candidates who appeared for the ‘Social Works’ paper on November 8 will only be allowed to seem for the re-exam.
The order also informed that this decision would not impact the candidates who appeared in optional subjects other than ‘Social Works’.
The APSC conducted examination to recruit CDPOs (Child Development Project Officers) was once marred with controversy following question paper goof-up.
The demand from a section of candidates to hold fresh examination came after the question paper that was once distributed among them reportedly looked to be of ‘Sociology’ instead of ‘Social Work’.
