NPSC examination, conducted for the first time in Dimapur and spread over four centres, had a total of 3488 candidates.
Taking to Nagaland Post, DC Dimapur Maongwatir Aier said four magistrates and four police officers were deployed at four centers to ensure smooth conduct of the examination.
In Christian higher secondary school, out of 1099 candidates called, only 903 turned up for the examination.
Even in Little Star School, only 467 candidates turned up against a total of 600 called to sit for the exam. Some of those who appeared were apparently satisfied as they found the questions ‘easy’ but for some, it was ‘tough’.They also said the question papers this time did not contain any errors or spelling mistakes.
According to a candidate appearing the NPSC examination for the fourth time, the general knowledge questions on Nagaland were “very silly” adding such questions were ‘unexpected’.
Some officers, who were in-charge of the examination centers, were reluctant to provide information to the press.
An invigilator at a centre disclosed that they were under strict instructions to avoid giving any interview to the media.
Answer keys
Meanwhile, the Nagaland Public Service Commission has informed that it would publish answer keys to questions of the NPSC examination that was held Saturday.
Answer keys would be published in local dailies, after a week, for candidates to access their own answers, NPSC secretary Dellirose Sakhrie said.
It may be mentioned here that a case filed by the NPSC at the Gauhati High Court seeking permission to declare the result of NCS, NPS, NSS and Allied Services Examination 2009 has been deferred by the Court to be listed after June 16, 2010.
