AP DSC 2018 exam postponed, check revised exam schedule here

VIJAYAWADA: Allaying worries of Andhra Pradesh District Selection Committee ()-2018 aspirants, state human resource minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao on Wednesday (November 28) confirmed that the examinations have been postponed by two weeks.

Speaking to TOI, the minister said the exams scheduled to begin on December 6 would now commence from December 24.

This decision has been taken after many candidates requested both the minister and the education department officials to postpone the exams as they felt that they do not have enough time to prepare.

The notification for the exam was released on October 26, leaving only 41 days for preparation, which is a little too less to be able to compete in one of the most competitive exams, said Boddu Nageswara Rao, MLC, who represented the issue to the minister and the authorities.

Expressing relief over the postponement of the exam, Ashok, an aspirant, said, “Some of us are preparing to write the entrance for the posts of school assistants and the secondary grade teachers. It is tough competition ahead, as the notification has not been released since 2014. It is only fair that they postpone the exam.”

A little over six lakh candidates have applied for 7,729 teachers’ posts in various government schools in the state. Candidates also demanded an increase in the number of posts. But officials have ruled out any such move.

Ganta Srinivasa Rao said the demand to conduct the examination offline cannot be met. He said the examination would be held only on online as proposed earlier. He said the matter was also discussed with chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, before coming to the conclusion.

While the tentative dates have been released by the HRD minister, the commissioner of School Education, K Sandhya Rani confirmed the final dates and details of any more changes to be made in the exam centre allotments and the mode of examination are yet to be revealed.

The detailed schedule is likely to be declared on Friday.
