Shortage of question papers restricts candidates from appearing for CGLT
Numerous candidates who travelled to Delhi, to appear for the Staff Selection Commission’s Common Graduate Level Test, from different parts of the country could not sit for the exam due to the shortage of question papers at various centres.
SSC only expected 70% of the candidates to turn up for the exam this time and therefore, it only sent a limited number of question papers to the exam centres. This situation could not have been mitigated even if the supervisors at the centres wanted to accommodate all the students for the exam.
Sunil Kaushik, one of the several candidates who missed a shot for the CGLT, said, "I had come all the way from Hisar (Haryana) to appear for my examination. It has been raining miserably since morning. Even then I managed to reach the centre somehow. But I was not allowed to sit for the exams because I was told that the question papers fell short. I don't come from a rich family and managing the travelling expenses to make it to Delhi was tough for me. This is highly irresponsible on part of the SSC. Who will be paying for the loss of my travelling expenses? Candidates like me should definitely get compensation."
Several candidates, like Kaushik, travelling to Delhi from different parts of the country to appear for the CGLT exam were not allowed to sit for the exam. A huge disappointment among the candidates who were not able to sit for the exam can be evidently seen as a result of all this.
