2,679 sit for SCS and SPS prelims

GANGTOK, 22 July: 2,679 candidates appeared for the junior grade Sikkim State Civil Service [SCS] and Sikkim State Police Services [SPS] preliminary examinations on Sunday which was held amidst tight security at the 11 institutional centres in and around Gangtok. The exams were held for 25 posts of Under Secretary and 2 posts of Deputy Superintendent of Police.
While 2,691 candidates sat for the first paper in the morning session, 2,679 candidates returned for the second paper in the afternoon, informed the Controller of Examinations, Sikkim Public Service Commission, OP Sapkota.
5,431 candidates had registered for the preliminary examinations, but only 3,189 candidates took their admit cards for the exams, while the rest did not take their admit cards even though they were available with the officials of the SPSC office, he highlighted.
We are in the process of conducting the evaluations, he added.
It may be mentioned that this time the SPSC is conducting the exams based on the UPSC format where preliminary exams will be followed by the Mains and then the viva voce.
