The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Public Service Commission (KPPSC) conducted a test for the post of Tehsil municipal officers (TMO) on January 31, 2018. Gross mismanagement at different examination centres during the test has called for the attention of the authorities. Cell phones were being openly used by candidates. The entire examination paper was made public through various social networking sites and messaging apps within the first 20 minutes of the test.
Whoever drafted the question paper showed incompetency and lack of care. All questions were copied verbatim from a local book. Owing to the mismanagement in the test, the KPPSC should declare the recent test void and rearrange it according to the given syllabus. The KPPSC should also take measures to disallow candidates from carrying cell phones inside examination halls.
