CANDIDATES have certain reservations as regards conducting of FPSC and SPSC examinations on working days. Moreover, examination centres chosen by candidates for their convenience are also often shifted to other centres.

I request the authorities concerned, on behalf of the affected candidates, to conduct examinations on Sunday only. The candidates face numerous problems while appearing in examinations on working days because of their commitment to other jobs or studies during weekdays. If examinations are conducted on Sunday, it will be convenient for many more candidates to appear and take examinations.

Moreover, once students have assigned a specific centre, they face much inconvenience when their centres are changed.

Although the authorities concerned are entitled to shift the centre in view of the low number of candidates in a particular centre, it causes great inconvenience to the candidates who have to bear extra travelling and maintenance costs etc. Thus, the examination centres must not be changed.

Exam on Sundays, as most of the candidates are working? What happened to the annual leave entitlement? I guess it is only for recreation. And the controlling staff should work on Sundays. They don't need rest.
