THE Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC) announced the vacancies for lecturers for different subjects through an advertisement on Aug 22. The last date for submitting applications was Sept 8, while the test was held on Nov 8.
Regrettably, the test was a nuisance for candidates. Most questions were taken from Indian websites regarding authors from that country, while a few of them had no correct answer in the given options. Needless to say, the test was a disaster as, among other things, there were questions from outside the syllabus taught in the academic institutions of higher learning in the province.
The PPSC is urged to conduct the test again. The frustrated candidates may take to the streets to protest against such unprofessional attitude on the part of PPSC. The government is also urged to take action in favour of the candidates as, for many of us, it is an opportunity of a lifetime.
