Candidates aghast over ‘out of syllabi’ paper
Test for Posts of Lecturer Computer Applications
Srinagar, Aug 3: The aspirants who appeared in the screening test for the posts of lecturer Computer Applications in Higher Education Department have criticized the Public Service Commission of allegedly providing them out of syllabus question paper.
The aspirants, who were short listed by the Commission for the screening test, belonged to both Jammu and Kashmir divisions. Some 243 aspirants have appeared at Srinagar for the screening test while 233 at Jammu.
“After going through the question paper we found that out of 15 notified topics at least five have been completely ignored,” the aspirants alleged.
The aspirants are now angered by the ‘lackadaisical attitude’ of the Commission accusing it of putting their career at stake. “At least four new out of syllabus topics were considered by the examiners while framing the question paper”, they said.
On May 20 the Commission issued a syllabus under notice No 172-PSC of 2011, for the information of all concerned candidates, who have applied for the posts.
The syllabus comprised 15 topics: Computer Fundamentals and Applications, Programming Language Principles, Database Management Systems, Data and File Structures, Programming Concepts in C/C++, Software Engineering and Management, Operating Systems, Unix/Linux Programming, Compiler Design, Java Programming, Theory of Computation and Formal Languages, Optimization Techniques, Artificial Intelligence and Neural Network, Modeling & Simulation, Wireless and Mobile Communication.
However, the candidates alleged the Commission had ignored five topics included Software Engineering and Management Optimization Techniques, Artificial Intelligence and Neural Network, Modeling & Simulation, Wireless and Mobile Communication.
“Instead they included nearly 40 questions from out of syllabus topics which include Digital Electronics, Computer Organization and Architecture, Data Communications and Computer Networks,” they said.
The candidates appealed to the Secretary Jammu and Kashmir Public Commission to look into the matter to save their career.
Despite repeated attempts, the Secretary could not be contacted.
