Aspirants for the post of medical officers who have not made it to the selection list issued by J&K public service commission (PSC) have demanded the marks scored by all the candidates in the written test be made public to ensure transparency.

While the PSC recently concluded the scrutiny of documents of the selected candidates in the written test held on 2 December for 1000 posts of medical officers (allopathic), the marks obtained by all the aspirants are yet to be made public.

The aspirants for the posts said that by not making the marks public, the commission has ridiculed the government’s claims that written test was aimed to ensure “transparency in the process”.

“We do not know how much we scored in the test and how far behind we were from those selected,” an aspirant who wished anonymity said.

He said the PSC had “eroded the sanctity, genuineness and transparency of selections by the shoddy process”.

Another aspirant called the process adopted by PSC a “lottery system”.

“The PSC must have checked all the papers and compiled a list of marks, in order to derive the merit list,” the candidate said. “What then prevents it from making these marks public?” he asked.

He said it was the right of every candidate to know his or her marks and position in merit.

The candidates alleged that the answer key for the written test was also not provided by the PSC barring them from knowing their marks. “What is the use of the duplicate copy of our OMR sheet?” the candidate asked.

The candidates said the marks were also essential in order to determine their position in the waiting list that the Commission is expected to issue subsequently. “Will the waiting list be based on pick and choose, if the marks are not made public?” a female aspirant asked.

On 8 December, the PSC issued a selection list with 95 candidates selected for the posts of medical officers in health and medical education department.
