    Group-4 Exam Successfully Conducted with Stringent Measures

    The Group-4 exam, conducted by the Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC), has been completed with all preparations in place. TSPSC has decided to check the candidates using six different methods. This time, biometric thumb impression was introduced, and thumb scanners were installed at every exam center. Candidates were required to enter the examination centers two hours before the start of the exam to complete the verification process. TSPSC has instructed that fingerprint verification should be completed before the candidates are allowed into the examination centers.

    Stringent Measures to Prevent Cheating

    The TSPSC has implemented several measures to prevent cheating during the Group-4 exams. One of the significant methods is question jumbling. In the previous exams, four sets of question papers with names A, B, C, and D were given to the candidates in sequential order. However, this time, TSPSC prepared question papers with a higher number of series and jumbled them using computers. The question papers were printed in multiple series, making it difficult for candidates to copy from each other. It is essential for candidates to maintain individual integrity during the examination. If any candidate’s number is incorrectly bubbled on the OMR sheet or if the invigilator’s signature is missing, their answer paper will be evaluated.

    Conducting Exams in Two Sessions

    The Group-4 exam was conducted across 2,878 centers throughout the state. The exam was divided into two sessions. The first session, Paper-1, took place from 10 AM to 12:30 PM, and the second session, Paper-2, took place from 2:30 PM to 5 PM. Candidates were allowed into the exam centers from 8:30 AM. The gates for Paper-1 closed at 9:45 AM, and for Paper-2 at 2:15 PM. The question papers were provided in Telugu, English, and Urdu mediums. TSPSC strictly adhered to the exam timings and allowed a grace period of one hour for candidates who arrived late.

    Verification Process for Group-4 Exam

    To ensure the authenticity of the Group-4 exam, several verification processes were implemented. These include checking the hall tickets at the entrance of the exam center, verifying any government-issued identification card (with correct photo), cross-checking the names on the nominal rolls, verifying the photo on the nominal roll with the government ID, and ensuring that candidates’ thumb impressions match. Additionally, answer sheets were accepted only after verifying the fingerprints. Therefore, candidates need to be careful while bubbling their numbers on the OMR sheet and ensuring that their invigilator signs it.

    Strict Monitoring and Control Measures

    To maintain fairness and prevent malpractice, special attention was given to each examination center. Collectors, additional collectors, and SPs conducted regular reviews and inspections. Approximately 40 supervisors received special training as invigilators. TSPSC also focused on understanding the rules and regulations regarding invigilation and essay writing. Female staff was appointed to ensure the proper frisking of female candidates. Candidates were required to enter the exam centers two hours before the start of the exam. No specific dress code or restrictions were imposed on candidates, except for a respectful behavior towards Hindu traditions. It is important to note that false propaganda regarding cheating during exams is baseless and can jeopardize the future of candidates.

    In conclusion, the Group-4 exam was conducted with strict measures to ensure fairness and prevent cheating. TSPSC implemented various methods such as question jumbling and biometric thumb impression to maintain integrity during the examination process. The verification processes were diligently followed to authenticate the identity of candidates. With stringent monitoring and control measures, TSPSC ensured a smooth and secure exam environment for all candidates.
