Panaji: The recent computer-based recruitment test (CBRT) conducted by the Goa Public Service Commission (GPSC) has shown a growth in performance by the candidates.

2,723 attempted the examination in a total of 3700 who had applied. 79 candidates passed and 96 qualified for a repeat examination; 22 positions of junior scale officers in the personnel department. The screening exam which was supposed to be held in March 2020, was  postpone due to the lockdown.

The commission had earlier decided and informed the candidates that those who secured up to three marks less than the required cut-off in their respective categories would be eligible to answer a repeat examination. Of those who answered the repeat exam, 12 cleared in the general category and four cleared in the OBC category.

Candidates who cleared the pre-screening test will now be subject to the screening CBRT, a 75-minute paper carrying 75 marks. The paper will examine topics including history, governance, environment, innovation, current affairs, geography, reasoning and English comprehension. The screening CBRT is scheduled to be held on December 13 and those who qualify here will have to answer four written papers totalling 250 marks. Those who qualify at the written examination will have to appear for an interview before a selection committee.

The commission had also conducted CBRT for the position of assistant public prosecutor for the home department’s directorate of prosecution. A total of 450 candidates had applied for the 23 positions available. Of these, 353 appeared for the examination. From these, 28 candidates cleared the examination – 13 in general category, seven in the OBC category, seven in the ST category and one in the SC category. No candidate was successful in the persons with disability (PWD) category.
