The date of preliminary examination of 43rd BCS is being rescheduled, said a source of Bangladesh Public Service Commission (BPSC).

The exam was scheduled to be held on 15 October but the date would be deferred due to Hindu religious festival of Bijaya Dashami on that day.

The BPSC source said the exam is likely to defer for a week.
