But a source at the PSC said that there is no chance of the exam getting postponed. The PSC has taken the necessary preparations to hold the exam countrywide on that day.

The source further said that PSC is monitoring the situation in Sylhet and is hopeful to hold the exams there on 27 May if the situation permits it.

But in case they can’t hold the exam on that day in Sylhet, PSC at first will try to change the exam venue. And if even that’s not possible, then exams will be held on 27 May in all other divisions except Sylhet.

A total of 3,50,716 have applied for the 44th BCS exam.
