The results of 38th Bangladesh Civil Service’s (BCS’) written tests have been published.
Bangladesh Public Service Commission (BPSC) published the results on its website on Monday.
A total of 9,862 candidates out of 14,546 passed the examinations. They are now eligible for the viva voce for jobs at the government offices.
The results have been published nearly after a year.
The written examinations were held on 13 August last year and the preliminary exam took place on 29 December, 2017. As many as 389,469 jobs seekers applied against 2,024 posts.
Asked about the delay in publishing the results, BPSC chairman Mohammad Sadique said that the publishing of written test results was delayed due to evaluating the scripts by third examiners. This is for the first time that the third examiners have evaluated the answer scripts, he added.
The authorities have increased number of posts in this BCS.
The public administration ministry earlier sent a proposal to the Bangladesh Public Service Commission (BPSC) in this regard.
As per the proposal, 136 more people would be recruited in the 38th BCS.
According to the revised decision, the number of appointees will be increased to 2,160 instead of 2,024 posts.
