The Meghalaya Public Service Commission issued advertisement on 24/07/2017 for the preliminary examination (first phase) for the recruitment to the Meghalaya Civil Service, Junior Grade. The syllabus clearly mentioned the criteria which was to be adopted for the examination process.
Candidates being eligible applied for the examination which was subsequently held on 04/08/2018. The result of preliminary exam was declared on 05/10/2018. Feeling aggrieved by the results some candidates wish to know the criteria adopted for marking and selection for the Main Examination.
