It is now almost final that Bihar Staff Selection Commission will hold Second Graduate level Preliminary-2 for selecting candidates for mains examination. According to the General administration department modified rule (for Bihar Staff Selection Commission Examinations):
1. The preliminary examination shall be conducted in more than one stages on being the number of applicants more than four lakhs. In each examination, candidates obtaining 10% highest marks shall be permitted to appear in the preliminary examination -2. The main examination shall be conducted for successful candidates of preliminary examination -2 .
It means three things:
1. 10% of February 16 and 10% of February 23 appearance (in examination) will be qualified for preliminary-2 examination.
2. About 80,000 candidates will be called for preliminary-2 stage.
3. 5times of posts will be qualified for mains examination.
On the basis of general administration amendment (10% rule) and toughness (in fact easy nature of questions) nature of preliminary-1, it can be assumed that those (candidates) getting 410-420 numbers should be ready for preliminary-2 stage. It might be setback for good performers, but good another chance for those who are little skeptical. Anyways, it is good move.
