RPSC 1st grade exam 2019 will be as scheduled; no date change

The RPSC 1st grade teacher (Lecturer) exam will be conducted as scheduled, Rajasthan Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasra said in a statement here this week. The Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC) had scheduled the 1st grade lecturer exam between January 3rd-10th, 2020. The complete schedule is given here.

Thousands of candidates have been protesting in the State Capital Jaipur for 3 weeks now, demanding the postponement of exam along with a demand to increase the number of vacancies.

Acknowledging the demands, the State Education Minister, via Twitter, stated, “After listening to the candidates’ demands, the Committee has decided to conduct the 1st Grade Lecturer exam on scheduled dates due to insufficiency of teachers in the schools.” The minister further added, ” Candidates are requested to end the protests as REET recruitment is to be announced very soon.”

Considering that even after such large scale protests the State government has declined to postpone the exams, the candidates are advised to press on with their test preparations. The admit cards for this RPSC 1st grade exam has not been released yet. It is expected that RPSC will issue the admit cards for this exam within 2-3 days. Candidates may visit the official website rpsc.rajasthan.gov.in regularly to check for the admit card release. The information about exam centers, timing for candidate’s relevant subject exam time and guidelines will be imprinted on the admit card itself.

According to the reports, more than 1 lakh candidates will be affected by the State government’s move to not postpone the exam. These are the candidates who have applied for the recruitment but their graduation degree final exams are yet to be held. Since these candidates will not receive their graduation degree certificates within due dates, they face the disqualification in exam. Overall, nearly 10 lakh candidates have been reported to apply for this recruitment process which was first advertised in 2018.

Its less likely that the exam will now be postponed even though protests are still ongoing and stronger than ever.
