The un­ex­pected jour­ney – the Pre­lim­i­nary Ex­am­i­na­tion

Bhutan Times - - Home - Tashi Deki

About 3,3000 grad­u­ates has reg­is­tered with the Royal Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion to ap­pear for the most talked topic of the month the Pre­lim­i­nary Ex­am­i­na­tion sched­uled on 10th of next month, feared most by the fresh grad­u­ates be­cause of the in­creas­ing in un­em­ploy­ment rate.

The drop­ping of pre­lim­i­nary ex­am­i­na­tion is one out of the 100 pledges made by the present govern­ment. Most of them are dis­ap­pointed as the govern­ment did not ful­fill its prom­ises.

The new grad­u­ates are gear­ing up their mind and soul to get through this en­try ex­am­i­na­tion, most of them feels that this exam be­ing the most dif­fi­cult hur­dle on the way, they feel that most of them will fail to get through.

It surely de­pend on how much you have study and how much you know, some­times the ques­tions gets you in a tricky sit­u­a­tion, most of them said that “it surely de­pends on luck and more­over if you are from a math’s back­ground.”

Kezang Cho­den a fresh grad­u­ate from Bangalore said that “I am tak­ing classes for PE and more­over it is hard for me as I am from the arts back­ground. I am do­ing my best to get through.”

An­other grad­u­ates Sonam Dorji from Chennai said that “though it is very in­tense for me but I am sure that I can do it, ev­ery­thing is pos­si­ble if you be­lieve in your­self.”

More than 3,567 grad­u­ates reg­is­tered for the pre­lim­i­nary ex­am­i­na­tion last year. While 3,332 grad­u­ates sat for the exam on July 11, 1,614 got short­listed.

Ev­ery year the num­bers of unem­ployed keep in­creas­ing and the only fear that the grad­u­ates have is the re­cruit­ment in the govern­ment sec­tor. Even last year many dreams of grad­u­ates to sit for RCSC was shat­tered as many didn’t get through the en­try ex­am­i­na­tion.

Is it fair? For those who don’t have the math’s back­ground or do you think that jus­tice are given to those peo­ple with­out math’s back­ground. It is re­ally some­thing we should look into. Though many said that “you should know the ba­sic to get through” as it was stated in the in­ter­view last year.

Classes are pro­vided but most of the ques­tion is from the math’s area. One of the grad­u­ates from last year’s said that “even those grad­u­ates who took MBBS, they failed to get through the en­try ex­am­i­na­tion.” Should we be wor­ried that with­out the math for three years, do we have the chances to get through the en­try ex­am­i­na­tion?.

The reg­is­tra­tion for the Na­tional Grad­u­ate Ori­en­ta­tion Pro­gram ( NGOP) by the Min­istry of Labour and Hu­mans Re­sources is un­der­way till the 27of July 2014 and so far they have res­gis­tered about 1,990 grad­u­ates .
