    55 marks in sc Cat. koi chance ha kya.Please batao dosto

    1. Pravin

      No one can predict result exactly, especially for APFC exam as it is not a regular exam and the pattern of exam is also different from other exams. You may be qualified in written exam even though you have 55 score as it depends on many factors.

    The 2012 APFC Exam result was released Or Not? If result released how to see ? otherwise If not release the result When will release the result ? Any idea If release the result pls send mail to Me.

  15. jin

    i don’t find any good reason of conducting an exam if the result is going to be delayed for this long. this in-ordinate delay has kept everyone in a fix. After given so much of effort with a hope to become APFC,the aspirants are confused and now grew little impatient over this. Even after 190 days we are still made to wait for the result.Anyway, better late than never.

    because really i deserved candidate for apfc position. please help me, i Request you,
    please reply….

  28. shiv

    mrunal sir,
    i verified the airworthy officers selection list. it found that within five interview boards in a day there is much variation of number of selected candidates. for ex on 19 march12 selected candidates from each boards are 8,4,3,7,0. means one board selected 8 candidates at the same time other board selected no candidate.it clearly shows that one board awarding marksliberally and other board giving less marks to candidate. so the fate of the candidate is depending upon the board since the written marks are no matter as in in APFC. where is the justice. sir do something to curb this. save our future from the unscientific approaches followed by the upsc. we hope u r d right person. u r our hope.
