The answer keys for Jammu And Kashmir Service Selection Board (JKSSB) graduation level examination held on April 27, 2017 will expectedly be released here by some coaching centres. JKSSB finally conducted it’s graduate level exam yesterday. JKSSB answer key for this 27th April 2017 exam will be released within a day or two by coaching centres, and later this week officially.
However, irregularities were reported at places. One of them being the photo being shared on social media where a candidate is showing an answer sheet in the open, outside the examination hall. We can’t confirm the report whether or not this is his answer sheet. The photo was shared by a popular Facebook page. This should be minor incident and must not affect exam’s fate.
JKSSB Graduate Level examination was finally conducted across the State today. After facing multiple postponements, the exam was conducted on Sunday in a single shift from 2 pm to 4.30 pm.
