Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) had conducted the State Services Examination (Preliminary) on April 2 and within just three days, the answer keys were made available in the public domain. The candidates can now access the MPSC State Service exam 2017 answer key through the official MPSC website.
In a press note issued on April 5, the Commission has asked the candidates to check the answer keys and submit queries/ objections, if they find any mistake in it. The candidates can check the MPSC Pre answer key for both the papers. For submitting the objection (s), one need to mention the name of the exam (State Service Pre Exam 2017), question number and paper set (A, B, C, D).
The correct format of sending an objection is by writing the queries/ objections in detail for both the papers on separate pages and keeping it in a single envelope. The envelope is required to be sent to the following address:
Exam Controller and Joint Secretary,
Maharashtra Public Service Commission,
Floor 51/2, 7 and 8, Cooperage Telephone Exchange Building,
Maharshi Karve Road, Cooperage,
Mumbai – 400021
The queries must reach the MPSC Office by April 12 as the Commission will not entertain any requests received after April 12, 2017. The authorities will assess the feedback received from the candidates and will prepare the final answer keys if any modification is needed. The result of pre exam will be based on the final answer keys and is expected to be declared in the second week of July.
MPSC had notified to fill 155 posts through the State Service Exam 2017. As per the selection procedure, all the applicants were invited to appear for the preliminary exam.
