Candidates who opted for XY groups appeared in a combined exam of 85 minutes duration with English, Physics, Mathematics, Reasoning and General Awareness.
After the exam concluded, reports emerged of hacking of online test. A centre in Rohtak, Haryana was where candidates were caught indulging in a cheating racket, though the complete extent of the racket is yet to be revealed.
A candidate was found to be idly sitting in front of the computer and yet typing in answers. This raised some eyebrows and it was found that a handful of test takers were sitting in room next to the exam hall with remote connectivity to computer network and feeding the candidates answers.
Those accused in the racket include an owner of a computer centre located in Gurgaon, a former ITI principal from Jhajjar, a coaching centre owner. They allegedly charged candidates Rs 5 to 6 lakh rupees to help them cheat in the IAF Airmen Selection exam.
Further reports will reveal to what extent this has, or has not damaged the selection process. However until now, there is no official notice on this case.
