Haryana Staff Selection Commission (HSSC) is expected to release the answer key of Clerk recruitment exam anytime by the second week of October. This is because in the past three recruitment exams, the commission has published answer keys within 3 days to 19 days after the exam.
To start with, HSSC conducted the Junior Engineer recruitment exam on August 31 and September 1, and published answer key on September 4. That is within three days. Prior to that the HSSC JE electrical recruitment test was conducted on April 29 and answer key was released on May 8. A nine days gap. Even before that, the HSSC group D exam was held last year on November 10, 11, 17, and 18. For that recruitment, answer key was released on December 7, that was after nineteen days.
As can be seen, with every recruitment, HSSC is reducing the gap between exam date and answer key release date. Technically by that logic the HSSC clerk answer key 2019 should have been released by now.
However it is important to note that the number of exam dates and shifts in HSSC Clerk recruitment 2019 was three days, five shifts. This is more than that of JE exams, and similar to the group D exams. So there are higher chances of answer releasing between nine to nineteen days after the exam. Therefore expected date of release of HSSC Clerk answer key 2019 lies between October 2, 2019, and October 12, 2019.
The commission does not provide answer key release date, even tentative, in the recruitment notification, or after the exam. They directly release the answer key with notice on how to submit objection and by when.
Whenever the answer key is ready, and published, it will be available at hssc.gov.in. Candidates will have to visit hssc.gov.in, and head over to the public notice section to see if the answer key is released or not. When it is available, it will be published in the form of a PDF file containing set wise questions and answer options.
Even though HSSC clerk answer key 2019 is expected to be released soon because of the past exam records, there are some external factors which may delay it. There are some concerns being raised in the media over difficulty level of question papers. It has been alleged that the exam in few shifts were as difficult as graduation level, and others were as easy as 10th level. If officials look into these concerns, there could be a delay in answer key release.
In the notice for answer key release, HSSC will tell how to submit objections. Usually an email id is provided, to which, candidates have to email and tell which question they want to submit objection against.
Haryana Staff Selection Commission clearly instructs candidates to mention their name, post, advertisement number, category number, date of exam, shift or session while submitting objections. The expected result date for HSSC Clerk exam can be calculated once the answer key is released.
