Haryana Staff Selection Commission (HSSC) has conducted the Clerk recruitment 2019 exam on September 21, 22, and 23. The exam was held in the evening shift only on the first day, and morning, evening both shifts on the other two days. Several coaching centers have published answer keys for all exam dates, all shifts on their youtube channels and social media pages.
Candidates who appeared in the exam claim that the papers were very tough. There are various inputs from candidates of all shifts; some say that the paper was out of syllabus, some say their shift was tougher than other, others found that the topics of questions were very different from others.
HSSC clerk 2019 exam analysis and why candidates found the paper tough?
When the exam date for HSSC Clerk exam was announced, the syllabus or exam pattern was given in that notification also. As per it, the syllabus was as follows: 75% of the paper will have questions on general awareness, reasoning, maths, science, computer, english, hindi, concerned or relevant subject as applicable; 25% of the paper was on history, current affairs, literature, geography, civic, environment, culture of Haryana.
As can be seen, no fixed topics were given. Candidates prepared, what the various books for clerk exam and government job preparation classes suggested them to prepare. Usually the topics covered at these places is as per the past year exams.
Now what happened is that HSSC clerk exam had questions from the syllabus only, but the level of topics was not what the candidates were taught by the books they referred or classes they attended. Basically compared to previous year HSSC exams, the level was unexpected.
This is where the problem begins.
Why candidates want normalization?
There are two reasons why candidates want normalization. First is because many candidates found their shift’s question paper to be tougher than the other shift. And second reason is that the first few shift candidates feel that they got a surprise in paper, but the other shift candidates were ready for the surprise because they could see the previous shift question papers. So to ensure that difference in marks due to difficulty level differences, and surprise factor difference is removed, therefore candidates want normalization.
Who has published HSSC Clerk answer key 2019 after exam?

Many coaching centers and subject matter experts had been helping government job aspirants of Haryana to prepare for the recruitment.

These coaching centers and subject matter experts have published their unofficial answer keys after each exam shift. The unofficial answer keys are solutions of the paper by individuals and hence may not match with the official answer key.
