The Staff Selection Commission had earlier planned to conduct the Multi-Tasking Staff Non-Technical (Paper- I) 2016 exam in 5 days:- April 30, 2017, May 14 and 28, 2017, June 04 and 11, 2017. The exam which was scheduled to take place on April 30, 2017, and May 14, 2017, was successfully conducted. Candidates who had worked hard were really glad that finally, their exam was over.
But on the 2nd day of the exam, something unexpected happened. On May 14, 2017, SSC reported that some unknown sources had uploaded the question paper and their answer keys on the social media pages. It seemed like the hard work of all those lakhs of candidates had gone in vain. The SSC published a notice assuring that a close investigation against the definite leads would be followed.
Following the protocol, the SSC announced on May 23, 2017, that the exam shall stand canceled. And also that the SSC MTS exam would now be re-held in Online mode (computer based) tentatively during the month of September – October 2017. This news attracted a bit of mixed reaction.
On one hand as it was a good news that the exam would be conducted in Online mode so that chances of paper leakage could be eliminated, on the other hand, a little sad because, those who have never appeared for a Computer based test would be tensed as it will be their first time appearing for an Online based test.
