So how to analyse these application submissions?
First most exams conducted by APPSC had an attendance of around 50% only!.Reasons being the enormous time lag between the date the notification issued and the announcement of exam date which will make the prospective candidate look for other jobs or lose interest or not prepared for the exam.out of remaining 50% only 20% i.e, around 20000 people actually prepare and make a sincere attempt.So total 20000 are actually competing for 682(executice 462 + non exec 220) jobs.So overall around 30 candidates are competing for one job, ofcourse it varies for each community and the zone they are appearing from as well, for example OC men(i.e no reservation) candidates can only compete for 199 jobs, so they need to work smart.
These statistics are far better than if one is competing for a typical software engineer or trainee position.Here only hard work pays and the same syllabus is useful for all competitive exams ranging from UPSC Civil services,bank probationary officers,staff selection commission,software, engineering trainee and various other govt dept examinations.In addition the mental ability part will be useful for higher education through CAT,GRE,GMAT exams.So all those who are graduating out of college should apply and make a sincere attempt for atleast one govt exam.It can be UPSC,state services or anything of your interest.Just 6 months of sincere prep helps you a long way.It doesn’t matter whether you succeed or not but the attempt helps you to get the confidence to crack other exams with ease.
