Advice for APPSC Groups Aspirants
Those aspiring to appear for Group I or II services in AP need to keep some hard facts on top of their mind.
1) APPSC don’t conduct groups examinations every year like UPSC or other state commissions like Tamilnadu,Maharastra.
2) APPSC don’t have any examination timetable, which means you never know when they announce notification, announce exam dates after receiving applications,when they announce results.The more stages your exam got (like Group I) the more uncertainty.
3) Most of the APPSC notifications are announced & conducted according to wishes of the government in power.This means the government may not conduct exams for 3 or 4 years and then announce a notification with large number of posts at once with age exemptions.
4) As there is no exam timetable for APPSC the gap between exam notification and conduct of examination varies from minimum 1 year(for technical posts) to 3 years or more(for popular ones like group I,II).
5)The lack of exam timetable on part of APPSC is making the students desperate to appear for Groups exams when they announce the dates and also making controversial attempts by students asking for more posts, age exemptions, reservation issues which in turn is making the already delayed process delaying further.
So those who already doing job or those who are looking for job continue with your plans and don’t wait for Groups exams.Just apply for these exams when APPSC announced notifications and continue with your job, start preparation for the exam when they announce the dates.Don’t ever quit your current job for preparation of Group I or II!!
