Candidates who took the Intelligence Bureau Assistant Central Intelligence Officer Grade II Exam, Tier I or the IB ACIO, 2017 on the 15 October, 2017, were in for a rude shock, as they allegedly faced gross mismanagement at the various exam centres as well as had many complaints about the question paper. Many claimed that the question paper being leaked was also a possibility.

IB ACIO exam is one of the most sought after competitive exam, wherein lakhs of candidates compete for around 1,300 vacancies. This is year the exam was held in 33 centres across the country.

Many candidates were left disgruntled after the exam, some of them took to the social media to express their dissatisfaction.








Trouble began even before the actual test since the Exam website was down from 13 October to 14 October. Candidates were in a state of panic, since they couldn’t download the Admit Card.


Question paper leaked

Few students claim that the question paper might have been leaked. Candidates found that they received question papers which did not have seals.

Another candidate Sharad Kadam posted, “There is chance of paper getting leaked as no question paper given was sealed (surprised to see that no sets were made a/b/c/d nowadays even school level exams are conducted with paper sets.) The mathematics part was the most critical as the 18 questions that were there in exams were directly copied with options from website named affairscloud.com).”

Apart from this, many questions did not have correct answers in the given options, which left many candidates confused. Few questions were incomprehensible, incomplete or had printing mistake.


Mismanagement at exam centres

At the exam centres, many said that there was no biometric authentication in place. Mobile phones were also used in the exam hall, which went unnoticed by the invigilators, who failed to supervise the exam properly.

According to many candidates, including one Jiban Nath, the exam started exactly at 10 AM and ended at 11 AM; no separate time was allotted to fill in the particulars, costing the candidates about 15 minutes, which makes a lot of difference in a competitive exam. This is a deviation from the exam scheme released by the Ministry of Home Affairs, which states that 60 minutes are allotted for attempting the 100 questions.

Another student complained about the Declaration which was to be given in written by the candidates, both in Hindi and English, which was time consuming too. Candidates Harikrishnan Pillai said, “There was an unnecessary requirement of writing an affidavit in both Hindi and English. Candidates like me who aren’t that much experienced in Hindi found it difficult and wasted precious time writing that as the OMR sheet was given only 2 minutes before the start of the exam.”

Given that this exam is taken by such a large number of people every year, this kind of negligence and mismanagement is not at all expected. As a result of these events, many candidates are feeling cheated, and are of an opinion that their careers have be neglected and disregarded. Many are demanding for a re-examination wherein all the rules are followed. Candidates have also appealed that the exam should be taken in an online mode, to avoid many mistakes as seen in case of this exam.

When The Logical Indians tried to contact Mr. Sonam Agola, Additional Private Secretary to Hon’ble Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, Govt. of India, he refused to comment on this matter and asked us to email the query.
