The APO examination in Bihar is to be conducted by Bihar Public Service Commission(BPSC) for 3,900 applicants who passed the preliminary exam in February. However, due to the flood situation in Bihar, the aspirants have requested to postpone the exams to be held in Patna.
The mains will be held at three locations in Patna. Several candidates, who have to appear for the mains, formed social media groups in order to express their discomfort in travelling examination centres due to floods.
The assistant prosecution officer (APO) 2019 mains examinations were scheduled from August 24 to August 27, reported Hindustan Times.
