  • @nchetia,
    After publishing official answer keys, APSC had invited complaints related to wrong answers. But the answer keys remained same. Either no one filed formal complaints or they ignored such complaints. According to RTI cell, they identified 2 or 4 answers as wrong and allotted equal marks to everyone attempting those question. As the Mains is already over, raising the issue by joining hands with others will be the best option for you.

  • After RTI I got my 2014 preliminary answer sheets where I secured 208 and 12 wrong questions from GS n 6 from optional are not added to the total .
    What should do now ? Should I go to the people who are fighting for the cause or just stay calm n watch the game going on these days . Please guide .

    No. You can’t change your Optional Subject for Prelims. But if you clear the Prelims, you’ll get a chance to choose two optional subjects for the Mains.
