APSC Combined Competitive (Main) Examination Question Patterns
Assam Public Service Commission (APSC) has released the question pattern for Combined Competitive (Main) Examination, 2014. The mark wise breakup of question paper is different for different subjects. This would help the candidates, specially the first timers. The original notification containing the question pattern can be downloaded from official APSC website (find the download link at the end of this page). For the benefit of candidates, we are publishing the question pattern here on assams.info. As the released question pattern is all about marks, number of questions and word limit, we tried to create a simplified version. And the result is following:
