This dilemma inflicted and created frustration among ample aspirants. Besides, the test was held in five phases first test was conducted in Sukkur and Larkana the test was so easy as compared to test taken from other phases which depicted discrimination among aspirants.

A commission should be made who look into matter so that many talented candidates can avail of it and may be able to appear in written exam.
