The Bangladesh Public Service Commission (BPSC) has published the final results of the 36th Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) examinations.
Some 2,323 examinees have been recommended for various cadre positions, according to the results published on the BPSC website - www.bpsc.gov.bd - on Tuesday.
BPSC Chairman Mohammad Sadiq told the Dhaka Tribune that 5,631 candidates had passed the written and oral tests. "But as this is a highly competitive exam and we also have limited vacancy in posts, just 2,323 of them have been recommended."
He said the rest 3,308, however, were kept in the waiting list of non-cadre posts. "They will have to wait until they are given first or second grade non-cadre positions. We have written to every ministry and asked them to provide jobs to as many of these candidates as possible."
Any candidate can access his or her result via SMS by typing PSC <space> 36 <space> registration number, and then send it to 16222 from any TeleTalk mobile phone number. A return SMS will show the result.
The results of the 36th BCS written test were published on February 7 this year. A total of 5,990 candidates had passed that.
Before that, more than 200,000 candidates had sat for the preliminary test, and 13,679 of them were cleared for the written test.
The BPSC in May 2015 had published the 36th BCS examination circular seeking applications against 2,180 posts. The number of the posts was later increased to 2,485.
