The results of the written test of 40th BCS will be published in January, although it is not possible to publish the results in December 2020.

The information was obtained from the Public Service Commission (PSC) on Saturday.

PSC chairman Md. Sohrab Hossain said, “It is taking a long time to recheck 8,000 exam-sheets. So even if there is a desire to publish the results in December this year, it will not be possible. However, the results will be published in January.”

The results publication is being delayed as some of the exam-sheets went to the third examiner. The exam-sheets re-evaluation may end in the middle of next month.

PSC public relations officer Tripti Kona Basu said work was also being done on Friday and Saturday to publish the results. “However, it will not be possible to publish the results within this month. But I hope the results will be released next month,” she said.

A total of 4.963 lakh people registered to take part in the 40th BCS. A total of 3,34,038 took part in the test. 20,227 people were selected in the preliminary examination. The written test was held from January 4 to January 8.
