it was started. The OCSC camp for round 2nd was held from 13 May-30 May in
Chennai by Geological Society of India. This year there were issues regarding

OCSC exam pattern & selection process for final round was not shared with the participants. The paper had questions with multiple answers & students could know about it only when they asked about it and by the time exam had already started. Instructions were not given on Question Paper. Even the marks were not disclosed & answer sheet was not shown to the students which generated a fair amount of doubt regarding four play in selections. In any selection process it is important that assessment should be done in transparent manner not disclosing the marks and not releasing the answer key raises eyebrows.
Such Practices are not suitable and don't match the expectations of the students for the exams or contests which are conducted at International Level.
