FCI Watchman Exam – Selection Process
A quick look at the selection procedure would reveal that the tests have been designed to test the intellectual faculties as well as the physical strength of the candidates concerned. These are very important attributes if one has to consider the strenuous nature of a watchman’s duty.
- Written Exam: 120 Marks
- Physical Endurance Tests
Sharp intellect, quick reflexes and a physically fit body are desired qualities that would make a watchman a handy resource for any organization, especially if the organization is as important as the FCI.
Judging from the large number of applicants received by each state unit, it would not be impossible to gauge the highly competitive nature of the examinations. It has to be appreciated that the number of vacancies are also quite low.
A disproportion in terms of the number of applicants and the number of seats available invites heavy competition as well a major onus on the examining authority to not be lax in its conduct of the tests.
