Participants in a bank recruitment test held a demonstration on Sunday in front of the Bangladesh Bank in the capital, protesting at the alleged leakage of question paper.
They demanded cancellation of the examination and retake it as soon as possible.
The job seekers alleged that the questions of the preliminary examination for the appointment of officers at five banks under the Bangladesh Bankers Selection Committee were leaked before the examination held on Saturday.
They submitted a written application to the central bank stating their demands. In the application, they claimed that the answers for the test were available online before the examination was held. Some candidates continued writing answers at some centres even after the fixed time was over.
The protesters also complained about lack of invigilators and negligence of authorities concerned as question papers reached some centres lately. And they got the printed answer script through different facebook groups just 10 to 15 minutes after the exam was over.
No exam will be transparent in the coming days if such incidents continue, the protesters said.
Contacted, member of Bankers Selection Committee and Executive Director of Bangladesh Bank Md Humayun Kabir said, "We have already been informed about the allegation and we will investigate the issue. If the allegation is found true, we will surely take appropriate action."
"From the starting of the admission process, some of the examinees demanded to reschedule the exam. Firstly they said that they could not take adequate preparations due to Covid-19. Secondly, they demanded to postpone the exam for the ongoing transport strike, and finally they have now come up with this question paper leak allegation," he added.
A total of 1,16,427 job seekers took part in the examination held on Saturday against 1,511 posts.
