SSC FCI Mains(Tier 2) Paper Cancelled

SSC FCI Mains(Tier 2) Exam was cancelled today. In a big blunder by SSC, organizers sent Technical question paper(which was scheduled to be held in the evening session) in the morning session to all the centers in the country.
Students were really angry and disappointment over this blunder by SSC organizers.
Now the rescheduled examination will be held in the coming few weeks. But it will create problem for candidates who have filled the form for other PSU exams and it might clash with the SSC FCI exam to be held very soon.
Share your thoughts.
