Candidates are not being able to submit their application on time due to server issues. 'The receipt of SMS and Email OTPs by the candidates is taking a little longer time, as the number of applicants using the GOAPS site is drastically increased for the past two days. Therefore, requests the candidates to go ahead with filling the application and payment without waiting for the OTP verification. The OTP verifications can be done even after the payment,' says the exam conducting body.
Further candidates who wish to make changes in the exam city preference, will be given one-time chance in November. For making changes in date of birth, name, details of parents, address, exam paper, etc candidates can login to the GOAPS portal as and when it is notified in the official website.
