The views expressed by the author, appears to be purely personal in nature as generally highly qualified and experienced experts are involved in preparation of question papers etc. in various competitive examinations.
As far as syllabus is concerned, that is based on the minimum academic eligibility requirements. In cases where only a graduation degree is required e.g. in banks clerk grade or PO examinations, there is neither any requirement nor any relevance of including subject tests. Instead tests in English language, quantitative aptitude and reasoning ability are conducted at preliminary level followed by tests in reasoning & computer aptitude, data analysis & interpretation, general/economy/ banking awareness and English language in main examination.
The said competitive examination is cited as an example only.
In my opinion it is not correct to say that the syllabus of the competitive examination don't match with the requirement of he posts.
