Protest Against Extra attempt in Exam
New Delhi: UPSC Aspirants demand for one extra attempt for the civil service exam ahead of the examinations to occur in 2022, and have further joined in a protest at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar. The reason has been major, due to the unpredicted and unavoidable Covid-19 global pandemic, thousands of the UPSC civil service exam aspirants are demanding an extra attempt because their preparation has been hampered and got badly affected.
During the protests, the majority of the aspirants are among those who have either already reached their upper limit or have either exhausted all the attempts last year or those who could have appeared for the examination in 2022 due to the COVID-19 issues. But on the other hand, the Supreme Court went on to reject the pleas of demanding the extra attempt for the UPSC examinations which further remained tight lipped,
But the aspirants have started a protest on demanding the extra attempt for the upcoming 2022 UPSC examinations. The protestors have circulated the posters on Whatsapp and went on to ask the fellow aspirants to join the protest at the Jantar Mantar on the 13th of October, for the demanding of a compulsory second attempt.
The poster said that “For all UPSC CSE last attempts/non-attempters who were adversely affected in the first and second wave of Covid. Join us on 13th October at Jantar Mantar,” other than that the poster even had the contact number of the person who had coordinated the protest. Not just that the poster, even requested the honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the same, “Hon. Prime Minister, please provide one fair opportunity for the youth to serve the nation,” it said.
Even earlier in July, the Supreme Court had refused to pass the directions, to the Central government and the UPSC for the extra attempt, and furthermore to grant one-time age relaxation for those candidates who could not appear in the 2020 examinations due to the COVID-19 restrictions, and difficulties. Furthermore while expressing sympathy towards the situation, the top court bench went on to say that the Court cannot grant for an extra chance.
