UPSC Exam: No Extra Attempt For Those Who Missed Exam, Says Centre
The Central government on Friday has submitted before the Supreme Court that it will not give an extra chance to the UPSC Civil Services aspirants for whom 2020 exam was their last chance and they missed it due to COVID-19 pandemic.
The next hearing on this matter is on January 25.
The top court is hearing a plea seeking an extra attempt in the UPSC exams for those candidates who had their last attempt in the preliminary exam held in October 2020 and missed it due to COVID-19 pandemic.
On September 30, the top court had directed the Centre and the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to consider granting an extra chance to candidates who had their last attempt in the Civil Services exam in 2020 but could not appear for the exam. The top court had also proposed a corresponding extension of the upper age-limit.
