Competitive exam aspirants demand relief due to Covid-19



Claiming that COVID-19 pandemic has brought a lot of disadvantages, aspirants especially preparing for examinations such as Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), are demanding the Government to consider their situation and allow them two extra attempts or relax the upper age limit for the exam.

Students claim that many could not avail proper coaching before attempting the exam properly. Adding to their difficulty, they cite that the pandemic disturbed them on a personal level too when family members were tested Covid-19 positive.

Several students have also taken to Twitter with the hashtag ‘#2CompensatoryAttempt4All’ tagging the education minister.
