“This is not the exam where you prepare at the last minutes. People prepare for years together,” ASG told the bench, adding, “My first offer remains”.
The Apex Court bench was hearing a petition seeking an extra attempt in the UPSC exams for those candidates who had their last attempt in the preliminary exam held in October 2020.
It also sought an extra opportunity to students who could not appear for civil services exams due to COVID-19.
Senior counsel Mukul Rohatgi, on behalf of candidates, had earlier submitted that the top court has directed the Centre to consider grant of an extra chance considering the difficulties of COVID-19. (UNI)
