UPSC Extra Attempt: Aspirants for the UPSC have united once more to call for an increase in the number of UPSC civil service exam attempts, stating that the Covid epidemic has impeded their preparation and studies.

Everyone has suffered a lot of negative effects from the COVID-19 pandemic. Candidates for competitive exams, particularly UPSC aspirants, have also joined the list. Many people in 2020 were unable to access sufficient coaching before correctly attempting the Civil Services Examination (CSE) due to the shutdown. The burden of the punishment fell on the students who tested positive. Since then, students have lobbied the government to take into account their condition, grant them two additional chances, or lower the exam’s maximum age. The problem made it to the Supreme Court and is currently popular on social media.

Each year, thousands of applicants take the UPSC exams in the nation, many of them attempt the Civil Services test more than once. On the other hand, the candidates assert that the pandemic has complicated their planning. Candidates are now asking for the upper age restriction and the number of attempts to be lifted due to this, especially those who reached the upper age limit or finished all attempts last year.

Additionally, petitions have been submitted to the top court regarding various tests, including the SSC, banking, and railways. In a letter to PM Modi dated May 30, Lok Sabha Member Rama Devi pleaded for two additional chances to be granted to 2020 and 2021 students who were unable to take the examinations or adequately study for them during those two years. On the same day, Rajya Sabha Member Shaktisinh Gohil wrote a similar letter to the Prime Minister.

Aspirants have taken their complaints to social media, tagging officials including PM Modi and the Department of Personnel & Training’s official Twitter account with hashtags like #2CompensatoryAttempt4All, #UPSCExtraAttempt, #2YearageRelaxationforAll, and #ExtraAttemptForAll.

So what is Twitterati saying?
