UPSC Civil Services Exam 2011-2015: Varun Gandhi Stands With Rural Aspirants For Compensatory Prelims

New Delhi:  The tussle between CSAT 2011-2015 candidates and UPSC has got a new dimension. Varun Gandhi has stepped in to support the candidates demanding for a 'compensatory prelims' for UPSC Civil Services Exams held from 2011 till 2015. Introduction of Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT) in 2011 sparked rage among UPSC aspirants, especially those having non-English educational background. Though, from 2014 it was considered 'qualifying', candidates lost 'four precious attempts' meanwhile. CSAT was introduced in 2011, replacing optional papers in UPSC civil services exam prelims, of which English section is a part. Implementation of the change in UPSC exam pattern proved to be a serious disadvantage for candidates with vernacular educational background and also those with non technical backgrounds. 

'But, we must bear in mind that many UPSC aspirants have invested significant time and energy in the period 2011-2015, to pass UPSC preliminary exams with flying colours. Their efforts must be recognized and duly compensated,' reads the petition by Varun Gandhi to the Chairman of UPSC.

 
Requesting the exam conducting body, UPSC, for a compensatory preliminary exam for the aspirants Varun Gandhi has urged the Commission to give them a fair chance.
