DELHI: The Government of India (GOI) asked the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to postpone the preliminary civil services examination that is to be held on 24th of August 2014.

The order came in response of the civil services aspirants who are on fast and soughing scrapping of the Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT). A group of students staged a protest on Sunday outside the residence of Rajnath Singh, the current Union Home Minister of GOI.

According to media reports, the protest is against the newly-introduced CSAT, which as per protestor believe that it had degraded the value of India's one of the toughest exam. The protestors claim that instead of providing level playing field the CSAT has created a condition of partiality for the candidates of Hindi background and other regional language.

Gaurav   The problem is not CSAT- By Gaurav

at ther core of the problem lies the fact that UPSC has also reorieneted its questions towards being more contemporary and analytical. To gain such insights, one has to refer to many sources, most of which are found only in newspapers like The Hindu or from a plethora of websites - all of whcich are in English

Any current topic also is covered in english first; add to that availability of foreign writers' books for theory part of optional subject

In these conditions, even if they remove the CSAT paper 2, i doubt it will benefit vernacul;ar students; also the tendency to mug up is very high in Hindi medium students, but this simply is not working since 2008 as UPSC is now not asking factual questions

UPSC always keeps in mind that for Civil Services candidates appear from core areas from India. CSAT being an advantage for MBAians, IITians, Engineering students and many more who are good in english and have already prepared for such aptitude exams
found easy to score, as core area candidates are not much familiar with English so they find it diffcult to clear the paper. So, it is good step forward and candidates those who are preparing for exams will get more time to study and revise the topics.

abhishek   its unfair ....- By abhishek

i don't understand why regional language people are so worried about CSAT.....English in CSAT is minimum required for being a civil servent.its just of 10th STD.why they are making mess.although its marks is not added in rank ..and aptitude shows your capability and credentials for analytic thoughts....they are just hampering exam ..instead of preparing they they are doing fast and striks....whats wrong with them yar ....:(

jai   its unfair- By jai

if removed it will be highly unfair for engg. background students, as it will bring in advantage to arts side student who studies subject papers for more than 5 yrs from 11th std. and still engg. students who came new to all these score high as they are intellectual, having good grasping power and aptitude, required for nation to support clan beaurocracy.

Prachi   Removal of CSAT shall be unfair- By Prachi

Removal of CSAT shall be unfair for garduates from enginnering, medical and management backgrounds. The Humanities people study the UPSC core subjects for their entire graduation period and thereafter as well during preparations, while the rest of the lot hardly studies them after Class X. CSAT was a good way of normalising the trade off between the factual learning by humanities people against aptitude of science graduates.

Madhavi   It\'s unfair- By Madhavi

Removing the CSAT as its not favaouring some students is not fair. A civil servent irrespective of background should atleast know basics of english which is tested by CSAT.

getting 81 score in SC category... should i go for mains prep??

by Rahil

What is process job in bihar block 

by Jitendra Sharma

Well based on the complexity of questions from constitution, Current affairs, Science and economics ....with an additional option E, it can be said that CUT O FF for General Should be around 80-82....Even many other site including VISION IAS has also speculated the cut off around 84 for General !!

 

by Surovi

ye jo log 90-92 ki baaten kar rahen unhe khud pata nahi ki what is the right answer for all question. No website has so far given correct solution for all question. I agree with surovi. Th cut off this time should go even lower than last year around 82-84 for general!!

 

by Sanjay Verma

my dob is -12/02/92 my exam centre is in tilaya on 18 dec but i had lost my admit card so plz give my roll no.  atleast so i check the result. 

by Rohit Kumar

I guess cut off this time should not exceed 85 for general category. Option Ewas very confusing.science was really the most tougest part. !!

by Bandana

at least 10-15 solutions given on the website is absolutely wrong. even most of the answers of science part are also wrongly given by VISION IAS. MY expectation for PT cut off this year should be around 84-85 for general cat. 78-81 For bc . Hardly 100-200 candidate would be able to score 90-95. so the common basis of cut off should linger around 85-82 for general Cat.
