Students agitation against #CSAT exam in UPSC is still going

Protest against the Union Public Service Commission Civil Service Aptitude Test (CSAT) is still going on. At Mukherjee Nagar in Delhi the hub of preparation for the prestigious examination aspiring candidates are observing a silent protest.

Till 2010, the UPSC preliminary test comprised a General Studies paper and an optional paper. But the pattern was changed in 2011 and Civil Service Aptitude Test (CSAT) was introduced which included two compulsory papers: CSAT-I and CSAT-II.
According to the protesting aspirants, CSAT-II has questions on quantitative analysis, logical reasoning and English language comprehension. They claim that these sections have been deliberately added to keep out students from Hindi and humanities backgrounds from cracking UPSC.
