There is a demand of all these students that in the exams which have been delayed due to Covid. These students should be given age relaxation and 2 extra attempts should be given. This is not their fault that exam got delayed due to pandemic. Many such students were preparing for these exams, who were in the last year of the age limit or was it his last attempt. If the exams are delayed due to covid, then these students will be declared invalid due to old age.

UPSC students are also demanding age relaxation and 2 extra attempts in all central government exams.  Thay are demanding age relaxation (including aspirants of 2020, 2021) in all central government exams (UPSC, SSC, IBPS, SBI, RBI, etc).

The Government of India is playing with the future of the students. Students were most affected during COVID-19 and lost their precious chance. NSUI demands extra attempt for UPSC, IBPS, SSC, JEE exams and other examinations.

Why Students Demanding an Extra Attempt?

When UPSC announced the postponement of the exam, it had also allowed for the opt-out option, where the aspirants were allowed to withdraw their name if it would be impossible for them to appear in the exam. However, there was no such option given to last-time examiners who had reached their age limit already for appearing for the UPSC civil services. Similarly students who are preparing for SSC and other central Government Exams protesting for same demand.

Few State government has announced age relaxation but central decision from Central govt. is still due.
