This was said in the 23rd conference of the State Public Service Commission held in Odisha recently.”

There are also a large number of candidates who reach the final phase of Viva Voice, but fail to get the rank. Government and other organizations can consider them during recruitment because they have already undergone difficult screening process and only have to face failure in the final phase. If this happens then it will help in reducing the stress of examinations among the youth. Together they will continue to have hope for jobs.
Arvind Saxena said that several steps are being taken to make the UPSC examination process a candidate friendly.exam He said that candidates who apply for upcoming civil services examinations will be given the option of withdrawing their application form soon.
