Bhubaneswar: A day after UPSC Chairman Arvind Saxena said that the commission is planning to come up with a plan where there will be a single exam for the graduate level entries, students have welcomed such a suggesting of the Union Public Service Commission.

"It will not only reduce the exam stress but also immensely help the deserving candidates. Besides, it will be time-saver," said a civil service aspirant.

"How much will it benefit us, can be known only after going through the details of the exams that will be covered under the said plan? Let's wait till UPSC takes the next level initiative in this regard," said another aspirant.

Saxena on Tuesday said that the commission is working towards making the exams more candidate-friendly so that exam stress can be reduced and the best students can be selected.

"Students keep on trying for several jobs after graduation; all these examinations are graduate level entries, so the commission is suggesting one examination. Government ministries can also pick up students, who made it in the interview but eventually could not picked in the merit list, so that these young boys and girls will not have to appear for multiple examinations," he further.

"If UPSC is going to follow the procedure that has been adopted for selection of candidates in banking sector, it will be really helpful," said Brajesh Jha, a government job aspirant.
