The strike over UPSC Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT) is not over yet, but UPSC has allowed students to download their admit card for Civil Service (Preliminary) Examination 2014.

The civil services examination is conducted in three stages - preliminary, main, and interview - to choose candidates for Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS) among others.
UPSC had already made the arrangements for conducting the Civil Service (Preliminary) examination on Aug 24. Even then, the students are demanding that the examination should be postponed.
The students want the CSAT scrapped, saying it discriminates against those candidates who are from the humanities and Hindi background. They have been objecting against the aptitude test and English language questions asked in the CSAT II paper, claiming they were much above the standard prescribed for the examination.
But the question is, will central government will change the pattern of CSAT exam and postpone the examination?
