The Supreme Court dismissed today a plea which sought grace marks or removal of alleged wrong questions given in the UPSC 2017 preliminary examination.
A bench, headed by Justice Dipak Misra, said the court does not perceive any merit in the petition. The bench, also comprising justices Amitava Roy and A M Khanwilkar, noted that the petitioner who gave the exam had not given any representation to the UPSC.
The petitioner had claimed that this year’s preliminary examination paper had two questions with multiple answers and many of them could have been answered on the subjective interpretation of the examinees.
UPSC counsel told the Court that the expert panel has found no ambiguity in the question paper.
