Group B Exam

UPSC Civil Services Examination is one of the toughest examinations in the World (not to feel very proud of that) because I personally feel that it does not actually test what is required in a particular officer. So UPSC does not know what it is actually doing. What it knows is that there are around 6 lakh students applying for the examination and they have to eliminate all candidates and make a list of 1000 odd aspirants every year.
