Government servants and ministers are the maharajahs of the modern time – who are ready to resort to any means to keep their source of luxuries. The civil service used the public sector as their ‘panjrapol’ where they could continue the luxurious life a few years after retirement – and in the process ruined the public sector in its formative years. The humiliations that politicians undergo to get the election ticket are too blatant to require description. Even ministers are ready to be interviewed ‘en masse’ to stick to their positions. That is why it is remarked that nobody in this country retires on two legs

Ok help me out here people,

I have to give AIMCAT 1508N today as it's the last day of the window, I couldn't give MOCK 10 as scheduled, due to various reasons and so I plan on giving it on Sunday...but the thing is CL people say you can only give it in unproctored mode for 3 days after the window gets over(i.e today,Friday,Saturday).

Which brings me to my question, is the 3 day thing true or is it just there to get maximum participation?
