CSAT shouldnt be done away with!!
English is necessary in a globalised world... not just globalised world, in India which is so linguistically diverse! If an IAS hopeful doesnt know basic english(it IS basic), how will he make executive orders, understand Constitution which is supposed to be the Bible for any civil servant??
And, besides, there are Provincial Civil Services for which one doesnt need any English... does the so-called aspirant want to serve the nation or just bag an IAS post? This is ridiculous.
I know the education system isnt uniform across the country, but if one aspirant cannot overcome the simple challenge of learning basic English, how can he think that he'd be fit to face bigger challenges after being taken into service, where he would have to act with a sense of urgency? There are sooo many 'spoken english classes' in every city, town, etc. Without any help also, one can learn, just by reading... and 1 year is more than sufficient for that. It's not like UPSC gives you 1 attempt, people have got 4/6/unlimited no of attempts for various sections, that itself should make one grateful to UPSC.
Coming to mental ability & math , it is needed to test the quickness, accuracy, which are required in such a big service with big responsibilies... when an officer goes through files, he has to review various statistics, that with quickness, if the statistics are right, etc. Yes, the subordinates are responsible for getting stats right, but it is a civil servant that has to sign a file. 
So what if Engineering students have an advantage over humanities students??? The former are not used to topics like history, governance, economy, we see them complaining?
Also, it's only students with "Hindi" background complaining, have we seen South Indians complaining, anytime? Infact there are South Indians that have a problem with both, Hindi and English ..
Anyways, I dont see these 'agitators' or other silent dissenters across India to be doing any better, even if UPSC decides to do away with CSAT. It's just their attitude or spirit that'd bring their downfall...
