But, the OPSC challenged the order of the single judge bench in a writ appeal and a division bench headed by Chief Justice D H Waghela on Thursday upheld the earlier order.
The OPSC had decided to hold the examination for recruitment of 69 posts of civil judges in the state.
Earlier around 2,000 aspirants had appeared for the examination in which as many as 26 out of 100 questions were either wrong, out of syllabus or contained typographical and grammatical errors.
