  • Paper II was horrible. Very disappointing.
    ·
  • Sab Modi Sarkar ki den hai. Hindu Rashtra and Hindi Rashtra.

  • Paper2 was a bit conceptual otherwise it seems lengthy....if u have nice approach u can solve any question.... W.r.t other optionls Mathematics is tough dis time but not w.r.t to 2001 to 2004 papers... Those were the time where dere emerged a hovoc for opting Mathematics as Optional..... After 2010 toughness has reduced and conceptual clarity is exorbently increased.....

    U may see my blog. keshaw9616.wordpress.com for details or guidance for 2016

    Thanks..

    All the best for future aspirants.....

  • My take
    Paper 1 - was easy but lengthy , started slowly , but after half time hurried like anything .In some questions skipped steps . Paid heavily for wrong choice of question , but it is part of the game .
    correct attempt - 210

    Paper 2 - most difficult one in recent times . flooded with innovative problems from fluid dynamics and modern algebra . some how i managed algebra questions .
    correct attempt- 200

    rest god knows
    Optional Mathematics

  • Bhai ghar aakar to mujhe bhi easy/easily doable, etc lag raha hai. Par wahan paper ke alawa aur bhi kayi cheezein hoti hain - wrong selection of questions, calculation mistakes, etc etc. Jisko ghar pe ignore karte hain na . 50-60 marks LA difference to yahi le aata hai. Mujhe bhi aaj subah 6:19 AM pe easy laga paper. Kal paper ke time aisa nahi laga tha aur na aisa performance aaya

  • Paper-1 was lengthy with lots of long calculations. If one makes one mistake then entire 10 to 15 minutes invested would have been lost in that pressurised atmosphere. For well practised person ideas to solve questions were reachable.

    Paper-2 was difficult due to mixing of entire syllabus in each sub-sections.Even some questions were not reachable during preparations.Huge syllabus and twisting it, made this paper difficult.

    That's the issue with this optional. When you glance through the paper, questions appear to be familiar and solvable once one is adequately prepared. However, during exam one has to take into account other factors like exam pressure, time limit, etc. So, the real analysis can only be done after spending adequate time in solving the paper.

    PS I didn't qualify for mains 2015. Observation is my opinion formed over some time(years) after going through the past papers.

    Mine attempt is around 330 and my correct attempt is 300...and i know m out of the race...it was my third attempt and relied heavily on maths but got panicked in paper 2 and couldn't attempt the questions properly.
    Ur attempt is really good...u ll get through.
    All the best to u guys.
