    Paper 1
    Didn't feel like practical paper....could attempt just 70-75 mark practicals ....rest theory only.
  • Same with me.. 75 marks practical. Options were such that one could not have attempted more than 70-75 marks practical
  • Practical part of Paper was good.

    Theoretical aspect of Paper, which is in CA syllabus, was also fine.

    And rest of theoretical part was GS cum Optional. :)

    But I think you guys will score good marks, considering the very less aspirants of Commerce and Accountancy and the relative difficulty and scaling of other optional subjects.

    Aspirants with Management, Maths and Science subjects are cursing UPSC for very difficult and lengthy paper.

    Its not about paper's difficulty or lenght, but about how one perform against rest in same subject. .....☺
  • in paper 2 nothing was covered from the standard books especially the 20 markers
  • Very few people commenting on this thread. Has number of commerce people fell significantly? Please update your attempts in both papers
  • Paper 1 was good.

    Paper 2 more of management than commerce... Really difficult n outside the framework of syllabus.

    Let's see what will be the marking pattern
  • edited December 2015

    Less commerce students this time I think because of removal of csat. At my center, 3/297, at friend's center 2/~300, another center 5-7/~300
    How much were at ur centers ?
  • 1 out of 250-300 people at mine
