  • Pub Ad chhodh sakte ho to chhodh do. Bohot Optional ka bura haal hai but Pub Ad Geography me selected log bhi 190-225 me hain. Rarely 230+ aur 255 shayad highest hai.

    Geography ka aur bura haal hai. Pub Ad was the difference between me and top 100 rank. Got 149 in paper 1 in 2014, got 74 this year.

    I have lost all confidence in Pub Ad. I got ~380 and 134 in gs and essay otherwise I would have been out.

    Koi aur chara nhi. Ab jo hai so hai. Jo change kr skta hai change kr le. Jo nhi wo backup rkh le life me apna. Shalini Duhan got marks in 220's and she got rank in 20's. Pub ad k saath IAS bnnana hai to GS mein 400+ aur interview mein 180+ chahiye. Warna tata bye bye.

    250 last year and 197 this year. I have to get rank within 120 anyways. Anything after that is useless. I have tentatively decided to change to anthropology.

    It's a shame that UPSC has failed to promote this extremely relevant optional.

    This point echoes with me. Can you give your reason for thinking like this? Actually i want to reinforce my idea. As you have already in service, you can through light on it. TIA.

    I have undergone weapons training at NPA and NISA. I don't respond well to authority. Police training and the job as well is all about micro control and discipline. Following orders without questioning and giving orders without being questioned. I would suffocate at NPA if I stayed there for an year.

    I agree that it is necessary for maintaining law and order and keeping police forces subservient to civil authority but my freedom is of Paramount importance to me. For people who can follow discipline, IPS might be a good job.

    Our department is not so hierarchical. I can pass adjudication orders based on merit without undue interference. I will enjoy a decent amount of influence over business entities.

    I want to try the exam again for IFS since I love to travel and experience a variety of cultures.

  • @JohnSnow The variation in your paper 1 marks is unbelievable..and really sorry to hear about it. I wanted to know whether you used similar answer writing style in both the attempts in paper 1..And how did you answer them..i mean like did you use linkages with paper 2, indian context examples, thinkers' quotes etc in all/most questions.

    Sorry to bother you with so many questions..

    @deusAdeeb sir i saw your answers in a pub ad thread of 2014...your level of answer writing is obviously good..but can you please answer this similar query..Thank you.

  • Yaar.. Pub Ad to le lega lagta hai... This is my last attempt(Age wise) .... there is no option right now.. but to stick with PubAd .... Aage Kuwan Peeche Khai waali haalat ho gayi hai...

    GS pel k padhna padega ab to... GS me 600+ laana hai bas.... Aur apan to Bhagwan me bhi viswaas nahi karte hain... dua waala option bhi gaya.....So G ghishne k alawa aur koi rasta nahi hai...

  • There are so many people in the list with Pub Ad,there is no reason why we cannot make it!
