    bhai 2012 ka paper 2015 se 10 times tough tha aur agr 2015 ka 107 ja sakta hai 2012 ka kafi kam jayega.

    bhai i hve solved all papers last year day before pre..
    i got over 105 in all papers from 2011-2014.... and in 2015 got 106.. i have mai.ntained quite consistent scores....
    the only paper that was beyond my reach was 2014. in that barely. managed 92.. so 2014 hatakar sabme 100+ laya jaa sakta h ........ 2014 was troublesome schemes like DPAP, drought schemes, crops like arecanut, highways, monastries, retina vs iris scan. and other lot of nuisance stuff..

    i peg only 2014 as the paper which may see below 95 cutoff. others will surely go above 100..

    2015 was easy because it had too many 1 word types like: fortaleza, H1N1, ebola, PMJDY, ISRO peac prize, amnestty and many others etc. . but those are difficult for senior players as they don't prepare such trivia yeh bank ssc waale log bahot select hue isliye last year. 2012 m conceptual the...

    This is for the likes of us; from the very same poem:

    Footfalls echo in the memory
    Down the passage which we did not take
    Towards the door we never opened
    bhai aap toh god mode m aa gye ho ekdum. TS Eliot is what we love........ will surely read some stuff after pre to put in essay...... will ask u for suggestions then.

  • 2012 paper was way too tough. Cutoff must have gone less than hundred in case paper two was not there.
  • @DrKingSchultz bhai yeh sab funde woh lagate h jinko bahot kam knowledge hota h ... unko 35 -40 questions pata hota h..,, fir woh shuru ho jaate h .... unhe pta h waise bhi unka hona nhi agar yeh nhi kiya toh.. people who are sure of 55-60 questions in there first round of paper hesitate to do such nuisance.... drkingschultz aapka k.nowledge accha h apko yeh sab karne ki zarurat nhi padegi.... and bhai log bahot misguide karte h... .select hone k baad aap bhi bol sakte ho mene 100 book padhi roj 19 ghante padhta h sirf ghante sota tha..... select hone k baad log bhagwan bana diye jaate h.... kuch bhi bol sakte ho fir.... jo select hua h usse fir exam dilwa du ussi same paper ka kisi aur din and copy kisi aur examner ke hath m ho toh shayad uska mains na nikle.... ya din kharab ho toh pre bhi na nikle..

    bhai yeh sab aap mat socho.. just get basics right.. i did nothing last year just basic books and vision ca..... itne se i assure u aapke 100 + toh upsc k sab paper m aa jayenge., but i feel agar conceptual hua toh cut off will go low... people are good at factual stuff thats y it was on hgher side last year.. plus iss baar last year se kam log denge,.,. cause no more 6th attempt guys in scene. jo 2014 and 2015 m the.. test series m balance nhi hota paper isliye kam aate h.... upsc balanced paper deta h.... so 90 tak easy hota h pahochna...

  • Last year's paper had many cake walk questions, so a mortal like me who used to score 90-95 in 2012, 13, 14, crossed 110 in 2015. So I think cut off for that years were quite low may , be 90

    haan who factor bhi hai....but if you consider questions on PMJDY, NITI aayog, etc..I think you can deduct atleast 10-12 marks from the cut off..as these cake walks were not there in earlier papers..but It is a futile exercise . We do not know how will be the paper....attempt all the questions which you know or which you can guess. can be between 75-100
