  • @DrKingSchultz and other mods, can we please stop this thread till 5 PM 9th Dec? Even if this diverts people for 10 mins, it can be life changing. Of course all the talk of ignore etc etc. But still, just a request if possible.
  • Prediction of cut off is very tough this year. Questions have so many dimensions and so many answers.

    My prediction is that cut off will surprise many.

    No one knows how they are going to award marks.
    Good Bye. See you Later.
  • Yes, closing it till optional gets over.
    @Negan , kindly comply.
    Prelims: 4. Mains: 2*. Interview: 1. Rank: NA.

  • Mains 2016 was reminiscent of pre 2010 era. Those who prepare in traditional ways will gain big time this year. Both gs and optional pretty much straight forward.
  • Analysis for what..!? To predict next year Mains..!?
    Prelims : 2/2. Mains : 0/2. 24 years. "Thats how you devour a whale ; One bite at a time"
  • cutoff:112 prelim 712 mains IYKWIM >:)
    History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.
  • GS 1 good
    GS 2 good but some questions stumped me
    GS 3 good
    GS 4 good except for those 3 notorious pub ad questions

    Geo 1 very good

    Overall satisfied with my attempts
    Hoping for the best

    Kitne zyada Lengthy paper aate hain yaar.. Likhte likhte ungliyo ki Lag jaati hai.

    Last ke 15 minutes mein toh BC samajh hi nahi padta hai ki kya likh rahe hain, buss Likhe jaao, likhe jaao, likhe jaao, ... Naa toh khud ko kuch samajh mein aata hai aur Naa hi examiner kuch samajh paata hai.. Fir bhi buss Kutto jaise Likhte jaao, likhte jaao..

    Bahut bada Mazaak hai ye exam Aspirants ke saath.
