    Hoping for the best

    Share ur roll no. Agar mains clear nahi hua queen ka to... mazsk banega
    Are Bhai kaisa mazak.Paper ache lage mujhe,Maine honestly share kiya.agar nahi bhi hua mains qualify toh bhi theek,atleast I'll learn from this attempt and understand more about this exam's nature.Online,hidden identity waale forum pe if a person fears Mazak,that says a lot about a person's self confidence.

    @Yo_Yo_Choti_Singh

    150 marks? In all 4 GS papers and optionals combined? And what's that effectively mean in the context?

    I left 12.5 in each of the 3 GS papers and 30 in ethics.

    Effectively means left blank plus few equal to leaving blank..just 1 or 2 minutes attempted questions due to lack of time mainly..>100 in gs totally and >40 in optional :neutral:
    Being IAS... 4 U Onlyyy... :-)


    Enjoying at Home after Long Time... So DND please !!!

    Dude, why should that be the case? The number of people who took Pub ad has come down drastically. In my chennai centre not even 25 were there with pub ad. @andy133 earlier reporting similar numbers in the entire J&K.

    Moreover whenever easy papers were asked in other optionals, did they scale down? Didn't Tina Dabi score close to 300 in pol sci which was also a humanities subject? Why should Pub ad alone suffer either because of out of syllabus questions or because of scaling? Marking may be strict but still simple answers directly attacking the questions with examples from Indian settings will get good marks as usual.

    Since paper was easy .. scaling issues (those with above avg will get very good marks and those below avg will be shunted out) .. plus correction can also be strict .. but overall easy paper helps the optional !
