    i have joined it this year..

    if you need papers then tell me i can give you..
    check hue hi nahi mere 3 papers ab tak
    . and afa history is concerned... nothing beats Reading. core reading... no class no kumar no ranjan no shit.. just read.. read.. read..

    just that the test series can give you a greater perspective of questions (which can again be had with reading) but that's it boy... will share model answers of gs score once i reach home...

    Paper 1 not easy, compulsory questions won't let people go beyond 100 in most cases.
