  • Paper was easy.....
    Personal opinion.

    Though left 15 marks in paper 1, but overall very good for history students. Wish they give justice in rewarding marks

    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...

    Mood bohot kharab hai kya kare
