    Yes I left 4 questions outright.. In the question of Information Asymmetry, I superimposed Welfare function to show how markets failed.. Really keeping fingers crossed.

    What about you? How did u do?

  • This year will be tough for eco. Absolute carnage. I have left 30 marks compulsory. Apart from that, one 35 marks worth in 50 marker set and a few other 10 markers, I expect max 30% marks.

    I believe that it is same for most of us. I also think that either normalisation is a myth or doesn't work the way it should.

    Hope some compensation in P2 but from past experience, hope doesn't work @ upsc.
    Eco is no more a 200+ safe floor optional. While 1-2 nuts each year was a norm, this year they have gone beyond nuts and asked anything under the sky. One Dominic Salavatore is unfinishable and they have now gone beyond.

    True that. We are all on same boat. Don't think anyone could have done much better.. I know from IFoS papers that normalizing does happen.. 2 years back Geology paper was very tough and people got much better marks than expected.. Hope they are fair to Eco optional this year..
