    :+1: clearly visible from survey every optional has good success including geo and pub ad.. people write bad and fail. and blame butchering and keep changing optionals unnecessarily and complicate things for themselves.

    Sample size is small in this survey, only 400 people.
    It may happen that a greater number of Geog or Pub Ad people have filled it. eg. Physics people are hardly active here on Forum(as is evident from their only working thread).

    There were a lot of my frnds who felt proud that they were able to cram the entire Mains 365, without realizing that they would all have ended writing similar answers as well. Mains is actually a different game and we really need to have all prevalent themes on our tips and over it polish what we know in our mock tests.

    Wish all those who will fight the next battle all the best.
    The bottom line here is that we cannot blame anyone but ourselves and there 'hope' for all the optional people.
    Hope = Hard Work!

    @Nationalist bhai sorry this was my mistake I forgot to add History and added it very late , many history optional guys would have marked it as others.

  • Every one worried about influx of dejected optional candidates especially from geography... :D
    Any fool with a bit of luck can find himself born into power.

    But earning it for yourself, that takes work.

    A sample that covers 20% of the population is every statistician's wet dream .. and you call the sample size small :D

    Little knowledge is a dangerous thing (now don't bring fake votes argument). Your sole crib was about the sample size >:)

  • Butchering is for real is what my experience tells me. History butchered this year, like Geography last year.
    Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends than that good men should look on and do nothing.

    First look how pathetic people write.. butchering is complete myth,, writing GS answer in geography, history will not get ur marks.. there is no things such as butchering.. u have to give geographical angle etc..
    examiner should be able to distinguish a geography answer from GS answer.. post answers of those people who u think have been butchered, will make you understand they write poor and nothing butchered

  • I think there are 3 types of candidates that fail and cry foul:
    1. Those who wrote really pathetic answers and have no idea how they wrote under exam pressure. Overestimation of self.
    2. Those who wrote really average answers and scored below par in minimum one of the 7 evaluated papers. Again overestimation of self.
    3. Those who have a history of getting good marks or are already in services and their paper went well too, but they didn't get marks. Sure sign of butchering.

    # Just speculation
    Life is a crazy ride and nothing is guaranteed. Keeping expectations low and just trying to not disappoint people who look up to me.
