    Bahut applied paper tha. Needed knowledge across many dimensions.
    Plus current events of atleast 2 yrs

  • Even Static topics needed deep knowledge. Cut off surely down this time.
  • The paper was on the tougher side..last two years we had lollies, but this year it will not be a cakewalk for many..cutoff will be way lower than previous year.

  • Gs1 was not general studies but governance studies :D :| :s
    Answer milane ki himmat nahi ho rahi
    This time, my time
  • Not trivial facts or schemes or international bodies
    Conceptual polity questions
    The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.
  • cut off less than 90
  • edited June 2017
    57 sure correct (95%) + 19 guesstimate after ruling out 2 options (65-70%). Total attempt 76. Hyperfactual questions simply ignored after one read.

    Hope to get 115-120 at least.

    Cut off will probably be at par with last year or around 110 for general.
    Dead and departed general caste player. RIP.
  • Cut off won't see three figures for sure
  • Sala paper upload karo.analysis =bakchodi can wait
  • Any good soul please upload d paper
