    Any of the water body where we dont find life i.e. hardly any fish life then it is considered as Biological Desert examples are dead sea, deep blue sea(far from coastlines) etc.

  • It is in rupa part 1, both low energy coast and biological desert too.. Btw biological is same, desert of primary productivity.
    LEC = salt mesh and mangrove wetlands.

  • Guys only thing I can say from the today's paper 1 and previous few years paper 1 is that the section A (physical geography) of paper 1 is becoming highly specific and unpredictable. Upsc is exploring the fringe topics from physical geography and asking highly specific questions. They are no longer focussing on the important topics that they used to ask. So only way ahead is to prepare human geography part nicely and preparing for paper 1 only what is given in standard books.

    Did you write low energy coasts ?
    I wrote it in a general sense having less biodiversity

    It is verbatim in rupa, i wrote as it is. Less biodiversity may not fetch any marks :/
    Less wave action may would have..

    Paper 1 was decent enough.Wrote hardly 0.5-1 page in pseudo volcanism and time geography which fortunately turned out to be relatively correct.rest paper was fine and on prepared topics.

    You may send paper 2 answers anytime.I will evaluate them in a few days. :smile:

    Bhai attempt doesn't matter too much, at least last year and in my case. So maintaining quality is more important.. Don't worry about 20-30 marks leaving. And compulsory questions are always non conventional.
    I left 50marks in paper 1 last year.. And on average 1-2 question in each GS.

    I found paper 2 lengthy,especially because there was so much to write.Wrote 100 word answers in 2-3 10 markers.
    I found both paper kind of 'application based', using geographical funda to analyse India's issue, regional imbalances, and current schemes/developments etc. Paper 2 was also in nature of practicality of geo. Both papers were quite general waise , required no rote learning (except compulsory), but needed to apply concepts thoroughly..

    I was so anxious due to non-revision that I couldn't do as much as I could have in P1.
    and my P2 went quite well, cause I thought to focus on non-compulsory first. I couldn't have done this paper any better. and didn't it much lengthy due to less space for each question :P

    Overall depends upon marking, but if main issues are touched I think it would be scoring.

  • Why was paper 2 space less than paper 1? But it helped manage time better
  • Left 20+15 marks
    But what ever wrote, wrote almost correct.
    Found paper 2 little bit lengty.
    I think paper was easy than 2015, but was thougher than 2016.
  • Paper 2 please ?
