  • In absolute terms cutoff will decrease because Upsc will have strict marking this time.In relative terms it might increase given lesser number of seats this time.

    you sure of upsc going for strict marking? any info as such?
    last yr some were talking abt upsc doing rechecking for gs papers and strict marking ...but exactly the opposite happened. even subjects were not normalised.
    though i have a hunch that gs4 will be marked strictly to bring it at par with other gs papers...
  • I think same.. Considering only 13000 mains candidates n 2500 interview candidates.

    60 days checking
    15 days time for interview
    45 day for interview (5 days week.. 80 every day 400 every week) so 6 weeks

    In worst case By March end upsc might give final result this time

    I think essays were more subjective this time.last yr thy were more objective that pushed average score upwards..natural law,new women,joy kind of essays made essays more subjective and wider range of marking.
