Public Administration-2018 ForumIAS answer writing and Review

Students of public ad Optional can post answers on every alternate day Monday, Wednesday, Friday till 9 PM in evening and others will review your answers after 9.pm
Sample senario: (A answer is posted on Monday , others will check and review it till Tuesday and no review of any answer(pdfs) will be posted on Wednesday ,when only new answers will be posted till 9 p.m again)
i propose this to make this process more structured
Rules for Posting answers
1. Only PDFs are to be uploaded and atmost 3 answers in it and one person can post only one pdf in one cyle (i.e Monday-Tuesday)
2. Use Cam scanner or Google drive (preferred) to scan the pages to PDF
3. While posting answers one must list one word tags for each question ( eg if answer is abour CPM , just write Q1- CPM ) , this will help others to read only topics they want to
Rules for reviewing
1. The review must start with marks out of 10 (on lines of UPSC checking) (ie7.5-8 will be among highest)
2.Review answer(s) in point wise method (if more than one answer is posted )

side notes :
If possible we could compile the answers (of most probable questions to be asked in UPSC)as Insights team does at end of each week /month with best model answers

We could host a Test marathon posted on saturday , whose answers should be given till sunday evening (no review could be possible)
no Bakkar in this thread ( i am in , side comments etc type comments)

google drive links , disqus links can also be posted , but its HIGHLY recoomended to upload files here as shifting platforms is cumbersome and reduces efficiancy

@mango_dolly @IWRA @Indian_Raider_ @NWS please look into this @ForumIAS @Neyawn
it would be beneficial if mods could make it announcement (for like 3 days-week) so that all could see this thread and contribute accordingly
all logistics and other discussion can be continued at http://discuss.forumias.com/discussion/29078/logistics-discussion-of-pa-2018-thread?new=1

    Hello, guys. I've appeared multiple times in the mains. Last scored 260+ in PA in 2016. Would you like to be part of Weekly tests ? It will be one chapter for every week, starting with paper 2.
    It'll be a 2/3 hour test of one chapter. We'll cover all the PYQs and one test series from market. It'll have be written on paper and PDFs uploaded via Telegram. I'm sharing one of my copy from a test that I took myself.
    If you know someone who have done well before, try asking them about this as well.

  • We just need few enthusiastic souls. The game would be afoot in no times.

    See the format of this thread and how it ran till 164 pages. This thread is very dear to me because I learnt much of my pub ad from here.

    http://discuss.forumias.com/discussion/7274/public-administration-2015-covering-new-syllabus/p1

    Its right time to create a new thread with same vigor and commitment.

    Go through that thread and few pages to understand how beautifully it worked.

  • Can someone share Lukmaan question papers of test series which is ongoing.
