    I attempted two from western and three from Indian. Initial plan was to do the opposite but got stumped in the exam hall since my logical positivists part was not that strong so had to attempt 3 Indian. I am personally stronger in Western. For Indian, i had mugged up amba vermuris notes inside out.

    Also solved upsc last 17 years answers and had mugged them up for both the papers.

    For paper 2 i attempted 3 from socio political and 2 from religious. Here also plan was opposite but got stumped by non theological. So had to do generic socio political questions.

    I quoted a lot of thinkers and also used contemporary examples, made my own notes from youtube and the net also.

    No coaching, no books.

    Wrote LOTS of answers in exam conditions, day and night. Self evaluation. Compared my answers with athar amir's and ravi agarwals.

    Attempted 500 marks fully. Was satisfied with most of it. However, i don't know if my philosophy went well. GS and essay was really good, so only after final marksheet i can comment about philosophy.
    I am from general category. Hope that helps bro.
