    In.

    Agree abt evaluation, especially with the kind of optional we have chosen.
    I know we haven't got much, but whatever little there is - its worth fighting for.

    Hello,
    Definitely after the marksheet comes. Still don't know what worked and clicked. :)
    But as others mentioned after mains this time, savindra Singh + Rupa made simple is a necessary combo to be done.
    Atb :)
  • @nandini Ma’m wishing you all the best and luck for the personality text.
    Hope you clear it with top ranks.

    @Beuce thank you so much. And please don't think of giving up at all. Take a break. Take a week off from all of this and get back with vengeance. This exam is highly unpredictable but don't give up after the first attempt.
    I remember talking to you before mains and you had covered solid base in geography. Just give geogrogaphy and GS a directed effort now.
    All the best. God bless you :)

    No. Paper 2 went quite well but paper 1 went pretty bad. I don't even remember the numbers of questions I attempted correctly but I didn't know atleast 2 questions entirely.
