    You can add anything you want. Literally anything.

    But the board is mostly not going to be impressed. They've seen and done it all. However, every single word you mention will open you up to a lot of areas and possible questions which you need to be able to defend.

    Therefore, if you are sincerely interested in these areas and can engage in meaningful conversation involving these areas then by all means do include them.

    I included a lot of achievements last year because I was naive and i wanted to impress the board with my profile. In the end I had to prepare 5 times more content and had a horrendous time preparing for the interview.

    This time I'm just going to lay low and not reveal anything. Simple daf and chill.
    Leaving forum for now. All the best to everyone!

    Then I will exclude the blockchain part, sincerely I want them to engage in this driver drowsiness thing.

    If there was anything meaningful I did in my college days it was those publications. Sincerely would love to engage in a discussion on those rather than, why do you think your state did not allow for smart cities or why Lynching, given i have a bit of ideological bias.
    And given the overt right wing bias that is considered normal nowadays, I don't think that will bode well

    @pizzza

    Provisional degree certificate can be sent now.
    You can collect the original degree certificate after the mains exam and submit it during the interview.

    I'm not sure about scanning marksheets of the semesters and sending it. Best would be to call up UPSC and clarify the doubt.

    And don't worry, it's not a big issue. UPSC is lenient in such matters. Just call them up and do as per their advice.
