[CSE Mains 2014] Geography Optional (Both Papers)

edited December 2014 in Miscellaneous
Paper 1 - simpler than last year but lengthy
paper 2 - similar to last year.


I think any one scoring 220 should be happy.

I left many questions. So total attempt was 200 + 190

    Paper 1 was from the syllabus,but can't say it was easy.It was not lengthy for those who know the answers.

    paper 2 was very complex and very lengthy.Very subjective.

    Exactly.. it is easy for those who could cover whole syllabus... paper-1... i dint find it very lenghty..but yes it was lengthy to some extent.. i finished jus before the final minute.... Paper-2 i felt was easy but depends on correction.... its very generic paper like last few years....

  • Attempted 190+235
    Very subjective and lengthy. It was my first attempt. Can't predict the possible marks. Especially for those GS type general questions.

  • I think even I am out of race this year. But I won't change the optional. This is the subject which I genuinely love and with more attention towards writing speed and quality of answers, I could make up next year.

  • Pleasantly surprised by this years paper...Not that I found it very easy, but unknown, complex terms were not asked this time. Even in Map pointing, mostly known places were asked.
    Attempted around 210 in each paper...
    Agree p2 seemed more general like last year. P1 may push up scores.
    Did better than last year..(P1- 50's, p2-60's).

  • attempted 250 both papers..done goood...expecting 200+ from combined score
    ·
  • Why low participation for this thread..
    Is it becoz many geo aspirants opted for other optionals.??
