  • Are we allowed to carry design data book in exam ?
    nothing is allowed except calculator and geometrical instruments, every data, chart is given in paper itself ...

    bhai it was a trick qs from ese 14, you had to assume these values (according to made easy solution).... I left this qs!

  • Everyone will get different answers also range of answers will be huge.
    There was also a transportation model question with no data on supply demand ;-(

    not to worry, 70 days are more than enough to clear ese with the kind of rank I got. prerequisite is that you must have basic idea of all the subjects by now. I started for ese in April 2014, was covering four gs paper of mains and did some basic study of optional before April.
    if you have basic idea of mechanical subjects I would advise you to do the following-
    1. buy madeeasy handwritten class notes as they can be covered in time crunch.
    2. go for test series. if you stay far from Delhi, get an online test series package.
    3. buy previous year solved papers of ese (must for clearing this exam, especially objective papers) .... preferably made easy publication.
    4. since all of us are preparing primarily for cse it's difficult to manage time for both exams, even then you must devote atleast 6 hours for ese prep april onwards.

    that was precisely my approach ... ;) atb

    Kanban and riser design numericals any source ?
    difficult to find kanban in any standard book .... try to search ppt on internet .... scribd can be useful .... solve numerical on single and double card systems, that would be enough

    riser design is succinctly given in made easy class notes ( easily available in ber sarai, delhi ).... easy to understand, also kalpakjian has given this topic ....

  • Riser design numericals are not there in kalpak jian . FOund some in pn rao but those are based on constants and variables not like upsc.
    Are u talking about made easy class written notes or printed ? I have written only .

    i have hand written notes ... there are two or three standard solved examples (upsc type) in that copy ....

  • Hello everybody. I wrote 2013 mains with geography and missed the interview call by 14 marks. Now i decided to change my optional to mechanical engineering.Do you think that it is possible to cover the syllabus when i was not in touch with ME for last 4 years? And help from all of you will be appreciated. Thanks

  • @raoshahb nothing is impossible, sir. it depends on your ability and aptitude. if you are planning to give mains-15 with mechanical... it will be quite tough to get mastery over the subject if you start in April. Go for mechanical only if you are well prepared with gs papers and if you are above average in managing pressure before exams. mechanical papers are scoring if you are well prepared but disastrous if you are not prepared. There is no jugad in such optional subjects and competition is not easy either.
    Think wise and twice before you decide since there is no going back after that.

  • hello everyone !can sm1 tell me about toughness level of ifos mae paper?is it feasible to take it?my first attempt will be in 16 and i have chose history as optnal.and abhi tk bs pass krne k liye padha h mae!so concept hile hue h!pls help.advice.pls!

  • @ raoshahb
    Changing an optional in ne try doesnt seem wise.Dis u appear for 2014 main?

  • @absrockss Breakdown down of ur marks please in ese.
    Also what ws your attemlt in conventional and any strategy to rmmbr so many things ?
    ·
  • @peskyelectron my ese 2014 marks

    general ability - 136
    objective 1 - 131
    objective 2 - 99
    conventional 1 - 50 ··· attempt~ 120
    conventional 2 - 83 ··· attempt ~ 170
    written total - 499
    interview - 120
    total - 619

    because of steep increase in cutoff last year, marking in conventional was tough this year.
    for remembering things try to make last minute notes, example- one page for each topic which contain only important formulas. other than that buy madeeasy handbook which contain formula and key concept of each topic.... important to revise it a day before exam ....

  • @absrockks 120 correct attempt ,i mean till end solution ?or u wrote just 120 marks ,rest left altogether.
    Also 120 questions for 200 marks does each question carry equal weightage. Seriously ,why so weird ratio
