    Guys i attempted 390 correct....nd ws expecting arnd 220 to 230 but still nt cleared upsc vaale [offensive] moderation theory...abe [abusive] hume gs mein disadvantage hoti hai....abe [abusive] hain yeh....[abusive] upsc
  • yaar bot batao tumko kaha galti lagti hai maths mei result dekhke
  • edited April 2015
    ya I think upsc really came up with some new bullshit moderation theory as claimed by pooja.
    fucking morons
  • dekho bhailogo ab hum select to hue nhi
    so sab se pehle ye discuss karo ki kaha galti kar di
    gali dene se select to ho nhi jayenge
  • i attempted 480 out of which i am sure of 435 but strangely i too am out..... i guess there was heavy moderation around 40% or even below
  • edited April 2015
    OMG I thought I made a wise choice by choosing maths instead of mechanical engineering or some other humanities subject. It seems maths is the worst performer of 2014.
  • so kya optional badle ab
    suar ke bacho upsc
  • kwab 2012 kitte attempt die tumne maths se
  • I shall write a letter or mail to upsc abt dis unfair attitude towards maths....maths syllabus is huge nd we dnt hav overlap with gs...dis is totally unfair....upsc optional hata do...punjab pcs ka interview diya hai itna bhi kacha nhi hun gs mein
  • itna score ke baad bhi agar selection nahi ho raha then one is bound to reconsider ones optional
  • 2nd attempt tha maths le ke
  • pehle attempt mei hue the @kwab2012
  • i m also out...correct attempt close to 360...GS also went well.....
  • now I remember one thread after optional day......title was "maths one of the easiest in the history of upsc"....what an irony
  • @niti hw was ur prep
  • Dont jump the gun. Wait for the marks and then it would be better to analyse.
