  • Yess. A telegram group would be fine.
  • anybody qualified finally with law?
    If 50 percent of your career is not filled with failure, you're not really successful.
  • I knew only two people who could make it to interview. None of them finally made it

    Not butchered. Even last year people said law had been butchered.
    When the total no of students appearing with law in interview is so less, there is no point of butchering.
    It might be that people could not convert finally and also the no of students with law appearing for interview is quite less.

    I think a wts group may help after pre....no use of trying it on forum....many have tried earlier without use....the law people are merry into themselves and their college group...

  • Law seems to be bigger challenge to cross the average 250 marks, while other optionals makes it to more than 300. We can only fight harder to reach the higher levels if we have to see ourselves amidst others.

    Someone above 250 in law could shed some light.

    P1 79 and P2 116. My Paper 2 was pretty bad, to be very honest. And I think I had written some of the best answers that I have ever written in Paper 1. Clearly, self assessment can't be relied upon in this exam.
  • It's really shocking see marks of paper 1.. really this year is going to be more challenging..what will i do?..i am a law graduate

  • This is pathetic! How can UPSC be so blind? My paper 1 marks ruined any chances of being in the final list. I did decently in other papers.

    Essay - 135
    GS 1 - 115
    GS 2 - 93
    GS 3 - 115
    GS 4 - 111
    Law 1 - 76
    Law 2 - 150
    Personality Test - 187
    Total - 982

    There is just no way to compete with other optionals where 250 has been the norm.
  • It is unfortunate that no one, based on above data, seems to have crossed the 2 digit score in Paper 1 in law. I think it must be taken up before the Chairman of the UPSC by all of us, at least to draw his attention that one particular valuer is being extremely and unjustifiably strict in his valuation. Paper 1 was relatively easier than 2, yet such scoring puts up more pressure when we compete with students who score easily a three digit mark.

    Pls aire your views
  • No one cares dude! It's done and dusted. I am sure that with a handful of aspirants with law optional, no one scoring more than double digits, would have caught the in-charge's attention!
  • Any idea what has been the highest score?

    Any idea what has been the highest score?

    Dont know about others. Mine 250
    I have seen people scoring above 250 in other optionals and not even cleared mains

  • Atleast, we can write mails to UPSC. There has to be some flaw on part of UPSC if everyone is scoring below 100 in paper 1.

    I have seen many people scoring 280 marks in other optionals but not anyone above 250 in law.

  • I agree I think we must at least email and highlight the poor score.
  • Also any suggestion for a good test series anyone?
  • Also any suggestion for a good test series anyone?

    I don't think there is any test series for law. Nirvana has tests only for its own students.
