    what about that Inter state water tribunal question
    statement 1 seems wrong ( its binding only if published in gazette , and most of times its not thats why cases end up in SC)
    "The law clearly says that it would be binding if it is published in gazette..

    Moreover it is simliar to saying that bill passed by lok sabha and rajya sabaha will be law..

    But its not because presidents assent is equally imp."

    Cauvery tribunal verdict was delibered in 2007,was binding, published in gazette in 2013. Challenged in SC under article 136,which is the arbitrary special leavr petition. Nothing to do with how binding it is
    as far as my understanding goes , the statement 1 is incomplete ( given the example of president above)

    Well, I had planned to write it online this afternoon but couldn't somehow- having already registered for it yesterday.
    Is there no way now (extended window) to write it online now? @root @Neyawn @DrKingSchultz

    Or can anyone, kindly, share the Question cum answer pdf of it?
    :'( :'( :'(

  • As per detailed analysis being shown in the account ,highest marks are in 170s and top50% are getting 136 on avg. Is it an error or people have really scored such marks? When would consolidated rank list be released?
  • Q14. Pesticides have drastic effect on non-target species. Is it true??

    One thing that I observed about prelims is not to give a lot of mocks.. A lot of mocks deteriorate the basic decision making aptitude of candidates regarding mcqs.. Its better to revise standard text books, previous upsc questions, current affairs and have a conceptual clarity.. Mocks are helpful only for those who have problem in time management of the papers.. Solving a lot of vague and ambiguous questions may result in over-thinking even in simple and straightforward questions and marking wrong option..

    And sloving lot of easy questions make us casual .last days should be dedicated to upsc past year papers to synchronize our thinking with upsc mindset .

    I guess now solving previous papers again is the only solution to this bimari.....all test series are changing my attitude towrds solving questions....none is close to how statements and options framing

    I understood this long back. The difference between mocks n upsc pre. Didn't give many in the last 3 years. Attempted free mocks of vision every year that too 2/3 papers. There is a considerable difference between both upsc n these mocks. I never scored above 100 in free mocks but ended up scoring 140,145,132 in last 3 years in upsc. So whoever is scoring less don't mind them.
    In this paper I got 95.
    Fun fact - just before 2015 pre I attempted gk today gs paper scored in 60s.. I was so depressed that i had to immediately solve one more paper to be sure of myself that it was an aberration. But ended scoring in 50s.
    Only benefit from these mocks is to identify current issues which we might have missed. Except that don't take them seriously.

  • Lol. The comments.
    This is the time for revision, you will get a few questions correct by revising more and more now, and not by solving more and more coaching mocks.
    Try solving UPSC papers again and again, there is no substitute for it.

    The single most important use of these mocks. No matter how much current affairs one covers, there will always be topics one may not have gone through. Definitely helps in covering some extra topics.
