How was the paper guys?

How was the paper ? Found some questions unfathomable. First attempt first Mains. Seniors please enlighten.

Comments

  • - Essay was tougher than previous years. Philosophical topics dominated. Only 2 factual topics in whole paper, that too in section 1. Section 2 was completely philosophical. Scores will nose dive.

    - GS1 was easy. Generic questions, no world history, no post independence. (Hours and hours of Norman Lowe and Bipin Chandra mugging went to waste. Damn UPSC :lol: )

    - GS2 was tricky. No opinion on score movement.

    - GS3 was tough. Sendai/Hyogo, Bose-Einstein, DDT/LCGT... Phew, that was some pointed stuff.

    - GS4. Well, GS4 is GS4. Depends on writing speed and luck. :lol:

    Rest, will discuss after Dussehra.
    2013, 2014 - Mains*
    2015 - Interview*
    2016 - IRS (C&CE)
    2017 - IPS
    2018 - Prelims, Mains, Personality Test*
