    Man ki baat bol di bhai...Dhaga khol diya hai civils ne...Ab ek hi ummeed hai ki 10 din ke baad fir se ting na sunna pade
    ये जो मोहल्ले में बसते हैं अच्छे लोग, इनका बहुत बड़ा हाथ है मुझे बुरा बनाने में

    4 February se CSE interview hain.

    Means 4 February se pehle pehle IFOS interview poore khatam ho jaayenge....

    Mains Result agar January first week tak bhi ata hai, toh bhi hardly 10-12 din milenge interview preparation karne ke liye...

    or we can expect IFOS result this month itself.
    Haan dekho ab.. Yahi lag raha hai
    last year cutoff for mains was 652
    first rank of ifos got 803 in mains and person recommended with least marks in written got 683
    General category?

    Sahi kaha bhai .. us tinng ne sab confidence hila diya .. forest ka hi sahara hai ab bas .. isme gye to saala bhut dikkat hogi

    And it's not just about cutt off .. one has to be atleast 100+ cutt off to be sure that they can make it in the final list
  • Main toh ummeed hi chhod chuka hoon..

    Bina vajah ummeed paalkar baithe rahu, aur mains Clear na ho.... Toh bahut takleef hogi.... Pata toh hai hi ki zoology ne meri kabr khod di hai is saal..

    Zyada bigad gya kya?
    Likh hi nahi paa raha tha yar... Bevakoofi toh main khud ne ki zoology lekar.... Zoology padha hi nahi jaa raha tha Mujhse.... Prelims ke baad padhna shuru kiya tha, Uske pehle mujhe pata bhi nahi tha ki zoology hota kya hai...

    Toh galti Maine ki.. Bhugat raha hoon Uska khaamiyaza...

    Khair...

    Bina vajah ummeed paalkar baithe rahu, aur mains Clear na ho.... Toh bahut takleef hogi.... Pata toh hai hi ki zoology ne meri kabr khod di hai is saal..

    Bhai... Ye baat sahi hai.... Mera bhi kuchh aisa hi haal hai geology aur forestry milakar...Ek ummeed ki kiran hai chhoti si...Agar roshni aayi toh sahi...Nahi toh 2-3 din ro-dhokar prelims karenge.... Galtiyan pata hain ab ... IFOS is bit more straight forward and less complicated then civils..Will try to have an overlapping optional for both

    great buddy.
  • also, what was the answer you got in paper2 forest numerical? i havent been able to verify mine anywhere
  • also, what was the answer you got in paper2 forest numerical? i havent been able to verify mine anywhere

    if sum of your coupes is coming 50 then your answer is correct...
  • also, what was the answer you got in paper2 forest numerical? i havent been able to verify mine anywhere

    The correct answer is 2 I guess

    how was ur optional experience terminator
    English: last 50 marker (42+) + Precis, Essay and comprehension did well + Letter (okay-okay) + Report (Messed up)

    GS: 1,2,3,4 did well + Q5 left 2 in this + Q6 left squid one

    Forestry: Paper 2: Left 16 Marks + Section - 2 wood and paper industry strategy (written full 2 pages on relevant lines but not sure how much can i get in this) + 16 marks (ok types) + Rest did well

    Forestry: Paper 1: Left some 35 marks + Rest did well

    Maths Paper 1: may get 110+ (messed up in some simple one, step marking can improve the score)

    Maths Paper 2: may get 110+

    I appeared in IFoS interview in 2016: Based on that experience i believe forestry will fetch decent marks ... that year ... i left some 130 in both papers but still scored 170+ something. (whatever i had attempted was avg to below avg)

    Math: Paper 2 will almost see 0 scaling with a bit moderate scaling in paper 1 based on my experience.
