  • What about attendance at various centres ?At Kolkata centre there were 7 . 12 students were absent.
  • 16 present out of 24 in one exam Hall. Chennai

    Maybe he would have found polity and geography tough.

  • Yes. 5,6 needed deep bio knowledge. Edge for people with bio background. But i ended up not having enough time for polity section.

    Repeat of Bose Einstein was heart breaking. I could recall very little, damn.
    2017,2018 : P+M.
    Anthropology
  • Pls share the paper

    I don't think so .Geography polity History and Economy were usual GS types.Anyone with sufficient reading can write a 2 page answer .But ,Solving those Bio questions will surely give an edge
  • Can anyone explain Communal secular wala question

  • 16 present out of 24 in one exam Hall. Chennai

    Room 11 had 7 absent out of 23 total strength.

    BTW what did everyone write in the polity question on communal secular to governance.;?
  • Simmu said:

    I wrote it mainly on political lines rather than polity. Explained about political discourse changing from communal lines say regional parties, Mandalisation, Hindu-muslim to development and anti corruption oriented politics.
    Don't know how far it is relevant.... But anyway most questions were somewhat like this.

    I also Wrote on the same lines
    Center bhopal 8 absent

    I dont think absentism will have effect now as it used to be earlier when ifos mains was conducted before civils and a large number of aspirants used to skip it.

    Well most are not forest service aspirants anyway. Many were disinterested in giving the paper.

    In addition to this I wrote that governments are coming on communal agenda and they are delivering secular governance. So a kind of dichotomy has been created in political discourse of india
