Good score in Forum Prelims Simulator Tests?

@root @Neyawn
What is considered to be a good score/rank in Prelims Simulator tests?

Comments

  • Anything over 100
    :)
  • Only the real exam matters .
    A friend of mine got some 64-65 in forum open test before pre.
    And was getting 120 plus in actual prelims 2018 as per various answer keys .
    Still it’s better to try to get good marks but there is no need to get underconfident ... :)

    Rank up to 200-300 is good.

  • In any mock, try being within 10%.

    But more than that in a mock, try to maintain consistency across papers. In simulators, what I often see is some people perform in a tough paper but will get questions wrong in an easy paper.

    Yet again, if there is domination of a certain subject say geography or polity , your average performance should not deviate a lot.

    It is only the first time you need to worry about these things. People who Clear prelims with strong study base do it every year , so it is neither that difficult nor that unpredictable - yes it is torturous and risky.

    Also do not do excess of anything in my opinion.

    By which I mean don’t solve too many questions. To keep the momentum, solve 25 questions everyday maybe , and focus on revising the books.


    Revision is the antidote to error rate.
