  • @vinnyiitr Did you not clear Mains this time? I dont believe it.. you had a great score in chemistry and there could only be improvement in chemistry and others.. what happened if i may ask? Take care

    I prepared as per previous year papers and got good score (225) last year .. But this year paper 1 specially was given very different (my perception ) .. I think that might have dropped my score to 170-80 and kicked me out .. Still it is too shocking for me.. Last year 1st attempt,1st interview.. This time with better ppn didn't clear even mains ..
  • Same here @vinnyiitr mera Bhi cut gya can we have discussion on phone mine no is 9910000007
  • @vinnyiitr @ankschem In math it seems like correct attempt of 440+ got people in the interview.. however last year it was only 330+ correct attempt.. 330+ correct got them marks of 210..
    i think same happened with chemistry.. a lot of people took engineering optionals and now its almost impossible to compete.. What was your correct attempt? How does it compare to last year?
  • @vdasundi Did you get through man?

    Last year I epxected corrct attempt of around370-400 and scored 225 and this year I found paper 1 diff. With total correct attempt of 330-350 ... And expected score of 210 around .. But it feels like .. Got much less ..

  • Yeah got through.one of my frnd from Hindi medium also got through with chemistry
  • @vdasundi At last someone from chemistry... What was your attempt (total/correct) this time.. All the best for your interview.. may the odds be ever in your favour.
  • @vinnyiitr thanks man.. its hard luck.. i got stuck at prelim stage only due to some silly mistakes.. but this time we will make no mistakes.. paper 1 was very numericals oriented.. before it was not the case.. was that the factor that surprised you?
  • Around 200 in paper 1 and around 215 in paper 2 not sure abt the correct attempt .

  • Congratulations @DebuDa
    All the best for the interview!

    Just wanted to check what was your attempt in optional this year.
  • @Debuda
    pls, if possible tell ur correct attempt of last year and this year in both ifos and civils so that we get an idea on scaling.
  • @johnstewart @j2ankit 2013 Civils: paper I, correct attempt 220/250.. Paper II 235/250.. in total 455/500 ... marks obtained 115 (I) and 120(II).. total 235..
    2013 IFS: correct attempts.. 165/200 in paper I and 175/200 in paper II.. marks obtained 101 in I and 122 in II. total 223..

    this year in civils.. papers were a bit tougher than last year.. moreover space given in few questions in paper I were grossly inadequate.. i had to compromise with quality of answer in many questions. this year also my correct attempt is around 450 (220 in I and 230 in II) but this time i m expecting 10-15 marks lower compared to last year.. around 220..
