    Bhai bilkul sahi pakde ho aap...mein khud iss cheez ka shikar tha but after dis attempt mujhe samajh aagaya ki with so much unpredicatibilty i cant waste one more year preparing for upsc doing nothing already 26, 3 saal se berozgaar aab SIRF upsc ki taiyaari to ni krunga..1 year ki mehnat 2 ghante mein chud jaati hai..its better to move on..
    m stuck ho gya yaar.. har saal sochta hu pre fail hua toh paints ka plant daal lunga.. bc har baar final list miss by margin and cycle repeats..
    sometimes i feel god does not want me to be here.. but then after so much u feel lets do it again.. i think i have got addicted to upsc
    Bhai mein bhi isi cycle mein fasa hua hu 3 saalo se i know the feeling...par trust me we should not waste our time in upsc anymore aab jo padhna tha vo padh liya hai may be agli saal congress ki sarkar ban jae to seats firse 1400 hojae tab dekhunga...last 3 saal mein bas upsc diya hai..aajkal to aptitude or reasoning ke question bhi nhi bante aisa jung lagi hai dimag mein...par aab i dont want to waste my time i'll be productive from dis year,be it business or job but cant sit idle anymore ...its frustrating..
    Im in the same boat, seems like I wasted 3 years of my productive life ,I should not have missed mains last year which was not as random as prelims. Planned to go back to private job

    Marks drastically reduced hue logon ke...hoping Truthteller you are right
    Logically cutoff should reduce to at least 90 but u never know Kya hoga Kya nahin

    mujhe pata hai kya hoga..koi badi baat nahi cut off predict karna...cut off prediction is not akin to future prediction..cut off prediction is a logical exercise which a person who has appeared in the present exam , has past experience, rationality and courage to have independent thought unbiased by what people say or what the past cut off was can do with good level of accuracy

  • Just saw that IFoS/IAS cutoff prediction thread...and seriously I think cutoff is not going below 105 this time by the original upsc key. And if the precedent of 2013 pre exam is to be taken in account, it can go even higher. Log 90-90 question karke aaye hai...kiska luck kaha chal jaaye kuch nahi pata. Coaching people for obvious monetary reasons would predict a low cutoff.

  • @krr File your objection/grievance regarding 2018 UPSC paper in general and Einstein's question in particular. (Being an astrophysicsist by training, I agree with your observations and will file the objections myself also)

    https://upsconline.nic.in/miscellaneous/QPRep/rlogin.php?year=2018&exam=CSP#hhh1

    I think, you might want a relook!

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2122616/Einstein-proved-right-universe-General-theory-relativity-correctly-measures-rapid-expansion-space-driven-mysterious-dark-energy.html

    http://physics.ucr.edu/~wudka/Physics7/Notes_www/node116.html

    From this, we can clearly say, from Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, the Universe is predicted to be expanding. (Although, Einstein was hesitant about it. No matter what Einstein thought, his General Theory of Relativity PREDICTED an expanding non-static universe. Its quite strange for a scholar to be hesitatnt about his own theory. Hubble's discovery made Eisntein to realise that Universe is expanding but even before that his GENERAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY and scholars worked on its equations said so.
    The Question here is NOT Eisnetin's opinion despite his recorded theory but what the theory itself predicts it.
    So, Answer is all the three options. Thanks. And Most of the coaching centres true about it. Cheers!

  • Let me tell you How this Willy Willy Question Paper is gonna crash near 90+/- Marks Latitudes-
    (A LOW SCORING MATCH)-WHY and HOW?
    Overseas Grounds- (Modern History)
    There was no advantage of Home grounds as it was all like Perth and sydney without our eden(Polity and Vankhede(Current Affairs
    Unorthodox Spin- Unconventional Questions
    Most of questions were Unconventional-Many Players lost their Momentum and Crashed under sheer Pressure.
    Top Order Crashed- 130s are in range of 90s-100s
    Most of the Vaterans and Senior Players were back to the Dougouts in Nervous Ninties because of unpredictive Bouncy Pitch.
    Mentors Streatgy Crashed- Vaju-Vision Deep down in Dumps.
    Bowling Machines didn't helped-Mocks didn't help much as the have been.
    Hyderabad Bowling attack-
    Those who played lofty could be a part of russian Roulette bad luck.
    Jerkers were allowed- (Needarpan/Delhi Longitudes)
    Factual Info was too much and here it ends the beauty of good conceptualised players.
    NO Ashok Dinda and Jaydev Unadkats to be Targeted-(Easy Questions were Less)
    We miss those E-Lisa ,TRAFFIC and BASSEL questions.
    SLOW PITCH-Lenthy Paper-All rounders lost their Grips without their all time working 'rounds techniques'-Most of guys Lost there 3 Rounds Approach to eliminate more and Score more due to Time Crunch)
    LONG BOUNDRIES-Analytical Approach Needed-
    It was Analytical in some manners to logically determine your inferences- Tends to lower down Score Cards.
    Rain and Thunders- without any Forcast.-NSSO, Edible Oils,Tyagraja, Hind Mazdur Sabha, GACSA.

    UPSC with his Leaser Weapon System(LaWs)-
    Compilation and Digitised pdfs circulated thorugh Telegram were under survillence.


    -John Nash.

    All 80s must prepare for Mains 2018.

    Paper was absurd, Questions were unfeasible,
    People are inflating,, Cutoff will be logical.

    Have faith in your efforts, you'll sail through.

    please read the question again and then this article. this article applies Einstein's theory of relativity to far away distant galaxies. nowhere it says theory of relativity predicted expanding universe. and how can the theory even say that when Einstein himself "fiercely " believed that universe is static. he introduced that cosmological constant to make his theory applicable. later in life Einstein however did change his views and concurred that universe expanded. but that was in 1930's while relativity theory is of 1915

    Einstein was bang right

    Their results indicate that even far into the universe, general relativity is valid, giving further support that the expansion of the universe could be explained by a cosmological constant, as proposed by Einstein in his theory of general relativity.
