First of all we would like to thank you for the tremendous response to the Open Mock. This post will clarify some of your doubts regarding the Test held and students who would like to write the Test Series online / offline.
Difficulty Level of the Paper
The difficulty level of the paper was medium. Since it was a simulator test, your scores at current level of preparation and seriousness will get you the same marks +/-10% in actual Civil Services Preliminary.
What is a good score for this test?
We will announce a good score for this test on Thursday. As of now we would request those of who have not finished the test to do so by Thursday so that you can figure in the consolidated ranklist for online and offline test takers.
Answer Key and Solution
A tentative answer key is available in the portal. A detailed solution will be provided on Thursday in a downloadable format. Errors , if any in the key /solution will be rectified by Thursday and you scores will get updated automatically when we alter the key. But please note that some of you felt that
- Paper was not very tough
- Few answers in key are wrong
This is exactly how the paper is designed. The Paper should look easy, but scoring should be difficult. The paper’s main goal was to test your basics and reveal any inadequacy in your basic preparation.
Knowing your weaknesses as early as possible and working on them as early as possible is the only way to improve. If you do not improve, you will not move ahead in your preparation. Do not carry the baggage of preparation and instead , focus on improving continuously.
The Test was easy for some
This is especially for students who took the test offline. Wait until you get the scores. We will also provide estimate of a good score for a paper of this level.
