    Kudos to you!

    You had an amazing session today at ORN Delhi

    You need to have a good writing speed first,but before that develop understanding of what to write in an answer.

    Practice on insights secure,IASbaba or here in forum (many good threads are there).At this point of time read a lot, do think over an issue and analyze it from various perspective. U can follow IASbaba daily Current affairs or 9PM Daily Brief of forumias. These are the best for intended purpose.

    Answer writing will come with practice,no one can help you there.So follow above guidelines and start writing.Keep going, u will improve with time.

    Thanks Neyawn 🙂

  • VivekJ2

    Thank you Neyawn!
    ! Best of luck everyone! 🙂

  • Neyawn

    I did not, but here is what I know . If there is a question on NJAC, you may indicate with a rough structure its composition . You don’t need to explain the diagram, at least in the new pattern .

    How many questions to attempt ? One more than as many you can!

  • Neyawn

    Hi, I will make sure I pass on this message to someone who sees these things at ForumIAS . Have you tried writing to ?

  • New_to_IAS_2016

    How did you managed to draw daigram for polity ? since there is no concept to draw daigram in polity, please do let me know, does word count really matters in mains answers ? how many questions max we can attempt in span of 3 hours ?

    Can you please translate “ForumIAS 9 PM Daily Brief” in hindi. I am from hindi medium. None of them provide current affairs in hindi.”The Hindu” & “The indian express” is the best for ias preparation but it is not available in hindi. Most of the students from hindi medium. Can you please start this on your website for hindi medium students.

  • New_to_IAS_2016

    Awesome .. thank you very much, i got more confidence for 2016 prelims and got some idea too .. thank you very much 🙂

  • Neyawn

    I wrote bad answers in Polity part of GS Paper 2 and was expecting 40-60 or less, but got close to 100 because i drew diagrams in each IR question and that may have helped ( I think )

  • Neyawn

    Not specific to Paper 2, but I have seen people score well if they make some diagrams even to list out things – like poverty and malnutrition can be indicated by a vicious cycle , seven qualities given by Nolan Committee by a hexagon with one quality in the center – something on those lines which you can diagrammatically represent. I mean anything you can quickly do under a minute – without being elaborate and not taking too much time.

  • Priyanka_9

    Thanks Neyawn for such an awesome article 🙂

  • mango_dolly

    Can you give some example of diagrams for GS2 apart from International Affairs questions?

  • proust
