This paper was rather closer to what we can expect from UPSC in the actual exam. Fairly well-framed questions and decent difficulty level as well.  

I agree. Had a higher complexity than the previous test which can perhaps help us attune ourselves to the unpredictability of the real exam.

I was wondering why , no comments on this thread! All are like crazily reading.

This test had higher difficulty level than the last open mock test , in most of the questions, I was left between two options to chose from. Also denotes there are many things that need to be revised. 

Questions have been beautifully framed

@KingSlayer23 i felt it a bit on tougher side compared to actual prelims exam. eliminating options are quite easy in them. Here I was getting stuck between 2 options.

@Archand I think last one was more like exception. More number of questions from polity section and the questions was on easier side and questions from S&T was bit difficult to handle (atleast for me). That wasn't very balanced paper but this one is indeed on the line of UPSC where you are forced to think before choosing options, as options were very close.

I think right now the practice of leaving questions and elimination is most important because eventually, we will have to face it in exam no matter how much we mug up facts.

Also it was a lengthy paper, took more time than usual to go through the questions in each round

It was an easy paper.

And I have made many ridiculous mistakes. Somehow facts have still not made a permanent synoptic connection in my brain and while attempting questions koi taar kisi aur taar se hi jud jata hai. M so doubting my memory power now.

I couldn't do well in the last mock, so if the last one wasn't UPSC like I'm glad :P 


The good thing about both the tests have been that you get rewarded for your efforts in static portions. That is similar to how UPSC makes its paper as well.

I agree. We don't find enough good mocks so I'm happy that we had one such mock. Do let me know in case you find other good quality mocks :)

@Archand shankar ias mock test 1 was good. it was conducted on 19th sep and 2nd one is today..you can check that in download section of shankar portal. i found paper well crafted and elimination technique could be used well in that.

I feel like the SFG people had an advantage in both the open mocks in terms of how the options were framed. Also, I wanted to ask what is your accuracy in the last 10-15 questions where 2 options are doubtful?

Thanks a lot! 


Will check both Shankar and OpenIAS. 


Also,@Voyager will highly recommend not to attempt any Insights test. Questions will be binary and arbitrary. Tests like Insights this close to the exam can unnecessarily demoralise us.
