Scoring 116 in today's paper. I honestly did not expect to score this much because I found the paper difficult. 

What would I not give to score these many marks on the actual day of the exam.. *sighs*. 

Meanwhile, I solved the shankar ias open test few days ago and absolutely loved it. I highly highly recommend you guys to solve that paper. Very very close to how upsc paper is framed.

I gave mock today as per the ideal simulated environment which I had faced in 2020 attempt of UPSC and other exams. My ideal scenario - 

1. Less than 4 hours of sleep

2. Exam hall located at the top most floor with sun rays glaring on my face

3.  Invigilators discussing how their neighbor eloped with another caste boy

4. Just like Interstellar movie where every "clock ticking" on miller's planet was extended to 1.25 seconds as to how time flies, I did the same as every 1 second in the exam becomes 1.25 there also. 

Damn, It felt so much like UPSC real examination :|

Someone scored 197.33 in the test. How do I explain how that happens ? Because my parents are currently amazed and obsessed with the genius of this person. 

You don’t.

You just focus on doing well, not making simple / silly mistakes / getting basic questions wrong that could be gotten right from the book . Also if you don’t score well in a paper , try conquering the paper by the solving it after a few days, having prepared all the topics which you could not attempt or got wrong.

People commenting whether it was easier or tougher than the previous test, 
Me, who got same marks(~88) in both-  ^_^

On a serious not can 88 be considered a good and safe score considering mocks are designed differently than actual UPSC papers?

look don’t get disheartened by your performance at this time and instead focus on revision and improvement. If it helps or is of any significance:   i was consistently scoring in 88-95 range before my first attempt in 2019 and yet i managed to score 4 marks above cutoff in actual exams.

So I tried these in the CSAT paper. and now I know why the real exam is so mentally exhausting. 
  

Used this for the inviligators chirping.

Suggestion(personal opinion, people may differ), at this point of time taking too much open mock is also not a very good idea. Take 1 or 2 or maybe at max 3 test,  to gauge your overall performance. so that in the give short period of time, you can improve. Rather solving PYQ is always a secured idea and better idea.

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.

@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.

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. 

I wonder what has happened to insights and vision. They seem to have completely lost track of the pattern. They are fixating on the 12 random questions that upsc asks out of a 100 and replicating them to a level of 60/100.
Back when I started preparing they used to be the benchmark indicator of preparation. But now they should be the last ones anyone should be attempting especially this near to the exam.

Open Test 1 (12 Sep) was a cakewalk compared to this. I started the test 30-40 mins before the deadline and attempted 63q, 56 of them were correct. This one seemed on the tougher side. While the level of the paper seemed similar to actual UPSC paper, the options were kinda tricky.

I scored 117.33. Was expecting in the 90s and 100s. Maybe some blind guesses may have worked out. 

As others said, it was a bit lengthy. It took me around an hour to go through the whole paper. Reminded me of the 2020 prelims, where there were a lot of statements to ponder over.

Opening the test and seeing Ancient and Medieval India questions is the worst feeling lol. Waiting for the solution so I can see what I did right and wrong.

Got 124. Science questions I believe I won't get them right how much I read them. Polity, economy , modern histroy are my saviours. I hope my good luck stays with me and I am able to score something around this in real exam as well. 

Common sense ,  patience and command over static subjects are the most important thing in exam - analysis after giving mocks after mocks.

Ok I just wanna put something out here which I am feeling. After last mains I have been studying consistently and I was pretty confident of my preparation but ever since I have started giving full length mocks it’s just so bizarre. My percentile in various mocks range from 50 to 96. It just makes you question everything. When your marks vary a lot you can at least make sense out of it based on paper but why does percentile change so much. It makes the process of analysing the paper much more difficult.

+1

if anyone is looking to solve mocks now it should be to condition their brain only for the exam and the way they will have to deal with weird questions.
