@balwintejas Don't know about this poll but people have a tendency to overestimate their scores. I remember a Insights poll in 2020 prelims where nearly 15% out of 24k odd voters had a score of 105+ in 2020 prelims. We all know that cutoff could be anything but 105+.

@dwightschrute same poll has 2 parts brother....if you will see out of 3400, 2800 have also voted for less than 160 which is approx
 82% but in the main poll there were only 37% below 160.
so you cannot predict through that, if you are scoring 170+ I think it will be safe.

Some sort of overwhelming competition is there in every govt exam nowadays. I mean out of 3300 votes, 400+ people are getting 200+ scores and another 300 people getting around 190+ score out of 300 full marks in epfo. Mad mad competition!


If this had a 300+ option then also 5% people would have polled onto it!

People are so positive in the forum group!!!!! Nice.
However irrespective of that, we should go full fledge in the exam. These things will only clog our minds, thinking about the competition.

marks distribution generally follows a quite thin spread of normal distribution curve and this poll is not something like that. better to ignore it

Watch Newsance by Newslaundry to know more about this kachra in a humorous manner. 

And then you start hating these 'Journalist'! 

Edit : This show gives you general knowledge as well. Our own dear Arnob has written a book on national security. He does all the self praising of himself on the show and ask listeners to read his book which unfortunately isn't available in the market :)

This is an excerpt from Anders Ericsson's book 'Peak'. 

--

@Neyawn Sir, I know you have a lot on your plate but these are two book recommendations I hope you can find time to read. One is 'Peak' by Anders Ericsson. Ericsson, who passed away last year, was an expert in experts. After studying experts and super performers in various fields for more than 30 years, Ercisson came up with 'deliberate practise theory'. The book I mentioned is about DPT. While a lot of it may sound obvious to you but the lessons can be quite enriching to someone especially like you as you are in charge of designing courses that people join to get better at something difficult. A lot of people are aware of Malcolm Gladwell's 10000 hour rule. Gladwell had misinterpeted Ericsson's research to come up with that rule.

The second recommendation is 'Make It Stick' by Roediger, McDaniel & Brown. This book is a more accessible synthesis of all the great research in the field of education psychology and learning in the last couple of decades. This too can be a game changer in designing courses.  

Most institutes tell the students what to study but nobody tells us how to. If these principles are an intrinsic part of the courses an institute designs, a lot of time can be saved, pain prevented. 

 

I have been meaning to read 'Make it stick' for the past one year.. But somehow have never been able to get my hands on it.  My plan to read it is now pushed further by a month now considering the prelims that needs all the respect and time right now.. 

There's a pdf you'll get by google sear - What works and what doesn't. It summarizes Make it stick without missing anything important. Make it stick is a good book, which gives a good understanding of why active recall, spaced repetition and interleaved learning works but it doesn't give any way forward i.e how to implement those principles in your current learning process, what tools to use and what strategy to implement. You can safely skip it, if you read that 6 page pdf of what works and what doesn't

Its actually a good thing to remember how you attempted the paper. Dont look at it emotionally, rather objectively.
Take a paper, list down what was going on in your mind while attempting, especially try recollecting things going in your mind in questions where you were in dilemma.
If ever you committed any silly mistakes, try recollecting what led you to mark it incorrectly.
One week prior to the exam thus refer to that paper where you will note all of this. Believe me it will help you to improve your marks by atleast 10 marks!

I believe anyone can clear the prelim with decent revision of all subjects, general understanding of current affairs and through thorough reading of pyqs.

Everything boils down to controlling emotions in the exam, those 4 hours! I have seen many people even with limited preparation clearing it consistently, just because they hold their nerves, and are gutsy enough to take risks. One of my friend now in IRS told me once, prelim is a fun exercise. You will get all sorts of random questions and you should take it lightly. Last year bud settings, elephant, biochar, gopal baba.. all such questions were actually to test common sense and presence of mind.

Perhaps this time around too there will be atleast 15-20 questions which will be there just to test our presence of mind and common sense and so it is important to take prelim as a relaxed exercise.
