Mains 2020 : Essay and GS Discussion, Issues, Difficulty Level, Way ahead

Hello All, Essay paper is done. Question was a bit weird, at least part A where quotes were also not famous types. How did people approach the essay paper, which topics did you write on ? Did you use whitener anywhere? Did you do rough work ?

The essay question on Culture and civilization reminded me of a chapter from NCERT Hindi Book of class 10. It was an essay on "Sanskriti" written by Kausalyayan.

*It's in Hindi language.

UPSC seems to have taken high ethics score of 2019 on its ego. Found it tough, more so because of lengthy case studies.

UPSC seems to have taken high ethics score of 2019 on its ego. Found it tough, more so because of lengthy case studies.

They were not case studies. They were CSAT comprehension questions.

I messed up case studies section brilliantly. Took 25 mins to solve the 1st one and then went guns blazing to complete the paper on time. Bye bye mains 2020.

Just because you get enough people writing full paper doesn't mean it's a good test.

Tragicomic incident: wasn't able to finish GS3 paper on time. When invigilator began collecting paper I began writing the last answer. Thought of drawing a map quickly. Brain- hand coordination was zero. I actually forgot how the Indian map looks like and how to move the goddamn pen. Couldn't complete the paper but thanks to the dude before me who kept the invigilator waiting. 

P.S. I draw maps for optional. 😂

So, did you complete the paper or not?
