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 ?

@prison_mike Bhai was always innocent and he was being human from the start and thus no transformation there. /s

In the essay 'Life is a journey between human being and being humane ',

I wrote the story of transformation of Sallu bhai from a black-buck hunter, hit and run case to

starting a brand 'Being human' to absolve himself from any kind of crime

Will I get marks for it ? please guys, help me :P 

P.S: I obviously included facts like Black buck (IUCN : Least Concern) and Sch 1 of WPA,1972

It was transformation of bhai's driver

Guys was my first mains, I wrote essays in 5.5 pages (my writing is quite small). Just to be sure I counted once and it was around 900-1000 words. Although I am not far off from the word limit, do the number of pages filled have any impact in essay? Experienced guys who have been in the same boat? PS: I feel I wrote well and chose unconventional topics ("Mindful manifesto leads to a tranquil self")

@Minato I guess it's more important to fill the bubbles correctly for the machine to read it, the numbers we write above may be contingency in case of machine not being able to read

shouldn't be a problem

@Minato I filled with blue pen in one of the session and in the next session told the invigilator. He said its okay. Nothing to worry. 

So maybe shouldn't be an issue.

I wrote 800 words essays in 2018 and got 126 which was a decent score in that year

Such is the pressure and compound it by my stupidity, I completely forgot circum pacific zone. No matter how I tried, could not recall and had to let go an easy 4-5 marks. My brain just to tease the fuck out of me, remembered it when I was writing about judicial legislation in the next shift. 
Ek saath hasi aur rulai, don't aa gaye! :P

In GS3 I wrote about Jal Jeevan Mission (piped water by 2024) instead of Jal Shakti Abhiyaan(question demand), which was more about water stressed districts 🙆
