Mains 2021 - Strategy, Doubts, Resources etc

Hi peeps! 

Prelims result will be declared in 2-3 weeks. We may make it, we might not. Speculations will continue till then.

This thread is for those who want to move on. For those deciding to focus on the next phase of their prep; perhaps the most crucial one. We have less number of days this time (only about 85 days left). Let's collaborate and make the most of this time.

Here are the links to previous year's threads. Do go through them. There are gems in there.

https://forumias.com/post/detail/Mains-2020-Doubt-and-strategy-discussion-thread-1601963441?page=1 - In the description of this thread, you'll find links to paper wise threads of last year plus some handy resources.

https://forumias.com/post/detail/CSE-2022-Plan-Strategy-Daily-Routine-1633964267?page=1 This is the daily routine thread created by@nerdfighter. You are free to post your daily targets and hold each other accountable. Or just lurk there and be motivated by the effort people are putting in day after day.

Here's the thread. 

You (or anyone else) can create individual threads paper wise (GS1, 2, 3, 4 and essay). I'll pin them in the description.

Bro, keep controversial questions as negative then decide how much you are scoring. Rest everything will go around in circles.

I am hoping to clear this year's prelims too (third attempt, if cracked, it will be my second mains). I got 111 in essay last time. I used whitener in that paper a lot but after coming out of exam hall I read on notice board that whitener isn't allowed. Could that have had any impact on my essay score (negative marking)? How to go to 130 and above in essay from 111?

the key imo is not to write monotonous, extra objective answers, giving it a human and personal touch will be rewarded well...abstract essay, in general, has a higher scope of gaining an advantage, try to exploit that.

my optional psir and quotes from thinkers also came handy..hoping it will work again this time.
