How tough or easy was Gs1 and 2

I did find the papers to be on the tougher side with few questions demanding specific answers. So I wrote very generic answers in a few which won’t be fetching a lot of marks I guess. Gs 2 was imho tougher than last year paper. But then again I didn’t appear for last year and in the exam hall no paper seems easy 😄

I thought population education is awareness about family planning. :3 

Wrote accordingly

People saying GS 1 was easy. I somehow did not find it to be easy. Some questions were very specific like population education, volcanoes in 2021, uniqueness of tribals etc. Wrote generic stuff which wont fetch marks. Ignored world geography so mineral oil and mountain chain question was also messed up. Maybe lot of people with Geography optional. Anyway, have to focus on the next papers.

This shouldn't be totally incorrect:

"Formal population education is designed to teach children in school about basic population issues and, in many cases, to encourage them eventually to have smaller families."
