In GS 3 paper, I sat fr 2 minutes and was like.. "How do these people know so much in these questions? " 😂😂 I am glad the torture of my hands is over.. gear up fr optionals.. GS went poor.. but lets see.. cant be complacent.. will try best in beloved optional 😂

A question paper having an extra middle sheet is an ominous sign.

screwed up all gs and essay too.. left 4 10 markers in gs 4, one 10 marker in gs 3, two l0 marker in gs 2

one 15 marker in gs 1

none of answers were filling the complete space provided.. seems i was the least prepared :((

but i didn't do creative answer writing in any question.. wrote what i thought was making sense to the question.. 

though..its not over untill its over

Arey...apne Adde ka naya url. 

Good part about gs tests - could finish all qns. 12 with good handwriting. Rest with bad handwritting. 

Call out to LA Excellence for giving us bechara people lunch and tea. Classic case of : govt promises, private sector delivers. 

Bad part about gs tests - numb hands, back pain and chaotic mind. Will analyse the qns after break. 

Hope all of you are having epic days so far. 

Koti centre??

Anyone else have Dholpur House as their centre? 
We were told on both days that people tested positive for covid and couldn’t give the paper. 
One wasn’t allowed in on the essay day, at least 1 positive case yesterday (didn’t give rest of the papers) and 1 today in our hall. 
Across the 3 days several people coughing, no social distancing, not even proper masking up. 
Don’t want to complain but UPSC in their press release said that people with symptoms would be seated separately, nothing of that sort. 

Hopefully the centre doesn’t become a hotspot :/

At my centre near Jor Bagh a lady candidate left  midway as her health deteriorated during GS 3.

She probably didn't come for GS4 as well.

I am myself down with fever. Managing somehow on Dolo

Talk of social distancing in exam hall and a separate room is all scam. 

2 people sitting on one small bench is the norm. In one room, there were 60+ students sitting.

@itsvarun focus on optionals now as it can be a make or break situation..had left 105 marks in gs last year but was able to secure an interview call though got only 237 in optional(left around 50 marks here as well)..all the best for optionals and language paper(don't take it too lightly)..

@leftfaithinmyself  total was around 150 160 marks counting optional but that doesn't matter as was able to clear mains by just 4 marks..though last year upsc had gone bonkers with interview marks so with 215 could have gotten irs..its just stupid that they are reducing the mains the cutoff and increasing the relative importance of interview which is much more subjective (got 171 which is not bad but not great either) lets see what happens this year though answers like who guidelines are as good as leaving them blank..
