Baaki SAB to theek hai (मतलब सह लेंगे)

पर ये कुछ "चंचल तत्व" , अब अगले साल.... पेपर से 15 दिन पहले हल्ला मचाएंगे कि देखो commom sense से कैसे करते है। बर्दाश्त के बाहर होगा वो 😂😂😂😂😂

Bhakkkkk

Honestly, there were not much questions that could be solved with the "tips and tricks".. I had a feeling pehle hi ki youtube pe bahut videos dal gayi hain.. UPSC walo ne dekh hi li hongi.. .. UPSC be like " Ab lagaao LOGICS "

Random factual questions...Honestly I haven't expected that sports related questions and single line factual statement type questions are always tricky.. Needed a little bit of luck..

Hoping to clear prelims with 102 +/- 5 marks... I had  a pretty goood csat paper as welll.. 
I am shivering.. I hope the answer keys that I checked are not wrong... 


Which answer keys did you refer ?

IAS baba, clear ias and byju's 

(byju's keys are very wrong. they have got very obvious questions also wrong.. refer to it as per your own discretion).

I am just waiting for forum to release their key now to see if the deal is sealed or not.

Last year post exam I felt the paper was tough, later I felt it was doable. This year post paper I was on the verge of tears, but on the same lines I would say the paper was doable. Polity will always be a reliable friend, economics too. Even for environment I feel instead of being current affairs heavy, having a good understanding is key. I didn’t do the basic stuff in environment and it showed in this paper. I feel the cut off would be around 95-100, I just hope UPSC doesn’t wave their ‘absurd answers’ wand on this paper. 
I had the worst time of my life yesterday and today but I’m not going to think about it. Nahi hua toh it’s not the end of the world and we’ll come back better next time. 
Not advertising and just based on my 1st and last impression since I don’t really dwell on the paper too much, SFG helped a lot (though I was only a part of level 3)
CSAT was tough and comprehension could easily sink me. Right now I won’t think about the results, take a 4 day break and start mains prep. Prelims was an absolute torture for me, if I give mains it is going to be infinitely worse (a very big IF). I’m just content because I worked hard and going forward I’ll only get better. 

Arsene Wenger once said ‘what matters isn’t the intensity of your motivation but the stamina of your motivation’
Fits perfectly for UPSC 

Still, I’m somewhat affected by the fact that I’m 25 already without a job experience and no idea about alternatives. Would like some help/advice to overcome this thought from you guys.

Bhai since the past week YouTube has been recommending shorts like these. ‘Agar aapko kuch idea nahi hai tab bhi aap trick laga ke solve kar sakte hai’ ‘humein pata hi hai Omkareshwar sun se related nahi hai, lo solve ho gaya’ 

I wish the paper was a year long so we had time to think of these ‘tricks’. 

Tricks rarely work, only your base knowledge and an aware mind can help you.

yes. matching with 2-3 reliable keys and taking the average would be a better idea

In parole question the phrase "make out a sufficient case" doesn't have any role ?

If the ‘all casual workers’ is in the broadest sense, then the statement should be incorrect. If it refers to workers involved in the job profile the same as the company’s workers, then yes, even if he works for 1 day he’s entitled for EPF. 

Eg. if there is a casual worker who’s come to repair a machine for a day or 2, then no. If he comes as a replacement for an ordinary worker who’s absent for 1 day, then it applies, regardless of days employed.

Huge variations in answer keys again. Some of the very prominent institutes are getting the basics wrong. 
If anyone finds a reliable source, please DM.

Papers like these make me feel that it is good to prepare for UPSC, but with a decent backup or a side job. 

The work I put in for UPSC, the detachment and all, I can give half of it and crack a number of decent exams. But no issues. It's a hustle I chose. Let us see what the result has for all of us!

pretty tough. feel scared to even type my score after 2020's score debacle so it's probably best to just see how this one plays out.
