General gyaan:
Read each question multiple times, har question be fight till death karna hai, tabhi first choice service milegi, warna fir line me lagna padega aur fir motivation high rakhna bhi tough task ho jaata hai

@Kira0705I heard a term "organic writing". What is that? Why do such terms appear a week before the exams? Kaun hamari phirki le rha hai!

organic writing

haha bhai I am hearing this term for first time , upsc mein kafi gyani log h funda dene wale specially at the last moment

jab 3 ghante mein har question mein 7 se kam minute milte h tab organic , inorganic synthetic kuch yaad nai rehta jo dimag mein aa jaye and jaisa structure baith jaye .

@Vika@Kira0705I think this term is best suited for the Essay paper tomorrow. Essay ko zyada didactic ya bookish rakhne ke bajaay natural rakh sakte hain. GS papers mein synthetic hi likhne honge answers.

@Kira0705Bhai I got decent marks in the Essay last year; wrote the philosophical essay on History like a class 10 student. Keep it simple, seems to work.
