Just To burst soemthings here regd. Coaching

1. do economic surveys N budget in detail N do full course

2. do india year book

3. practice CA of 1-2 years

4. give test series (later claim 100 qs were from there)

5. Create topic wise practice tests in detail


UPSC- hold my beer (with random questions from as back as 2014 and vague committees of 1949 ayyangar etc..ask about parole custody etc which only lawyers or police might know)..

IMHO- this isnt right way to select people of calibre to govern this country


and the fear that has come up due to this random 2021 paper will only feed more coaching courses and bulky matierial books

Can virus be created artificially/synthetically??

I marked yes.(All of the above)

Virus can't be, it's a pyq. 

someone above shared an IE article from 2020 regarding culturing of viruses in a lab, idk. I ticked all too.

Culture is growing..the catch word is culture by synthetic or artificial means...so yes virus can be cultured in artificial medium involving cell lines..i think everyone is taking culture as making it


But dunno what the official key might have

@GaneshGaitonde Totally agree with you bro. UPSC has become an INSENSITIVE and CRUEL organization which is making this exam a random lottery based exam. Having given Mains 2020 and spending around 4-5 years on this exam, I deeply feel that your hard work might not be fully respected by this commission. While looking at those 3-4 sports question, I felt like someone is throwing a cruel joke on aspirants who prepare for 3-4 years, undergo tortures of different kinds and make so many sacrifices for this exam.  In an exam where 1-2 marks decide your 1 year, don't these guys have sensible and conceptual questions to ask. Will knowing about Federer and Tiger Woods' awards make you a good administrator?? 

2017,2018,2019 & 2020 papers were also tough but I never questioned the logic behind asking those questions because those were still sensible questions. But this paper is just like a random lottery in so many ways. To all the aspirants, I'd like to say that stop worshipping UPSC and this exam. Just treat it like a normal PCS exam. Look at the way these guys treat the people who reach up to the interview stage and don't make it to the final list. Can't they absorb them in some other posts where at least those guys can have some financial security. Who treats such talented people like crap? Just because someone didn't make it to the final list, will you ask him to write this kind of Lottery based random Prelims again? There are many great jobs in this world where you'll find great satisfaction, happiness and will be rewarded duly for your hard work. Life is much Bigger than this random lottery based exam. So never attach your self-worth and confidence to this kind of exams. 

I always believed india lacks proper talent management...this is one example for same..the country wont grow if it doesnt take care of its takents

Hi my dear forumite,
Don't lose any hope...
With 6th prelims experience of this year and past experience of getting 149.33 official score in 2016... I can say confidently that anything above 85 is pretty safe to start for mains preparation.

Don't waste anytime for keys of other institutes.

All the best


General 90+

obc 85+

sc-75+

st 70+


Must be the range for safe scores so prepare wholeheartedly if u r anywhere near these


Csat debacle is being seen this year too+ randomicity of paper..either one scores too high or low with guesses becoming right or wrong...nothing in between

This time people are saying people was difficult but those scoring really good are silent like every year. Usually when we score less we shout more. 

I hope these are not ORN group..because every year after prelims no one say their score is less than 120 and vanish after results

Officer ias academy ..claims cut off to be 98 and paper being easy 😱
7.4k views

Question paper apart most disappointing is answer keys when insitutes themselves are not able to reach consensus on answer in all comfort how can we in all types of pressures (family,career,expectations) can do that .Surely this is the indicator of toughness of paper 

Best science faculties in Delhi still nobody able to provide answers this makes us much more anxious 

Remember in 2019 itself newspapers claimed paper was easy and coachings gave 105 can be the cut off similarly last year 100+ was prediction 

It makes us doubt our whole preparation

If such was the scenario how cut off reached 92.5 historically low and even lowest than seen in any other year (means median and mode of marks was around this )

Hope to get some insights on how accurate is vision IAS key 

I think a lot of people have said this and it's a very obvious thing to say. 

But, it's ridiculous how coaching institutes and subject matter experts can't come to consensus on answers after a week with all the resources in the world at their disposal. And yet everybody expects candidates to get them correct in a pressure cooker(😛) situation in less than 90 seconds 

Even if the exam was open book, people would mark different answers for these questions.. speaks a lot about the ambiguity at play here.. 



That speaks a lot about so called experts too...

@Phantom It always happens. UPSC playing the wrong ball. They should stick. to syllabus and set guidelines . They should introduce randomness within the zone of syllabus but asking anything like roger fedrar or virat kohli etc. is making aspirants pessimistic in hard work which they always put in by self study.

In the last years of the 17th century, the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, in a desperate bid to hold on to the unruly Southern Peninsula, proclaimed Zulfikar Ali as the First Nawab of the Carnatic.Zulfikar Ali, who traced his roots back to the Second Caliph Umar ibn al-Khattab, settled down in a hot and humid place called Arcot, now in Tamil Nadu.

Right now i am feeling utterly clueless. I am unmoored. I was happy eating samosa with chutney and suddenly my father started quizzing me on rivers. Dhauli meets ganga where, Which tributary joins at rudraprayag etc etc. As soon as he asks me something it seems something in me goes missing. He shouted at me a lot, saying stuff like "you don't study that's why you don't succeed"  "You are useless in all aspects, right now you should stand with your head bowed and you are crying like this. You have an attitude problem." 

I am thinking about two options. Either I should run away or I should die. I know I sound melodramatic as hell but I just can't take it anymore. I don't have any way out. I am not smart enough or I don't work hard enough I don't even know anymore. I have saved some 30-35k and I am genuinely thinking of running somewhere, eating a lot have fun and then go die somewhere quiet in a way that won't bother anyone. I don't think I have anything to give to this world anyway. I am sorry for dumping all of this here, I know this is not the place for it. Everyone here has their own problems and are fighting them. I know nobody wants to hear me whine. Goodbye. This is my second and last comment on forum. I don't what i will do for now but I am done with all

@Aurang_mirasudar  No false hope, bro. People were nitpicking over Ozone in 2019 Prelims too. We all know answer to that Q. Nitpicking doesn't work in UPSC. Anyway, only time will tell the answer. IMHO, it should be D. :)



Ok

The only exam when one is nervous before,during,after exam and even after result


before- exam pressure and syllabus+ coaching induced fear

during - exam hall pressure as entire year at stake

after- entire year at stake,wrong answers in keys, directionless,result tension

after exam- tension about keys or what went wrong in marking

@Aurang_mirasudar 

in that epfo source that you shared, it’s apparent that the notification is applicable to establishments with 20 or more workers only. So it’s clear that it’s not applicable to ALL casual workers. Hence, can we conclude that statement 1 is wrong ? Kindly clarify sir 

I am no one to decide..the meaning is applies to all casual workers working in firms..since it talks about epfo naturally all institutions wil 20 or more workers are Only being talked..i think so

 General issues on Environmental Ecology, Bio-diversity and Climate Change - that do not require subject specialisation - mentioned in cse prelims notification

The paper is targeted towards creating level playing field between science and non science students. Isliye zyada technical dimag lagane se answer galat hi hoga.

Pressure cooker ho,magnetite ho,virus wala ho ya koi aur question ho. Jo commonly acceptable fact ho usi ko upsc answer manegi.

2021 paper was luck based entirely..whose luck shone in that day would be qualifying..it wSnt for someone who worked hard n sincere..its apparently visible..so cruel for people who sweat day n night

the question is not actually talking about epfo in general. The question clearly mentions, “ with respect to casual workers employed in India “. So the question is about casual workers in general and not epfo. 


“Entitled/eligible”

Yes UPSC should rename itself as APSC(arbitrary public service commission). Maybe they dnt want aspirants to continuously prepare full time for this exam. Isliye aise discourage kr rahe hai.

The New Urban Agenda talks about issues ofinformal settlementsand their human rights. It nowhere discussesunauthorized settlements. There is adifferencebetweeninformal settlements and unauthorized settlements. Broadly, it mentions that Informal settlements have human rights and the state must provide them with public service.

Seems statement 3 is correct after reading the above article. But what makes statement 1 wrong?

New Urban Agenda mentions that UN-Habitat does monitor and it is a human right too.

UN habitat/NUA isnt legally binding

@Aurang_mirasudar Question is no where is saying about legally binding nature. It's simply mentioning about its agreed nature. Statement 3 may be correct but its absolute nature i.e 'any public service' makes it more vulnerable. 




There is no monitoring..given in same article..now Please leave this question everyone
