Some other questions i can’t recall

Then they all looked over my head . I thought which new technique are they trying to play. Then figured out it was time they were keeping track of. So

Member 4

  1. said I will ask you one question
  2. 5 eco reforms done by govt last year.


  1. said thank you and we wish really good for you.
  2. Then lady asked : why are girls wearing this collar blouse . Has any mock person suggested you? I told my case .
  3. Some member asked me about weather forecasting and el nino. I did a factual blunder there.
  4. Utility of mocks : my mocks used to be very subjective and different from each other. I had same kind of feeling there. I don’t know the difference between marking scheme of mocks and upsc so fingers crossed.
  5. All the best everyone. Just one advice be yourself. If you realise you went on a wrong path ( like i did with euthanasia) just ask the person sir/ madam i guess i lost my track , if you permit can i rephrase. It will be beneficial in two ways:
  • your calm and confidence will be maintained.
  • they can see your real self ( what they are actually looking for)

Take it like any other day. Dont do this nonsense of D day. You will get mentally burdened by your own baggage of this auspicious occasion.
