I need talks on pubad... 

Group discussion on PubAd topics, PYQs twice a week or so, Over a phone call, is anyone interested?
answer writing will do as well.

Where  we  can  practice  ans  writing  for  pubad  on  daily  basis  just  like  for  gs  on  insight platform???? 

@Vinothkumar 
Need some suggestion, I am sure that I will make it in next year's prelim.

Can you suggest me how should I go about DAILY answer writing of PubAd? DAILY or WEEKLY?
I didn't wrote main. I do collect examples from newspaper readings & link it to syllabus.
Is any link/website for Indian Administration dynamic apart from NITI AYOG's website? can you suggest me some?

I got 242 marks in pub adm in mains 2017; 293 marks in pub adm in mains 2018; And now, i 2019 mains, I have got just 202 marks.
I know that the general trend is towards lower marks. But 202 from 293? Can anybody explain what could have gone wrong? Coz Even the low marks trend shd have landed me in the 250-260 category..

I was well prepared..wrote well.. expected to score 300+..yet still here i am..

Please guide..

in 2019 CSM everyone got less marks in optional, your score is good dont you worry.

@Vinothkumar  Thanks for the positivity..
But it seems like nothing works for me.. I have already appeared 5 times and have worked very hard since day one ..
yet the final result never changes for me.. 
Now every day feels like torture..although, it always did..but the repeated failures have just intensified the pain many folds.. "DImaag" keeps wandering..its difficult to maintain focus and that same kind of vigour..

Anyways, Thanks for your time and positive words..may be it will help in the longer run..


Hello everyone,

Is  Aribam  for  both  paper1 and paper  2, ARC reports  and  Prasad  and  Prasad  enough  for  preparation? 

no dear dont go with aribam since upsc questions are now day evolving and demanding u to apply knowledge , u need that kind of approach, see my advice on sources which I posted .follow that if u have any queries ask me will guide u.

karthick its very simple understand the demand very well automatically u will answer in the required dimension , there is no general structuring for answering , u have to flexible by demand of the questions.
also follow the sources which I already told.

Thanks, Deekshith.
