    i feel the constitution and polity aspects of the question papers are relatively easy..

    can u post some questions on the togher side …

    and thanks for ur efforts…

  • Admin

    I am not touching Law of torts, The negotiable instruments act, jurisprudence, contract act, criminal law, Indian penal code & International law. This is because we have divided the quizzes as per the subjects but still all of them are centered towards General Studies paper. I don't know how mahy of our readers would like a Legal Tough paper on every saturday, but i feel that my quizzes clear the basics of our constitution.


    it was not intended as an offence..
    but i clearly understand ur motive…

    i just suggest that questions from polity could just be bit harder so that it could help us in general studies of upsc papers..
    like the formats of choose the correct / wrong statements.. assertion and reasoning type questions .. that's it..

    and I really appreciate the efforts that u r putting forward to help us..

    Sir and a kind request.. what happened to Ur mock test series.. u have not updated anything after the 4th one.. EAGERLY WAITING sir…

    Well Divya…I think the strategy that he is adopting is simple: set the quizzes so that an average aspirant may benefit, n i think it works out pretty well…

    The point is that u might be good at polity and bad at some other section…n others may have their own favorites….its better to average things out :)

    i think the questions r very practical…guess others wud agree….


    thanks for putting up ur views..

    it was jus a suggestion.. dont contradict u.. just thought upsc questions would be slightly tricky..
    i dint intend to offend anyone..
