  3. We have discussed 60% of the paper 1 question in this blog.Honestly,i am ignorant about some of the question in paper II.Like Gilgit Baltistan Empowerment,P-8A Poseidon,Graphene,
    Optical Frequency Comb etc.Standard of the question are really good.If we compare with 2003 paper,this one is much better ..

  4. Well, buddy.. GS was disaster for everyone.. History section was a big mystery in Paper I and both IR and Science and Tech hammered any hopes of improving in Paper II.
    Its the same story for everyone out there.
