    Does any know what is the cut-off marks for BPSC PT exam. It was mentioned in Hindustan Paper that for gen. cat. marks is 87 but i didn’t got selected although calculated as 89 from the given answer keys.
    (I am sorry for this irrelevant question.)

  6. Jombie

    Same here.
    Had 95 from official cut off but still out.Might be some questions/answers are ommited after publication of keys.
    Still,it doesn’t make any sense!
    Just wait n watch for future court cases..

  7. Jombie

    Read official keys instead of official cut off

  8. saba

    I’ve qualified BPSC PT.
    OC-GEN calculated 77 score and 2 answers claimed to be correct.
    Hindustan’s 87 cut off might be wrong. As it had earlier misrepoted about declaration of pt result.
    Wait till BPSC uploads marks and cut-off.

    1. Classified

    INTRODUCTION
    My name is Bhavya Mehta. I am from Una, a town located in Gir-Somnath district. I have a work-ex of 3.5 years at L&T, Surat.
    I wanted to opt for UPSC. So I have resigned from my job after getting a job in SSC 2014.I shall be relieved by 15th Dec 2014 while my joining for SSC job shall take place by June 2015.
    WHAT DO I WANT TO DO?
    Utilise this 6 months to prepare for my optional which is Economics
    WHY ECONOMICS?
    I have been interested in Economics since my graduation days. I briefly studied the subject with the help of some of the books like
    • The Undercover Economist by Tim Hartford,
    • Free lunch by David Smith,
    • Freakonomics by Steven (something)
    • Day to Day Economics by Satish Deodhar,
    • Many works by Amartya Sen.
    • This is in addition to the regular commentaries found in dailies.
    It is with this base, your articles & lectures and some curiosity that I intend to pursue Economics
    I am already reading Macroeconomics by HL Ahuja and I am able to get 70-80 percent of it
    ISSUE
    Though you have covered Economics considering Prelims + Mains + Interview stage ( and there are no two opinions on how well it has been done), there lack of guidance when it comes to choosing Eco as optional

    WHAT HAVE I DONE
    1. I have downloaded the syllabus
    2. Downloaded the strategies by 5 toppers
    • Gaurav Agrawal
    • Niraj Singh
    • Riju Bafna
    • Harshika Singh
    • Divya Mittal
    3. Trying to get in touch with Gujarat University Professors of Social Science & Veer Narmad South Gujarat University ( Found no success)
    4. Posted on PAGALGUY,

    CURRENT PLAN:
    Join Axiom in case nothing better comes up

    WHAT DO I WANT FROM YOU:
    With all the above can you guide me.
