  11. shailen

    candidates with following Roll Nos. has been kept withheld subject to the outcome of the Court Case. Sir what did that mean?

  12. Suren

    Out of 2961 candidates, 1079 will make it to the pinnacle. Is the interview so much deciding when we know that total marks alloted to interview is 300!!
    My question is that “when the results are almost decided from the mains exam marks, and the interview is the finishing touch to those candidates who had actually performed well in mains”, isnt it raising false hopes to other candidates for the remaining 1900 candidates!!
    Please provide your comments. Thanks

    1. sadhu baba

      Chacha interview 275 marks ka hai 300 nahi.
      Kaise kaise log launch ho rahe hain aajkal :D

    2. AASTHA

      Dude, trust me you dont want marks of mains given out. In Karnataka public service exam because of the marks of candidates given out, people tried to manipulate the interview scores to get in.

  22. Aspirant

    Accept the fact that its a Ruthless competition. N yes, difference in marks of mains qualified people won’t be that big, but interview marks are decisive, either you are in IAS or out of any service, every stage of this exam is crucial !

  23. Vikhyaat Kohli

    This was my 4th time. Changed my optional from Pub Ad to Sociology. Can’t say where I went wrong. Somewhere initially I was confident on my own graduation subject (Mech Engg) but on the advise of coachingwallas I changed it to Pub Ad followed by Socio. Feeling sad.
