  1. Hi. I have come across interviews where two candidates have the same grand total but ranking is different for eg: 142 and 184 etc. Please clarify on this part.

  2. Sir I am preparing for UPSC 2017 attempt, I have not studied much before, could you please tell me a roadmap for 321 days

  3. Hi Mrunal, I’m sure these lectures are great but they are in Hindi and I’m sad to say my favourite site has stopped becoming useful for me :( I miss the incredibly lucid (and hilarious!) illustrative explanations you used to write in ENGLISH. I was reading your old notes and just wanted to come here and say that. I miss!!
