Career Counseling

One of the topics was 'Your Perception of Me is a Reflection of You, My reflection of you is an awareness of me'. Another was Philosophy of wantlessness is Utopian while materialism is a chimaera. 

These topics were not easy to score as seconded by many previous UPSC aspirants and now IAS officers as well. 

The GS 1, 2, 3 and 4 papers were a little offbeat and had mainly current focussed questions. So the candidates would face tough competition there. There were questions like-  Explain the difference between computing methodology of India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) before the year 2015 and after the year 2015 to The Nobel Prize in Physics of 2014 was jointly awarded to Akasaki, Amano and Nakamura for the invention of Blue LEDs in the 1990s.
