so ppl.. The exam is over and i am of the opinion that many are confident of clearing in this attempt.. There are few more surprises.. The no of posts have been upped from 580 to somewhere close to 880. I do not have a proof for this info but it does seem reliable. Further the paper, though it seemed tough, it was full of tricky bits. Lastly, a person working with the upsc has mentioned that there is no such thing as gs cutoff. So all those who can expect score of around 250 can rest assured that they will be thro' to the mains.. So start preparing ppl..
