LAST YR GOT 154+158=312.
THIS YR EXPECTING 325.BUT ENDED UP WITH 138+129= 267
DONT KNOW WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING.

marks 169+151=320;

Have patience and strive to improve writing skills a bit.

163 and 150, 313
very much disappointing despite great effort and reasonably good paper.
won’t advise anyone to take pali.

hi somvansi,firstly not cleared mains.Completely agree with u regarding suggesting others to take Pali,but being in midst of ocean of uncertainity,it appears 2 me 2 sail through with pali.The only silver line is likely surety of remaining around 300.

got only the last seat , thanx to pkm 210 marks in interview. total 1140.
but i think it will be difficult to improve much in pali.
overall marking is also not encouraging in it as compare to other optionals, which are giving more than 380 and 400

any person who get 330 + in Pali lit –

In this time PALI done not well – As I conformed. Any person who get 330 + in pali- Please give some guide line about Pali. Please .

Last yr philosophy and Pali’s performance was neck to neck…but this year, definitely Pali’s average score and overall performance has drastically gone down compared to last time. Philosophy continues to do well, also sociology..& anthropology

padma ram ji rank around 708 has got 337 in pali lit.and 361 in history…essay proved disaster for him as got only 30 marks in essay…my friend took pali aftr prelims and got decent score of 171+133 in pali…

Name : Gaurav Singh Rajawat

190 + 183 = 373
(last year : 180 + 178 = 358)
jai ho bhagva buddho ki!!!!!
rank 51

pali marks

184+141=325
rank 383

do u have to write some answers in Pali ??
how much ratta(mugging) u hav to do in it ?

  2. Hi,

    I have my query about my optional Pali. I have given my first attempt this year by Pub.Ad and Pali. I got messed up in Pali n have very bleak possiblity for interview call now. Now I have my confusion regarding keeping this subject or changing it. I think i can give in to cram up this subject as majorly required for this in a proper manner . Also Last year I had only Last 2 months for my 2nd subject n for revising other subjects. But if pattern changes in Same fashion then this could be fatal so please suggest me what r odds for the same.

    Thanking you
