As we know, IAS examinations are prestigious but difficult, and CSAT may cause issues and may even throw planning off. Why can it happen? CSAT is a Civil Services Aptitude Test that students have to crack with a minimum of 33% marks. It means getting 66 out of 200. Students must know that both General Studies Paper-II and CSAT are the same.
Students get 80 questions in total, and they get 2 hours to attempt these questions. Every question has a 2.5 mark assigned to it.
Why Do Students Need to Be Wary of CSAT?
It might appear for students to take the CSAT exam lightly. The first reason is that they may believe that since they need to obtain only 33% marks, they need to focus less on it and more on General Studies Paper-I. Secondly, the marks will not get counted in their merit. Therefore, this paper doesn’t need too much focus. However, this approach brings about their downfall.
We wandered the site with busloads of other tourists, yet strangely the place did not seem crowded. I’m not sure if it was the sheer size of the place, or whether the masses congregated in one area and didn’t venture far from the main church, but I didn’t feel overwhelmed by tourists in the monastery.
Headed over Lions Bridge and made our way to the Sofia Synagogue, then sheltered in the Central Market Hall until the recurrent (but short-lived) mid-afternoon rain passed.
Feeling refreshed after an espresso, we walked a short distance to the small but welcoming Banya Bashi Mosque, then descended into the ancient Serdica complex.
We were exhausted after a long day of travel, so we headed back to the hotel and crashed. I had low expectations about Sofia as a city, but after the walking tour I absolutely loved the place. This was an easy city to navigate, and it was a beautiful city despite its ugly, staunch and stolid communist-built surrounds. Sofia has a very average facade as you enter the city, but once you lose yourself in the old town area, everything changes.
If You Have It, You Can Make Anything Look Good
Clothes can transform your mood and confidence. Fashion moves so quickly that, unless you have a strong point of view, you can lose integrity. I like to be real. I don’t like things to be staged or fussy. I think I’d go mad if I didn’t have a place to escape to. You have to stay true to your heritage, that’s what your brand is about.
