    1. The question on the power of judiciary to declare a law invalid is judicial supremacy. Then in English- look me up is correct and not look me in. The next question -i'm extrmly sorry, i'm pressed for time is the correct answer and not lost in time.

    3. the power of judiciary to declare a law invalid is judicial review

      Delete
    4. Manu I don't think so. What I felt is Judiciary got an upper hand to make a law invalid if it is affecting the normal life of a citizen. I think that's what they called Judicial Supremacy.

      Correct me if I am wrong.

      Thank you.

      Delete
    5. the answer is judicail review
      The constitution vests in judiciary, the power to adjudicate upon the constitutional validity of all the laws. If a laws made by parliament or state legislature violates any provision of the constitution, the Supreme Court has power to declare such a law invalid or ultra virus. So the process of judicial scrutiny of legislative acts is called Judicial Review.

    But the Big Question, Is there any chance to be in List ? I am Latin Catholic....

  5. Guyz, how was the Exam? I felt little easy. But due to inexperience in PSC exams (as this is my second exam) I have done few mistakes. I will get 38.11 Marks. But if our friend "JK" is right, then my score will be 40.67.

    But the big question.. Is there any chance to be in the List ? I am Latin Catholic.

    16. Anice,

      You're seriously underestimating the potential of candidates who prepared for this exam. Your cut off of 40 ...I can't stop laughing. You are thinking only in one direction, based on how you handled the questions. I'm a rank-holder in Thrissur LDC. My mark was 72. The paper was similar to (actually, a little tougher than) this exam. There were around 300 people above me. This was the case of just one district. So, think about people from 14 districts coming together to write one exam. I think you will get the picture now.

    17. Shine whats ur Ldc rank number? Have u heard about masters college thrissur, their top score is 68 in this exam, in brilliance college top score is 57.

      Delete
    18. Anice,

      My LDC rank is 294. I never went for any coaching, but heard about these institutes. Proud to realize (if true)that I'm better than them. Based on the innumerable answer keys flooded on the Internet (including PSC key)and the questionable validity of some of the answers, I expect a mark between 70 and 77.

      Delete
    19. Anice, I wrote last years LDC exam without any preparation. I was in the supplementary list. This was my second exam. I prepared only one month without any guide or help of coaching centre. i wrote 83 answer. 67 is correct. 16 wrong means 4 less ie, total score 64.I think iam far better than this coaching centre going aspirants. Most of them has been going in these institutes for the last one or two years.

  25. Q No : 21 of Alpha Code B

    In the answer key the answer is given option no D which is Tropical monsoon climate. The tropical monsoon climate is due to the latitudinal extent of each and every place of earth.
    So the correct answer should be Option No A latitudinal extent.

    Explanation :
    The countries lying between the tropic of cancer(23.5 degrees N) and tropic of capricon(23.5 degrees S) are in the tropical zone.
    The countries lying between tropic of cancer and Article circle (66.5 degrees N) in the Northern Hemisphere and those lying between tropic of capricon and Antarctic circle(66.5 degrees S) in the Southern Hemisphere are in theTemperate Zone.
    The countries beyond Arctic circle towards North pole in the Northern Hemisphere and beyond Antarctic circle towards South Pole in the Southern Hemisphere are in the Frigid Zone.


    Q No : 30 of Alpha Code B

    Largest producer of rice in India is West Bengal with 15.8% of total production. Second largest is Andhra Pradesh with 12.71 %. So the answer should be Andhra Pradesh.
    But the answer given is Tamil Nadu which is 6th position with 7.08 % of total production.

    Q No : 68 of Alpha Code B

    Punctuation Question answer should be C.

    Q No : 71 of Alpha Code B

    ANSI escape sequences are characters embedded in the text used to control formatting, color, and other output options on video text terminals. Almost all terminal emulators designed to show text output from a remote computer, and (except for Microsoft Windows) to show text output from local software, interpret at least some of the ANSI escape sequences.
    The American Standard Code for Information Interchange is a character-encoding scheme originally based on the English alphabet. ASCII codes represent text in computers, communications equipment, and other devices that use text. Most modern character-encoding schemes are based on ASCII, though they support many additional characters
    So the answer is ASCII


    Q No : 78 of Alpha Code B

    Domain name is a part of URL. So the answer should be URL which is Option No C




    Q No : 95 of Alpha Code B

    Odd man Out . Simple explanation is out of the given answers 14 is the only even number. Other explanation is multiple of 7 . Then the answer is 55. So there are two answers. The question should be omitted.


    Q No : 100 of Alpha Code B

    The answer should be 70 km .

    3. Hai Sugunan
      The major reason for calling India a tropical country Should be tropical monsoons. The tropic of cancer passes approximately through the middle of India. Hence the lower part of the country is in tropical zone and the upper part is in the temperate zone. Still it is considered that India is a tropical country the major reasons are
      The presence of Himalayas
      The monsoon winds.
      Since himalayas is not given in the answer set the correct option is tropical monsoons.

  27. Sect. Assistant Cut Off, my prediction : between 75 and 85 based on the following facts,

    1. This was a state-wide exam and the questions were easy. ie, an LDC or LGS level exam conducted state-wide. Remember, cut off for Kollam LGS was 92 !!

    2. One in 100 may score above 75. 1% of 3 lakh (ie, 3000) is enough to fill the rank list.

    3. A significant number of students who wrote the exam were seriously preparing for the UPSC civil service exams. For them, this will be a cakewalk. They will fill up the rank list.

    Anyway, the cut off WILL NOT be below 70. I know it is not good to hear, but sometimes, truth can be hard to comprehend.

    1. I agree with you. The standard of the exam was very low. PSC guides by-heart padicha aarkkum 70 above kittum. we can compare this exam with LGS exam only. LDC tests conducted in 2011 was very tough when compared to this exam.

  29. Guys,

    It seems I am the least scored person in this discussion forum. I got only 39.66%. I have prepared well for the initial 2 months. Then suddenly I lost the interest and become lazy. Don't know there will be another chance for me to PSC exam as I am already 34. If there is any, I will prepare very well. I am gonna take the print out of this page, whenever I lost interest and become lazy I will read this...

    Wishing you all the best Guyz, I hope every one will be in the Rank List and got a chance to be a part of the development of our Nation.

  39. In answerkeys provided by PSC, some are wrong

    URL is used to find specific web page, domain name cannot be used to find specific page. domain name is a subset of URL

    ASCII is the answer for keyboard question.

    Also , Chocolate cake contains high amount of calorie
    since large amount of is used with uncountable noun and calorie is countable.

    2. Padmanabha dasan: i think usage of a large is the correct one.since calorie is countable, we can use a large amount of caloie. If there was no A in the question like the chocolate cake contains______amount of calorie, the the ans wld be high...However the question was - the chocolate cake contains a_______amount of calorie. So i think the answe is large only.

  40. Padmanabha dasan: URL and web address is same. So ans shld be B and C ( both are correct) any way i dont think it is domain name
