Sir right now i am pursing Bsc degree now i understood how 2 face challenges .sir so my big Question is whether i can take upsc exams in spite of wasting 3 valuable years .......?? Sir please reply so that this poor can do something better so plz help me sir my humble request sir
Anyway, you did a great job. I am from Delhi and in my opinion it's an informative video. If you are married then when is your wedding anniversary. There are so many guys who will be married after taking upsc exam. I don't have any questions and I hope you will reply to my comment.I forgot to tell you about me, I am graduated in ME.

Sir........can you please make videos for IIT-JAM(for Msc entrance exam) sir please its my humble request........... sir please,please ,please,please,please
so what we use...i passed out my school in 2016 OR i gruduate my school in 2016
"I've graduated" or "I graduated in 2016" or I graduated from xyz university in 2016" Hope, it's clear!
The same goes for "high school" n "school".
"Anyways" is informal, but correct. "I have a doubt" can't be wrong. It's not impossible to have one if you take science into account. It's not unscientific.
  1. English Language 1 Errors by Indians Part 1 Date

  2. Anyway vs Anyways Anyways, what's up? * Anyway, what's up?

  3. 93 Usage of extra "only" I am from Delhi only, WRONG I am from Delhi. or I am originally from Delhi.

  4. According to me It's always "according to someone else". Rather say, Ila my opimionor Asper my point of view- + Rather say, "In my opinion..." or "As per my point of view..."

  5. Marriage vs Wedding Marriage is a state of relationship. Wedding is an event where two people get married. You got to a wedding not marriage. You celebrate a wedding anniversary.

  6. Giving vs Taking an exam You don't give an exam, you take an exam. When did you give your UPSC Prelims?-WRONG Wh en dia you take your UPSC Prelims?-RIGHT I took my exams last month,-RIGHT

  7. Doubt vs Question I have a doubt-WRONG I have a question. I have a question.

  8. Reply back vs Reply You do not reply back, you reply. Because reply itself means a response to something.

  9. Passing out vs Graduating You graduate from an institution when you complete your studies. You don't pass out. :)
