I think this was a very poorly-designed paper, especially with respect to the last three questions. And once again, IR theory (realism, liberalism, Marxism, nation states, power, concepts) was largely ignored and this paper was more of a current affairs paper than one that can be called an IR exam per se. You needed around 6 hours if you had to satisfactorily answer all these questions instead of simply just dropping facts and paraphrasing your arguments.

The problem with this question is that you've already been dictated exactly what to do. By "eastern" Europe, I think the framer meant the post-Yugoslavia ethnic/nationalist violence in the Balkans because I couldn't think of any examples of nationalist atrocities in Eastern Europe. By Africa, he/she meant the Rwanda genocide primarily and perhaps some other conflicts, too.. By "South Asia", the question meant the Babri Mosque incident, the Gujarat massacre and perhaps even Kashmir. In all these cases, the UN was notably absent, and in Rwanda it was a spectator to the massacres...

But the problem with the question is that the answer has already been provided to us, we just have to elaborate on it. The length of the question didn't allow for any real input from the candidate either.

Now this was a good question because both the China and USA want supremacy in the Indian Ocean. But it had too many parts, too: the importance of the Indian Ocean, the roles of China and the USA, their political, strategic and economic interests (globally or just in this region?).... By the time you're done discussing these aspects only, you would've already exhausted 40 minutes.

This was the worst of the lot. The candidates had to follow a dictation and there was hardly any time for their own analysis, especially since the question had already set the tone for the "correct" answer. It has 7 different aspects in it that are required to be discussed.

Well, some of the Mcqs were a bit confusing, but the subjective part was good, the only problem was that every question covered lots of things, i wrote on 15 pages for the last question. this type of general questions are meant to check the personal ability of the candidates rather than their bookish subject knowledge, are good but a bit time consuming.

Actually now two or more Questions are being merged in every Question and the Question finally becomes very long, time taking and multidimensional. The paper is set in such a way that students must miss any part of the Question, same trend is being observed this year..

I fully agree with sanguine..such papers and questions though appear easy but their marking is tough perhaps..this time the questions were coupled with multiple topics. at a glance it appeared quite confusing...

from africa they want discussion upon Sudan, Somalia, Kongo etc
in South Asia they were demanding a brief note upon sinhali activities in Srilanka and Myanmar and in Eastern Europe happenings in Balgaria, Czeck Republic, Chechnya, Serbia, Bosenia, Lithunia and Lativia etc.
