Vajiram or Sriram? Both Updated Their Fees for 2014.

Hello Every one,
I've decided to appear in UPSC 2014.

I want to join a coaching institute but I am in a dilemma on which one to choose? either Vajiram or Sriram?

Both institutes updated their fees which is around 1 Lakh. Vajiram Updated his website with current fees and I called Sriram and they told me the classes will start from 3rd June and Fees will be around 1.10 Lakh. Classes will end on next year in April for both.

Now, if we invest huge money then ROI should be better.

Kindly advise me which coaching I should go for.
Regards

    get their notes.classes are mere dictations(repeats of handouts at sri) and time waste!!unless you have doubts which you will rarely have in GS if you have done NCERTs sincerely .Even if you have some get it clarified here.

    i've been to both sri and vaji classes.
  • @Eric ....which classes did u find better vajiram or sri??

    sriram is more student friendly.he will give time to ask your doubts.geography is good,history ok,sc-tech -bad.current notes of sri are good.vaji notes are better for the traditional part.

    for classes- sri,
    for notes- vaji

  • sri himself takes polity,eco,IR.they are good.
  • I was in MN today and inquired at a few places. Just like that! Most of the institutes have fees in the same bracket as V&R / Srirams. I could have posted more details, however, one can call them up for specific information. They are too happy to help!

  • Oh finally Rau's made a curtain call from Civil Services :>
    2017--> 8th attempt
  • Oh finally Rau's made a curtain call from Civil Services :>
    Rau's website says June batch - 95000.
  • I went to Sriram's last year, the October 2011 to April 2012 batch...

    Subjects that Sriram sir himself takes are really good-polity(incl IR) n economy. He gives time for questions and will clear your doubts patiently

    others-Geography sir was good, khadoos professor types but covered everything nicely

    History was ok. You dont need coaching for history anyways. Just some things which he says are not imp at all. (like mahajanapadas). he is very funny in class, it helps somewhat in spicing up as i still remember some facts n events by of the anecdotes he made. helps in remembering. but then you can do that yourself as well.

    S n T: okay sorts....you have read yourself n ask him if you dont understand anything. Even if he does not know, he will get back to you later.
    Biology-useless


    CSAT-dont make the mistake of going there. They spent a month making us do numeracy...n see for yourself how many questions were asked last prelims from there.

  • do u think its a good decision to go vaji for pubad and Sriram for GS..?? I am also confused b/w vaji and Sri for GS.....
    The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.
  • @sahilth Vajiram - vs - Sriram has been discussed extensively. Please search and refer the relevant threads!
  • @sahil123 ... did they give u any reason? what were they? why not rao?

    Don't get fooled by the tall claims..........a student may attend a mock interview at vaji and then vaji propounds him as their own student when he gets selected.(No offence against vaji).
    Just a heads up.
  • have faith in yourself and do self study...
    no one knows about this new pattern so don't waste your money.
    spend it in getting a comfortable single room with kitchen and bathroom, get a cook and work hard.

    if you want you can join some newspaper classes they will help you prepare notes.
    buy lots of good books and material with that money.
    join coaching for optional only

  • i didnt take any coaching for gs.
    sociology i did at mahapatra's and he is good, give lots of notes on diff. thinkers view

    i might join newspaper class by aspire as it is getting hectic to cope with new pattern and i also spent lot of time on pub ad as i was preparing it by myself.

    they cover up newspaper very nicely so u can spend less time on current affairs and prepare other things by yourself.
