  • @Bangaloreboy123 : Nops, even I will go there by month end and then hunt for accommodation. Preferably PG. single room or 1bhk flat will do, but I don't have any partner as of now. Hostel is last option.
    ·
  • @Hopefull_2014 : Agreed. 2hrs of coaching means what will make the difference is what and how you do for rest of the 22 hrs..
    ·
  • @sanket002 true man, same here. I'm trying to get hold of the dd today. enough of headache between Vaji ann sriram. @Hopefull_2014 yes, nothing else matters, self study is everything but I feel personally for me being in bangalore is very distracting. I'm looking fwd to a good study group balance in Delhi.

  • With the change in the style of questions it is not the cramming up of the data but the analysis, that matters.
    And I'm sure that coaching wallas cannot teach you that. So, let us just pack our bags and get ready to enjoy the ride to the hallowed world of Civil Services.

  • Being in Bangalore is very distracting... :D :D :D Brigade Road, Forum, Mantri, Garuda, et el..... :D :D

    I was so confused betn vaji , sriram and ALS, I even called my District's DM. :D He recommended Vaji , but he is from 2007 batch, and lots of things are changed now in all these years.
    ·
  • yes, i too called several people some say they are equal, all in all personal study matters plus notes of vaji can be taken. Sriram always had the name for GS. My main query was if 10 month coaching was required. bangalore has more than the malls and all. haha.
    ·
  • @Bangaloreboy123 : I would say, 10 month of 'coaching' is not required, but we need to study all year round. So it's better to keep ourselves engage in studies, and coaching may help. I heard that Sriram's takes test almost every week.
    For me , Pune is also very distracting, so I am perfectly OK staying in Delhi till 2014 pre+mains.
    ·
  • Pune :) yes, for sure, been there. I am also okay staying but just want a study atmosphere and good routine till next Prelims. After that gotta see how things shape up. Accommodation mainly. Have any idea if Apex is any good for political science?
    ·
  • No idea about Apex. I am Geography guy ! :)
    ·
  • oh, that's alright buddy!

  • @resurgam @sanket002 Eitherways, no fooling around when we speak of UPSC. Gotta slog! ;)

  • 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.

    sir what about tests in sri ram..i have heard that dey r not really interested in tests while on the other hand we have khan study group which frequently takes the test and evaluates it...which one would be better.????
    ·
  • First of all, please dont call me 'sir'

    As for tests in Sriram, you have heard right. they take tests once a subject is completed. that used to be the case then, now i have no idea with all the new syllabus n all.

    But then, this is 'coaching', not like school or college. where tests are conducted to ensure that students are studying. here, to keep up the tempo is upto you. you can write answers for your practice and give the teachers for correcting them, that way you can have an idea where you stand
    Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
    ·
  • is it so...have you been to sri ram sir for evaluating your answers if this is the case and morever if can personally interact with teachers then it would be superb...actually i did my iit jee coaching and since then have an impression that these coaching sir may not offer answers to your personal querrries ...so i was asking for the same....n thnks for replying bhai ....c no 'sir' this tym...

  • has anyone taken the token for vajiram?...i got the waitlisted token ...its 105

    ·
  • Also guys, is it necessary to take a token even if you are enrolling just for a particular optional like Pub ad etc for full 3 14 weeks course or is it just a walk in?>\

  • sriram vs vaji?

    sriram for depth and coverage.
    Vaji for lucidity and their structured approach.

  • Hi All,
    I am very much confused about joining coaching institute.
    Earlier i had zeroed in Vajiram , but now i am little suspicious about it, as i am hearing mixed reviews .
    I have heard quite good reviews about Sriram's IAS but i am not too sure if there is any batch starting in september or october 2013.

    Please if any1 can help me get rid of this confusion.
    Vajiram/ Sriram/ALS , which is best among the 3 and why ?

    Thanks in advance :)
    Koshish karne walon ki kabhi haar nahi hoti ..

  • Hi All,

    Need Urgent Help ....!!

    Which Institute in Delhi Provides the best Printed Notes for GS Mains 2013 ?

    1. Sriram' IAS
    2. Vajiram
    3. Khan Study Group
    4. Any Other ...

    Bought Vajiram Class Notes ..But Content is repeated and not good ... Please Suggest ...Urgent ....!!!!

  • Guys,

    PCM batch is starting for both this oct & pub ad this nov. I think coaching, if at all required, would be beneficial for mains only. Plus as per suggestions in various threads fundamentals should be clear through std books before plunging into class rooms.

    Please advice if one starts with std reference books, get a grip and finishes mains syllabus (gs + optional) as per recommendations here by march'13 & then go for mains coaching along with focus on prelims ( in aug'14); would that be a good strategy to move ahead ?

    So if anyone here can speculate logically the month in which vaji and sri will start mains batches for 2014, thoughts will be much appreciated (considering they might adjust their calender as prelims has shifted to aug instead of may) ?

    Thanks!
    Do it.
