  • Same query here. Did not join any PubAd test series before mains and paid dearly in PubAd paper 1.

    Got 118 in P1 while 151 in Paper 2. So there is huge scope of improvement in Paper 1. I am little weak with "thinkers" part. Seniors, please guide about Test Series and please tell what I can do to improve in paper 1.

    Some people do like him...specially who have taken exam multiple time...if you are young one and only interested in test series...go to pavan....when I joined his class it was jam packed for sure...but my experience was poor...in terms of his question's weirdness and his attitude towards students .....pavan i found efficient and he takes no non-sense approach....though he always criticizes govt all the time which we can ignore..

    sir
    last year i joined pawan sir
    will i join agian pawan sir or lukman
    i'm very confused
    this year i scored just 235 in pub ad

  • Didn't join pawan kumar but what i know - gives most of the questions from previous year papers.
    Lukman - prepares some very good questions but most of copies aren't checked by Ansari sir. Buy you will explore new concepts in papers and discussions.
    Joined lukman in 2015, attempted only 4 5 tests. They didn't appreciate my writing style and use to give 78 80 marks. UPSC score - 121 + 99.

    In 2016, didn't join any test series GS or optional. Attempted 2 3 tests at Lukman with help of a frn. Agains questions were very good but they didn't appreciate my writing style - 78 80 marks.
    UPSC score 145+156.

    It's about building concepts, show your answers to someone experienced or participate in insights initiative for pub ad.
    Won't give judgement on which test series to join, just told what I experienced or know.

    I just gathered more content - CA + Aribam + Net. Also, I checked copies of other guys who scored well in P2. They use to write answers in an elaborate manner.
    With more content, I modified my answer writing style for P2. May be that worked for me and changed score 99 to 156.

    Yes, insights will help you. Usually previous year questions are discussed but you get fresh perspectives, comparative analysis and lot of examples. I will also try to write some answers there.. Coz m again not joining any test series.

  • I joined pavan sir's test series last year. Scored 113+146 and missed cutoff by 16 marks(gen) mainly because of Paper 1.

    Questions are repeated from previous years but main outcome is the simplicity with which he explains the approach to question. Checks all the copies by himself but after some time, the comments get repetitive.

    It is very difficult to get doubts cleared as he is always busy. But if you get hold of him, explains everything nicely.

    Not joining his test series this year as 1.I'm in the zone(104-106) and 2. writing skills is not problem but knowledge is, which can be improved by further study not by test series.

    In case any one is planning to join pavan sir's test series, I will appreciate if you can provide me the question papers.
