For Serious Aspirants Joining Vikas Ranjan Socio Test Series

This is meant to be a serious post, so please do not post frivolous comments.

Any serious aspirant (written Mains atleast once) and joining Vikas Ranjan socio test series, if interested in forming a study group of not more 3-4 people. I believe peer evaluation + motivation will keep us on our toes. Secondly, multiplicity of ideas and viewpoints helps in a subject like Sociology.

About me: Wrote Mains last year with 116+116 in Sociology. Looking to improve upon answer writing (more like what the examiner is looking for in answers)

Thanks for reading.

    Dont join ranjan.
  • Please guys say NO to Vikas Ranjan.

    He doesn't provide a good guidance. Also, he doesn't check all the papers. I am planning to go to consumer forum since he did not check all of my papers and even did not give me guidance on phone as he promised.

    His marking is entirely based on number of words written.

    During One on One guidance he would just repeat what is written in the solutions provided by him.

    His printed notes is a piece of shit.

    About other teachers/institutes I don't know.
