Mains 2018 Test Series Group - following VisionIAS Schedule

Background: I am already in Govt. job through CGL. I have written my first prelim this year halfheartedly ,without any coaching , and I am scoring 95 as per FI's key.

Future Plan: I firmly believe that answer writing is the key to clear UPSC and therefore I'll join VISION mains test series which will be launched in December.

I have observed that Vision keeps its mains test series syllabus same in every year. I am planning to revise the syllabus (as I have already covered it once) strictly as per the syllabus of Vision last year's mains test series, which has 17 section wise tests. I'll also write tests as per the schedule (i.e. 7 days gap) and hence aiming to complete the syllabus once before joining this years real test series in December.

If any serious aspirant wants to follow this plan, then we can make a small whatsapp group of 5-6 members so that we can check answers among ourselves. If this study plan suits your style and you are interested, please PM me your no. Whatsapp will be used only to ask doubts and answer checking.

    This link can be used to join the group. It'll be heavily moderated to keep the non-serious aspirants out. Half hour activity window to ask doubts, if any, will be fixed. 1st test is scheduled on 9th July and after that every week as per sectional syllabus of Vision's test series.
