Worthiness of joining Vajiram and ravi

Is it worthy to join vajiram and ravi?


  • If you are wealthy then it's worthy.
  • I need more explanation to this answer
  • I have to convince to my parents
  • Search option use karlo.Forumias main bhi and google main bhi.You'll feel proud of yourself.
  • You'll have to do lots n lots of self study even after joining coaching
  • So better do self study
  • the regret of joining a coaching is much less than of not joining it.
    If you have time and money and faith than surely go for it. while Joining a coaching wouldnt ensure your selection but it certainly helps in your preparation. Although, be clear about your "why you joined" and "what you hope to achieve" throughout your coaching period. Lot of people go offtrack and become disillusioned with the coachings therefore having faith is very important no matter which coaching you join. Also, don't expect to be spoonfed if a teacher is not good try finishing things at your own level.
    Personal Suggestion : Join a coaching which also offers online lectures. This way even if you miss some lectures you will be able to complete your notes. This will also help check your tendency to miss a class because you were absent in the previous one.
  • no not at all
    No signature
  • it would be better to join seperate module for each subject,. bcz in vajiram u wont get the subject continuity. more over it is very much crowded. 300 t0 400 students per batch.
  • I have studied in Vajiram. Though its a good institute but its not worth spending over 1 lakh and getting stuck for 9-10 months. They dont have a flexible timetable and yes the classroom crowded i.e, 250-300 students and very congested.
    Instead as someone with experience i would suggest that you rather join a test series and evaluate yourself. You need to have self discipline so that you can cover the topics through self study at home and sit for the test series.
    This is what i would advise to myself if i could go back in time in a TIME MACHINE!!
  • Se genuinely there are two aspects
    pros </>
    1. U get to the point material and guidance
    2. The coaching provides somewhat dicipline and a timetable
    3. The teachers help you to solve doubts , but nt possible in big coaching instittutes like vaji

    1. Too costly and ROI ? Return on investmemt is poor
    2. If u cnt dicipline yourself without coaching coaching isnt a jadu ki pufiya
    3. All material is available be it on Unacademy Mrunal etc mrunals quality is way better then top economy r geo teachers
    4. U can get materials /videos of visionIAS and other institutes at fraction of cost (say20-30k)
    once again HUSTLE
  • I studied at college and cleared pre in First attempt.
    I dont think coaching is required.
    It is a bheed bakri system , with no flexibility, instead purchase books, get internet, and join test series of Forum, IASBABA, Insights, etc anyone.
    Peace is the most important part during preparation, Delhi doesnt have peace.
    As said in the above comment , discipline cannot itself come from coaching.
    Every thing on internet now a days, only thing required how to use it effectively.
  • How to do optional subject without coaching
