Mains Strategy, test series and answer writing discussions

The group is mostly for people who are looking to quickly get into preparation mode. I have written mains twice but have not been able to qualify, missing by less than 10 marks both the times. Hence I feel I need a strategy change. So this discussion.


  • If anyone stumbles upon this post and think there is another discussion going on about this, please tell, I will close this one and join there.
  • My main query is, how to make crisp notes for mains, like how do I divide the topics properly, then what should be my routine. I am asking these despite 2 mains because I realise I have been doing something wrong so need to revisit the basics
  • U need to get review / get answers checked first
    You should consider joining some answer writing tests eries or mentorship programme
    time to leave forum,too much bakaar and nothing valueable being discussed : its been a nice journey
