    This may be a stupid question to ask, but can you tell me what pen you used? I am facing problem with speed due to wrong selection of pens.

    Gaurav Agrawal sir is the gold standard for conduct and demeanor. He has been a great inspiration for me.

    Now to be mentioned in the same sentence with him, it makes me happy. :)

    Thank you sir. I was also in search of a good pen.
    Last year, I used v7.. But It left impression of the ink on the other side of the mais answer sheet. I was worried and was looking to switch over to a new pen for this year.

    Now I will use v5 . :)

    The nib is definitely not crazy thin. Infact it is a little too thick for my taste. V7 feels like a paintbrush for me, V5 is ideal for most. I like thin nibs so cheap ball pens are my game.
    Leaving forum for now. All the best to everyone!

    I use the classmate octane (cheap ball pen) right now. But I'm getting slower with it. Someone asked me to try the air ball.
    What cheap pen are you using?

  • Sir, I did my coaching and appeared for prelims on this 3rd June. I didn't clear pre. I am starting my preparation again for next year with whatever knowledge base I have from last 1year. Sir, I want to ask you that should I join test series for optional ( PSIR) and/or GS ?
    or should I prepare till November and then join some gs test series?
    Also what should be approach for optional from now?

    You can try V7.

    I found the same experience with V5. And I really like V7 that way.

    I'm using rorito i skate and V5.
    For essay I use V5 since I get slowed down by it but my handwriting is great when I use it (and we have the luxury of time in essays).

    Otherwise it's i skate for optional and gs, shit handwriting but I can write fast. I use classmate octane while making notes.

    I guess you'll really like V5 and V7, give both a try. For people with big handwriting V7 is ideal. For normal handwriting V5. I have a relatively small handwriting so ball pens.
    Leaving forum for now. All the best to everyone!

    Will buy one of both today and try them in tests this week! Thanks for this!

  • V7 is definitely good pen. The only thing worries me is the dots which are created on the other side of the page.
    Otherwise ,it provides good writing speed.

    Hauser company k pen bhi I like very much.
    Hauser sonic gel is my favourite. It costs only 10 rs.. And very smooth pen..
    But now I gonna try v5.

    Sir,
    I have a doubt regarding the way you have written answers for the GS. For example,

    In this question, you have used arrows for writing conclusions. I had a perception that writing in para in conclusion attract marks because the professors who check the copies are orthodox and like to see the answers in a format. However observing the style of your presentation in answering questions, I can see your answers have more visibility vis-a-vis an answer written in paragraph form.

    Kindly, tell did you follow this style even in the actual exam or it was just in the mock test.

    Regards,
    Modernbudha
