edited August 2015 in Coaching & Websites
This forum has many senior guys, infact m also from them, please help me in this.
I have given two mains 2013 and 2014 but i m not able to clear mains....so this time i need to change my strategy esp focus on answer writing....so delhi is the best place to go and join any test series but is it possible to study back at home with answer writing all on yourself....actually its my third attempt so have to think financially as delhi is a costly place to live in(kab tk ghar vaalon se paise maangta rahunga)...please guys help whether i should to go to delhi...if yes then which test series and what place to live in like rajendra nagar or some other like patel nagar???

  • if you feel that its costly in delhi try some online test series which uploads discussion video
    like vision or gs score .. to save money i am suggesting you ...
    suggestions cannot be given without knowing your profile like optional , background and
    previous marks to know in what subjects you are weak ..

  • @BOT: if you could manage an environment like exam - exactly 3 hours for attempting paper, no source referring in between and no mercy to yourself whatever case may be, then i would suggest you to join an online test series like vision (where you can download the question paper and answer script -- take a print out --- attempt as per your suitability but don;t keep on delaying otherwise it will create backlog --- upload it back --- and get it evaluated within 2 week sometime 3 weeks --- check your mistakes and work on suggestion --- compare your performance with others --- refer model answer and discussion video --- can mail and call the faculty)

    Also don;t take test series from guys like amitgupta (one who has commented above) because these are easily available in Delhi at every bookshop at cost like Rs 20-30 per test but in that you will get only questions and blank sheet to answer ... no evaluation, feedback, discussion etc

    Also you can start writing practice at Insight on India (@ free of cost) but feedback process is based on peers review.
