Motivation for CSE Mains

Hello all, I am preparing for this year mains and attending test series at Vajiram. Despite so much efforts my marks hovering around 50-55. Very much demotivated after consistent dismal performance. Don't know what to do. Please guide me.

Comments

  • They are giving remarks like do this do that.. and reading those remarks make me feel like I know nothing

  • Don't worry.. these marks don't matter.. just believe in yourself and keep studying.
    A lion doesn't concern himself with the opinion of the sheeps.
  • I even got marks in this range in their prelims test. :D
    Don't worry about marks, worry about mistakes and correct them. You will do awesome :)
  • Absolute marks doesn't matter as their valuation standars are different from upsc.
  • Vajiram ke history aur geo me Mujhe 36 the....upsc me 88
  • Bhai Vaji k absolute scores are myth..i never crossed 65 marks score in their test series except once or twice .. in upsc i never dipped below 70 in any paper..

    Just learn from the explanation and comments.. ofcourse comments of few teachers like Ravinderan sir and Manocha sir is very good to incorporate.. so don't be tensed by ABSOLUTE marks but RELATI'VE performance you must be worried about.. and that's too only Reasonably.. in real exam no Test series is approximate..only learn time management/better presentation / content enrichment etc .period.

    ATB :)

    Bhai Vajiram Prelims Test series Was Most Irrelevant with respect to Upsc. I dont know itni Hawa kyu h is coaching ki Also their Mains test question are just average.Visions,Insights and Gs score's Test series questions are way better.
    Now It Ends...

    I also think same thing I hv no issues in completing the paper and hv confidence while writing but coaching classes are not giving enough marks...which motivates me to do better next time.I think 1 must know their strengths like Writing fast N good memory is mine and play The game according to ones own rule dont adopt anyone else strategy Like i cant compromise on my 9 hours sleep. And Waha 1 hour wale thread me i think ppl are concentrating jst on reading some stuff.U hv to learn not read.First Reading acchi hogi toh It will not be necessary to read again and again..Instead completing some stuff in stipulated time Try to read in a way that u retain that stuff till December first week(Gotta find ur own way for this).N no matter if u read 2 books or 10 books...U have to write not more than 250-300 pages in ur 9 papers .baaki toh hum bhi pehli baar hi daav laga rhe hai...

    True bhai. I bought all their papers from market and just solved 1. Questions were pathetic and irrelevant. They try to trick in each option.
