Insight Current Affair and Out Of syllabus questions in Test Series

edited January 1 in Test Series
Hi guys , You all know It is not possible to do more than 1 test series effectively, It is advisable to do 1 test series religiously and revise all questions atlest 2 times before prelims. I am following VisionIAS and know importance of insights test series. I have an idea why not we create a group of 35 people each voluntarily taking 1 test and compiling CA and out of Basic book questions from Vision and Insight test series. Only veteran are welcome and those who can distinguish between questions belong to basic syllabus and not.

Make 1 google doc and copy paste those questions and person updating must take backup so unscrupulous elements cant delete it....

    @habibi_ias Finally a smart tactic discussion on forum. I am planning to give Insights TS around mid-Jan. You can count me also! :smiley:
    But why not filter CA from Out-of-syllabus portion too? Considering the fact that their CA questions have high frequency of matches in Prelims.

    Yes raja there will be two type of questions... 1 CA covered in that Test series 2 data not available in basic book that can be very useful...
  • purpose of exercise is to reduce effort and avoid time on topics like how bills passed, bioremediation, largest galcier etc we already spent in Favorite TS e.g. My visionias...

    every TS repeat 80 question from basic stuffs.

    we want to do those questions in TS that designer thought important exam point of view.
  • Yes raja there will be two type of questions... 1 CA covered in that Test series 2 data not available in basic book that can be very useful... example today I seen semi-presidential system govt.. where both PM and President directly elected.. France is that country President responsible for foreign subjects and PM for domestic subjects..... such questions we expect from out of syllabus ...means not available in basic book... like laxmi...

    correct me if above data available .lol

    World's Constitution is not in syllabus of Prelims, but Mains. But now I understood, what you meant by 'Out-of-syllabus'.

    one advise that i always give to people prepare according to Syllabus and UPSC past papers
    All institutes ask questions from their material. In order to be seen different they give useless questions. Last year one test series started asking Ethics questions in Prelims test series lol
    Stick to basics and pattern. Also in UPSC paper one need to get 55-58 correct so one can afford to skip 20 questions :)
