so yesterday was the first test of IGP 2019 , by iasmocks.com by @pizzza
sir . here are my 2 cents on it , a honest review .
1. The first thing that strikes you is the discipline , fixed timeslots motivate you to prepare as you would for upsc exam , the lack of flexibility is blessing in disguise ( there are 2 time slots though)
2. Once you mark an answer u can leave the answer empty , thus its like OMR and one has to be fully conscious of what he/she marks
now coming to the quality of test
1. The test was like a mini upsc test with many tricks up its sleeves , exactly like upsc does
consider the 1st question of the test itself
the question was made so that people are tempted to mark the wrong answer ( B.R Ambedkar )
2. The test had beautifully framed questions that cover the basics eg.
has scheduled current affairs in diff tests but has included a couple of question , which are in news and probable to be asked by upsc
Overall i will give the test series at least a 9/10 , given the hardowrk put by sir , and how beautifully it captures the essence of UPSC
few cons that come to mind are , a) not being a big intitute , the time spend is crucial , eg if detail solutions are provided , then sir cant give tips and guide to improve score , or say if there is an emergency one cannot retake the test , will only get the solutions p.s below i am sharing the pdf of the test
