Review of IGP by Iasmocks.com of pizzza sir

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.



3. @pizzza 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

  • I just want to bring to everyone a notice that last year one of my friends has posted a link to his app and his account was deleted and banned.

    I have seen so many people who have posted links to their blogs and paid programs , accounts being banned.

    Nothing against you pizza Sir but why is Forum blind to commercial activity promotion by iasmock?

    You have not shied away from deleting chrome Ias threads when they were posting links. Even threads were deleted.


    Even India Bhai one thread which was specifically stating his course and price and links were deleted by esteemed moderator and owners of the forum.


    Is forum promoting this venture of theirs via pizza or is it being paid for like advertisements are paid for.

    As far as I remember root has clarified that only banner ads are paid for by advertisers and forum does not have give access to threads for commercial activities .

    Then why is this happening ? Is it because pizza has been a moderator ?

    I also want to know if I have a blog and I am running my mock can I also create a thread and will or will not forum delete my thread because I may not be popular here or if I am not a moderator here ?

    Just clarifying things. Because root had much higher standards for rules and not allowing any coaching - online or offline promotion in threads .
