INSIGHTS offline classes(insightsonindia.com classes in bangalore).

edited April 2014 in Coaching & Websites
In a reply to my query team insights has told that they are planning to start a very intensive program for UPSC Mains . Please share your experiences that you have about the offline classes(attended or heard from those who are attending). As far as the website goes its the best for UPSC prep. Even their test series was much better than vaji and CL.
The website is excellent but how is the classroom guidance. Please guide me regarding the offline classes. Also share the fees of coaching and cost of living in b'lore.
seniors please provide suggestion:

  • Not from Bangalore. Sorry.
    Prelims : 2/5; Mains : 0/2; Interview : 0; Remainder : 1+1 (Tired but not; Retired) / Medical Science / Kolkata / Nihilist extraordinaire | Thanks a lot...
  • Really indebted to our seniors for such selfless contribution on this forum. I am new here and was going through the forum . Really sir's you deserve to be an IAS. amazing selfless service to the society ^:)^
  • @ksonu

    Sorry mate !
    I am not from B'lore and neither I am enrolled in the offline guidance program of insights .Though I agree with you that their test series is great and their online guidance is very good indeed .
    The fault , dear Brutus, is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that we are underlings .
  • The intensive program covers only mock test series and 1-2 hour discussion on questions. No formal teaching available. Paper evaluation by peers and 2 teachers. Best suited for those who have completed the mains portion before. It is difficult for newbies to cover all portion as 4-5 hours everyday goes for coaching itself. Considering 100 days gap this year, you got to make wise decision based on your level of preparation.
  • @ksonu i think its better to complete the syllabus first and then join that insights offline coaching! There's no formal teaching there and it seems only "answer writing" discussion goes on.. If u aren't from Bangalore then I dont see a reason why u should move in here just to write answers!
    There's already one thread on its coaching related info , go through it..

  • any idea about the fees they charge?
  • @ksonu can you let me know more details about it when it is starting .. Or atleast give mail id of insight
  • edited April 2014
    @ksonu: Fees is less than 1/3 of any institutions in Delhi or anywhere else for that matter. And my cost of living in Bangalore is hardly 6K/month for food & accomodation.
    But like Sid said difficult for newbies to cover all portion. Better to complete mains portion or if you have already cleared mains. There is a news that next batch is going to be different from ours, with intense training right from the very basics & extra 2 months
    There is individual feedback on every test you write.This is my 2nd attempt, so training here has made me realise importance of answer writing I took for granted.
  • Nevertheless from South India , not much knowledge of Banglore centers 8->
    2017--> 8th attempt
  • @kisna kindly check you inbox once

  • @Neywan & others Kindly give your opinion.

    I am appearing with Medical Science optional for CSE 2014. At present putting up at Karol bagh, Delhi. I have heard Insights have started offline coaching in banglore. and 2nd Batch is going to start from Sept. 2014 (sort of crash course)
    .any one from banglore here ? Any idea about the quality of peer group there and quality of discussion ?
     I want to relocate to banglore from Delhi. Hence little bit of apprehension. Kindly suggest your opinion. As insights is a new player in the market. but they are stressing more on writing practice. and that is what for which I am planning to go there .give your suggestions.

    If you are originally from Bangalore, and if you have financial and emotional issues staying at Delhi, you may as well go for moving to Bangalore.

    Insights is a new player and if you are in bangalore, you can look upto them as a guide or so.

    But especially moving to bangalore for insights would not be wise. I wouldn't do it if I were you.


    Visit synergy and sign up for their mains test series. They are THE best.

    You could start writing answers yourself with your flatmates and you could seek peer review. With an open mind, you will see a lot of improvement in your writing skills within a few weeks.
