Return on investment on essay , paper 4 coaching...To do or Not to do,that is the question

@ArindamSarkar @woman @Stardust @Neyawn @Tikku @andy133

One thing that has been evident in 2013 mains is GS can't be a differentiator . Optional , interview marks , essay played the most important role .
do you think essay and paper 4 coaching can increase my mains score by, let's say , 50 marks ? How will be RoI on it .....
views please !

And one more query .... What do you think of vision ias main evaluation criteria ? is it satisfactory or is it too random just like UPSC GS paper 2 evaluation ?

    @Woodpecker Whats your views dude . Are you satisfied with Vision ias evaluation or is it too much to ask for..
  • I haven't joined anything yet and don't plan to join any either. I'm currently looking for essay answersheets of toppers from coaching centres. I'll use them to get an idea about what exactly the approach ought to be like. Rest is dependent on your writing and time-management skills.

    Practice should be the main target as far as essays are concerned. GS should provide you with ample fodder material.
    Prelims : 2/5; Mains : 0/2; Interview : 0; Remainder : 1+1 (Tired but not; Retired) / Medical Science / Kolkata / Nihilist extraordinaire | Thanks a lot...
  • @veni_vedi_vici so what is your take. Where are you going to join???
  • @veni_vedi_vici I have always thought of return on Investment and it has had disastrous effects in academics and but not in economics.On a serious note, Do not take any chance. Even if you loose interview or finals by 4 marks, there should be no regrets as you did everything you could. Atleast join a test series.
