We just completed our Test Series Program for Mains 2018. Many questions and themes have been repeated from our 12 Full-Length Tests. We are in the process of compiling the list and will be sharing the same ASAP.
We are excited to launch our Full Year Mains Test Series Program for 2019. As usual, we are incorporating a lot of feedback and bringing a better offering.
1. Checked Copy Discussion on Phone
We are known to provide individual attention to students. We have further standardized our program. Now students can schedule a call within 2 days of receiving their checked copies by replying back to us with their availabilities. We have kept it 2 days so your mentors can easily recall your attempt.
This is the biggest reason why you should join our TS. Major issues with your attempt will be highlighted and your improvement will be tracked in subsequent tests.
2. Question Formulation
Our questions will now specifically state the following
>Whether they are straightforward or thought-provoking/analytical.
>Whether they have subparts.
>Why this question - similar previous year questions, the importance of the theme, etc.
CD Innovation - Rather than the regular uninspiring questions, we have gone the extra mile and crafted unique, intellectually-stimulating questions. These will reward analytical ability and critical thinking. These questions will be marked with a 'star'.
3. Model Answers
> For 'thought-provoking/analytical' type of questions, we'll provide the best way to approach them.
> Alternate introductions
> Sub-headings and categorization to enhance readability and answer structure.
> Color coding for main arguments, reports, data, scholars, etc.
> OTB - *Out of the box points for additional marks*
4. Answer Checking
Answer-copy evaluation in the industry has become stagnant. The focus is restricted to superficial, memory-based lapses rather than on analytical excellence and cross-domain inter-linkages.
Our stress will be on the following -
1. Superior introduction and conclusion.
2. Usage of subject-specific vocabulary.
3. Articulation proficiency.
4. Substantiating evidence like Government and International Reports and Indices.
5. Prominent and contemporary examples.
Thorough answer checking with oversight of rankers like Dr. Vipin Garg (AIR 20), Swapnil Pawar (AIR 525)
5. Video Discussion
There will be a video discussion after every test where the mentor will discuss how you can write the best answers to every question. Mentors will also be sharing answer writing strategy with students to gain extra marks in Mains
6. Telegram Group
We believe in constant guidance and support approach and hence provide a dedicated telegram group for students of the module for peer discussions as well as doubt clearance via mentors.
The group will also have toppers who will personally guide the students. The students can always raise there preparation related query in the group.
7. Magazines, listicles and other relevant study material
Supplementary content provided will be helpful in covering multiple related questions.
