Should you join UPSC test series – Abhinav J Jain UPSC

Things to look while joining a test series
Sectional vs Full Tests : Depending on your level of notes, understanding of each keyword of syllabus decide between the two.

I would suggest for sectional one as it gives more comprehensive time for revision. Candidates with 1st, 2nd Mains should definitely go for sectional one

Which Institute: Look for test series schedule, no. of sectional/full tests and see how it fix your study plan for next 3 months. Idea is to write a test after adequate revision.

Study plan for Mains: You can use test series schedule to plan your timeline. It’ll ensure consistency and more revision. Don’t giveup on test series in between. Write all tests for self practice and self-evaluation, more than relying on institute’s feedback.

RRR Aproach – Revision! Revision! Revision!
Make sure you have notes for every keyword on GS syllabus and try to learn them by heart before writing tests. It’ll not only improve your writing speed but will also give you the much needed confidence.
