Over the period of last 4 years, I’ve regularly analyzed Topper’s answer booklet and best answer copies.
1> Every year VisionIAS shares the test copies of toppers after result. ForumIAS has also started it in 2018. So have a look at each of them.
2> If you can, get in good books of your friend who is enrolled at other coaching institute to share the best copies of each test before mains. This will help you in gauging the level of competition, any new topic that you might have missed, new types of questions (especially at GS Score) and get new ideas for presentation.
3> After every mock test compare your answer copy with the best copy of that particular test. Analyse where can you improve. During this exercise you’ll also understand how subjectivity of examiner plays a important role in the marks you get. Not everything is in your hand. At times your answer might be better but you cant help if once the marks are given.
For example – In my last attempt I enrolled for MGP at ForumIAS and test series at Orient IAS. Then I asked a friends of mine who was enrolled in VisionIAS and GS Score to share best copies from those institute. I asked another friend who used to check copies at Vajiram to share good Ethics and Polity copies.
This might sound too much but it was my Final attempt. Had to do everything possible.
Here is the collection of some of them –
Dont panic and do well,
