Vajiram or Sriram? Both Updated Their Fees for 2014.
  • Hello Every one,
    I've decided to appear in UPSC 2014.

    I want to join a coaching institute but I am in a dilemma on which one to choose? either Vajiram or Sriram?

    Both institutes updated their fees which is around 1 Lakh. Vajiram Updated his website with current fees and I called Sriram and they told me the classes will start from 3rd June and Fees will be around 1.10 Lakh. Classes will end on next year in April for both.

    Now, if we invest huge money then ROI should be better.

    Kindly advise me which coaching I should go for.
    Regards

  • :-O with this huge amount of money i think i have to sell my kidney to study there.... anybody interested.. ?? =))
  • get their notes.classes are mere dictations(repeats of handouts at sri) and time waste!!unless you have doubts which you will rarely have in GS if you have done NCERTs sincerely .Even if you have some get it clarified here.

    i've been to both sri and vaji classes.
  • @Eric ....which classes did u find better vajiram or sri??
    You wouldn't like me when i'm angry Because I always back up my rage with facts and documented sources. |Philosophy|

  • sriram is more student friendly.he will give time to ask your doubts.geography is good,history ok,sc-tech -bad.current notes of sri are good.vaji notes are better for the traditional part.

    for classes- sri,
    for notes- vaji

  • sri himself takes polity,eco,IR.they are good.
  • I was in MN today and inquired at a few places. Just like that! Most of the institutes have fees in the same bracket as V&R / Srirams. I could have posted more details, however, one can call them up for specific information. They are too happy to help!

    Rau's website says June batch - 95000.
  • I went to Sriram's last year, the October 2011 to April 2012 batch...

    Subjects that Sriram sir himself takes are really good-polity(incl IR) n economy. He gives time for questions and will clear your doubts patiently

    others-Geography sir was good, khadoos professor types but covered everything nicely

    History was ok. You dont need coaching for history anyways. Just some things which he says are not imp at all. (like mahajanapadas). he is very funny in class, it helps somewhat in spicing up as i still remember some facts n events by of the anecdotes he made. helps in remembering. but then you can do that yourself as well.

    S n T: okay sorts....you have read yourself n ask him if you dont understand anything. Even if he does not know, he will get back to you later.
    Biology-useless


    CSAT-dont make the mistake of going there. They spent a month making us do numeracy...n see for yourself how many questions were asked last prelims from there.
    Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
