Daily Prelims test - ForumIAS

Daily Prelims test

Each day we'll do onE full test from available test series (websites, telegram etc) and post our analysis, our shortcomings and hopefully how we plan to improve upon them. It's an open discussion, as long as you write the test and share your score(only so that unnecessary chatter is reduced to a minimum)

I have a question - is GS Score test series better than others like Vision and Insights?

@sankalpr91 no real answer for that, we started with gs score assuming that people must have covered vision, forum test series by now. There's no objective way to decide which test series is better.

Can we be informed about which test we have to do a day prior? I do my tests on the 8:00-10:00 am time slot.

@MaxBlack yeah sure why not, test 35 of gs score today.
Vision tests are too specific so it's meant to be low scoring I guess.

78 attempted- 63 correct 15 wrong, score 116. (Yesterday's score-99.33) - better selection of questions, and attempted more number of questions than yesterday (67).

Unattempted- Q1 Mekong- wasn't sure, Q7 too much info,Q11 wood's dispatch,Q17 wasn't sure if it was started by Vajpayee ji,q21- could have attempted,Q27(other liabilities-economics pending)Q302nd option February 2018 circular was in my mind ,31- could have attempted, Q34- rock systems,q35- 1st statement was doubtful.

Q51 and 52- was not sure,Q62- no idea,Q66 not clear about specific limits, need to revise, Q67no idea,Q74 no idea,q82 over cautious could have attempted, Q84 revise Laxmikant,Q88 no idea, 97 100 over cautious could have attempted

Incorrect-Q6 subsidiary alliance (did not read the 3rd statement carefully),Q32- types of trees,Q42ekarat,Q45thyagaraj Trinity vs purandardas-father,Q46had read somewhere Gandhara school adopted greek idealism (Apollo like figures) ,Q50thought padur was the largest,Q54forgot WTO didn't exist back then,stupid,Q59(didn't read it properly, interest paid*not received,Q72*(WhatsApp calls seem to take longer time in connecting, need to study about it),Q77President not governor ,Q86chandrabhaga is first in South East Asia, not asia,Q89incorrect was the keyword,Q92decrease in pH,Q96environment ministry final approval,Q98 legally binding

Paper was pretty much standard and on the easy side. Failed to read the keywords in question and statements, need to avoid such unforced errors.

Lets make a list of test we want to do. What say?

@Freakhoto yeah sure, what I was thinking that most of us must have attempted vision or forumias prelims test papers already,so we could go through other alternatives (for maximum utility). We can keep switching in between, like 2 full tests of gs score then maybe 

2 of ksg and so on for variety

Test 35

I found the test pretty good. Polity was relatively easy.

C-64 W-31 UA-5

Total 107.XX

Note to self:

- Read question properly, pay attention to detail. Every wrong answer costs you 2.66. Could make or break the score on D-Day.

- Don’t overthink options. Seems like Vision has bent my mind to think too much.

Few imp learnings among others:

GEAC only gives technical approval for GMO, final approval with Environment Minister.

UN Forum On Forests is under ECOSOC

Yogyakarta principles related to gender and sexual orientation. And are binding.

Abul Kalam Azad presided over Ramgarh Session 1940.

Friends should we continue with GS score test 37 or switch to another test series for variety (ex- next IAS or ksg or insights or any other. Please share your views

@Chanakya With just 7-8 tests more I think we can finish this off in a week’s time and then move to others.
But fine with switching too, so whatever works...
