One thing I can say with a little responsibility (I have believed this since a long time though) is that Vision 365 is a complete waste of time for those who need short notes to internalise content (Like me)

Not only UPSC, but any paper won't ask the topics that they have been dumping in the previous 2-3 years. The quality of content is also poor (again saying this with a sense of responsibility)

Those massive booklets have only 3-5 important issues which can anyway be prepared through Test series - I2U2 etc (Reverse engineering).

Another reason I believe for that may be UPSC scanning the popular content booklets both for prelims as well as Mains 

I may be wrong in future and I am no authority to pass verdicts but Vision 365 has had very very low output ratio in both Prelims & Mains in all my 4 attempts at this exam. Just want some new entrants reading this to consider this alternate opinion as well because I know people keeping everything aside to just read these booklets. They are NOT AT ALL SACROSANCT (Also don't ask which magazine to read please :P)

Shi pakde hain.

Qsn paper aisa aata hai since last 3 years that it feels you are writing the paper not after years of preparation but impromptu,  making up stuff on the go. Also not to talk about the huge difference between the content that we puke during test series and the content we end up actually writing during exam 🤣

GS 2 conventional laga

mujhe to Sab Unconventional lag rha aajkal. Ek to qsn dekh ke vomit krne ka Maan kar rha. I don't know much but I feel Quality of qsns asked has declined like the quality of economic survey :p

I don't understand one thing, for 250 words in gs 1 to 3 UPSC gives 3 pages and for same 250 words case study they give around 4.5 pages.

Ab samj hi nahi aata ki word limits me rhe ya pages bhare.

@Aspirant123 I remember Buddhism theory of kshanikvada, like every moment is changing, each moment new skin grows. just like that every moment new water comes in river, time is passing and you cant go back in past.

Agree to everything, but

Actually gs 3 mein iss bar accha khasa vision se tha esp science, agri, environment and security

So outright dismiss karne se better to contain the fomo end to end padho hi mat, index se lelo topics jo lagein of some value and bas 5-6 points bna lo (james webb, vaccine development, maritime sec, agri marketing wagerah wagerah)

Forum ke 2 flts se bhi the 3-4 direct hits 

Whenever the paper is on probable lines, these things do help

GS4 : I wrote with the Maximum speed i can. Started with Section A. Yet left First Case study. And A Sub part in last case Study. My hand started painting after an hour and was pinching till midnight. Used volini to stop.
