I need some help in PSIR. Feels as if I have not yet learnt writing language of the subject. And was adequately punished in marks assigned.

Also Is some strict checking being pursued in PSIR ? Found one analysis in which average marks was in mid 260s

Please check DM :)

The more number of times you revise the better your hold of the subject will be. Also try and identify the keyword from your notes and revise those multiple times

@Porus @AzadHindFauz @whatonly @sunnykumarroy658377 

I'm preparing for the 2023 attempt and I'm super confused which test series to opt for, SR or GS score?

- I've done my graduation and masters in political science and IR so subject understanding is not a big issue here, its more about answer-writing practice which is exam-oriented 

-Need timely evaluation for submitted tests. I am planning to cover up my optional atleast once by December because I'm really concerned about prelims, already having flunked earlier  

-SR has two writing modules, there's a crash course (a 3 month thing) and an answer writing test series (year round), but they give postal notes with the latter which I do NOT want.  Any suggestions on how I could go about this?  

-GS Score seems lax on the timely evaluation front, although the faculty themselves check the paper it seems?

Going for both test series would be an overkill so I have to stick it out with any one  

Would be grateful if you could help out, and please pin anyone else who you think could provide some suggestions, thanks a lot!
