Any idea how good is the next ias test series? Is it recommended or will practicing questions from Made easy's ESE test series will be better?

@Aspirant123Yes. But scoring over 300 has become very difficult. Maybe due to strict normalisation. UPSC report shows success rate of civil enginerring lowest at 2.5%.

@abhinav23raj436Success ratio is low because it is one of the lengthiest optional.If u give it more time,GS will surely get hit and vice versa is true as well.
Regarding normalisation,the problem is not much regarding scaling,the actual problem is the teachers having a tendency to give low marks in theory/Paper 2.

@g12345Paper 1 was lengthy. Theory portion of paper 2 was difficult. The type of questions asked in Paper 2 were different than previous year. Both papers were more similar to Engineering Services Paper than previous year Civil Services paper.
