Views about importance of Test series:

Important but stick to one test series genuinely and you can use other test series inputs with respect to current affairs.

What to focus on for Mains Prep?

For essay I looked into previous year question papers and toppers answer sheet to have an idea. I Wrote 4 essays before mains. Analyze the trend of events.  

Having a good writing skill is important. Making notes helps in framing answers.

Tips for students:

People fear to attempt more questions because of negative marks. Try to attend at least 70-75 questions starting with class test series – so that you will learn how to crack the answer.
