Interactive Tests

Background

  • Generally, 9 to 10 tests are announced in conventional test series. Students join with a commitment that he/she will write all the tests and get performance improved. But, practically an average of 3 to 5 tests is written by the student. It is primarily on account of imbalance between test schedule and study schedule of the student besides time pressure to prepare of GS along with the optional subject. Thereby student realizes value less than half the fee paid.
  • A test series without detailed guidance by the teacher is harmful to confidence and learning of the candidate. Conventional test series is fault-finding by nature. It generally makes the student falsely feel that his knowledge and writing skills are poor. Test series need to be a training session. If a ‘live test’ session is conducted by the teacher (before actual test), students can perform better in the written test. We call it an interactive test.

Concept

  • As the name signifies, the test session is interactive between the teacher and students. In this interaction, teacher aims at explaining exact demand of the question besides contents and flow of the answer. Students are expected to stay fully prepared before the Interactive tests, not compulsorily. 

The approach of the tests is as follows:

  1. Test paper and answer sheet are of same conventional nature. But students are not required to write answers in detail.
  2. Rather, all the questions are taken one-by-one. At first, students are given 4 to 10 minutes for each question (depending upon the size of answer and marks) to prepare major skeleton (or structure) of the answer in points form or briefly.
  3. Once it is done, the teacher asks students about major points they have written beside flow thereof.
  4. Rectification is done by the teacher on the spot about contents of answer and approach to writing. Here teacher guides about relevance/irrelevance/correctness/errors and flow of contents written and spoken by the student.
  5. Thereafter, teacher discusses model answer with help of projector (Model answer is pre-written by the teacher). Students get a model answer immediately after the test.
  6. In this manner all the questions are taken, one-by-one.
  7. At the end of the session, printed copy of model answer is given to the students.

Fees for New Candidates: Rs. 15,500
