for kharai camel question .. they can swim for 10 km in seawater , so answer should be only 2
Sir, I am preparing for UPSC 2018 from Delhi. I have completed my Computer Engineering & I know that in today's world it's possible to crack this exam without any coaching. But my parents are telling to join any classes and they are suggesting to join Vajiram & Ravi. They are like if you join coaching classes atleast you will get guidance of seniors & people who are into this for years. You will know where you stand on periodic basis & looking at that can try to improve & correct your mistakes that you are making in the past. I am not able to make them understand that all the materials are available on Internet. So can you please tell me if Vajiram & Ravi is good to join or some other classes. I have been following Unacademy from last 3 months or more so this is the best source for me to cover up my portions. But if I have to join any classes then which classes should I go for? It would be of great help if you can advice me on this :slight_smile: Thank you so much :slight_smile:
Hey bro.. going and not going to coaching has both pros and cons... if u go to coaching you can find fellow aspirants with whom you can discuss and also there would be lots of difference between direct interaction with teachers and online tutors..pros for unacademy you can sit at home and prepare more seriously and it can save lot of time in some topics which we can understand easily by studying from book/video. So choose wisely mine was just a suggestion. All the best :)
