Is Joining IAS (Mains) Test Series, Compulsory
Nothing can be compulsory, but yes, it would be rational decision to EVALUATE YOURSELF BEFORE THE UPSC EVALUATES YOU.
Mock Test Series will help you in multifaceted ways:
Punctuality: Due to pre-scheduled date, you will be mentally forced to focus on the units of your Sociology test (exam). This will consciously or unconsciously instill habit of punctuality in you.
Time Management: You will have around 19 questions but time available will remain as usual i.e. three (3) hours. Through repeated Sociology IAS (mains) mock test you will improve your writing speed as well as learn time-management.
Prioritization Skill: Many a time students have lots of knowledge/information about the questioned topic but they feel scarcity of time. During Sociology IAS (mains) mock test you will learn the art of prioritization.
Answer Format: Content of the topic remains almost the same but UPSC wants their candidate to format their answers according to the demand of the keyword(s). Example: Discuss, explain, illustrate, evaluate etc. With the feedback, comment and notes for improvement, teacher will guide you to write answer in an appropriate format.
Sociological Answer-writing: Sociology is a very easy and understandable subject. Students of any academic background can easily grasp the subject-matter. But to score high, you need to write a sociological answer, general studies type answer is not compatible with Sociology. Examiners hate it, and may award low marks. On the other hand, if same information is converted into Sociological answer skillfully, there will be huge difference of marks obtained.
Exposure to New Questions: Appearing in mock Sociology IAS (mains) Test Series, you get exposed to many new questions. This helps you to develop ability to adjust yourself better in unknown condition. In real examination, you will not be taken aback because you had already experienced such type of situations during your mock test. Further, it will teach you to deal with such questions in logically relevant way.
