  • They still haven't uploaded the QP. This has become a recurring issue. ๐Ÿ˜ 
    Atleast they should provide the time when they're going to upload. We cannot keep waiting, refreshing page, raising tickets.
    Please maintain a schedule for uploading pdf of QP @Neyawn

  • If i am not wrong, they have done it already. It was reflecting since the afternoon on my portal.

  • Anyway, they should seriously think about this

  • @Omen They've uploaded it on my portal at 4.10pm

  • @root
    Again the same issue.
    It seems PTS is only for offline test takers.
    I'm done with raising tickets, waiting for uploading QP pdf.
    @root TImetable is key for this exam. And this erratic uploading of QP (after raising tickets, after a day/2 of offline exam) disturbs the timetable of aspirants)
    Atleast tell the time when it's going to be uploaded regularly

  • explanation provided in simulator tests sucks. please spend more time and resources while framing explanations. I hope that wouldn't be too much to expect from an institute that claims that "we build officers".

  • consider this explanation for instance :
    In particular, this premium became increasingly pronounced as a result of the shale gas revolution in North America and its knock-on effects in Europe, where the displacement from 2008 onward of new supplies of LNG originally intended for the U.S. market effectively triggered a disconnect between the prices generated by the traded markets and the oil-indexed prices that had until then predominated in the long-term contracts that accounted for the great majority of the gas being supplied into continental Europe.

    2k students x 6k fees , do the maths. dont we deserve better than this ?

  • Project Sashakt aims to strengthen the credit capacity, credit culture and credit
    portfolio of public sector banks. Explaining the project, Goyal shed light on the guiding principles of an Asset Management Company resolution approach, under which an independent AMC would be set up to focus on asset turn around, job creation and protection. The AMC will be set up by state-run banks for resolution of loans above Rs 500 crore.

    seedhe newspaper se chipka dia explanation, atleast vikaspedia ya koi authentic source scheme ko explain kar skte ๐Ÿ˜ 

  • @Luffy

    We have clarified our position in another thread created by the user. We are sharing a snapshot of that.

    But since students are continuously asking for QP soft copy the moment test goes live, we will make it a point to do it now onwards.

    If you are facing a problem in the timing of the test going live please write to us immediately at helpdesk@forumias.academy.

  • @John_Titor

    Thank you for sharing the feedback. We are looking into in on a priority basis. Allow us some time, we will try to resolve it to your satisfaction.

  • @ShantanuA They haven't uploaded Qp yet for Sim-7 ๐Ÿ˜

  • forum nahi sudharne wala.
    i too was looking for this thread.

  • @Omen It seems they consider only offline test takers as their students :

    I'm the offline student I've left the tests already ๐Ÿ˜‘ as they are concerned only with their old students, Cancelling classes without intimation.I thought to join mains too.But forget it.Will never join in any coaching tests/Series.

  • @AryaStark19 ๐Ÿ˜•

  • @Luffy

    Both the online test and soft copy simultaneously were uploaded and made live together yesterday. The solutions have been uploaded today morning at 11 AM.

    The timing for the simulator (online) going live is 5 PM. This was mentioned in the brochure as well. If you are facing issue due to this please write to us at helpdesk@forumias.academy.

    There was no paper on Sunday owing to General Election in Delhi on 12/05/2019.

  • @AryaStark19

    Can you please let me know, this is with regard to which classes.

    I am sorry that you have faced inconvenience.

    We are bothered about every single student and work hard to aid every student in their endeavour.

    If there have been some unintentional gaps in our service we regret the same. Also, we will make sure we don't repeat the same if you provide targeted feedback for us to work upon.

    Last 3 classes of CA and CA tests were uninformed and most essentially in April "The 40 days prelims handling session" was cancelled suddenly when we arrived classroom, the mgt simply said sorry this session was cancelled.This session is cancelled only for our batch I.e New students but been conducted to other batches previous day those who are old students or GS students of forum I felt biased nature.
    โ€ขHow we felt after travelling from another corner of Delhi(South) (>11kms) specially for this session? (made me sad).
    โ€ขI've joined specifically Simulator and CA ( even though its pretty expensive) as I'm unable to handle stress of prelims to get some last moment guidance and trust on Forum.
    โ€ขI've already mentioned this to management regarding this issue and raised tickets.They said this session will be conducted soon! When after June 2?
    โ€ขI've no issues with Forum faculty they are really good(learnt a lot from Dipin sir,Babu sir from CA classes and Anupam sir from Simulator after test discussions etc).But plz keep in mind of new students who are serious and struggling ๐Ÿ™.
    โ€ขThis biased nature made me to think again to chose Forum after preliminary exam!

  • @Hermione

    I am really sorry you have to face such an inconvenience.

    Firstly, the cancellation was never done with an intention based on the history of association of students with ForumIAS.

    Secondly, the team has been made aware of the inconvenience caused to you and stern warning has been given. We will make sure this never happens with any student ever again.

    We thank you for the feedback and promise that neither you nor any other student will ever face such an issue again at ForumIAS.

  • solution pdf for simulator 4 is corrupted. plz look into it , couldn't save file and lost all highlights ๐Ÿ˜’

  • @John_Titor

    Sure give us some time will get it rectified.

  • @ShantanuA
    The number of mistakes in the answer key in this test is beyond acceptable.
    I am guessing these questions would have been corrected in the offline discussion.
    Can you update a corrigendum of mistakes in the answer key for online students.
    Watching the whole video ( 3 hours plus) is a huge waste of time.
    corrigendum would be of great help.
    And not just for this test but for all the stimulators.

    Moreover, it is highly disappointing to see such mistakes from a test series which charges Rs 6000 for mere 8 tests and goofs up in framing questions in the first instance. ( Q63 stimulator test ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    also their questions are either too easy or too obscure to be answered. it seems like they completely forgot that moderate level questions form the bulk of the paper
    ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ and these smileys suck , we need troll smiley from old platform

  • This post is deleted!
  • @John_Titor This is the major issue I have observed in most non Vision tests
    They seem to not find the โ€œmiddle pathโ€!
    Shankar questions are easy but atleast 10 questions they provide wrong answers in the key,though havenโ€™t solved any forum tests except simulator 0!

  • @Omen There is huge difference in their Pre-Simulators Tests and Simulator Tests. Those tests had good explanations, Minimal/no mistakes. For the Simulators, the case is just reverse. From Vision Answer Explanations, you get many new facts to learn. Same is not the case with Simulators. Its good if they make good tests(matchable to UPSC standards),but Simulators are seriously lacking in Explanations standards.

  • @Omen

    There were clerical mistakes in the answer key which were corrected even before the key was released to the students.
    I will check with my team whether the corrections are being reflected for online test takers or not.
    If they are not updated, they will be immediately done and you can view the changed/corrected answers in the review section only in the Academy portal.

  • I did write the MGP tests with ForumIAS
    That whole process worked for me!
    The on time evaluation process,feed back,mentor call system,solutions were excellent!
    Probably they have too much on their plate right now or the teams that work for diff programs might be totally different hence change in quality

    yes it's worth it if you want to shock yourself out of your comfort zone

  • @Masterojha Vision series Vision Abhyaas plus Vajiram(since I was a student of Vajiram last year I have access to test series this year too) is all I do religiously!
    Rest all I pick questions I donโ€™t know and make notes out of them!
    Simulator 0 was bit off putting for me even though I did score decently-107 odd!

    To be honest, yes they are.
    8 solid upsc likes mocks.
    Stimulated the pattenr of past 8 upsc papers.

  • @Omen

    I have made changes personally in the answer key. You can have a look under review question.

    I will be updating the solution sheet by evening. Allow me the time, I will come up with corrigendum.

  • Which simulator are we talking about?
    Or is it regarding all the simulators (Many simulators had mistakes)?

    What's 'review question' ? (I didn't come across this option anywhere in my academy interface).

    Static, WE can identify the mistakes. But, I'm taking the answers given as valid for Current affairs questions.๐Ÿ˜Ÿ ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ ๐Ÿ“‰ . Not cross checking the CA questions by following the website given (If they had provided in the explanation :|) .

  • When can we expect Online+Offline ranking?

  • This post is deleted!
  • I hate forum's capitalist mentality. Why the hell would you extinguish my unattempted csat simulators after 2nd June? I subscribed vision tests series for prelims in 2017 and even to this day I have access to those tests and actually I attempted 4 csat tests this year itself from that module. Dont act like pricks.
