      There is so much chaos around offline and online initiatives though the purpose of both is crystal clear from day 1 :

      Offline :

      Advantage :

      1. You will attend all the tests in classroom alike environment.
      2. you will be given hard copy of question paper and OMR sheet to record your answers , so you will get habitual of time management (as far as marking the OMR is concerned).
      3. You will be meeting serious aspirants and subsequently you can form self study groups with them.

      Disadvantage :

      1. You will have to travel to their test center to attend the tests. If you are staying nearby to their center, then well and good, else you will be spending considerable amount of time in travelling (because Bangalore’s traffic rocks! :P).
      2. What if you miss a test? Whether they will allow you to give the test on a different date or not, insight is silent on that.

      Online :

      Advantage :

      1. No need to worry about travel time or location constraints. Whether you are sitting at J&K or in a remote village of Nagaland, you can give the tests provided by you are equipped with a ‘decent’ internet connection.
      2. Give the test as per your comfort. Suppose if you are not prepared for August 18th test, you can give it on a later date. However, same privilege is not available for offline students. Under offline test series, strict time table will be a binding on you.
      3. Less fee as compared to offline (6400 for online / 9000 for offline), though that hardly maters 😀 😉
      Disadvantage :
      1. You will be missing the real touch of the test as you will be giving it from the comfort of your home/office.
      2. Except few, most of the candidates will not feel that ‘heat’ as you will be giving the tests on dates chosen by you and thus there is high possibility that people will keep on postponing the tests thinking they will prepare well and then attempt. However, under offline test series you will have to attend the tests on a definite test hence no other way but you will have to prepare yourself for the impending test well in advance.
      3. Last but not the least, technology can’t replace men in certain areas and classroom teaching is one among them. You will be meeting serious aspirants daily and can discuss various aspects of the examination under offline test series, however you will be deprived from the same in online test series (except few enthusiasts who spend their considerable amount of time in discussing various issues on various online forums).
      Bottom line of discussion is, both online and offline initiatives have the same syllabus and same questions will be asked in both the test series.
      Now its your call if you wish to visit the center or want to attend the tests from the comfort of your home.

  • Vishnushankar

    Is it mandatory to register at the centre, between 10th and 17th? Cant we directly come with receipt on August 18th nad atted firts test

    • harish

      The reason for registering beforehand is for selecting students based on batch and timings as they cannot arrange for all 600 aspirants at a time……….based on registration they will allocate batch and timings for xam……:)……….Its k if u come on 18 but probably u will be alloted last batch that will write xam on 5pm……….bcoz venue wil be wrapped up by 7pm
