Ashish Ramesh Jain says “Vision classroom and other teaching based programs were always bad but now even the material quality has gone down significantly. The prelims test series is so routine that if you have sincerely appeared one year, from next year you can solve many questions just by looking at how they were framed.”
Somil says “I had taken vision IAS coaching through online mode. Except for geography none of the subjects were upto the mark. They have a good module but I will say faculty itself wasn’t up to the mark. The cost I paid was 1.30 lakh. I feel my money got wasted. The free stuffs they do is very good but it is all marketing. Better DNT fall for it. The views are completely personal your experience may vary.”
Mansi Jain says “Vision classes are poorly managed with the most horrendous faculty available in the market. Having wasted my money on their online foundation course, I have no hesitation in saying that joining Vision’s online/offline courses could destroy any chances of a prospective UPSC aspirant. Vision is the most unprofessional and sinister player when it comes to classroom coaching for IAS exam. Their classes are plagued with unprofessional, novice and over-hyped faculty. Leaving a few, most of their faculty are academically compromised, blatantly immodest and totally out of sync with exam requirements. Joining any of their classroom courses is not advisable under any circumstances.”
Abhi says “As I spent three years in karol bagh I can share my experiences with you. First , I have enrolled for 2 separate course in vision .But second time while admission I ask for installment payment to the receptionist , But she denied and I again requested to allow me to pay 40000 on two installments within a month that lady rudely replied why you are wasting my time. When you get money then get admission. Any way I got admission there because I m here to achieve my goals. Second, after joining classes I feel only marketing and publicity is there one should go for Vajirao and others on that much fee.. Might you will not get heavy concessions on fee like vision but u will get way better faculties and quality education.”
