At the outset, I would like to thank Praveen Kishore Sir for his contribution to my success. I had joined Sir's institute in 2016 for test series and as I wrote tests and sat in classroom discussions. I began to feel that my knowledge has constantly improved. Even in my last attempt I had very good marks in Sociology because of the 1) Discussions, I heard in Sir's Classroom 2) because of innovative questions he used to set in the test series, and finally, 3) The rich material he has compiled in booklets. Once again thank you Praveen Kishore Sir.

I would like to thank Praveen Kishore Sir for his fabulous guidance as a part of Sociology test series that I had joined at NICE IAS coaching institute. Since I had prepared sociology on my own, there were many concepts which were not clear to me, however, Sir made sociology concepts lucid and so easy to understand that I began to love the subject even more. I saw marked improvement in the structuring of my answers. Sir pointed the flaws in my answers in test series – an important flaw that he highlighted was lack of flow and continuity. I wrote 5 tests and got Sir’s important feedback. Thanks a lot once again Sir. Your guidance has been extremely crucial in my success.


Being a working candidate I was dependent on taking the classes on weekends which was thereby hampering my schedule of regularly keeping up with the studies. However with the help of different courses offered on neostencil and the advantage of watching the lecture at my own convenience, I could manage my study routine and now I can plan my studies depending upon what I want to study when. Great work !


Praveen Sir' s sociology test series was a perfect combination of how and what to write while structuring a perfect answer. I am glad that I got a chance to get the feedbacks on my answers and improvise my writing skills under the guidance of Sir through NeoStencil. Thank you NeoStencil for taking the charge and helping the candidates all over the country.
