PRELIMINARY TEST SERIES 2022

August 22, 2021- May 2022

The Preliminary Test is the most challenging stage of the Civil Services Examination. Nearly 5 lakh candidates appear in the preliminary exam each year. CSAT i.e. G.S. Paper 2 was made qualifying in 2015. Preliminary stage is designed to eliminate non-serious candidates from entering the Main Examination. As only 100 questions decide your entry into the Main Examination, the leeway for committing errors in this stage is miniscule. In recent years of  2017, 2018 and 2019 papers tested the creative intelligence and problem solving skills of the candidates. 

PREPARATION STRATEGY FOR UPSC PRELIMINARY EXAM:

To simplify, the UPSC preliminary exam strategy can be divided two stages:

  • First stage: Syllabus coverage and conceptual clarity 

  • Second stage: Practice MCQs: Practice of MCQs is of extreme importance, self evaluation will guide one in the right direction and will help in covering uncovered portions for the exam. 

Next year the Prelim Test is expected to be held in May- June  2022, thus we are pleased to announce that we are pleased to announce the launch of Civil Services Preliminary Test Series 2022.

Components of course:

  • Test followed by artificial intelligence driven analysis of result.

  • Detailed explanation pdf and video.

  • Personalised doubt resolution.

  • This  test series will consist of 30 tests, 24 G.S. test and 6 CSAT tests. 

COURSE FEES: Rs. 2990 and if you register yourself before 11: 59 pm on 15th August 2021, you get 50% discount and the course fees is 1495
