Insights Prelims Test Series-2014 – Join It Before It’s Too Late


The competition is getting tough. To be ahead you must prepare carefully and consistently. Carefully because the market is flooded with irrelevant books and coaching materials. Add to this wrong guidance.

Consistency is very important if you want to clear this exam. Without it, you will be wasting a lot of time now and then. When you waste lots of time now, this mistake takes a toll on your preparation when exam is very near. The pressure builds and performance suffers.

Preliminary exam paper-I is crucial in two aspects: first, if you prepare thoroughly the syllabus given for this paper, it build a strong foundation to all the Four General Studies papers of Mains exam. Secondly, it is important to get at least 50-60 questions correct in it as you never know what UPSC has in store for you in future: it might make Paper-2 just qualifying in nature; or it might make it tough by including more aptitude questions; or it can even make paper-1 very tough and fix minimum cut-off.

These are just rumors. The present trend might continue as well. Even then, paper-1 is very important from the Mains point of view. You can not just rely on Paper-2 to score very good marks and get qualified for Mains. If you have a strong foundation before prelims itself, the journey after prelims become easy and you can just focus on answer writing practice.

Considering all the factors, we designed our test series to give you a best practice and push you to study thoroughly the basics.
