“I wish I had practiced & polished my techniques and skills for Prelims at the RIGHT TIME! If only I had committed to my goals with discipline, maybe then I could have cleared Prelims! Now I need to invest another year and study for the exam! The cycle never ends!”


These words resonate with countless aspirants who have faced the most challenging stage of the UPSC Civil Services Exam: Prelims!  The weight of guilt, shattered dreams, and the prospect of yet another year of intense preparation can be overwhelming. Each year, lakhs of determined students find themselves in this very situation.


In UPSC CSE 2022, 11,52,000 candidates applied for Prelims, 5-6 lakh appeared, but only 13,090 cleared Prelims. Out of those, 2,529 advanced to the Personality Test, and finally, 933 candidates were recommended for various Services! These numbers serve as a reminder and illustrate the challenging nature of the UPSC CSE and the dedication, determination, and resilience needed to clear it.
