“Having missed the bus by miles as far as Prelims 2018 was concerned, I set myself a clear goal. To ensure I get just as much was needed to cross the threshold, no more, no less. That meant reading a handful of sources multiple times over, practicing a mock test every week, reviewing the answer keys and further related reading. By May 2019, I had done multiple revisions of the standard books either on their own, or through a regular process of mock test review. This helped, in that, the days post Prelims 2019 were not uncertain – I had a reasonable sense of confidence at clearing.” – Jeydev CS(AIR 5 2019)


“I followed offline prelims test series of Insights and also, prelims cum mains integrated study plan that was given to core batch students. I scheduled my day in accordance with the test series timetable. After every test I used to check answers and read answer key in detail. Solutions given by Insights were detailed and helped me understand a topic in –depth. More importantly, research on the allied topics (through links provided in test solutions) helped me a lot (being inquisitive in learning pays one day). I used to score 130+ in Insights offline prelims tests. In CSP-2016, I could score 141+ in paper-1 due to extensive revision of these tests.”-  Nandini KR(AIR 1 2016)

These are just two of the several reviews of our acclaimed Prelims Test Series by toppers’.


Prelims has acquired a reputation lately- of being “unpredictable”, “random”, “lengthy”, and “very tough”. Aspirants struggle the most to overcome this dicey stage. We personally know several talented individuals who have seen several setbacks at this stage, despite their brilliance. Through our interactions with several thousands of students – we have learnt that clearing prelims is a skill that can be acquired and honed with deliberate and intense practice.


Lakhs of candidates appear for the prelims exam, a few thousands (around 9-11k) write mains and a few hundred clear the interview stage. That is scary indeed, right? But let’s not waste time thinking about our chances of clearing this coveted exam. Instead, let’s focus on HOW TO CLEAR each stage. It is possible- several aspirants like you have done it. There is a common thread that binds most of the successful aspirants-SYSTEMATIC PRACTICE, the RIGHT GUIDANCE, HARD-WORK & CONSISTENCY. Focusing on what could have led those few thousands of aspirants to make it successfully to the next round (Mains) has given us clarity about the demand of the exam and has enabled us to hone our approach towards it.


It is widely believed that the U in UPSC stands for “Unpredictable”- but to what extent is this true? Over the past few years, while the paper has become tougher, lengthier & more application-oriented, it hasn’t changed its essential flair. Certain subject-areas from which questions have been asked year after year, remain important, since these are the emerging areas that are of significant interest to a budding bureaucrat. Our analysis says that around 40-45 questions come directly from the basic sources (NCERTs). The remaining questions are analytical and it requires on the-spot-thinking, and application of skills such as identification and elimination.


So what sets an aspirant up for failure at the first stage?
    • Lack of Planning and Prioritization
    • Working hard but not in the right direction(It is a bottomless pit if one chooses to study everything available in the market)
    • Reading advanced material without first understanding basic concepts from NCERTs
    • Lack of Revision: Blindly solving numerous mock tests without analysis  Not learning from Mistakes
    • Not giving mock tests in exam-like conditions


What should Aspirants do?

Given the changing nature of the exam, and the increasing weightage of critical portions, you should follow a dynamic strategy:

    • Build Fundamentals: Read NCERT/Standard books
    • Build Awareness: Read the Hindu/IE and current affairs material
    • Build Knowledge base: Religiously attend a good test series year-round to add significantly to knowledge base and sharpen your preparation
    • Revision
The all-important Question: Why do you need a Test Series?
    • Efficient year-long schedule: You are not preparing for an ordinary exam, it is said to be the mother of all exams. Thus, it requires Discipline, Consistency & Planning. Schedules help you hold yourself accountable, stay calm, achieve milestones and eventually accomplish your goal..
    • Incremental Improvements: in every test. Make mistakes, analyze, learn from them
    • Build & Improve your skills: Elimination techniques, time-management. Nowadays the papers are more inclined towards testing your common sense through tricky, subjective and vague questions. Reading books and ready-made materials will give you lots of knowledge for sure, but they will not empower you with the necessary skills to clear this exam.To cultivate new skills and improve certain aspects you must have an integrated approach where you not only study, but also put to rigorous test what you study on a regular basis.
    • Limiting your sources and learning more from the MCQs: Given the limited time available to an aspirant, it is difficult to identify the critical areas and cover them holistically from multiple sources. This is where Learning from MCQs comes into picture. Our tests identify these areas for you & help you to learn by doing.
    • Regular tests: with a huge student base & live all-India rankings- will give you a fair idea of the fierce competition.
    • Thus, practice, analysis of performance, guidance and revision is the way forward. We have designed the Prelims test series to prepare you for any unconventional paper. Remember, it is not about how many tests you solve, but about familiarizing yourself with unpredictability (QUALITY>QUANTITY).



How do we prepare you for uncertainty?
    • Questions are set by an expert team who thoroughly analyze the previous trends, themes, current affairs and stats. The element of analysis for the statements are brought-in so that students may learn how to read between the lines
    • ADDITIONAL RESEARCH based questions on NCERTs & Current Affairs



When should you join a Test Series?

You must join test series programs from day one to prepare effectively for CSE-2025. Starting early gives you sufficient time to improve at your own pace – slowly but steadily. It gives you time to revise all tests multiple times and remember lots of relevant content for Prelims as well as for Mains-2025. We have noticed that those who start early and stay consistent will go on to clear this exam quickly (within 1-2 attempts). In the worst case scenario, many of the early starters at least write Mains in their first attempts, sometimes reaching the interview stage as well (if they finish Optional properly before prelims). Those who resort to solving tests in the end – just before prelims – find it difficult to clear this exam as it’s too much to digest at that moment. Moreover most aspirants panic because of the huge amount of materials that pile up by then.
