The Preliminary examination forms the first and the most competitive stage of the the UPSC examination process.
This is not just the test of your knowledge and depth of preparation but also of your competence in terms of timeliness, accuracy and presence of mind. Thus, completing the syllabus and its revision forms just one part of the preparation. The another equally vital part is to keep evaluating your preparation at regular intervals.
This is the reason why a diligently planned test series becomes inevitable. Test series not only keeps you consistent by giving regular time bound subject targets, but also assists you to analyse your strong and weak areas.
You get a clear reflection of the part of the syllabus that you need to focus more. As both papers 1 and 2 have negative marking scheme, your prudence and smartness in attempting the right questions and right number of questions also matter. This also you can ace through the simulation provided by the test series.
Paper II of Prelims, that is, CSAT, owing to the 33% threshold for qualification, is often taken lightly by the students. However, considering the recent few years' trend, this paper too demands a decent level of preparation. It’s always a smarter move to first check you competency in CSAT before taking it too lightly or too seriously. Test series, thus, nudges you to put in the appropriate level of effort so that you sail through this smoothly.
The test series that we provide at CL has been meticulously designed by a team of experts and teachers who have years of experience in the UPSC examination pattern analysis.
The fundamental motive is to inculcate the habit of regular practice in the right direction among the students. The questions set by our team would demand both conceptual clarity and analytical ability from the students. This will not only help in getting an edge in preliminary examination, but will also be building the bedrock for mains preparation.
Thus an integrated approach is taken care of with appropriate weight to all the static subjects and current affairs. The entire schedule of Prelims Test Series has been crafted with an aim to let the student go through the consistent cycle of prepare-revise-evaluate so the he/she feels ready and confident for the final performance on the 'The' Day!!
