Pros & Cons of Our 2016 Prelims Test Series Based on Your Feedback

Merits of the Simulator Tests Deficiencies in the Simulator Tests
Questions Quality closest to that with the actual Examination as far as possible Question Paper on the tougher side
Beneficial for Experienced Candidates/Interview Appeared/ Allied Services Candidates May not have been helpful to unprepared Candidates or absolute beginners
Beneficial for Candidates who have already prepared well
Helpful in development of problem solving skills and elimination techniques required for the exam
Not so helpful in in developing Knowledge Base
Crisp Solutions providing little information beyond what is asked in the question
Answers not suitable for Revision

We will be tackling deficiencies mentioned above in our restructured & redesigned Test Series for Prelims 2017 without compromising on the quality of questions offered.

Goal/Objectives of the Prelims 2017 Test Series

The Goal of the Prelims 2017 is to take you through the full journey of preparation from a fresher to a successful candidate.
The Prelims 2017 Test Series has a unique three tier Testing system that ensures
You build your basics well
You revise the syllabus at least three times
The Civil Services Preliminary Examination, unlike other Government Sector Exams does not have questions merely stating facts and choosing the correct options.
The Prelims Paper requires problem both

  • Knowledge base ( KB), as well as
  • Problem solving skills, eliminating wrong options, decision making skills on what questions to leave and what to solve.

While Knowledge Base can be developed by reading standard books, the latter – problem solving skills, elimination skills and decision making comes with practising previous years papers and solving high quality simulator Test papers.
