Dear Students,

The storm of Prelims 2021 has just settled and you must have entered a phase to evaluate your preparation level while analyzing the changing nature of the Prelims exam. The Commission has stood up to its reputation to be dynamic, challenging, and ever-evolving. This year we have seen the continuation of conceptual questions derived from a rich balance of static and current affairs, there has also been a return of pre-2013 format with assertion/reasoning based questions, questions on personality, and major sports events etc.

Validating our performance with more than 2000+ selections in 2021 through our SFG Test series, we are hereby entering the 4th year of one of our most innovative programs for successfully cracking the Prelims Examination.

The Select Focus Group test series has been designed exactly to the demand of the Prelims examination. In Level 1 we will focus on:

  1. Developing theart of solving prelimsquestionsalong with developing a considerable knowledge base.
  2. Completechapter-wise coverageof standard books and all NCERTs (often neglected by students).
  3. 10Previous Years Questionswill be covered in each test, to accustom the students towards the type of questions asked by UPSC.
  4. Focusing onanalytical questionswith interlinkages of different dimensions.
  5. We will not be covering current affairs at this level, ratherfocus on the static syllabusand get it done comprehensively.

Notice: SFG 2022 - Level 1 Entrance test is now scheduled to be held on 26th Dec. 2021 and the program will start from 10th Jan. 2021.

If the government allows the education institutes to reopen, then the tests will be conducted via both online and offline modes for all our centres. Otherwise, we will be conducting the tests in offline mode in Hyderabad and Patna centres and in online mode for the rest of the country.


The registration for the test can be done byclicking here.

 

SFG – How it works

Select Focus Group (SFG) is a small group of students who are selected by ForumIAS every year for coaching them to clear the UPSC Prelims Examination. Every single candidate selected and retained consistently in the group with Top ranks has cleared the Prelims examination in the past.

100 Students will be selected for the Select Focus Group, through the SFG Entrance Test, who will be required to report at 7AM every day 5 days a week to write an hour-long test based on a pre-planned syllabus, followed by a discussion on the same.

Candidates who are unable to make it to the SFG, will be maintained in a Reserve List, who can also write the tests. Candidates who couldn’t clear the cutoff and are unable to make it into both SFG and RLG can register for the 2nd Entrance Test.

Tests are conducted daily and results are provided within 8 hours of the test with Name and Rank list for candidates to evaluate their daily performance. On the basis of ranks, about 50% of bottom-performing students from SFG are migrated to the reserve list on a weekly basis, and an equal number of students from reserve list (RLG) are moved into SFG.

The decision of the management in this regard is final and not subject to dispute. Please note that this migration is done not keeping in mind the overall merit list but moving away bottom 50% from SFG and picking up an equal number of people from RLG.

Thus those who may be getting more than RLG students, but are bottom 50 in SFG will be moved to RLG.

Every month, the bottom 20% or so non-performing students are eliminated from the program to maintain the quality of competition.

All candidates writing the CSE 2022 are eligible to apply for the entrance test.

This year we introduce some changes as to how we conduct the SFG exam. Please note that changes that we bring are always in response to the examination pattern, the student feedback, and our own learning with respect to how to best enable a serious candidate to clear the exam.

@Neyawn sir, Thank you for the orientation session. Every time I hear/read you, I get shaken and waken up about the reality of clearing this exam. For 2021, I had covered past year papers up till 25 years but this year, I will go as far back as 35 years. One small problem I find is that there aren’t many environment questions in the mix. This is probably because IFoS and other civil services started having a combined entrance only recently. I was wondering how do we cover environment questions from before that time? Did IFoS have a separate preliminary examination? Would it be worthwhile to go through those tests?

@Neyawn Sir struggled to get even 40 but got into RLG somehow. Feeling low because of other's scores and mains preparation is also not that satisfactory (optional is 90% done with notes but not GS 4 and GS 3). Can I risk to continue mains till Jan end or mid Feb or start full-fledged pre from Jan itself alongwith sfg???

Need some direction cz I think I should start for pre from next week itself with strict timetable..

40 is fine . In the offline mode the highest in 60s. But yes, it does say that you ned to focus a bit on Prelims for timley preparation.

Sorry I'm not the group admin but I think the group is full and the member cap will continue to apply. Perhaps make another group? Some other people were also too late to join.

YPT for RLG guys

Got into rlg with 63.33 marks in online mode. Ab sochta hu, kuchh cheating kar hi leni chahiye thi :p But I think, the price is already too low.

I would've preferred offline mode, if this was not a daily affair but a weekly thing. I looked for Patna centre on map, and I was like, Arre maine to apne 3 years yahi gujare hain (Anandpuri). Panchmukhi hanuman mandir used to be my bus stop for school. I think I'd attempt mocks in offline mode, as it takes approx 4 hours to travel there, and can't live there in these uncertain times.

And can we not use unfair means in online mode. We may all be penalized next time too for the unfair acts of some. Marks don't matter as long as we are improving.
