The Preliminary examination forms the first and most competitive stage of the UPSC examination process. About 97% of all the candidates are held back at this stage only. It is not just a test of your knowledge and depth of preparation, but also of your competence, in terms of time management, accuracy, and presence of mind.
Thus, completing the syllabus and its revision form just one part of your preparation. Another equally vital part is to keep evaluating your preparation at regular intervals.
Many toppers recommend adopting a test-based learning approach especially during the last month before prelims. It refers to an approach wherein you just solve mock-tests and then analyze it well, learn from the questions that you have done wrong. It is a great way to analyze your strengths and weaknesses and also give you an insight into your accuracy and the level of your preparation.
Evaluation of the preparation: This is where a diligently planned test series becomes invaluable. It not only helps you be consistent by providing regular time-bound subject targets but also assists you in analyzing your strong and weak areas.
Analysis of Strength and Weakness: You get a clear reflection of the part of the syllabus you need to focus more on. As both Papers I & II have a negative marking scheme, your prudence and smartness in attempting the right questions and the right number of questions also matter. This too you can ace through the simulation a Test Series offers.
CSAT Preparation: 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' trends, this paper too demands a decent level of preparation. A Test Series nudges you to put in the appropriate level of effort so that you sail through it smoothly.
The Test Series we provide at Career Launcher has been meticulously designed by a team of experts and teachers who have years of experience in analyzing the UPSC examination pattern.
