    The trend and pattern of questions asked in UPSC changes each year. Predictability of pattern become difficult thus one should prepare holistically for the examination. This programme has been designed to cater that. Regular Test Series is mere inclined for answer writing only, however, this test series cover both concepts + answer writing practice.

    It will cover tests under different heads:

    • Conceptual Tests: this paper will be conducted topic-wise. Each test will consist of 20 questions, designed to check the conceptual clarity of the aspirant. Under conceptual tests, we have divided each subject under 2-3 heads as for example in Polity and Governance the division is as follows:
      • Values in the Constitution + Other Provisions
      • Executive, Legislature and Judiciary
      • Governance and Organizations
    • Contemporary Issues, GS: this paper will be designed purely on the Major debatable issues and Topics, consisting of 20 questions. It will check the analytical ability of the aspirant.
    • Applied GS Even though few questions on related current affairs will be asked in all the tests. In these tests, there is a central focus on this important area, as the trend in recent years seems to favour current affairs over the routine theoretical questions.
    • Mock Tests:Mock tests will be conducted on the line of UPSC pattern consist of Paper 1, Paper 2, Paper 3 and Paper 4.

    Under the above stated heads, multi-dimensional questions mainly related to core concepts will be asked.

    It is beneficial for both the fresher's and experienced as it will provide broader scope for answer writing practice with respect to both Core Conceptual as well as inter-disciplinary approach of the syllabus.

    It is a major USP of this program as in longer discussion; there will be coverage of concerned syllabus area along with each question. Instead of merely discussing the answer, which is already present in the detailed hints provided, we focus on conceptual clarity and broader discussion on the issue, sometime also covering alternate questions on same topic.

    The workbook has been carefully developed to provide practise questions on all the areas of syllabus and consists of 1200+ questions from GS paper 1, 2, 3, and 4.
