GS SCORE announces Integrated Test Series (ITS) for Mains cum Prelims. This is essentially to help the candidates who are willing to write the IAS exam in 2021-22 and want a solution for integrated preparation for General Studies.
Prelims is more to check the breadth of knowledge an aspirant has. Having said that there are two portions static and dynamic. Static portion requires the fundamentals or basic concepts of a topic that are mentioned in the syllabus. To cover this you have to study the NCERTS and some standard text books. Dynamic part requires the material which includes mainly current affairs and the linkage between the static part and the dynamic part.
Mains are entirely different from the Prelims objective examination. Mains are a subjective examination. It gives you scope for analysis rather than mugging up the facts. Hence this Mains examination has to be studied keeping in mind that one needs a holistic approach in depth with capacity to analyze the questions from various dimensions. It also has two parts Static and Dynamic. From Dynamic mainly questions from the current affairs are asked. If you go through last year previous question papers then Dynamic questions are being asked as well as static.

ITS is an integrated Mains cum Prelims test series for UPSC which helps candidates to integrate their tests series for Prelims and Mains.

Apart from it - Discipline. It is a one-year test series plan. So sometimes candidates may feel exhausted in their journey of preparation for the IAS exam and here comes the issues of motivation, consistency and discipline.
