Every year, Sarat Chandra IAS Academy brings high quality UPSC Civils Prelims Test series at a very reasonable price to help UPSC aspirants. Last year, around 67 questions of UPSC prelims are from the Answer discussions of our Test series.

By Civil Services Prelims Exam-2020, UPSC has made it clear that it is taking some unconventional paths. This requires a preparation which has to be unconventional. Traditional preparation and Mock test approach of coaching institutes will not work any more. There is a need to take a new approach for prelims in terms of content, Scheduling and testing patterns

In the race to clear prelims, most aspirants are running behind Test Series programs which are not in sync with UPSC standards. The questions often mislead the preparation and drag the aspirants down to coaching center’s way of preparing, which essentially UPSC is trying to break away from.  

Sarat Chandra IAS Academy has proved that our approach to Civil Services Prelims Exam -2020 is in the UPSC way by aligning our classrooms and tests to the UPSC standards. This has given us brilliant results in terms of 65+ Direct hits in Prelims 2019.                                                

Based on our experience of conducting a successful test series for Prelims 2020 and the lessons we learnt in the process, Sarat Chandra IAS Academy is bringing a Test Series for UPSC CSE (Prelims) 2021. Our Test Series aims to be path-breaking in terms of the quality of questions and content, planning and scheduling of preparation and testing methodology.                                                                            

Our track record of 65+ Direct Hits in CSE 2020 is proof of our commitment to follow the UPSC way.  We dedicate ourselves to be grounded and tethered by the UPSC way in the upcoming test series too. Our test series is focused on consolidation of the concepts linked with current affairs. 

Most test series in the market today are providing half baked synopsis, which is irrelevant for many of the questions. They don’t even explore the underlying and alternate dimensions of a given question. If the concept behind the question is not thoroughly discussed and instilled in the minds of students, the entire process of testing will remain an incomplete endeavor with no sense of holism. 

We acknowledge that Prelims is a major hurdle and even the most experienced candidates face the brunt. If this first hurdle is not cleared, hundreds of hours spent on structuring your Mains answers and building content goes in vain.

UPSC preliminary by its very nature requires a focused study with a firm grip over the concepts along with a thorough awareness of current developments. These days, the aspect of interdisciplinary questions are taking centre stage. This requires a preparation which is by design, able to handle the aforementioned dynamics of UPSC.
