“One size fits all” is not working anymore. One needs to have a specialized strategy to tackle each section. Keeping this scenario in mind, we have designed the program that focuses on Mains and Prelims. It covers basics to advance of syllabus.

MAIN EXAM APPROACH

In CSE-2015, the good performance in General Studies (Mains) and Essay has aided most of the aspirants in attaining top slot in final list. This in itself proves relevance of scoring high in GS Mains + Essay for clearing the exam and that too with good Rank.

Though Mains exam syllabus is very vast and dynamic, it requires multidimensional approach to handle this. Except the traditional part of the syllabus all topics are interrelated and necessitate extraordinary efforts in not just about getting right information but in its deep analysis.

The program includes Compulsory pre-class readings, class lectures, and tests, answer writing session, essay and one-to-one feedback system.

PRELIMS EXAMINATION APPROACH

Qualifying GS-Prelims on the basis of few strong areas is certainly the thing of the past. For Prelims, General Studies paper was never that much crucial as it is from now on after the change in the scheme of the exam (CSAT being Qualifying). The unpredictability in the proportional composition of various areas renders masters of one area vulnerable i.e. the master of geography may doom if the questions from that area are disproportionately low. What should be done in this challenging scenario? The answer is ” One has to be the jack of all trades and master of few”. No one can afford to ignore any area. We will help you in preparing an approach- unique to each subject area.
