This year also we are confident of giving even better prelims test series.  If you score 40-50 marks in the first test, be sure of scoring 100+ in last set of papers – provided you are very serious and regular in giving all tests from day one.

NOTEBoth online and offline Prelims Test Series is ONLY for GS Paper – 1 and doesn’t include CSAT test series.

FREE Mains – 2017 Guidance Program for Offline Prelims Test Series Students:


Here is a Good News. When you subscribe for offline prelims test series, you will get a chance to be in our Mains offline Core Batch for 2017 Mains. Here is how:

  1. In January first week, we will conduct a separate entrance exam for OFFLINE  students and select 20 top scorers. (Interested Online students can appear too)
  2. These 20 students will be selected solely based on merit. However, 50% of them will be girl students. Top ten boy and top ten girls will be taken.
  3. These 20 students will be guided till mains – 2017 for Free of cost
  4. They will be guided on Mains answer writing from January second week to May second week (2017).
  5. In the beginning, classes on Answer writing for GS papers and Essay will be conducted for them and then series of Mains GS tests will be conducted along with Mains Self Study tests.
  6. Copies will be evaluated only till Mid March 2017 with proper feedback. Thereafter all the tests they write will be for practice purpose. 
  7. After prelims, these 20 students will form the core group. In addition to them, we will take in 20 more serious students. 
  8. During Mains offline program, all copies till the end of program will be evaluated for free of cost


In 2016 we selected 20 students (among which 2015 topper Sharanya Ari, Rank – 6 was supposed to be among these 20 students. She was selected in top 20.  But she did not attend any single class as she got selected this year). Beginning was good. But later we could not evaluate their copies at all. But we regularly conducted all mains exams for them which benefited them. We want to be honest with you, therefore we are admitting this fact with you. But, for 2017 it will be more streamlined and professional.
