TWO Test Series:

Unique Idea to Address Concerns and Demands of All Aspirants

This year we are launching TWO test series keeping in mind TWO broad category of students who are preparing for UPSC civil services exam. One category of aspirants are Freshers who haven’t taken any coaching yet but want to start preparation either in college or from home. Another category of aspirants is one who have completed either coaching or have finished basics on their own. This category also includes aspirants who have given attempts in civil services exam.

Both category aspirants need absolute discipline in their preparation if you have to clear prelims, or the all stages of this exam. Our timetables, which are so carefully prepared after consulting hundreds of aspirants across the country (through their valuable feedback), will provide you a roadmap to both simplify and bring discipline in your exam preparation.

For Freshers or beginners:

Freshers need to complete basic books first. Hence one of these two test series provides you a timetable that focuses on TEXTBOOKS first. First 11 tests will be based on NCERT books (NEW ones). Later tests will be based on STANDARD texts. In the final leg you will get full length tests (this year we have increased their numbers to give you extra practice). In between there will be revision tests too. Your preparation will start from very basics and will end up with multiple revisions. Ultimately, as our toppers have told us (you), this test series will EMPOWER and ENABLE you to clear the first hurdle of this exam with confidence. Be aware that Prelims is getting tougher. Buying tests from photocopy shop in the end and trying to memorise facts will DEFINITELY ruin your attempt.

What you need is GENERAL AWARENESS that you can get only by studying standard texts and applying the gained knowledge in a test like situation repeatedly – which our test series platform gives you in a very user friendly way. 

In addition, we will be giving you 10 mains questions with every test along with synopsis. This is to help you study these texts not only from prelims point of view, but also from mains point of view. These are practice questions for you to write answers at home. 

Even when you join coaching, joining this test series helps you complete standard texts aligning with the coaching schedule. Most coaching institutions don’t let you read standard texts. Neither they give enough tests from beginning. It’s better to be smart and have an integrated approach from the beginning. This saves many years of your youth. You may read our last year post on test series to understand how and why you should use Insights test series.

For Aspirants who have completed coaching or have studied basics:

We have designed test series SUBJECT-WISE or Module – wise. The timetable has kept in mind the integrated nature of preparation (prelims + mains) that is required to ace this exam within one or two attempts. 

This test series is designed in such a way that it helps you not only make notes for all topics systematically, but will also help you revise three times entire syllabus by March 2020. Keeping in mind diverse set of aspirants within this category – such as those who have finished coaching, those who have written Mains, those who are skipping 2019 attempt to focus on 2020 attempt – this test series is designed to give you enough time to study every nook and corner of UPSC civil services prelims and Mains General studies syllabus. 

When you are planning for 2020 attempt, you must take care to not to waste time. Aspirants tend to waste lots of time when they think that they have lots of months with them. Joining our test series makes sure that you won’t waste your time. 

 

Why you MUST join InsightsIAS test series?

The screenshots in the beginning of this post might have already convinced you. But then, based on our experience of interacting with thousands of students, we must tell you why you should not think twice to join our test series.

As explained above our test series will definitely gives direction and discipline. In addition, this gives you much needed seriousness and confidence. To clear this exam you need more confidence. This confidence comes through systematic completion of syllabus and showing gradual improvement in retention of information. And then applying this knowledge to score better in tests. Without confidence, you can not clear this exam. 

Imagine this: You may decide to buy pirated copies of tests from photocopy shop and solve them once you complete all books. In reality, you will not solve these tests. Firstly because you haven’t invested much, secondly you tend to postpone because you don’t feel the competition.

In our test series, you will be competing with thousands of serious students across the country (we had 15000+ subscribers last year). The ranking you get gives you a clear picture about where you stand compared to your co-aspirants. Moreover, section-wsie analysis of performance in each test helps you work more on your weak areas.

We have a team that carefully researches and frames questions in order to match UPSC standards and meet aspirant’s expectations. We are very sure that those who have seriously given or giving 2019 tests will clear Prelims 2019. As we are fond of saying – InsightsIAS tests truly EMPOWER aspirants to be the best they could be to beat their competitors.

There is another strong reason why you must subscribe. That is – your encouragement helps us keep this website (www.insightsonindia.com) running free of cost.
