Prime TS, being our legacy product always gets the best from us. Our oldest & most loved offering takes a giant leap this year with 6 key differentiators and 3 ‘exclusive’ features.
We started way back in 2015 with Dr. Vipin Garg (then an AIIMS graduate, member of the founding team @Civilsdaily and now an IAS officer in Gujarat) working hand in hand with us on defining the key features of our Prelims Test Series. Over the years, Prime TS has evolved into a comprehensive learning & assessment companion for aspirants of all stages and preparation style.
Mastering Prelims by Guided yet Flexible Goal Setting
Here’s the question we have always challenged ourselves with:
What good is a test series if all it does is give you a set of 100 questions and backs them up with explanations? As good as the xerox version of the same, right?
Why do most of us find it hard to make a cut at UPSC Prelims (in spite of the abundance of pirated versions of high-quality test series)?
Short Answer: Lack of a goal based mentoring to ensure that you tie up your loose ends in a time-bound manner before going to the next mock
Long Answer: The misconception that reverse engineering (learning theory from solutions) & recursive learning (solving the wrong questions again & again till you get them right) alone is enough for a rewarding mock practice is LETHAL. What you need is a way to correct your fundamental learning errors. You need to analyse what went wrong in the learning process (which can potentially wreck 5 similar questions in the future). You need someone to motivate you and take you back to the basics to correct the identified gaps. Right about that very moment. Not after the whole subject is done. Not after the prelims is lost!
This answer defines the very foundation of our Prime Prelims Test series and here’s how we solve this problem for YOU:
Evidence-based question making: The 3600 questions you face in our mocks have their relevance established in UPSC’s trend analysis. We focus on themes that are important as per UPSC so that we maximise your chances of questions overlap with the actual UPSC Prelims.
Standardising & Tagging those evidence backed questions: Even for the most serious student, judging the quality of any TS is a difficult proposition. To ensure that we hold the end of our bargain, we have introduced 3 layers of tagging:
Difficulty Level Tags: Level 1, 2, 3
Subject/ sub-subject Tags: To ensure that your revision is focussed, we tag questions at deeper layers so that you discover your subject specific blindspots and rectify them
Question Type Tags: Helps you understand the mix of questions and equip yourself in multifaceted question forming. Eg: Consolidation Questions, Comparative Questions, Interactive Questions*
Tikdams for mastering the art of intelligent guesstimates: Think of तिकड़म as a more refined version of the oft-quoted word Jugaad. UPSC is an intelligent test taker. It not only wants to test your comprehension (of syllabus) but also your ability to perform under pressure (& lack of information). How would you solve a “factual” question which gives an illusion of the necessity of “rote-learning”? By ensuring that your core fundamentals are strong and then using the Art of Tikdams to go for the best approximation among the answer choices! We are the only test series which trains you on that!*
SAMANVAYA – 1<>1 Mentoring for Goal Setting: SAMANVAYA adds the much-needed layer of mentor intervention to help you with personalised mini-goals to fortify the defenses in a time-bound manner. It takes help from point #1 & #2 to understand your preparation timeline and then works with you.
- CD’s Monthly Magazines: We walk the extra mile with Monthly Magazine Combo (12 months of all good content at CD). These magazines are a brand in themselves and have been a preference of Toppers for years. The monthly package contains curated information from these 6 areas :
- News + PIB (without oped),
- SC Judgements
- Govt. Schemes in News
- Intl Org + Domestic Org
- Prelims Daily Compilations
Advanced Lecture Series: PRIME TS, being our legacy product gets the best of us. While we leave no stones unturned to build your assessment profile, we also provide you with this crucial & independent module as a part of the package.
ALS is yet another nifty way of revisiting the tricky, factual and sometimes technical aspects of the static syllabus. 60+ hours of videos – most helpful when you advance to the L2 & L3 tests and very rewarding for senior UPSC students.
We have kept our pricing similar to previous year’s. The idea is to make it affordable for every single aspirant without compromising the quality & promise which comes with our name.
It doesn’t matter if you plan to join an offline coaching institute or go on the self-study route, Prime Prelims is an investment worth making to ensure that your learning curve gets shortened and your test-taking skills delight you with a positive result 🙂
