Details of Test Series.

What all things you need to practice for UPSC Prelims Test series 2022?

The first and most important thing is to complete your syllabus. Understand each and every topic with clarity. Once you are done with the syllabus, you have to evaluate yourself.
Now, you have to see where you stand, this is most important thing.Bus aappadhejaarhe ho, par when you are trying to solve questions, you are not able to solve any. Aapkopta hi ni ki aap jo padhrhe ho, wo approach sahi h ya ni. (You are just reading books, but you are not able to solve questions).
Any person who starts UPSC preparation should first have command on basic questions and then gradually you will learn how to solve an advanced level, not actually advance, it's UPSC level standard questions.

Now the most important question comes from where you will practice?

Lots of Test Series are available in the market, so which one we should practice? How many Test Series we should practice? How we should select Tet Series?  Sit relaxed. We are going to answer every such question.
There are many categories of students who are giving exam, but we will majorlycategorize students into two:

  1. Students with weak grasping power, moving every small step takes time (takes more time as usual)
  2. Those who are smart, intelligent, who grasp things easily.

But it is important to note here, the procedure of preparation is the same for both categories of students. For example, every student has to read basics, then standard books, prepare for the optional subjects, prepare ethics, practice answer writing, etc.

But then, when it comes to PRACTICE QUESTIONS, things change. Students start finding it difficult to solve questions. Some students are not even able to solve basic questions while others get stuck with other standard questions.

It is important to understand that just reading books without practice will take you nowhere. You won’t get any experience, confidence, and courage to face UPSC questions. You will always try to skip questions. And the result is, you FAIL IN PRELIMS ITSELF.

Now why students should join Goaltide Prelims Test Series, not others?

We find two major problems with Test Series available in markets:

  1. Most of the questions are outdated. No relevancein today’s scenario.
  2. There is huge gap between available Test Series and UPSC asked questions. You will never be able to prepare yourself with the help of such questions.

But why most of the students practice them?

  1. It’s a brand now. Students are bound to choose them.
  2. Huge advertisements. They influence students.
  3. Large number of Tests. It attracts students.
  4. Last, but not the least, they have not heard of any good ones, For example, Goaltide Prelims Test Series.

So, where these Test Papers lack? What are the consequences? Read carefully.

  • It will never ever prepare you for the test, you are going to take in examination hall.
  • You can never gauge your performance based on the scores of these Tests (solving irrelevant questions makes no sense)
  • Before examination, you have to deal with all irrelevant topics in these papers while revising.

So, now tell us what makes Goaltide different form other Test Series?

A basic principle we follow, we don’t go for any speculation of any pattern for upcoming exam. For us, every subject, every topic is important.
We are not conducting these test series to make you “feel good”. We want to demotivate you, trouble you, grill you in every question you solve. Believe us, if we don’t do this, you are not going to improve or learn the required thing. Aapwahi basic questions, easy questions main atkerahoge aur khushiyanmanaterhoge(You will continue enjoying solving easy and basic simple questions).
Six important things which we will provide you:

  • Our questions will not only try to fail you at every step but also give you the best learning from it. We believeyou must fail many times before the exam, that’s the best learning from any Test Series.
  • A simple principle you have to follow: Practice less but quality questions. Asking a large number of tests will definitely contain outdated and irrelevant questions. What we will provide you in 43 Tests (50 questions), you will never learn such concepts from anywhere. Concepts and clarity are very important to understand this exam.
  • People say 24*7, but we actually provide doubt service for around 20 hours. We respond to every query. If it is simple, we reply through message or else we call to explain big doubts. The test series which don’t provide quality explanations and carry your doubts, just discard them. They are of no use.
  • Those students who find it difficult to solve directly UPSC based paper, we have kept 20 Tests of 50 questions each of NCERTS to generate a grip. It will give you the confidence to solve advanced questions.
  • A sense of CONFIDENCE. The best review we get from our students are: Sir,the paper was tough but our confidence was well enough to handle such questions. And they all cleared Prelims.

Confidence is the key to clearing the Prelims exam.If you gain confidence before exam, you will never be defeated. And you will get enough confidence once you solve all our Papers.

  • Complete coverage of all important current affairs from June 2021 to May 2022. Nothing important will be left.Apart from all basic questions (which you can easily solve), we will train you with all difficult questions, all small concepts, and approaches.

What is the structure of our Test Series?

This year we have three sections: NCERTS, GS Papers and CSAT papers (NCERT IS THE NEW ADDITION)
For NCERTS, we have 20 papers of 50 questions each.

So, total you will be having =
2000 (Daily Quiz) + 2550 (GS TEST SERIES) = 4550 UPSC GS PRELIMS 2021 QUESTIONS.

Believe me, this is more than enough for you to qualify UPSC Prelims Exam 2022…….

Once you enroll for Test Series, what all things will be provided?

  1. You will be able to give online tests.
  2. You will be provided with two PDFs. One of question paperand the other with Questions and Solutions both.
  3. A veryfriendly interface platform for Test Series. You will get all the details (correct, incorrect, accuracy, score, rank) after each test.
  4. Daily Quiz and Current Affairs compilations
  5. We can assure you no one will give you such an effective Test Series at this price which is so affordable.
  6. A Doubts section- Mail, WhatsApp, Telegram, Call.

Why this Pattern?

If you carefully observe the structure, you will find 35 Test Papers of 50 Marks + 8 Papers of 100 Marks.
When we are taking tests based on specific subjects, our aim is that for every question, you use your skills, knowledge, connectivity. Your concept for that particular topic is clear. If you can solve this paper and score more than average marks, you are on the right path. Believe us. We formulate each paper in such a way.
Putting 100 such questions on a single day, you won’t be able to put the same energy continuously for 100 questions (if it is full length paper, it can be possible). And believe me, what you see in markets, every Test Paper of 100 marks, you will hardly find 25-30 good questions, because their aim is QUANTITY, NOT QUALITY. We will ask you 50, but its impact on your performance will be much greater than Paper consisting of 100 Questions.
Secondly, when your exam is near, it is good to revise good, important and tricky questions rather than going through simple and irrelevant questions. 50 Questions based Test Paper will be easy to revise, will give you confidence. 100 Questions Paper, neither you revise, nor you get time in the end to see again.
Thirdly, if students are relatively new in the preparation, it is very difficult for them to practice 100 questions in one go. It takes time for them to settleand that’s why here, they will get the best option to survive here and win the battle.

So, why we are taking Full Length Test Papers?

After Practicing 35 Test Papers, you will gain momentum, confidence and it’s time to move one step ahead. Now we will have 8 Test Papers.
It will be Full length Comprehensive Test Series. This will be your Real test. After solving 35 Papers (50 marks) and 600 Current Affairs Questions, you are in the position to attain a UPSC Standard Paper.
What is the best way to cover problem in UPSC Prelims? LEARN TO FACE UNCERTAINITY. How to face uncertainty? Appear for the test with whatever preparation you have. Don’t bother to complete syllabus and take the Test. This is not your school exam. You need syllabus before each paper.But still keeping in mind all categories of students, we are defining syllabus for few important subjects.
