PRATHAM (Long-Term Test Series)
UPSC Prelims, the initial stage of the UPSC examination, consists of two papers – General Studies and Civil Services Aptitude Test (CSAT). Both papers are objective in nature and serve as qualifying papers, with marks not contributing to the overall merit.
As the landscape of UPSC exams evolved from 2013 onwards, significant changes in question patterns emerged, challenging students beyond traditional classroom learning. The PRATHAM program addresses these challenges by offering a structured approach to UPSC Prelims preparation.
Challenges and Solution :
Since 2013, the GS paper’s expansive coverage and the increased difficulty of the CSAT paper have posed challenges for aspirants. The PRATHAM program provides a solution through mentorship, dividing the UPSC syllabus into weekly schedules over three stages.
Foundation Stage (6-7 months): In-depth coverage of the syllabus, allowing students to fill gaps in their notes and master subjects from various sources.
Intense Revision Stage (4 months): A more concentrated schedule revisits the entire syllabus, reinforcing exam-oriented revision.
Test Series Stage (3-4 months): Designed to improve speed and accuracy, students participate in a test series, followed by detailed key discussions, counseling, and feedback sessions.
Weekly Schedules and Tests :
Weekly schedules guide students to self-study using provided UPSC-relevant topics, subjects, and recommended sources. On Saturdays, weekly tests consist of 100 Prelims questions aligned with the week’s syllabus and current affairs. Students receive detailed keys, attend a free weekly current affairs class, and participate in explanation sessions (Offline/Online).
Comprehensive Feedback and Counseling :
After test evaluation, one-on-one counseling sessions identify preparation strategy faults, test-taking mistakes, and the student’s elimination method during exams. The PRATHAM program ensures a holistic preparation for the changing UPSC examination pattern.
