The Test Discussion and Special Classes will be conducted online (we will use Zoom). You will get the details once you register for the Program.
Why This Test Series?
With regard to your optional subject, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) demands that your knowledge of the subject should be to that of “the honours degree level i.e., a level higher than the bachelor’s degree and lower than the masters’ degree”. What UPSC says is loud and clear if you have been observing and analyzing the past PSIR questions of the UPSC CSE. This essentially means that you must thoroughly understand the subject. You should have conceptual clarity and be able to connect the concepts, thoughts, theories, etc.
What this Quality Enrichment Program does is to build the concepts, personally guide you to connect various parts of the syllabus for effective understanding of the subject, and enhance your writing skill to significantly improve your score in the optional subject. This is more than a mere Test Series.

In exceptional times like this moment, those who adapt to the changing environment survive. The civil services preparation is no different. You adapt to the changing mode of preparation, and you at least have a chance. The conventional way of preparation no longer exists, or its resumption will take time. You can wait till things go ‘normal’ or you can accept the ‘new normal’ and start your preparation now. The choice is yours.
