Test Series is not separately charged and is a part of the Course
There are 20 Tests for Prelims and 20 Tests for MAIN which there is a scientific annual calendar consisting of Sectional and Comprehensive tests. These tests make the student comfortable with the format of MCQs; acquaint himself/herself with negative marking and how to tackle it; the process of elimination and arrival at the answer; how to avoid foolish mistakes; how not to be scared of the multiples and see through them to get the answer; how many questions to answer; how to eliminate recklessness so that one does not become a victim to negative marking etc.
2000 MCQs make up the Preliminary Test Series, starting in January 2022 and lasting till May or June 2022, depending on the date of the Examination.
The Tests are structured and scheduled in a manner that the student can finish the syllabus with relative ease.
By late April 2022, syllabus will be completed. 45 days from May are exclusively available for revision and consolidation with the help of Best Comprehensive Preliminary Tests in the land.
Main Test Series
Comprehensive Main Test Series - 240 most relevant Questions and Answers (Q&As) with video and Text explanation. The Series begins one week after the Preliminary Examination is over and ends a fortnight before the Main Examination begins.
The Test Series contains the most probable topics- current along with the conventional ones, to give the candidate the best writing practice and model content. The scripts are evaluated by the experienced in house evaluation staff and feedback given. Video explanation strengthens the students’ preparation further. The strike rate of the Test Series in the official exam is quite high.
