UPSC Preliminary examination is just the first stage of the Civil Services Examination but not necessarily the simplest! Over the years, Prelims exam has become the biggest and dicey hurdle due to the changing pattern of questions, fierce competition and low-selection ratio.
Albeit a gateway to the Mains examination, Prelims is just a screening phase and this has to be remembered! It is the Mains examination where an aspirant could show his or her depth of understanding of a subject, analytical skills, logical thinking and answer writing skills.
Thus, to tackle the unconventional questions in the Prelims examination, hard work needs to be supplemented with smart work and a well laid down strategy. Keeping this into account, APTI PLUS Academy for Civil Services has come up with Prelims Xpress – a unique course that synthesized smart work, innovation and threadbare analysis of the latest pattern of questions. Prelims Xpress makes you ready for the examination with regular mock tests, multiple revisions of important current affairs topics (weeding out the unnecessary ones) along with the valuable guidance and motivation provided by India’s most renowned mentors.
