 Goal/Objectives of the Prelims 2018 Test Series

The Goal of the Prelims 2018 is to take you through the full journey of preparation from a fresher to a successful candidate.

The Prelims 2018 Test Series has a unique four tier Testing system that ensures

  • You build your basics well.
  • You revise your basics.
  • You revise the syllabus at least four times
  • You atleast practise 4 CSAT papers ruling any chance of mishap

 The iterations will be

  • Build your basics through mini-tests.
  • Revise your basics through full test after a series of mini tests on a topic.
  • Revise syllabus again through subject-wise full test.
  • Revise syllabus again and be exam ready with 8 GS simulator tests.

The Civil Services Preliminary Examination, unlike other Government Sector Exams does not have questions merely stating facts and choosing the correct options.

CLASSROOM / Offline Test Series

As long as the exam is offline, it is most recommended to take the examination in a classroom. On student’s request, we have set up a ForumIAS Test Centre in Old Rajinder Nagar.

You can write the Tests at our Test Centre on all seven days.

Our Test Centre is Located at –

  • NEW DELHI: Shop #6, 3rd Floor, Above Next IAS, Bada Bazar, Old Rajinder Nagar, New Delhi.
  • GURGAON: 24 BVM, Basement, Chanda Estate, DLF City Phase 2, 5 Mins Walk from Sikandarpur Metro Station.

 The Test Centre also offers the benefits of interacting with ForumIAS Team Members where you can have a discussion of your test performance and preparation strategy.

It is recommended that you join as early as possible, since we met a lot of students who approached us in July for Preparation for Prelims 2017.

As much as we wanted, we could not help them simply because precious time was lost by them.

Note: Offline Students can write Tests online as well, but Online Students cannot write Tests at the Test Centre. In case you want to write Tests at the Centre, please choose the Offline Course Only.

Migration from online to offline will be applicable only on the FULL payment of the difference between online and classroom fees without applicability of any early bird offer.
