UPSC 2017: Target 130+ for Prelims Exam

Since the CSAT exam has become just a qualifying exam in 2015, the previous two years have shown how tough cracking prelims can be. The cutoff for GS has jumped to 108 in 2015 and around 115 in 2016. The cutoff for 2017 is now expected to exceed 120, and it can even go as high as 130. So basically, to clear prelims, one will need to target at least 130 this year. And how to achieve that? Should one study as much as he/she can in the remaining time? Unfortunately, while hard work is necessary to clear UPSC, it is not sufficient. What is needed is smart hard work, with a clear well-defined strategy.

With our ‘Target 130+’ program, we provide a highly focused and streamlined practice-driven program, where the whole strategy is centered around a series of practice tests. Here is the timeline of the tests:
