Reconquer Prelims 2020

Imagine you are one among the above contestants struggling to win a 400-meter race. But just when the race was about to over, the finish line gets abruptly extended by 40 meters. Now what?

If you are one among the front runners, then you need to maintain the momentum or else your competitors may overtake you. But if you are one among those lagging behind, you are in luck. If you push your limits in the last leg of the race, you have all the chances of winning the race.

Now UPSC has pushed forward the finish line by 4 months. Again, if you are one among the front runners and are already well prepared for prelims, then you have the privilege of devoting time to Mains preparation. But if you are one among those who are not well prepared for prelims, this extension of date has come in as a blessing in disguise for you.

Some of you must be focussed at the 2021 attempt, some of you must be working professionals who are hard-pressed for time, some of you must very well be veterans with good command over mains but lacking requisite confidence in prelims. Like the race above, you may get ahead of the lot and clear prelims and get a ticket to the mains examination hall.

Our philosophy – Mastering Prelims by guided yet Flexible Goal Setting


1. Evidence-based question making: UPSC level mocks

The 3600 questions you face in our mocks have their relevance established via UPSC’s trend analysis. We focus on themes that are important as per UPSC so that we maximize your chances of questions overlap with the actual UPSC Prelims.


2. Civilsdaily’s Innovation: Tagging

Tagging helps us to ensure balanced coverage of static and current affairs, setting optimum difficulty level, keeping the paper relevance to UPSC syllabus and pattern, and cover all important themes. It’ll help you to analyse and understand the expectation of the UPSC in a better way.

Subject/Sub-subject tagging ensures that a balanced paper is presented to you with an emphasis on important themes. It helps you discover your subject-specific blindspots and rectify them. We disclose our coverage. 

Question Type Tags: Helps you understand the mix of questions and equip yourself in multifaceted question forming. Learn about question types here.

Difficulty Level Tags, Conceptual/Factual Tags: These tags don’t leave you guessing about your weaknesses. If you miss a difficult factual question, it’s absolutely fine. In fact, it’s desirable as you don’t score a negative.
