  • hello, I think if u r just a beginner than u should not join test series at earlier stage, prepare well for 4-5 months than I would suggest you to join test series, many coaching centres start their fresh batches in the month of june and nowadays present their test plan for prelims , this would be the ideal strategy to prepare for upsc, after 4-5 months just join some test plan and do self evaluate that where do u stand. as if I m also a begineer so cannot suggest which of the test series would be the best. good luck.

    can you suggest some good coachings for test series?
  • Decide like this :smile:

    Have you covered the static syllabus ?

    Spectrum, Laxmikant, Eco Static books(whatever you have chosen), Environment by Shankar,NCERT's ,GC Leong,Atlas for Geo, Nitin Singhania for culture


    By "covered" I mean you have read and revised atleast once.

    Have you covered the dynamic syllabus ?

    Here atleast monthly CA magzine must be done.


    If you havent completed the bare minimum as above do not give tests.
    Many websites promote early test taking but you have to cover the bare minimum first.



    One step,One Punch,One Round At a Time.
    How you do anything is how you do everything.

  • Also, dont join a coaching for test series.Rather buy static and dynamic test series from the ORN.Buy them practice at home and learn from your mistakes.Thats what everyone does.

    yes, he has shared all the popular test series questions papers along with the explanations. do you have question paper of ksg test prep?

  • It would be better to join now. And if you have enough money join test series of insightsonindia, vision etc. Also civils360s tests are good. And they offers both prelims and mains for Rs 3500. Their evaluation for mains answers is also good.
