Exams Prep Master

Many IAS toppers have advocated for involving old question papers and test series in preparation plans for IAS Exam. Practice papers help candidates to understand the exam pattern, type of questions, weightage of sections/topics in the exam.

  • Students attempting IAS mock tests and preparing through test series have an extra edge in the exam as it makes them habitual of finishing the paper in time.
  • IAS syllabus is very vast and it is pronounced as one of the toughest exams in India. To crack the exam, one should be in the practice of writing lengthy papers with appropriate answers and presentations. Check IAS Syllabus
  • Candidates can take help from IAS sample papers to know the exam pattern and extent of the syllabus that may come in the exam and prepare for that accordingly.
  • With the help of IAS Practice Papers, candidates can get a clear idea about the structure or type of questions asked in the paper.  Check IAS Exam Pattern
