100 Days to Ace Prelims


This year, the UPSC CSE Preliminary Exam is scheduled on 28th May 2023. It can be gauged from the trends of the past years that the questions asked in this exam are becoming very unpredictable and tricky. It includes both General Studies and CSAT papers. The amount of preparation and practice required for this exam is immense. A wise man once said that "Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice" and it seems to describe the prerequisite to crack the prelims exam. It is not only the process of learning but practising those learnings through multiple mock tests that gives you the confidence to crack the preliminary exam comfortably. Keeping these things in mind and with a special focus on Prelims, we at Drishti IAS have planned to start Drishti Mentorship Program (Prelims) from the 6th of February.

About the Program

Drishti Mentorship Program (Prelims) is a 100-day-long exclusive program intended to provide General Studies and CSAT-related support through a Daily Schedule to help students clear the UPSC CSE Prelims exam easily. This support for the Prelims exam will be provided through quick revision classes, regular subject-wise tests, doubt-solving sessions, strategy discussions, assessments of students’ strong and weak areas and appropriate solutions to weak areas, etc. All this support will be provided through a team of mentors and teachers.

What makes this Preliminary exam very tricky and difficult are the kinds of questions and the depth of understanding that they require. Continuous revision and application of whatever the student has learnt during his/her preparatory days are the major ideas this Mentorship Program is focussed upon.
