Benefits of Joining General Studies PCM Programme 2025

Many aspirants dream of becoming a civil servant. However, the majority of aspirants get stuck in the Prelims stage for years. Even if they clear the Prelims, they struggle to clear the UPSC Mains Exam for a variety of reasons, including answer writing, time management, the ability to write extensively, switching between topics of various subjects, and answer writing. The competitive nature of the UPSC Civil Services Exam requires, to put it mildly, at least a year of committed and diligent preparation.

According to our observation, most aspirants encounter the following significant challenges:

  • Aspirants lack a thorough understanding of the Prelims and Mains UPSC CSE Syllabus.
  • Aspirants prepare for the Main Exam after clearing the Prelims Test, which results in a disjointed and ineffective preparation.
  • Aspirants possess a limited understanding of crucial subjects.
  • Aspirants exhibit a lack of structure in their preparation methods.
  • Aspirants find it challenging to entirely grasp the vast and evolving UPSC CSE curriculum despite their resolve.
  • The topics discussed in the lectures aren't constantly reviewed and revisited by aspirants.
  • Even individuals with robust educational backgrounds encounter difficulties in effectively addressing and responding to questions.
  • Despite a firm foundation and adept writing skills, aspirants face difficulties in completing all 20 questions within each Mains Paper's allotted time.
