Why choose the CSAT Course? 

Most aspirants put off studying for the CSAT exam, devoting 80% of their preparation time to General Studies. Only later do they realize how important qualifying the CSAT Paper is and that they ought to have given it more attention.

Aspirants should be aware that they just need to achieve 33% of the total marks to qualify the CSAT paper. It's crucial to understand that their performance on the General Studies Paper-I will signify nothing (even if they receive a strong score such as 120/200), if they receive anything less than 33% on the CSAT Paper. As a result, it is imperative to give the CSAT paper adequate priority.

According to our observations, the aspirants encounter the following significant challenges:

  • Aspirants prioritise studying for General Studies Paper I and, during the Prelims exam, fail to qualify the CSAT Paper, which prevents their names from appearing on the Prelims Selection List.
  • Inadequate preparation results from aspirants' poor understanding of the CSAT syllabus.
  • Because it is a qualifying exam, aspirants treat it casually and only realise their misjudgment after it is too late.
  • The skills and shortcuts needed to effectively attempt the paper and qualify the exam aren't entirely possessed by aspirants.
