“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.”

       -Oprah Winfrey


Preparing for the UPSC Prelims Exam requires a strategic approach and dedicated effort.

Sometimes even after consistent revisions and solving multiple mock tests some of us are unable to qualify the Preliminary stage of the CSE Examination. And after not seeing our names in the result-list of Prelims 2023, many of us might have been questioning our career choices or even our own self-worth. To help aspirants overcome their doubts and insecurities, Vajiram & Ravi have developed a new test series by the name of “Prelims Assist - A Mentor Guided Test Series Programme for IAS Prelim Exam”.

Having a Mentor in your UPSC journey could benefit you by filling up the following gaps in preparation, especially for the Prelims Exam:

Guidance and Direction

The Vajiram and Ravi exclusive Prelims Assist Programme consists of 30 mock tests. But it also includes a Prelims-Expert who is a Mentor who can provide you with extremely valuable guidance and direction on how to prepare for these mock tests. Also, Mentors can help you understand the exam pattern, the syllabus, and discover the most effective preparation strategies. They can even help you create a personalized study plan tailored to your individual strengths and weaknesses.


Accountability and Discipline

A Mentor can help you stay accountable and disciplined in your Prelims preparation journey especially on days when you feel you haven not performed well enough. They can set milestones and deadlines, track your progress, and ensure that you stay on track with your study plan. Knowing that you have someone monitoring your progress can enhance your commitment and discipline.


Experience and Insights

Mentors bring their firsthand experience of the UPSC journey in order to help you improve your own preparation. Mentors can share insights into the preparation process, exam strategies, and time management techniques. Mentors can provide valuable tips and tricks that they have learned through their own experiences, which can help you avoid common pitfalls and maximize your chances of success.


Motivation and Support

Preparing for the UPSC Civil Services Exam (CSE) can be challenging and demanding. Having a Mentor by your side can provide the motivation and support you need during this journey. Mentors can offer encouragement, share their own success stories and failures, and keep you focused and motivated throughout the preparation period.


Personalized Feedback and Evaluation

A Mentor can assess your progress and provide personalized feedback on your preparation. Mentors can review your mock tests and provide constructive criticism. This feedback can help you identify areas where you need improvement and ultimately guide you in refining your approach.


Network and Resources

Mentors often have a network of fellow aspirants and resources that they can share with you. Mentors also have access to additional resources, such as notes, books, or online study materials that can aid your preparation. Our Prelims Assist programme offers both online and offline mentoring sessions where you can meet your mentor at our institute from Monday to Saturday, anytime between 10am to 6pm.
