Why choose the V&R PCM  Comprehensive

General Studies


20 Month


Many aspirants who are engaged in the regular courses at the college or university levels find it difficult to spare time from their daily curriculum. A similar issue is there with the working professionals, especially the ones engaged in corporate jobs, who find it extremely difficult to spare or carve out time during the weekdays.   Additionally, aspirants who are unable to travel to Delhi for preparation face an extra challenge on top of their regular commitments.


These aspirants, though they dream of a career in public service, find it immensely difficult to focus on their preparation in a dedicated and disciplined way. As such, the majority of aspirants fail to achieve their dream job.

They are unable to enrol in a daily class based UPSC CSE preparation Programmes because of their prior commitment to college/university curriculum and job commitment.

As a result, they either stop preparing, put off their UPSC CSE preparation and attempts until after they graduate from college/university, or quit their jobs to go to Delhi to formally prepare.


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


  • Regular dedicated time slot to study
  • Lack a thorough understanding of comprehensive Prelim and Main CSE Syllabus
  • Disjointed and ineffective preparation for Prelim and Main
  • Lack of fundamental knowledge of the essential subjects
  • Lack of discipline and commitment along with motivation

  • Aspirants who reside elsewhere other than Delhi.
