Why choose the CSAT Classroom 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.


How will the CSAT Classroom Course help you?

In accordance with the requirements of the UPSC Civil Services Exam, a set of questions from the Civil Services Aptitude Test is made to ascertain an aspirant's level of intelligence, and the results give a complete picture of that aspirant’s aptitude.

The CSAT Classroom Course will benefit students in a variety of ways, including by enabling conceptual clarity, prompt and efficient learning, and instilling necessary skills and strategies.

The Course will assist students in the following ways: 

  • It will assist the students in efficiently and effectively completing the full CSAT curriculum.
  • It assists the students in identifying their strengths and weaknesses.
  • It will assist the students in developing basic and difficult concepts with clarity.
