1. Why does one have to prepare for mains before prelims in the academy?

60% of syllabus are same between Mains and Prelims. However, the time that a candidate gets to prepare for Mains once Prelims is cleared is not enough. Therefore, for optimizing results, it is advisable to begin with the preparation of Mains to get an edge over others. The time between Prelims and Mains should be used for revision and updating current affairs.

The academy conducts regular weekly tests. The copies are corrected by the faculty-in-charge personally and if required, a one-to-one session is also addressed.
