FEATURES OF CHROME IAS TEST SERIES

Limited Enrollments – This is to ensure that due attention is given to the candidates so as to guide them on “How to Improve Answer Writing “, which is often not the case when the number is huge. So, with this aspirants can be personally attended to.

Personal Interaction – Offline + Telephonic – We believe that it’s not enough to evaluate the script, in the current pattern when competition is tough, every stakeholder has to walk an extra mile. We intend to communicate to the aspirant via personal sessions and regularly providing the required inputs to the student. This ensures a gradual understanding of mistakes, without which one cannot improve.

UPSC Pattern – Question Papers are prepared strictly as per the current UPSC pattern.

Stress is on evaluating analytical skills of the aspirant rather than cramming skills.


Objectives of PSIR Test Series

  1. A rigorous revision of the syllabus by designing an exhaustive set of tests, and presenting the topics in syllabus with all possible dimensions.

  3. Post – test discussions involving an all-encompassing discourse on the syllabus and questions, the focus would be to help the student achieve coherence and comfort in handling the complete subject. Personal sessions with each aspirant.
  4. Enhanced answer writing skills.

OBJECTIVES OF CHROME IAS TEST SERIES

It is important to understand at the first place, “What should be the motive of Test Series”? If it is to have more and more questions being repeated, then perhaps best would be to take all sources and Compile in a document which at times is so bulky but in reality has very little substance.

Criteria of joining a test series should neither be that whether few of our questions appear directly in the exam (Preliminary+Mains) nor should it be the objective of an aspirant before joining test series. The important and perhaps the only question is how have you trained your mind to respond to the main and the final event which comes after an exhaustive and well-designed test program clubbed with right feedback. This remains our never-ending endeavor at Chrome IAS Academy to provide the same.

So we believe that enrolling for test series at Chrome IAS Academy is justified as it serves the following purposes:

First is “Training of Mind”, if that is achieved half of the battle is won. And the primary purpose of the test series at Chrome IAS Academy is this.

Second important aspect of our well-crafted program is to act as a “Priming factor”. It has to prepare you for the final event and act as a close rehearsal. Though initially we started off with a Comprehensive Test module, but on demand from aspirants, this year we have come up with a Sectional Plan, so as to keep aspirants in a step wise learning model.

Third purpose of Chrome IAS Main Examination Test Series is to give you a platform to “Revisit important issues” and also topics that might have skipped your gaze. Also to implement what you have learnt over time and see where you stand as comparison to others.

Fourth and perhaps the most important aspect is the “Right Feedback” which is customized based on the assessment of the aspirant by out experts.

This program is designed for comprehensive revision and preparation for individual GS Papers (I, II, III and IV).


Note: Changes in the Test Schedule may be made due to unforeseen circumstances with or without any prior notice. The Institute shall not be responsible for any loss or liability suffered by the students arising out of such adjustments in the Schedule.
