The way ATP molecules provide energy to every single cell of our body and help us in achieving our day to day tasks, similarly, the ‘Ace the Prelims (ATP) 2021’ Programme will help in providing energy and direction to your prelims preparation and push you beyond the cutoff of Prelims 2021.
For majority of aspirants, the imagination of Prelims exam causes many sleepless nights. We find it quite natural. After all the chances of success is the least in the Prelims exam. With increasing number of participants and shrinking seats in UPSC, cracking the preliminary stage is undoubtedly the most critical aspect of the preparation process. Once you have cracked this stage, the going gets easier after that (at least in terms of the competition).
We have seen many deserving aspirants failing in the Prelims exam. Most of them either underestimate this stage or leave a lot for later stage. You must understand that the objective of UPSC in the Prelims stage is to eliminate aspirants from the competition. The questions are designed in a manner that force aspirants to commit silly mistakes. The paper also contains questions that are supposed to be left unattempted to avoid the debilitating impact of negative marking. It requires really good preparation and positive frame of mind to excel in the Prelims exam.
So, what is the best way to prepare? Well, you know the answer! Practice, practice and practice. Expose yourself to as many questions as possible on a daily basis. Commit mistakes and learn from them. Develop the skills to know which questions to attempt and which ones to leave. Most importantly, maintain a high quality throughout your journey.
We have always focused on quality over quantity. We strongly believe that solving 2000 quality questions with proper explanations can do the trick for you. With an information overload in age of internet, IASbaba’s USP has been the quality of its initiatives, reflected in 60 Days, ILP, PEP, TLP, TRP and so on.
Continuing our good work, we are happy to announce, Ace the Prelims (ATP) 2021. This year, we have endeavoured to make the programme even more comprehensive and detailed by incorporating additional elements into the initiative. The Programme will start from 4th January 2021 (Monday).
** Please Note, this is a FREE initiative targetting UPSC Prelims 2020!
Ace the Prelims (ATP) – 2021 will include
1. Daily Static Quiz (PYQs)
It has been observed over the years that many questions/topics have been repeated in the Prelims exam from the Previous year questions (PYQs). For instance questions on Universal Declaration of Human rights, Papikonda National Park , Welfare State, Gandhi-Irwin Pact, IAEA among others.
Despite emphasising the importance of the PYQs many candidates end up neglecting it. So we thought, inculcating this in the daily routine will not help you in covering the PYQs parallelly but also help you in maximizing your score in UPSC Prelims 2021. Hence we have come up with this unique initiative.
- Here we will cover the Previous Year Questions (2020) Subject wise from Monday to Saturday.

2. Daily CSAT Practice Test
CSAT (Paper 2), has become an achilles heel for many candidates. For the past 3 – 4 years, students have relatively found it easier to score well in GS Paper 1 but they have faltered in CSAT paper. Also since the paper is only qualifying, many students have taken it for granted and their lack of practice has cost them their attempt. Hence, equal attention should be given to CSAT. Considering the need of hour, we have come up with CSAT practice tests.
