However, UPSC May not ask a single question or all questions from this mock test series, so please don’t take them as guess papers. We don’t do guess work and we don’t claim any positive impact on your performance during the actual examination.

One thing we claim is quality in the questions, which are framed and delivered to you after lots of study and contemplation. The solution documents provide you crisp and fast revision of the key concepts before the examinations and that is where the utility factor of this test series stands
