How the Test is conducted?

The Mock Test Series 2014 comprises 25 Mock Tests with 100 questions each. Each test belonging to the initial 18 Mock Tests has been divided into 4 sectional tests as follows:

  • Part A (25 Questions) : Indian Polity and Constitution
  • Part B: (25 Questions) : Geography, General Science and Technology
  • Part C: (25 Questions): Indian History, Freedom Struggle, Culture and Heritage
  • Part D: (25 Questions) : Indian Economy, Current Events and Current General Studies.

The modus operandi of doing a Test in four parts is as follows:

  • The tests follow a rough syllabus as per our own GS Manual 2014. However, Manual is NOT the only source of the questions. Manual is there for providing you basic information, however, Tests may comprise complex questions from varied sources. We try our best to follow a pattern that is similar to UPSC.
  • A test is uploaded at Target 2014 Programme website and you are informed in your mail about it. Members can attempt the test and download the PDF solution / explanation of every test. The site automatically emails you your score card and our scoring pattern is similar to UPSC. ( awards 2 marks for correct answer, deducts 0.66 for incorrect answer)
  • In case of doubts on questions; members can discuss or post doubts in the comment section. Doubt clearing and discussion among members are integral part of every test. Admin remains active during the discussions and posts comments wherever necessary.
  • Beginning from January 1, 2014, every week, we solve one full test in four parts and have discussions on its questions. Generally, we keep Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for part A, B, C and D of each test every week, however, this is not a rule. As a rough idea, one test has to be finished every week.
  • You can take a sample test on this page to understand how each test would work.
