Frequently Asked Questions
What is history of GKToday’s Prelims Test Series?
GKToday has been conducting UPSC Prelims Test Series for a limited audience since 2011. From 2011 till 2019, the prelims test series used to be part of GKToday’s One Year Target programmes conducted as PDF documents and delivered through website. Target Programmes were discontinued in 2019. The Test Series for 2020-2021 was conducted on GKToday’s website (gktoday.in) and was later imported in this app, which anyone can access free of cost in the course archives of this app.
What is provided in Prelims Test Series – 2022?
This test series comprises 2500 questions on Current General Studies and 5000 questions on Static General Studies.
Current General Studies
The 2500 questions on Current General Studies are newly framed questions on terms and topics in news / articles published in media. Despite being current in nature, most of questions somewhere link to general studies on these topics and sometimes appear to be static.
For example, this article will inspire us to frame questions on geographical features such as islands, archipelagos of pacific ocean rather than dragging you into unnecessary geopolitics. GKToday’s questions are laconic (asking you in minimum possible words); clear but difficult to solve and generally trap even the most brilliant upsc aspirants into misreading.
The 2500 questions are framed and uploaded as we go ahead in time. These tests you can take in two modes viz. Daily Test (10 Questions) and Full Tests (100 Questions).
- Daily Test (10 Questions): The daily tests are framed and updated in the course as frequently as possible. Generally, we post 5 tests a week (Monday to Friday) thus making a 50 questions count every week. These Tests are titled from 2022-Test-01 to 2022-Test-250. The questions in these tests are framed keeping UPSC Pattern as well as student psychology (guesswork, elimination method etc.) in mind. These tests have no time limit and can be taken for as many times as you wish to take. Scoring 10+ in a 20 Marks test is a good score and you should practice multiple times to ensure 20/20 marks.
- Full Tests (100 Questions): Every 10 daily tests are combined to create a 100 questions full test in every 4th week or so. This means that 2022-Full Test-01 is a combined test of questions from 2022-Daily Test-01 to 2022-Daily Test-10. The basic objective is to provide a timed (120 minutes) test to be done after every 10 tests for not only revision but also perfect retaining of complex facts in these questions. Since it is expected that students have already seen and solved these questions in daily tests; a score of 200/200 is a must target to be achieved in first attempt in a full test. Kindly note this as an important point. However again, there is no limit on how many times you wish to attempt these tests.
