Who can Join the Prelims Course for UPSC 2023
Since the Prelims Course is designed to focus completely on getting the students past the first stage of the exam, it is meant primarily for students who are already well prepared for the Mains exam and are looking for a crash-course style boost for their Prelims exam. Therefore it can be said that the Prelims course can be taken up by students who are repeaters (having given the Main exam in the past) and are just finding the prelims stage rather difficult to get through, or, have at least prepared for the Main exam previously.
- It is very important to take up the course only after a significant amount of your Mains preparation is completed so that you do not put yourself in a difficult position to clear the exam in its entirety.
- In the UPSC exam, failing at any stage would simply mean that you have to start from square one and apply for the Prelims exam for the next attempt. Hence, if you are not well prepared for the Mains exam then you will find yourself in a difficult situation even after clearing the Prelims due to the lack of time that is required to prepare for the Mains exam.
- This will push you into a cycle of constant disappointment as, once you clear the Prelims and give your Mains without sufficient preparation, you will once again find yourself at the same level of inadequate preparedness for the next attempt during the month of December when the Mains results are announced.
- In order to avoid getting trapped in such vicious cycle it is highly advisable that students do not take up the Prelims course just for the sake of clearing Prelims without preparing well enough for Mains.
