  • The choice of magazines, journals, newspapers also plays a vital role in the performance of the aspirants .Keeping this in mind there are weekly lectures to discuss the major cover stories ,News, Personalities and Issues in question.
  • We constantly monitor the performance of our students through surprise tests and answer writing practice
  • All major sources like Economic Survey, Agriculture Survey, ARC Report, India Year Book and Editorials are incorporated in the class.
