Being just a qualifying paper students tend to take CSAT for granted and hence allocating very little time for its preparation. But over multiple years now it has been noticed that a good number of students comfortably clearing cut off score in GS failing are unable to achieve qualifying marks in CSAT. Thus, CSAT becomes an important aspect of Civil Services Prelims Examination.
With our eight years of experience in Competitive Examination, we have seen many fall to the problem of (a) taking a subject for granted, and (b) not working on known weak areas. We believe that (a) in a competition taking any area for granted is suicidal and (b) CSAT must be actively prepared for if you have not solved aptitude subjects in a while. Also, as is the nature of Aptitude Test, while practice is what will help you through, a teacher handholding you hugely reduce the time taken to prepare and secure yourself a place in Mains. This is especially true if you have a known problem with CSAT.
