We realised that a literal “testing” platform that trains a student is missing. Hence we tried
to bridge this gap by introducing a “pehle aap” segment in our Test Series.

“Pehle Aap” segment will have an approach where aspirant is considered first before we
give the test. An aspirant is trained to consider multiple books, sources, magazines, websites
etc. We, at CD, make sure that an aspirant is not overburdened with matter and at the same
time he knows about studies. What’s there in this segment:
• What to read in a chapter?
• How to prioritise studies on the basis of chapters quoted for test?
• What all to study?
• Way to analyse the MCQ format?
• Elimination of certain wrong answer?
We will be giving this segment 7-10 days before every test for you to prepare on the same
lines and not be disappointed with the All India Rankings.
