We are to cover these documents as per the above schedule but still looking at our recent record of delays {of mains documents in comparison to prelims test series which was done as per schedule}  for whatever reasons; the above work ends one month prior to your examination, giving us little scope for sending documents one or two days early or late.

Mains Test Series

We have so far provided three Mains Tests. The tests and their solutions are available here in below table. The next tests we shall upload here as per the given schedule.

      Hello Pritanshu, from August onwards, we have changed the CGS documents to be a fortnightly document covering content in three parts viz. issues (around 15-20), Mains questions and answers (around 60 questions per 15 days) and short notes. This makes sure that we are able to update a current affairs documents every 15th day and not allowing backlogs. Also, the structure is defined this way. After mains 2017, I am willing to create four documents per month on current affairs like this. This table needs to be updated but I had sent a mail to all members regarding this.
