A:Yes! Except for the “Attempt Later” option, the FREE Pre-PG e-Tests is similar to the experience you will get with the paid version.
Q: Do I have to take Pre-PG e-Tests once a week or at particular times?
A: No. Unlike other Mock Exams available today, where you have to travel to a centre and take a Mock Exam weekly or monthly… and wait for the results that take time, Pre-PG e-Tests gives you the flexibility to take a Mock Exam even everyday (or maybe you have the stamina, even two in a day!) We suggest you make it a habit to attempt one Mock Exam per day till your actual PG Entrance Exam; thereby making the actual exam, seem like an everyday affair!

A: Pre-PG e.Tests will stop working. Don’t worry! The answers that you had marked and the time elapsed until then will get stored. When you reconnect and return, you will be able to resume from where you got cut off.
Q: Upon subscribing, how long will I be able to access my Pre-PG e-Tests account?
A: Once you are a paid subscriber to a Pre-PG e-Tests product, your account will be available to you for limited number of months, depending on the package you take, during which time you have to take all your tests and do your learning, like reading explanatory notes, etc. You can only attempt the tests once. You can choose the “Attempt Later” option (not available on the FREE Test) to discontinue and resume later. But once your time for each test is over, you can only get access to your result sheets and explanatory answers to the attempted tests.
Q: Can we avail the course material in printed format, so as to revise the lessons?
A: Yes, you can take prints of the material.
Q: Is there any difference in the materials in 100 hrs and 300 hrs packages. For Eg. If I Take 100 hrs, after I use 100 hrs it will be locked or unsubscribed?
A: No, there is no difference. Total lecture duration of course is 185 hrs spread across 292 lessons of all subjects. We are offering 300 hrs so that you can listen to some lessons more than once and also there would be 10 MCQs for every lesson for practice. So you would require more than 250 hrs to complete the course.
Q: If I subscribe for the 300 hrs package, will I be able to get some free tests along with the package or should I subscribe separately for it?
A: No. You need to subscribe Tests separately, but in the Pre-PG e-Tutor every lecture is accompanied with 10 MCQs related to the lecture. So overall you would be answering more than 3000 MCQs for practice.
Q: If I complete 300 hours of reading the material in four months, can I still access the course?
A: No, you cannot access the course. Course will expire when you use 300 hours or 1 year from subscription, which ever is earlier.
Q: Can I read any subject, as I wish. If I want to read two or more subjects at a time, or any topic, is it possible?
A: Yes, you can read any subject and as many subjects you want.
