During this program, students are provided with a booklet containing two set of questions, explaining basic concepts on which questions can be asked in the ESE 2020 Mains exam. Once the students practice the questions given in this booklet, the first set of questions is discussed in classroom, whereas the second set of questions is for the students to practice on their own. After successful completion of all the practice questions, a test is conducted. On the basis of the test feedback, students can determine their level of performance.

The second part of CQPP i.e. Conventional Question Practice Test (CQPT) is available in both offline as well as online modes. Under this section of the study program, students are provided with a series of tests. In this program, all the ESE 2020 Mains appearing students learn about new topics while revising the topics that they have learned so far. During each test, questions from certain important topics are asked. After the completion of one or two tests, questions on topics already covered are asked again. Doing so, candidates get to revise the topics along with overall preparation.

In addition, special counseling sessions are conducted on a regular basis to help students write their answers in an effective manner. During these sessions, ESE aspirants are trained to select questions, manage time during the real exam, and build upon their speed and accuracy while solving numerical problems.
