Course Approach

UPSC IAS and IFS Mains are subjective exams. Hence, practicing Answer Writing and joining a good Mains Test Series is a recommended course of action. It is definitely important as:

  • Your answer represents you in front of Examiner.
  • The practice saves your time in Exam hall and you don’t get panic.
  • It helps to make the answers relevant, correct, crisp, neat, and within the word limits.

“The more you sweat in peace, the less you bleed in war.” – Norman Schwarzkopf.

However, the fear of upsc and the environment of uncertainty leads to a rat race. Most of the students and the coaching institutes run behind haphazard answer writing, without completing the basics or understanding the relevance of a good answer.

Practice makes a man perfect. However, undirected practice will not take you anywhere. Please remember that, “Only directed and relevant practice makes a man perfect.” 

Here are some issues in Mains Test Series and Traditional Way of Answer Writing

  • Questions are not up to the level of UPSC: Do watch the lectures on sources of questions here.
  • Answer evalutions are not up to the mark.
  • It adds unnecessary 500 pages to your study material (Per test series).
  • It is costly.
  • Free portals for Daily answer writing are time consuming. You will write 5-8 questions daily, for which 99% times questions and content is useless. You are just killing your time rather than getting anything positive. If you do not believe, do check the level of questions, and match those with real UPSC questions.
  • Answer writing becomes burden for you.

Solution: change the approach

  • Mains Answer Writing (Must choose course)
  • There is no daily answer writing, it removes your burden.
  • The practice questions are taken from UPSC PYQs (always up to the mark).
  • UPSC repeats itself (follow synopsis guidance series for this), so this course helps you to understand UPSC trend.
