UPSC Special Courses: Our Approach- Previous year Papers are the Key!

  • As a civil services aspirant, you must know that at least 80-90% of questions are repeated directly or indirectly in UPSC Mains, and at least 60-70% topics are repeated in UPSC Prelims.
  • Many a times, UPSC repeats exactly the same question.
  • Many a times, UPSC rephrases and changes the language, and repeats the same question.
  • Most of the times, UPSC repeats the topics. Examiner explores untouched dimensions, or asks applied questions.
  • Considering these facts, these special courses are designed while considering two parameters: UPSC Syllabus Plus Previous Year Question Papers.
  • Our all classroom lectures, content, and test Series are based on UPSC pattern. 

Our Methodology for content Development

We are a content-based coaching. We spend 6-8 hours for a 20-30 minute lecture to provide you the most comprehensive and Synoptic content for UPSC IAS (Indian Administrative Services) and IFS (Indian Forest Services).

  • The content is made from standard textbooks and reference books, and enriched using internet. This requires years of learning and understanding of the subjects. 
  • The content development team and faculty members are not the UPSC aspirants. For special courses, Krishna sir himself makes the content most of the times.

Difference between current affairs and contemporary issues

Current affairs

Contemporary issues

These are the new Topics in news. eg. Bills, Policies, New Executive
decisions, New International agreements etc.
Once, these appear in news, they become Contemporary topics for many years.
These are the evergreen Topics. In news for many years. eg. Flood, Anti Defection Law,
Anti Microbial Resistance, Border Security, Cyber Security, Food Processing etc.
These consume 10-20% part of your notes. These consume 80-90% part of your notes.
Mostly UPSC frame factual type questions in Mains: eg. Data protection Bill,
15th Finance Commission Recommendations etc. Either you know or don’t know type.
* Very important from Mains point of view as well.
* These topics must be covered considering as part of static syllabus. These are not current Affairs.
Mostly UPSC frame tricky questions from such topics.
