What is Prelims Foundation by Synopsis IAS?

It is a combo course. For General Course Details, Faculty Details, No of Pages, Validity, Demo Videos and Content, Rating and Reviews, and other Details for a Course, please click on the following course links:

This course includes all the static portion of UPSC Syllabus covering the summary of all the standard books like NCERTs, Laxmikanth, Spectrum, Economy books, Tamil Nadu board books, maps, court judgements, gc leong etc.

The best part about our course is that since it is the summary of all standard books, means we have extracted just the relevant information from all books and compiled it together. Therefore, our study material is just approx.. 1/3rd of the market notes.

Difference between Prelims Crash course and Prelims Classroom is:

Validity: Prelims Crash course comes with 1 batch validity (one month after Prelims 2023), while Prelims Classroom remains valid for till next Prelims.

  • Prelims Crash course (Prelims 2.0): Valid till Prelims 2023. 
  • Prelims Classroom 2023 validity: Valid till Prelims 2024. (Includes Prelims 2023)
  • Prelims Classroom 2024 validity: Valid till Prelims 2025. (Includes Prelims 2023, Prelims 2024)
  • Prelims Classroom 2025 validity: Valid till Prelims 2026. (Includes Prelims 2023, Prelims 2024, Prelims 2025)

Course Content: Also, Prelims crash course does not include special courses, while Prelims Classroom comes with all special courses like, 20-20 and 50-50 course (which includes 70 most important topics for Prelims), Mains Seat Guarantee Programme (which includes Past 40 years solved papers), CSAT, PT360 and monthly current affairs as well.

Why you should choose Prelims Crash Course: Prelims Crash Course is suggested for those who have less time and wants immediate coverage of only static, CSAT and current affairs.

Why you should choose Prelims Classroom: While Prelims Classroom is suggested for those who have time as it focuses on holistic coverage specially after a student is done with his static and current affairs part, that is when the real game and real approach to crack Prelims comes into picture with the help of special courses designed keeping in mind previous year repetitive topics and previous year questions solutions.

How is this course different from similar courses by other coachings?

Other coachings provide too much content.

Still, a number of topics are left out. Students are forced to follow two or three coachings, along with a newspaper like The Hindu, Indian Express, Dainik Jagran etc.

Ultimately, students tend to confuse and get stressed. A number of students even do not appear in the exam due to the phobia of Current Affairs, PT type compilations, The Hindu, Indian Express.

At Synopsis IAS, we provide to the point and Synoptic Content.

No other Study Material / Book needed: For making content, we start with NCERTs, and refer newspapers, standard text books, reference books, research papers and journals. We update the content with current affairs regularly. After making content for any topic, we also refer to the other major institutes notes to ensure that we don't miss any important point or topic.

Still, the content is available in approx 1/3rd pages as compared to the other institutes.

Krishna sir is the content head at Synopsis IAS. The course content is thoroughly reviewed by him. He has gained 7+ years of experience in Research and Development while in services at DAE, GOI.


We do not waste unnecessary time in selling coupons for courses, marketing, and promotions. The faculties just teach, teach and teach, and do not beat around the bush. The lecture duration is short – If other institute has covered the same topic in 1 hour, we cover that just in approx. 15-20 minutes.


We teach in easy Hinglish language. The content slides for the course are in Hinglish (One line English, One line Hindi).

The course is available in English and Hindi Mediums. The Study Material is in Three Languages: First file is in English, Second file is in Hindi, Third file is Bilingual (one line English, one line Hindi). The Lectures are delivered in Hinglish.


When it comes to guidance, noone can even come closer to Synopsis IAS. The Synopsis IAS institute is based on the vision of a person, who left services just to teach and provide genuine Guidance.

There are Strategy Videos by Krishna Sir: He has discussed the strategy to prepare for UPSC in cover in a realistic way in his most popular Guidance Series.


The course is available for a very less price compared to any other online or offline coaching.
