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

Other coachings provide do not focus on Previous Year Questions (PYQs) most of the times.

Most of the coachings do not know what is the relevance of the PYQs for UPSC. Instead, they focus on selling Test Series.

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, in MSGP, we explain all the four options, all the statements, and all the key terms mentioned in a question.

We have covered questions from 1979 to 2022 in this course. We challenge you that if you cover all these questions, either by our course, or by self study, noone can stop you in qualifying Prelims. This challenge reflects in the course name - "Mains Seat Guidance Programme"

This will also eliminate the need to solve a lot of tests. We just recommend to solve 4-8 Full Length Tests for coming into the exam mode, just 1-2 months before prelims.

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.
