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

Other coachings provide too much content and the content that they provide is very unorganised and not according to the UPSC Syllabus. Other coachings overburden their students with unnecessary garbage which is hard to read even once, so just think how and when the students will revise it?

Organising the content needs 2 Things:

  1. UPSC Syllabus: This will tell you what all topics you need to keep your notes within.
  2. Previous Year Questions: This will tell you the exact topics and even exact questions many times of what will be asked in UPSC. You yourself can predict what UPSC will ask in exam with the help of previous year questions.

We have organised our Previous year Questions in such a way that it is easier to find and predict the weightage of each unit, each topic and even repetitiveness of the paper. Each unit has been organised Topic wise and it took years of research to get through this.

Mostly students do not even know which coaching to join, which books to follow for each section, which sir or ma'am will teach better and how did we fail in Optionals? Even after purchasing some coaching's material, students search for which books to follow to make notes along with coaching. Then why did the students join coaching in the first place when they could not be provided with one stop solution? Coaching is supposed to save our time, and not waste it.

But let us tell you that there are no poor students. Students just need the right approach to crack this exam. 

We advise you to not believe us blindly and look for previous year questions yourself and you will see how UPSC is repeating 90% of its questions every year. You just need to revise and practice those solutions of question papers and those topics again and again.

We proudly claim that our toppers have followed this approach and cracked the exam very easily. Some have even cracked it in first attempt.

  • If you are joining our course: we assure you that you would not need any other material for reference. Just follow this.
  • If you are not joining our course: then we advise you to download previous year questions ebook from our Free Resources Section and practice it yourself.

Please don't fall in the trap of coaching wallas claiming every year UPSC asks new things or you need to study every other thing or join random test series.

  • UPSC repeats itself.
  • You do not need to do PHD in the subject, you need to study with the right and smart approach as in the end we just need to clear our exam. So study wisely.
  • DO NOT Join random test series. Practice previous year questions asked by UPSC again and again and we guarantee you, YOU WILL CLEAR CIVIL SERVICES EXAM.
