300 Most Important topics for Mains
What is Mains in 300 Topics (M300) for UPSC by Synopsis IAS?
This course covers 300 most important topics for Mains. It provides one-stop solution for all mains specific current affairs.
These 300 Topics will cover Mains specific current affairs which will be linked with static base.
We have very well kept these topics with reference to previous year mains questions. So that our students can learn about the repetitive topics of UPSC and know the structure of a good, to the point answer.
This course will save your time as we are providing you already made structured answers which you just need to understand, practice and revise.
This course covers Contemporary Issues & Current Affairs for Mains, in most comprehensive lucid manner.
These topics will guide you about the structure of a mains answer.
Static portion will be covered as and when it features in news. Once you know the static portion of all the important topics, it is easier to update it with current affairs. If you are thoroughly done with these topics, you can rest assured for your content in Mains.
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.
