UPSC Civil Service Examination, commonly called the IAS exam is often dubbed to be the mother of all exams. There is a reason for that. Statistically speaking the odds are against the aspirant. In this three tiered exam, there are as many as 10 lakh applicants for the coveted jobs. Out of those 10 lakhs, 6 lakh applicants write preliminary exam. Preliminary exam is turning out to be a nerve wracking one from 2015 after CSAT was made qualifying. Usually for every 1 vacancy 12/13 candidates are selected at Prelims stage. So the probability of clearing prelims is just 1 in 31. The second leg of this examination is the mains examination and requires the aspirant to have an extensive writing practice with a holistic, multi dimensional coverage of the issues. Only then, an aspirant shall find himself to be one amongst the 3000 odd students who get a call for the personality test or interview, the last level in this exam.
Taking into account the dynamics of this exam, the curriculum at IAS BRAINS has been planned to reach out to every student. The courses would strategically guide you from ground zero to higher echelons of subject understanding.
At the first stage, the emphasis would be on amalgamating NCERTs and standard textbooks and delivering the basics in a manner required for the exam in the least possible time. We @IAS BRAINS value a student’s time.
This is done by teachers having a pedagogical experience ranging over many years. They understand the different nuances involved in the subject and train the students based on previous year papers and model questions, delivered right after the basics are taught in the class
The second challenge posed by UPSC is the ability to answer subjective questions. At this juncture, we cannot ignore the importance of current affairs as the basics are already built in the foundational classes. To supplement student’s efforts, periodical current affair classes will be held focusing on training the student to think from a multi dimensional holistic perspective.
The next stage is the most crucial aspect of one’s preparation: The test series.
IASBRAINS would be focusing on delivering a formidable UPSC CSE oriented test series prepared by our expert team.
