    do we have to study mains alongwith prelims?

    • Bean Babu

      • Ghåïñt Nāddî

        m wrkng

        • Bean Babu

          I am also working. Before start of ILP mug up syllabus copy and scan all the previous year mains question papers. When you are reading certain topic you will be able to relate that topic WRT mains and get an idea on how the question can be asked. Be committed to ILP schedule and do not ignore your optional at any cost. Follow the same approach for that subject also. ATB.

      • Ghåïñt Nāddî

        also beginner

  • Ani

    There is a mistake in schedule.. August – 31 days.. September – 30 days.. So dates u mentioned should be altered..

  • Bean Babu

    @iasbaba:disqus ; Is reading Hindu optional or compulsory? Haven’t seen mentioning about reading Hindu in the plan. Please clear this. Thanks

    • yuyutsu-curious to fight

      Reading and analyzing The Hindu news paper must for UPSC aspirants,its should be our habit, read only relevent news and editorials.
      At the end of day IASBABA portal provide us daily current affairs in which 2 major topics widely covered on regular basis and important news article’s web links are given, Its free and open for all.
      ILP is different platform(paid).
      ILP will provide BABAPEDIA which contain daily crisp current affairs from relevant news sources like PIB, The Hindu, Indian Express, Live Mint, Economic Times etc.
      Hope I answered your query.

  • arvind

    Thank you

  • Reena Palanisamy

    I ‘ve enrolled for this ILP 2018 program, curious to know when the syllabus will be completed covered for prelims and mains as per your schedule? say 50% or 80 % of the syllabus.


    • Reena

      Full Prelims for sure before Prelims 🙂

      Mains- Around 80%. But then we focus on practical learning also. If something become un-achievable for you guys, we won’t follow that. Will make it integrated in all possible sense.

      • Reena Palanisamy

        Thank you 🙂

  • हर्षल

    babaji one doubt…….
    will the complete syllabus as given by the commission be completed for
    1. gs and csat of prelims
    2. gs 1,2,3,4 for mains in this plan

    means will i have to carve out my own plan only for optional syllabus
    (mine is Anthropology)

    please do clarify

    • Ghåïñt Nāddî

      Mine also… anthropology

  • Menaka RR

    Sir, How about CSAT? There is no clear indication of Csat in ILP-18 as in the case of prelims Test series.Is it not a part of ILP? Kindly clarify.

    • DashBro

      CSAT is not a part of ILP program.

      • Menaka RR

        Oh, Thank you.

  • ranjani

    Is there an option for CSAT in ILP 2018? Does it cover that?

    • Ghåïñt Nāddî

      Later in January

  • Akriti parameswaran

  • Rahul Verma

    anyone with psychology optional aiming for 2018 attempt looking for a serious study group ping at +918800837632 whatsapp

  • Rahul Verma

    I have joined ILP 2018 baba!! Excited after looking at the plan

  • Rahul Verma

    babaji i have one doubt how much time must be devoted to optionals on a daily basis?

    • Rahul

      It is not time dependent. Design your timetable based on whether the subject is completely new to you or not. A fresher needs more time to prepare as initial days are given for grasping the requirement of the subject. Divide time judiciously based on your daily routine. Remember that one should always adjust any time table as per their routine as well

  • prajwal

    Norman Lowe doesn’t cover 18th and 19th century (i.e. American Rev., French Rev. and Industrial Revs.)
    Please change the source given in the plan (or just VAN are enough?)

    • Prajwal

      You can refer to Arjun Dev. VAN will also cover it qualitatively.

      • Rahul Jain

        What is VAN?

        • Anand

          Value Added Notes (VAN) which will be provided by the IASbaba team!

      • Arnab Midya

        It seems that u have not prepared the plan seriously. How can u refer a source that does not cover the specific topic ? This will mislead the fresher .
