Hello everyone,


Let me tell you my beautiful story which began with IASbaba two months back. Just like you all, I am a regular visitor at IASbaba. Having participated in most of their initiatives (if not all) I have immensely benefitted from this new born giant. Being someone who attempted every daily test posted on IASbaba I thought of doing an elementary analysis in my post-prelims craziness. I wanted to check exactly how much I gained from these daily tests in sheer numbers/marks (at the end of the day that’s what matters, we can all agree to that).

And to my surprise, I could easily locate more than 40 questions from here. I had a feeling that many questions were familiar but couldn’t locate until did some labor 🙂 I wonder how and why Baba was silent on this 🙂

This is just to pay back my thankfulness and gratitude for the work Baba has done in such a less time and with amazing precision. As an ardent follower I explored everything they provided from strategy to tests to notes.

Here’s my analysis for current and future aspirants: An astonishing 40 direct hits out of 100 were from IASbaba’s 60 day program (there could be more or lil less , this is only my analysis based on what I could locate. I strongly feel there are many more left)


Please Note: Why am I doing this?

Because I am so touched and influenced by their genuine quality work which has benefited me immensely. I am sure there are thousands out there who share the same feeling.

When someone so qualitative and selfless can touch your life, I thought this was the least that can be done.

Jai ho baba!

When coachingwallah’s and other websites can CLAIM only with few key words and boast about it, Our Babaji deserves a standing ovation for hitting it so closely and to everyone’s surprise just in 2 months. Hats off Baba. I feel most of you would agree with me on this!

I can’t even wait for your Mains preparation anymore. We want it right now:)

You should decide your resources and follow it religiously. Online sources are immense and you are Free to use everything you want 🙂
