To have an outstanding performance at any competitive event, one needs to stand out from the rest. To stand out, one needs to achieve some degree of excellence. To achieve a degree of excellence, one requires right guidance throughout the journey on a consistent basis. A few sparks of excellence can’t sustain the light of outstanding capabilities. But why do we say this to you? Is civil services such a big deal? Do you really need to have capabilities par excellence to crack this examination? The answer is simple and straight- YES. With each passing year, UPSC is reducing the number of seats. However, the candidates appearing in the civil services examination is steadily growing. The end result is the cut-throat competition. Above-average is never adequate for this examination process. Candidates are working their hearts to make their names appear in the coveted list. But is that the solution? Can hard work alone lead to success in this examination? Well, without undermining the significance of hard work, we want to convey a simple message- in the age of social media and internet revolution, you have to be SMART. Smartness should be understood as a way of life. It can also be understood as one’s ability to think and act out of the box, achieve goals faster and reduce one’s cost to benefit ratio.

We at IASbaba have always believed in the philosophy of smartness. From Day 1, we have come out with initiatives that are smart, efficient and outcome-oriented. This belief has earned us lakhs of followers and their faith and love. The same faith and love have motivated us to come with better planning, better initiatives and more focused strategies to let us help you write your own success story.

The latest in this series of initiatives is our Integrated Prelims+Mains Answer Writing and Mentorship Programme, called the Think, Learn and Perform- Connect (TLP-Connect in short). You are all aware of the quality of TLP which in many ways has become one of our identity brands. The quality of questions, synopsis and feedback in TLP and TLP Plus has been praised by a number of toppers. Rank 1, Rank 4 and many others this year (2018-19) strongly recommended TLP for answer writing practice.


Both Prelims and Mains HIT RATIO: Hitting the bull’s eye year after year:

WHAT DIFFERENTIATES IASBABA FROM OTHERS?

 

Practical Planning to accommodate both GS (Prelims, Mains) and Optional Preparation.

  • Our focus is not on the number of tests but on their quality. Too many tests for Mains will keep you focused on completing the syllabus rather than developing a thought process which is very much essential for building concepts, linking dynamic with static part and tackling analytical nature of the exam – both in Prelims and Mains.
  • Practically speaking, after writing a Test, sufficient time is required for a mentor to evaluate his/her group of students and give you detailed feedback. From a student’s perspective, sufficient time is required to work on feedbacks given by the mentors. There is no point writing tens of tests without investing adequate time on preparation. Moreover, after each test, you need time to recuperate and freshen up before you are ready for the next one. With the quality of questions in TLP, be rest assured that you will be facing the most relevant and standard questions.
  • Our schedule is designed in such a way that the aspirants get ample time to prepare for OPTIONAL subjects and ensure balanced preparation. In a week, there will be 1 Prelims Test and 1 Mains Test, so you get enough time to not only to cover both GS and Optional but also work on the feedback given by your mentors.
  • Some test series available in the market drag the test series till April-May without providing sufficient time for prelims preparation. Out of 4-5 lakhs appearing in the preliminary stage of the exam, only 10-12 thousand will make it to next stage. Due to the increased uncertainty and unpredictability nature, the prelims exam is getting tougher and tougher. Based on the feedback received from toppers, students, subject experts and faculties we believe that 2-3 months of exclusive preparation is required to clear the preliminary stage of examination. So we have planned such that, Mains Tests are over by end of February and the Prelims test continues till the month of May, So you get 3 months exclusive for Prelims Preparation.
  • Immediately after winding up of the Mains Test, our much famed and free initiative 60 days Prelims Programme begins ensuring continuity and integration in the preparation.

 

Why 2 hours duration in 12 Sectional Tests?

  • The beginners would find it difficult to cope up with 3 hours test schedule right from the first test itself, and would often get demotivated. Our tests will train the beginners to acquire a strong foundation and basics. For veterans, it will help them to streamline their preparation, work on their writing speed to complete the paper and maintain consistency. If you are able to complete 14Q in 2 hours, then you can easily complete 20Q in 3 hours.
  • Standard of Questions – Out of 14 Questions in the 2 hour Test, 6Q will be checking your basic knowledge/conceptual understanding and 8Q will be of analytical nature where you have to link static with dynamic. We believe that there is a learning curve in everybody’s preparation and this is a gradual process. It comes with time, preparation and practice!! So after the first 3 cycles of 2 hours of Test (except for Essay to be 3 hours) which would cover entire GS1, GS2, GS3, GS4, you will leap to the next level of comprehensive Test with 3 hours duration.
  • Special Emphasis on Ethics Case Studies and Essay Tests. Apart from the regular GS4 Tests, you will have 2 Tests Exclusively on Ethics Case Studies and in 8 Essay Tests -3 Tests only on Philosophical Essays, 3 only on Theme Based and 2 (Philosophical + Theme Based). You would be writing 2 Essays per Test=16 Essays in total.
  • Each mentor would know you and your strengths closely and customize the feedback and guidance accordingly. Just imagine the impact that a coach would have on your journey!
