Dear Friends,

Firstly thank you for the amazing response we have received on our flagship programme Integrated Learning Programme (ILP) and All India Prelims Test Series (AIPTS)- 2021.

Catering to the huge demand, this year we have made ILP ‘more inclusive’. This year two New features have been added. They are 

  • Mains Evaluation 
  • Mentorship

We are getting many calls/emails with regard to these 2 new features of ILP 2021. So we are writing this post, in order to give you more clarity on how these two new features will work and the huge impact it will have on your preparation and success in UPSC CSE Exam 2021.


So let us explain-

How does Mains Evaluation work?

There are 30 Mains Tests before Prelims and 20 Mains Tests Post Prelims Exam. Total no. of Mains Tests in ILP is 50. The first 30 Tests will have 10 Questions and 20 Tests (Post Prelims) will be full-length tests consisting of 20 Questions. The level of difficulty of the questions will be graded into basic, analytical and out of the box questions. 

Peer Reviews of your answers and Synopsis/Model Answers for every Test will be provided. This is part of our ILP programme 2021(ILP Basic, ILP+, ILP Connect+).

For those students who want their Answer Copies or Essays to be evaluated can get 5 copies or 5 Essay Topics evaluated at a time. It comes in a package of five. 

You can get any 5 Tests/5 Essay Topics Evaluated at 1500 + Tax (18%) along with Mentorship on answer writing and essays. 

Payment link will be provided on ILP Platform once you enrol for the programme as this an additional feature of the programme

Flexibility is given to student’s in terms of choosing the Tests to be evaluated. 


Case 1: You can get GS1, GS3, GS4, and 2 Essay Topics Evaluated along with Mentorship on Answer writing for these Tests/Essays.

Case 2: You can get GS1, GS2, GS3, GS4, and 1 Essay Topic Evaluated along with Mentorship on Answer writing for these Tests/Essays.

Case 3: You can get 5 Essay Topics Evaluated along with Mentorship for these Essays.

Please Note: It comes in a package of five. If you want 10 copies to be evaluated, then you need to buy 2 packages and so on. Also, you can get any 5 Tests evaluated of the total 30 Tests, like Test 1, Test 5, Test 9, Test 10, Test 15. So complete flexibility is given to you interms of choosing the tests to be evaluated.


How does Mentorship work in ILP Connect+ 2021?

A Mentor is not just a teacher, he/she is your friend, philosopher and guide! He/She is a support system which guides you through the journey. Every student of ILP connect+ will be provided a mentor. The students will be able to contact the mentor periodically for any difficulties regarding preparation. This will keep an external check and will help in maintaining accountability throughout the preparation process.

You can connect with your mentors 3 times a month. Basically 10 days once, so that you can get feedback on your performance in the Test and also on what should be your approach in the future.

You can talk to your mentor over a video call. There will be 20 Students who can connect at a time to your respective mentors. This will also act as a Buddy-System’, a small peer group to help and motivate each other for mutual learning.

Even after that, you want to talk to your mentors you can talk to them over phone as per the time scheduled by your mentor. But it is advised to be in touch with your mentors over the video call, according to our experience which is more beneficial.

Please note that topic-specific queries will not be entertained. For test specific doubts a separate portal is made available (test.iasbaba.com) and abhivyakti wherein it acts as a social media of ILP. You can post such queries there.

Mentorship in Local Language:

We have realized the importance of mother tongue in teaching. Hence, from now on guidance at IASbaba will be provided in the mother tongue as well. Even if you are appearing for the exam in English, you can ask your queries in the language you are comfortable with. Also, mentorship in Integrated Learning Program (ILP) – 2021 will also be provided in the same languages.

You can call on the following numbers for your preparation related queries and any queries related to counselling.

Note: All these Mentors can also speak in English.
