When we started our journey in June 2015, we wanted to transform the way people approached the preparation for civil services. We started with a determination that would enable a person sitting in the remotest corner of the country to have a crack at rank 1 in the civil services examination. For the past 5 years, we have broken many barriers that used to stifle to dreams of thousands of students.
After a break of one year from the offline mode of classes, with new energy and vigour, we are happy to announce the commencement of admissions for Baba’s Foundation Course (Baba’s FC) 2022 – Classroom Programme For Fresher’s (OFFLINE & ONLINE).
Baba’s Foundation Course (Baba’s FC) is a Comprehensive Classroom and Mentorship-Based programme designed to meet all your preparation needs starting from prelims, through mains till interview in an integrated manner!
We at IASbaba have a single guideline before starting any initiative;
“Can we at IASbaba, do the best in comparison to any existing system, can we redefine the way things are delivered”
Yes, if we are doing a classroom programme, then we would want it to be the best!
Most structured and at the same time the one which can bring any ordinary person to UPSC standards in the shortest time.
This was the motto with which we started IASbaba 6 years back. And you can see where IASbaba is today!
IASbaba’s Guidance + Your Dedication = A rank in Top 100!
- Why is the 60 Day Programme so famous and most trusted? The answer is its QUALITY and its relevance to UPSC Questions and standard.
- Integrated Learning Programme (ILP) ONLINE; Today it is the number 1 Online Programme that provides the best guidance for not only Prelims but Mains as well. Quality and affordability, are it’s USP.
- Our Classroom programme, which is the best programme in terms of quality and the largest offline programme in Bangalore is known for imparting individual attention to students. This is the most structured offline classes- starting from classes on day 1 to answer writing in month 3.
- Further, testimony to the above can be seen in following feedback.
Well! The answers to this question are many. But before we answer that question, let us tell you something about the values we believe in. Quality of guidance, sincerity in efforts and innovation in pedagogy are our core values.
The last four years of this programme have attracted students from different parts of the country (from 22 States) and the number of enrolments has been increasing year by year.
This program is meant for those who have completed 0% of syllabus yet determined to succeed in the first attempt itself.
We believe in smart work. Our classes and materials guide aspirants to get the best results with minimal time and effort.
In order to achieve this, we have devised a new way which we call Baba’s 8-Fold Path:
BABA’s EIGHT-FOLD Path to Success
It is a one of its kind programme where Offline classes are supported by Online content. This is the only course where online support is also provided to the students.
For ONLINE students, it refers to the setup where pre-recorded classes along with a live-streaming facility of Doubt Clearing Sessions will be made available.
ONLINE students will have a personalised dashboard, a separate ‘e-learning portal’ wherein you can access the recorded videos, live discussion sessions, value add notes, daily tests (Prelims, Mains) for self-assessment and fortnightly full-length Prelims and Mains Tests, give feedback on the classes, etc. all at one place!
Program is the Most Comprehensive CLASSROOM Integrated Program covering Prelims, Mains, Interview.
It is a complete solution for UPSC Preparation. It covers;
- Classes– All GS Papers (GS1, GS2, GS3, GS4 (Ethics)), Essay, CSAT, and Current Affairs.
- Tests-Prelims & Mains Tests, Mains Tests Evaluation, Synopsis/Model Answers.
- Interview Guidance & Mock Interviews.
Daily targets and plans are given to maintain accountability and discipline. This way work will not pile up and students will be able to maintain their pace uniformly. Sitting at home you will be able to streamline your preparation.
While teaching we always keep in mind that building the basics in every subject is very important. We assume that students are starting with 0% Knowledge and we teach them from the basics to the standards expected from UPSC.
Every subject is preceded by a Strategy or an Approach class where sessions will be in sync with UPSC trend with previous year’s questions analysis and discussing the topics where the probability of asking the question is more.
The UPSC trend analysis and the approach classes will give you clarity on what to read, what not to read, and how to read. This will help you in building a strong foundation in your preparation.
A major portion of the classes will be focused on conceptual understanding and analysing an issue from 360 degree. Interlinking all GS papers and static portions with current affairs forms the core of the program.
It is also a major problem faced by all the students that what and how many sources are to be covered. With our ‘Value Add’ notes (VAN), you will be able to declutter the complexity of UPSC syllabus. The VANs are high-quality specialised reading materials to give you an edge over your competitors. VANs have been designed intelligently to give separate prelims and mains focus pointers to make your understanding seamless and smooth. The notes will be given topic wise for all the topics in syllabus (Prelims and Mains) to ease your preparation.
Studying all day long won’t make any sense if you are not practicing the questions. This is the reason why we have kept weekly tests so that you can understand and track your progress.
No. of Prelims Test = 24 subject wise mini Tests + 27 Current Affairs Tests + 9 Full Revision Tests + 5 Mock Tests + 10 CSAT Tests – A total of 75 Tests
No. of Mains Test = 24 Mains Test + 10 Essay Tests + Daily Mains Answer Writing Practice (150+Questions) (Including Current Affairs).
Please Note that daily test questions will be discussed in the class and will not be evaluated.
Special sessions will be taken by the toppers and experts to improve your personality. Many times, it is seen that during a long process of preparation, students find themselves lost and their motivation drops. These special sessions will keep you motivated and give you the confidence to become a better person
Over all personality development is not possible only by mugging up facts and figures in a classroom. To make studies a fun experience, extra-curricular activities like sports events are organised.
Hand holding till the end – Once you are enrolled in the program, we provide mentorship and support till the interview. Every student will be provided a Dedicated Mentor, who will monitor your progress, give you feedback, motivate and guide you in the Right Path! The students can contact his/her mentor for any difficulties regarding preparation. This will keep an external check and will help in maintaining accountability throughout the preparation process.
Apart from this, we at IASbaba have gone one notch higher and we are providing subject-wise mentorship in Baba’s FC. Students will be able to ask subject wise queries with the teachers even after the respective classes are over.
