The recipe of success has many ingredients. While all the ingredients are important, some are uncompromisable. They are like what salt is to a recipe. If you forget to add salt, there is a very little chance that anyone is going to like your recipe. Then we also have the 80-20 rule i.e. 80% of your success depends on 20% of your effort put in the right direction. You must have gotten the idea as to what discussion is all about. Yes, we are talking about answer writing.

Your success in the civil services examination depends on a lot of factors. However, writing skill is undoubtedly the most important of them. After all, you receive more than 80% of the final marks obtained in the examination by writing answers in the Mains exam. To say that answer writing is the bread and butter of a UPSC aspirant won’t be an overstatement. Having said this, we also want to emphasise that one can master answer writing skills by following the 80-20 rule. You need to devote 20% of your daily time towards answer writing and that will contribute more than 80% towards your final success in the civil services examination. We have experienced this very closely. Having worked with thousands of students each year in their UPSC journey, we have developed a strong conviction that practicing answer writing is an uncompromisable element of UPSC preparation.

But why are we stating the obvious? Well, just because something is obvious doesn’t mean everyone follows it. It is obviously a good idea to exercise after all! But on an average, how many people actually exercise? You know the answer. As mentors for the civil services examination, it is our obligation to keep reminding you of the obvious. The bottom line is – if you are failing to practice answer writing, you are essentially practicing to fail in the exam.

Our answer writing initiatives have always been the central focus for us since the inception of IASbaba. In terms of importance to aspirants, the Think, Learn and Perform (TLP) initiative is akin to what net practice is to a cricketer. Designed to build your skills incrementally over a period time, TLP has helped thousands of candidates in the past 6 years. Feedback of toppers regarding TLP’s high standard questions and synopsis are testimony to its importance. With TLP, you are as close to the UPSC standard as one can get. What is more important is that TLP is designed to make answer writing an integral part of your preparation journey.

Again, why are we putting so much emphasis on answer writing? The answer is even the most sincere and devoted aspirants are prone to losing momentum, even if they have started well. We have witnessed this phenomenon all these years. Candidates start with a bang. For the initial few days, fired-up candidates put in a lot of effort to answer daily questions and appear in sectional tests. However, after a few weeks, the numbers start to dwindle and the sincerity wanes away. What remains is a handful of aspirants keeping their momentum intact, attempting all the papers. It is no surprise that they are the ones who find their names in the final list. We are telling this to you to demonstrate the strong positive correlation between participation in TLP and success in the civil services examination.

The very fact that only a handful of candidates are able to commit wholeheartedly to the process tells us that it is not easy. Doing the same exercise consistently, days after days, requires perseverance, a virtue not everyone possess. If you are one of those aspirants who is willing to commit to this process and devote time and energy with utmost honesty, then there is no way that success can elude you.

Are you ready to commit? If yes, we are here for you. We present to you the latest versions of TLP, The TLP+ 2021 and TLP+ Full-Length Mock test series programs for Mains 2021. The details of the programmes can be found below.
