Selection or Elimination?

It is said that at prelims stage UPSC eliminates aspirants but selects at mains and interview.

Some of the notions associated with Prelims:-

  • One wrong bubble can change your destiny.
  • NCERTs and The Hindu are losing their importance.
  • No topper have claimed to know more than 40-50 questions and rest of the questions they solve with elimination technology.
  • Some rely more on accuracy Siddharth Jain Rank 11, 2017 claimed he never used to attempt more than 72-75 but still managed to get score more than 120, While others are more dependent on quantity!
  • There is no need to join any test series, one can take the tests from market and practice at home.

One may agree or disagree with the above notions but, one notion is ultimate truth that UPSC in prelims stage is unpredictable, dicey, incomprehensible, luck dependent (if on the borderline).


3 Category of Students after Prelims:-

Category 1:- Who scores way less than the predicted/rumoured cutoff, what they should do is watch some Netflix series from friends account, relax and prepare for next year.

Category 2:- Borderline guys. What they get is sleepless nights, chills and become religious in the hope to get 3-4 questions right by god’s grace. Even if they qualify but they tend to waste precious 45-50 days between prelims date and its result in anticipation of result and by that time one-third of time is gone.

Category 3:- 5-10 marks more than predicted cutoff. What they get is immense confidence, satisfaction and hope. They enroll themselves in some mains test series. These category students are ahead of their counterparts in the 2nd category.

Gone are those days where 3-4 months were enough to crack prelims, but, in these days where competition is immense along with number of seats are on decline, vague nature of questions this exam has really become a herculean task. (You guys are going to compete with doctors from AIIMS, IIM/IIT graduates, a dedicated guy living in some corner of Bihar whose only dream is to become IAS and also professionals from colleges all over India.

One size fits all approach of prelimswill not work for everyone. Because, challenges are unique for everyone. Ex. Some guys face problems in CSAT while some struggles in History.



What needs to be done:-

1) Be motivated and disciplined:- With punctuality comes discipline. This program offers you the much needed sincerity and punctuality to keep your preparation on right track.

2) Quality as well as quantity:- In this module there will be 4 tests per week which will run for 5 months. There will be approximately more than 70 tests in all , wherein you will learn and touch new areas and also practice the art of ‘MCQ Aptitude’ . Last year we have successfully conducted similar program with the success ratio of more than 35%.  In the last month full length test will be conducted.

3) Have faith in us and believe in yourself:Mutualism works, always!

4) Only request from our side:- Try not to postpone the tests, If you want to be in race don’t get out of the track for a moment. Punctuality is one of the three tenets of this program other two being quality and quantity. Even if you are not prepared to give exams, it will be surely beneficial to you.

[ History Optional ] Mentorship Program – 2020


Batch Starts – 10 june , 2019


Personal Mentorship Program for History Optional.-2020

This module is intended on a Guidance approach where you have access to an interface for interaction with a mentor throughout the due course for preparation of Examination. This module is wonderful amalgamation of Self Study approach with coaching supervision. It also focuses on developing understanding of subject matter amongst every student for making the dream of Rank in the Examination achievable.

The course contains classes, self study approach and guidance for subject and answer writing. Through mentorship program we intend to support our students not only for 4 to 5 months of classes but till the mains 2020. A method of learning will be imparted which will make learning easy and interesting. The Course tries to bring out the quality existing within the student and to model it by mapping it to the demands of UPSC.

We acknowledge the fact that actual success is due to student’s own effort and this is why we call the program Mentorship Program.

 Features :

This program has been specially designed for those students who are fresher or have appeared in the examination once and are going to appear in Mains Examination for the next year.

Complete syllabus prescribed for the Mains Examination will be covered both intensively and extensively during the course. The course has been designed in such a way that even those students, who do not have even basic knowledge of History, will be in a position to write very good answer for any question after the completion of the course and will be able to score 300 plus marks out of the total 500 in the IAS MAINS EXAMINATION with adequate efforts and guidance.

During the course emphasis will be on the development of thorough understanding of the subject matter rather than simply cramming the facts and figures.

Special sessions will be organised for the “Development of Writing Skills” of the students.

Regularly questions will be discussed on the pattern of UPSC Mains Examination to ensure the gradual improvement of the Writing Skills and the Quality of the answers.


General Trend 

Looking at the recent pattern of Civil Services Examination one can come to a conclusion that the Mains Examination is intended to assess the overall intellectual traits and depth of understanding of candidates rather than merely the range of their information and memory. The nature and standard of questions are such that it tests candidate’s general awareness as well as clarity of understanding of basic concepts and its application in terms of Indian Society.

The mains score of Successful Candidates tells us a story. If we analyse their Mains MARKS-SHEET we find that it is the Marks of the OPTIONAL PAPER that is playing decisive role to secure a place in the final list.  If you look at the history of UPSC CSE examination you realize that a candidate’s individual performance can vary on a large number of parameters compared to his competitors with respect to optional or GS. But there can be Optional Subject(s) that do not fetch the marks desired as compared to the effort put in by candidates. The reality that a few Optional Subjects go through a few years of toughness either in the questions asked or the marks awarded cannot be denied.

Another truth concerned with the preparation of mains examination is that apart from the comprehending ability, a candidate should decide on how much of time he/she would be able to spend on studying an Optional Subject. A few candidates might be working while preparing or studying at a university etc, few may be comfortable with some portions of GS due to their background and can give more time to optional. Another set of aspirants have to manage more time for coverage for GS and want to pick optional that they are more comfortable with due to their background or interest. Aspirant should be able to estimate the amount of time required to study the chosen optional subject along with General Studies. Hence time management is an important criteria in choosing optional. Hence, we must understand that selection of right optional subject is a crucial criteria for good performance in mains examination.

Now let us see, Why History as an Optional is helpful to aspirants and how it helps in fetching good ranks.

  • Easy Availability of Study Material
  • Uniformity and Stability in questions
  • Time Management through Coverage of huge chunk of GS Syllabus
  • Thoroughly Engrossing and Insightfull
  • Not much dependence on Current Affairs
  • Availability of Guide
  • Contribution to Essay
  • Interesting to read (No definitions or deep philosophical theories)
  • Easy to prepare with a “Student of School” approach (Doesn’t require vast subject background)
  • Inter-related chronology oriented topics making preparation easy and fun
  • Highest number of Selection till date from this optional.

Approach to History

  • Always begin with basic book such as NCERT.
  • Develop conceptual understanding rather than memorizing and develop views and perspective.
  • Observe events from Historical perspective and develop command to understand the subject with a view of continuity and change which may help you immensely in securing good marks.
  • Make a handy “go to” Note and keep updating it.
  • Develop your own style to revise the content and map it with kind of questions asked.
  • Analyze previous years paper
  • Keep your Historical knowledge updated through revisions and try and apply the content in essay. For that matter you should learn to extract the Historical news and findings from News papers and Magzines.
