[ Prelims Crash Course ] NCERT – Foundation Group – 2019


Short Story: – Rajulingam was building a house; He focused on each aspects of building like outer aesthetic, painting, lavish balcony etc. but ignored the foundation part. Mild earthquake came and his home collapsed.

Moral of the story:-

“Never ignore foundation”. One can ignore outer aesthetics but it is imperative to give more attention to the foundation part. NCERTs gives you rock solid foundation. NCERTs are like “Basic Structure” of the constitution, if you compromise with it, the ethos of your preparation/strategy and hence dreams would be compromised. NCERTs are “Keystone Species” of your preparation.

UPSC-CSE is an all India level exams and being a constitutional body it has to keep in mind that all the strata of the society; rich or poor, excluded or included, an aspirant  from Bihar or an aspirant residing in the Karol Bagh’s “posh slums”,  each have equal opportunity and fair chance of cracking this exam. Coaching institute’s monthly magazines are not available in Manipur’s kamjong area but NCERTs are. Pan India presence of the NCERTs makes it the “Gomukh” from where all the “holy” questions asked in the UPSC originates.

 

“One cannot build a great building on a weak foundation”.

              

“If you are done with NCERTs then sky is your limit.” But reading is not enough imbibe them. This program will help candidates in imbibing NCERTS.

An aspirant from Phek district (Nagaland) or an aspirant residing in Karol Bagh (Delhi), which candidate has the fair chance of clearing Prelims ?

One of the beauties of “Digital India Mission” is that it has created a level playing field. Online materials are readily available, regular classes can be viewed but there is a vacuum as far as QUALITY “online test series” for prelims is concerned. We are glad to inform you that we are launching an online test series and in a small way we are contributing in establishing a scenario, where each aspirant has a level playing field.

No matter from where you belong to, be it a village in naxal ridden Dantewada district or ice ridden Dras in J&K, Dreams are same, action might differ.
Can miles truly separate you from your dreams???

Distance is an issue but distance between “You and Delhi” should not become a wall between “You and UPSC”. Your success depends upon how much you are willing to walk. How much you are willing to cover the distance. We are with you in this journey. Chrome IAS will act as a bridge between you and UPSC.
Why price has been kept low? Will it affect the quality of the questions?

Price has been kept intentionally low as the motto of this program is to give a level playing platform to all aspirants at PAN INDIA level and also to spread academy’s name so management has decided to keep this program at “ZERO PROFIT MODULE”.

The distance between dreams and reality is called action. So get up and read. So get up and realize your dream. Get up and conquer.

All the best !

OBJECTIVES OF CHROME IAS TEST SERIES

It is important to understand at the first place, “What should be the motive of Test Series”? If it is to have more and more questions being repeated, then perhaps best would be to take all sources and Compile in a document which at times is so bulky but in reality has very little substance.

Criteria of joining a test series should neither be that whether few of our questions appear directly in the exam nor should it be the objective of an aspirant before joining test series. The important and perhaps the only question is how have you trained your mind to respond to the main and the final event which comes after an exhaustive and well-designed test program clubbed with right feedback. This remains our never-ending endeavor at Chrome IAS Academy to provide the same.

So we believe that enrolling for test series at Chrome IAS Academy is justified as it serves the following purposes:

First is “Training of Mind”, if that is achieved half of the battle is won. And the primary purpose of the test series at Chrome IAS Academy is this.

Second important aspect of our well-crafted program is to act as a “Priming factor”. It has to prepare you for the final event and act as a close rehearsal. Though initially we started off with a Comprehensive Test module, but on demand from aspirants, this year we have come up with a Sectional Plan, so as to keep aspirants in a step wise learning model.

Third purpose of Chrome IAS Mains Examination Test Series is to give you a platform to “Revisit important issues” and also topics that might have skipped your gaze. Also to implement what you have learnt over time and see where you stand as comparison to others.

Fourth and perhaps the most important aspect is the “Right Feedback” which is customized based on the assessment of the aspirant by out experts.

This program is designed for comprehensive revision and preparation for individual Psychology Papers I and II.


Note: Changes in the Test Schedule may be made due to unforeseen circumstances with or without any prior notice. The Institute shall not be responsible for any loss or liability suffered by the students arising out of such adjustments in the Schedule.

On the lines of CS–PFG (Civil Services – Prelims Focus Group), Chrome IAS Academy has decided to start a program which can cater to those aspirants who want to practice Mains Answer Writing simultaneously with their prelims Preparation. CS-MFG (Civil Services – Mains Focus Group) is integrated with CS-PFG syllabus, which would help you to practice answer writing on the same content and syllabus that you cover as a part of CS-PFG.


Program runs Twice a week | 4 Questions per Session (Static Portion from CS-PFG + Current Affairs) | Online/Offline Mode | Content/Pointers on Questions – as a reference | Brief Evaluation | Discussion | Scheduled days – Wednesday and Friday


This serves multiple objectives:

Pre and Mains preparation together.

You practice subjective questions on the same topics which you have covered for prelims.

This program gives you an Insight regarding the practical aspect of Mains – i.e. you get an idea whether you can express yourself in the manner required for Mains Exam.

You get an idea of recollecting aspect of your memory – i.e. what you read for Prelims, is it remaining with you or disappearing as soon as you are done with the PFG test. (Hope you get the implied meaning).

FEATURES OF CHROME IAS TEST SERIES

Limited Enrollments – This is to ensure that due attention is given to the candidates so as to guide them on “How to Improve Answer Writing “, which is often not the case when the number is huge. So, with this aspirants can be personally attended to.

Personal Interaction – Offline + Telephonic – We believe that it’s not enough to evaluate the script, in the current pattern when competition is tough, every stakeholder has to walk an extra mile. We intend to communicate to the aspirant via personal sessions and regularly providing the required inputs to the student. This ensures a gradual understanding of mistakes, without which one cannot improve.

UPSC Pattern – Question Papers are prepared strictly as per the current UPSC pattern.

Stress is on evaluating analytical skills of the aspirant rather than cramming skills.


Geography (Optional) Test Series Features


Each test may have questions from previous test topics in order to keep you aware of previous studies and streamline revisions.

Each test shall also consist with compulsory Map Questions.

Each test shall be strictly UPSC mains pattern (questions configuration and marks allotments).

Solutions of each test will be given before or after discussion of test.

Each test will follow discussion on content and presentation of answers.

Videos Discussions available.

OBJECTIVES OF CHROME IAS TEST SERIES

It is important to understand at the first place, “What should be the motive of Test Series”? If it is to have more and more questions being repeated, then perhaps best would be to take all sources and Compile in a document which at times is so bulky but in reality has very little substance.

Criteria of joining a test series should neither be that whether few of our questions appear directly in the exam nor should it be the objective of an aspirant before joining test series. The important and perhaps the only question is how have you trained your mind to respond to the main and the final event which comes after an exhaustive and well-designed test program clubbed with right feedback. This remains our never-ending endeavor at Chrome IAS Academy to provide the same.

So we believe that enrolling for test series at Chrome IAS Academy is justified as it serves the following purposes:

First is “Training of Mind”, if that is achieved half of the battle is won. And the primary purpose of the test series at Chrome IAS Academy is this.

Second important aspect of our well-crafted program is to act as a “Priming factor”. It has to prepare you for the final event and act as a close rehearsal. Though initially we started off with a Comprehensive Test module, but on demand from aspirants, this year we have come up with a Sectional Plan, so as to keep aspirants in a step wise learning model.

Third purpose of Chrome IAS Main Examination Test Series is to give you a platform to “Revisit important issues” and also topics that might have skipped your gaze. Also to implement what you have learnt over time and see where you stand as comparison to others.

Fourth and perhaps the most important aspect is the “Right Feedback” which is customized based on the assessment of the aspirant by our experts.


Note: Changes in the Test Schedule may be made due to unforeseen circumstances with or without any prior notice. The Institute shall not be responsible for any loss or liability suffered by the students arising out of such adjustments in the Schedule.
