The full-fledged Political Science and also test series courses conducted last year have been highly fetching for people who wrote Mains last year i.e in 2019. We are happy to share with you that the course has been impactful as many questions (not just the regular or conventional ones!) were covered in either the classroom course ,or the mains test series. Test series despite having its own limitations (as it is not possible to cover the entire syllabus) it is a matter of delight that we were still able to target a good number of questions. You should check it yourself by clicking on the link below:

Continuing with the good work and going one step further we are starting an Online batch for Political Science on August 20. The course is designed to repeat the attempt of targeting the questions of next year mains i.e. 2021 along with maximizing the score. We will be trying our maximum to wrap the course up by December along with all tests so that students have ample time for their revision of Optionals and GS preparation from January. So this course will prepare you for both Mains 2020 and 2021.
And before joining a course a student should always be given the opportunity to judge the quality of the course to make an informed decision. Keeping this in mind the first 3 classes are Introductory classes which are FREE and OPEN TO ALL
Registration form is given at the end
KEY FEATURES OF THE COURSE
It is a Full-fledged course comprising classes covering all sections of the subject. It caters to every student even without a background of Political Science. The course includes following components
4 months of classes
Current classes every fortnight
Daily answer writing tests and
Twelve tests spread over 4 months
We are not resorting to mere imitation of the offline classes online. We shall make the best use of the online domain by going live with live chat features, questionnaires, supplementary handouts and integrated slides to say the least!
Dynamic nature of Political Science papers in UPSC has been on an increasing curve in recent times. The recent paper of 2019 testifies this.
Almost 50% of the paper was current based. Questions like Multipolarity, Human Rights and Data, Brahmaputra issue, PMO, National Commission on Women to name a few were current inspired.
The good thing about such questions is it prepares a candidate even for GS questions. But the preparation for such questions in Political Science differs slightly along with the usual overlaps. In political science one needs to link theoretical aspects with the current issues. Making such linkages in answers helps a candidate fetch more marks.
For example, the human rights and big data question can be linked to Frankfurt school and their views on consumerism.
But this does not come in a day. It at first needs a clarity about the concept and then comes the application part.
Understanding this need of students, we are providing 2 current affairs classes to be held every fortnight along with the course.
This way current topics of every month will be covered accordingly. In these classes following things will be taught
There will be 12 tests (8 Sectional and 4 Simulated tests)
Note: Daily Answer Writing Practice through Sprint Test which will be based on portions covered in the previous class. Model answer shall be given at the end of the class.
All the 12 tests will be held through our Mains portal which we have made seamless through integration of Tests, Synopsis and Live test discussions along with an online appointment booking system for resolution of queries. Click on the link to have a look at our dedicated Mains portal.
Tests will be evaluated through a unique part-wise system which will make students capable of self-evaluation. This will improve their judgement in differentiating a good and bad answer.
Test questions will be discussed after evaluation, giving students the standard approach in UPSC to fetch more marks.
Technology mediated appointments for further clarifications of doubts if any.
There will be classes on previous years’ UPSC papers giving the students a perspective on changing trends and the dynamics of the subject which differ from the regular University exams.
