In Essay paper, the sudden transition to all PHILOSOPHICAL topics seems to have created a transitory turbulence. It is similar to the change in Mains pattern in the year 2011. Many candidates who were used to the old pattern had a difficult time re-orienting their strategies.

📍What does it mean?
The element of uncertainty in selection might be prominent for a few years till the new pattern settles down, and candidates get acclimatised to the new pattern. Hitherto, the dominant strategy was to skip philosophical essays. It is not the case now.

📍How to navigate this turbulence?
Treat your essay paper the way you treat your GS paper. The new myth in UPSC preparation - if you prepare well for GS, your Essay paper will be automatically taken care of. The Essay paper, in the new pattern, wants your attention.

📍To the candidates who could not clear Mains
We shall overcome!

You had set ambitious targets for the year 2022. Many of these targets could not achieved.

You are blaming yourself. However, there were factors beyond your control that were equally responsible - unexpected health issues, those family situations you had never imagined, heart-breaks etc.

Now, many precious days would be wasted regretting about those missed targets, those wasted days, those wasted efforts...

Trust me, it is still possible to bounce back. All you need is to discuss the strategy ahead.

Feel free to discuss the strategy ahead @rna1095

While the world parties to welcome 2023, we will try to be with those candidates who could not have a happening 2022.

Always remember, you are not alone in these times of struggle. We are there!

Feel free to discuss and develop a smart strategy @rna1095

Entered the new year while discussing 2023 strategy with aspirants!

Every candidate has a struggle of their own - family issues, no place to study, being used in relationship and what not!
Almost everyday candidate has access to standard sources, strategies, toppers' strategies etc.

So, every candidate should be clearing this exam?

That's unfortunately not the case. Because non-academic factors play a deciding role.

Address them before they cost you a precious attempt. Feel free to discuss @rna1095

These mass layoffs have repercussions for you aspirants.

More candidates will now jump into preparation. Also, those who are in final year of graduation would prefer jumping into preparation rather than trying for campus placements.

IITians are now preferring civil services!

The game begins!
In the name of watching 1-minute shorts, how many hours you waste everyday?

Why not utilise the same on a constructive work?

90 minutes a day!

🌈CSAT paper is the new game changer in Prelims!

Many interview appeared candidates failed to clear the CSAT 2021 and 2022 papers.

In the pursuit of clearing GS paper, which is totally normal, Paper 2 preparation is put on the back burner.

Don't treat CSAT as a qualifying paper!

Keeping this in mind, we are launching an initiative CSATyagraha which will cater to the English Comprehension section of CSAT paper.
