Civilsdaily optional group Habitat

(Instructions at the bottom)

Dear students,

We are ecstatic to announce that all UPSC Optional groups are live now on Civilsdaily’s Habitat – our learning platform. (Links for all optional provided below)

Habitat is yet another innovation by Civilsdaily. Another day, another slay! Not boasting really! but we have actually re-invented learning in general and re-structured UPSC preparation in particular.

Preparing for Optionals in the old, outdated manner you can never be ready for the curveballs in the Optional mains exam. Modern problems require ‘postmodern’ solutions.

What is our philosophy?

We have diminished, if not removed the barrier between teacher and student. Co-learning and co-creating knowledge is the need of the hour. The discourses, the vaad-vivaad on every topic, every theory and every issue pushes the boundaries of your thoughts. (Yup, it’s desirable!)

It gets chaotic in the Mains when you are sitting there scratching your head thinking about what surprises the next question might hold for you. For that, you have to get chaotic now,  turn it into constructive chaos, and channelize it.

What all you’ll be getting?

By joining these Optional groups you will be getting exclusive optional groups; mentor and community support; answer writing and discussion; planned syllabus completion and revision; notes, references, and much more.

Exclusive Optional groups on Civilsdaily’s Habitat

You will be assigned to an exclusive group for your optional. Habitat is administered by Civilsdaily’s faculty and in-service officers. Here you’re going to ask doubts; learn and unlearn, and relearn; think and discuss like you never did before.

Every discussion is going to be neatly organized in separate threads. You are going to learn with a highly focussed community of diverse-minded aspirants.

We have more than 25 optional groups.

Sociology optional group on Habitat.
Anthropology optional group on Habitat.

Planned progression

Discussion and syllabus coverage of the Optionals is going to be planned not only for the day but also for a week, with dedicated days for revision, reviews, and restrategizing. It is going to ensure discipline and consistency.

A schedule is shared every week.

Personalized and targetted approach

Not all of you are at the same stage of preparation. Some are just beginning and some have covered the syllabus more than once. Your preparation and approach will also differ.

Modern solutions, they offer one size fits all solutions. We are way past that. Our approach is postmodern! It’s personalized and customized to your individual learning competencies, situation, attitude, and aptitude.

You are going to learn as per your learning competencies, we are just going to make it efficient.

Personalized targets

Answer writing and discussion

This is one of the most important offerings these Optional groups have to offer. Daily questions are shared, from previous year questions to topic-based questions. Answers to them are reviewed and discussed thoroughly. You don’t want to miss these sessions.

Answer writing and discussion

Notes and references

There are so many sources. Wisdom lies in not only selecting the most appropriate sources but also in knowing what you can and should avoid. All the important readings, references, and materials are suggested and shared on a regular basis. Based on the reference material shared, important topics will be pointed out and discussed.

You will be joining a focussed community of learners.
