Our top rankers from UPSC 2020

Now, we are launching another batch of Foundation 2022 using the same strategy and plan that got us this incredible result.

80 Students realized their dream of cracking the exam. YOU could be next!

So, what is Foundation 2022, and how will it help you?

  1. It is a complete program for IAS 2022 which includes:
  2. Master Classes -to ensure comprehensive coverage of all the portions of static syllabus along with an in-depth analysis.
  3. Ultimate Assessment Program – to evaluate your level of preparation through various tests- Prelims, Mains, Essay, Samachar Manthan, Decimate Prelims.
  4. A dedicated mentor to guide you through the maze of the UPSC exam.
  5. Exclusive membership to Civilsdaily Community on Habitat.

What is Ultimate Assessment Program 2022

A mentor-guided assessment program to keep you on track at all times and bring in strategic interventions when and where required.

How are we going to approach UPSC IAS 2022?

Broadly, six factors determine your success in cracking this prestigious IAS exam.

The most important being understanding the expectations of UPSC. According to that planning and strategizing. Then Learning – Knowledge and information. Then Analyzing – making linkages, connections, etc. After that, Executing and utilizing information, and Constant course correction – because mistakes are inevitable, need to rectify them asap.

How will it help you?

Through our mentorship-driven and personalized approach, we’re hell-bent on simplifying things for you. Hence, we have come up with a plan that you will instantly connect with you and give you a vibe that yes you can do it!

1. Integrated Approach

Preparation for Prelims and Mains is harmonized. You study a subject, attempt prelims tests, and then attempt mains tests for the same. This leads to solid preparation.

Many institutes out there will not able to present an integrated approach. They offer separate timetables for prelims and mains confusing the students further. That’s not the case with us!

2. Priority-wise Coverage of subjects

We are starting with the most important subjects from the exam perspective first. These are very predictable + have a very high return on investment. They need to be mastered if one has to have a shot at the exam. Polity, Modern History, and Economics. The lower priority ones follow afterward.

3. Logical Division of Topics

Subjects have been divided into topics that logically fit together. Eg. for Polity we ask you to prepare in 2 parts – first, till Central Government and second, from State Government and beyond. This division is not ad-hoc and does not break the flow of your studies.

4. Base and Advanced Sources

We have divided the sources into 2 parts, Base Sources, and Advanced Sources. Base sources are those which you have to master. You should come to advanced sources only when you are thorough with the Base Sources.

All this is under the guidance of a dedicated mentor who will oversee your progress, help you strategize your preparation, plan it and make it measurable, help you analyze and evaluate your preparation; and introduce strategic interventions wherever and whenever required.

Here’s what students have to say about the program:

Do not wait, start on the right track. Civilsdaily has helped 80 aspirants become rankers. You can be next!

Join us on Live Webinar | Zoom Link Inside | How does an aspirant become a Topper? Sajal sir after mentoring 80+ rankers will reveal the secret

UPSC Results are out and I am very proud of working closely with more than 80 Rankers this year. 

One thing I can surely say is that Every Topper is different. There cannot be any 1 single perfect strategy for cracking this exam. Every Topper followed a unique strategy to crack the exam. But all of them had something in common. They avoided certain fundamental mistakes which made their journey smoother and easier.

Every Topper will tell their own Story and Strategy but that particular strategy might work for someone and may not work for someone else. Having closely worked with more than 200 rankers in the last 4 years, I have identified certain common qualities which are shown by almost every ranker I have worked with. These Qualities are not guaranteeing success but certainly, they would improve your chances of cracking the UPSC exam.

I will be conducting a webinar on Saturday 2nd October. Here are the things that you will learn after attending this webinar:

1. Mistakes that have been avoided by the toppers

2. Case Study of various toppers (How did they improve over time )

3. Thorough analysis of Toppers copy 

4. How to utilize the last 240 remaining for the 2022 exam effectively

5. When to begin your prelims preparation?

6. How much time needs to be spent on Optionals and Answer writing

7. Importance of Structure and Presentation in getting high marks in UPSC GS mains

8. Open Q&A session with Participants

Date – 2/10/2021 (Saturday)

Time – 7 p.m.

How did our Toppers pick the right study material? What did they study to get RANKS, and how?

Do you know the one area where UPSC aspirants lose a lot of time and waste a lot of their efforts? It’s finding the right study material to begin their preparation. There are literally thousands of books available in the market and most students end up buying a lot of books without realizing that most of them are not useful.

In fact, an analysis of the last ten years’ papers has revealed that around 50% of the effort in cracking the exam lies in the strategy. And if you know how to pick the right study material from the start, your chances of cracking the exam increases by 50%.

The biggest problem new aspirants face is deciding what to study and what not to study. This wastes their time, and the syllabus starts piling up. So, what can you do to identify the right material as you start your preparation? We have spoken with over 400 rankers from the last 2 years to create the most effective and suitable study material.

In fact, with our strategy, 25 Civilsdaily students had ranks in top 100 and 78+ students secured ranks in 2020. So, how did they pick the right material and what did they study?

  • History – Students often buy and read multiple books like Bipin Chandra, Grover, Sumit Sarkar, Chattopadhyay, etc. But if History is not your optional subject, you really do not need to read each of these books. You need to be highly selective and use the most important source that can help you get marks in the exam. A quick review of the previous year’s question papers would give you an idea about the kinds of question that come from History. Eliminate the idea of reading everything, read only the books that matter.
  • Geography – While NCERTs are a must read for any UPSC aspirant, there are specific books like G.C. Leong, Savindra Singh, Majid Hussain, etc. For example, there are many technical chapters in Savindra Singh like isostasy, drainage patterns, etc. Are they important? No! Should you spend time on them? No. Limit your study material but read the selected ones in detail. Instead, you can simply speak to our mentors and reduce your reading material to only the most important chapters.
  • Art and culture – UPSC asks a lot of questions from Art and Culture but there is no one book that is completely helpful. Often, UPSC asks some questions that you may not find in most of the popular books. For example, if you are reading Nitin Singhania, you do not have to read the chapters on Cinema and Circus. You do not have to read every chapter in every book!
  • Current affairs – Yes, it is important to read the newspaper but how do you identify what to read in a newspaper? Is everything important? No! Should you make a note of everything that comes in the newspaper? No! Try to identify only those topics that will fetch you marks, everything else will waste your time.
  • Environment – Most students read Shankar IAS for environment. But the questions from environment often have Current Affairs element in them. So, while you should read the basic concepts from this book, you will have to tie it with Current Affairs to score.
  • .Science and Tech – Science and tech has a huge syllabus. It contains everything from Biology to Sattelites. But can you read and remember everything? Is it important to know the names of all the human bones? No! It may be important to know India’s space program but do you need to know every sattelite’s details? No! You have to learn to differentiate what is important and what isn’t.
  • Economics – 15 questions were asked from Economics in Prelims 2020. But Economics cannot be completed by reading one book. These questions can only be solved by reading the basic concepts and tying them with current affairs. There is no book that does this perfectly. What will you do? It is best to speak with mentors who know which areas to focus on to get maximum marks. They can help reduce your workload to very specific reading points.
  • Government schemes and plans – You have less than a year to prepare for the exam, can you afford to read all the Yojana, Kurukshetra, etc. before the exam? Should you spend so much time reading topics that may or may not come in the exam? No! Only focused study fetches you marks.

This is an exam of elimination. You can only succeed when you know which study material to eliminate and which to pick. Otherwise, you will have a library of books that are completely useless for your preparation. All your time, money, and efforts will be wasted and you will start feeling overwhelmed by the syllabus.

Remember: Smart work is needed to clear the exam. It’s better to read a particular book many times rather than reading multiple books without revision.

After speaking with over 400 rankers from the last 2 years, our mentors have created the most suitable study material that is selective and highly effective. Speak with our mentors. They will tell you exactly which books and which chapters to read. Don’t waste time, read only the focused material.

Our students secured top ranks in UPSC 2020 [25 in top 100] with a smart strategy, connect with us now to learn how to pick the right study materials for your exam.

  • History – Students often buy and read multiple books like Bipin Chandra, Grover, Sumit Sarkar, Chattopadhyay, etc. But if History is not your optional subject, you really do not need to read each of these books. You need to be highly selective and use the most important source that can help you get marks in the exam. A quick review of the previous year’s question papers would give you an idea about the kinds of question that come from History. Eliminate the idea of reading everything, read only the books that matter.
  • Geography – While NCERTs are a must read for any UPSC aspirant, there are specific books like G.C. Leong, Savindra Singh, Majid Hussain, etc. For example, there are many technical chapters in Savindra Singh like isostasy, drainage patterns, etc. Are they important? No! Should you spend time on them? No. Limit your study material but read the selected ones in detail. Instead, you can simply speak to our mentors and reduce your reading material to only the most important chapters.
  • Art and culture – UPSC asks a lot of questions from Art and Culture but there is no one book that is completely helpful. Often, UPSC asks some questions that you may not find in most of the popular books. For example, if you are reading Nitin Singhania, you do not have to read the chapters on Cinema and Circus. You do not have to read every chapter in every book!
  • Current affairs – Yes, it is important to read the newspaper but how do you identify what to read in a newspaper? Is everything important? No! Should you make a note of everything that comes in the newspaper? No! Try to identify only those topics that will fetch you marks, everything else will waste your time.
  • Environment – Most students read Shankar IAS for environment. But the questions from environment often have Current Affairs element in them. So, while you should read the basic concepts from this book, you will have to tie it with Current Affairs to score.
  • .Science and Tech – Science and tech has a huge syllabus. It contains everything from Biology to Sattelites. But can you read and remember everything? Is it important to know the names of all the human bones? No! It may be important to know India’s space program but do you need to know every sattelite’s details? No! You have to learn to differentiate what is important and what isn’t.
  • Economics – 15 questions were asked from Economics in Prelims 2020. But Economics cannot be completed by reading one book. These questions can only be solved by reading the basic concepts and tying them with current affairs. There is no book that does this perfectly. What will you do? It is best to speak with mentors who know which areas to focus on to get maximum marks. They can help reduce your workload to very specific reading points.
  • Government schemes and plans – You have less than a year to prepare for the exam, can you afford to read all the Yojana, Kurukshetra, etc. before the exam? Should you spend so much time reading topics that may or may not come in the exam? No! Only focused study fetches you marks.

This is an exam of elimination. You can only succeed when you know which study material to eliminate and which to pick. Otherwise, you will have a library of books that are completely useless for your preparation. All your time, money, and efforts will be wasted and you will start feeling overwhelmed by the syllabus.

Remember: Smart work is needed to clear the exam. It’s better to read a particular book many times rather than reading multiple books without revision.

After speaking with over 400 rankers from the last 2 years, our mentors have created the most suitable study material that is selective and highly effective. Speak with our mentors. They will tell you exactly which books and which chapters to read. Don’t waste time, read only the focused material.

Our students secured top ranks in UPSC 2020 [25 in top 100] with a smart strategy, connect with us now to learn how to pick the right study materials for your exam.

How did our Toppers pick the right study material? What did they study to get RANKS, and how?

Do you know the one area where UPSC aspirants lose a lot of time and waste a lot of their efforts? It’s finding the right study material to begin their preparation. There are literally thousands of books available in the market and most students end up buying a lot of books without realizing that most of them are not useful.

In fact, an analysis of the last ten years’ papers has revealed that around 50% of the effort in cracking the exam lies in the strategy. And if you know how to pick the right study material from the start, your chances of cracking the exam increases by 50%.

The biggest problem new aspirants face is deciding what to study and what not to study. This wastes their time, and the syllabus starts piling up. So, what can you do to identify the right material as you start your preparation? We have spoken with over 400 rankers from the last 2 years to create the most effective and suitable study material.

How toppers improved over time? A Case study of 5 toppers

The UPSC results for 2020 are out and 25 out of the top 100 rankers were from Civilsdaily! Not only that, more than 78 (still counting) students from Civilsdaily secured ranks and cracked the exam! As we congratulate our toppers, we would like to share with you how we helped our students succeed.

We will take the example of 4 of our toppers and explain how we helped them. Download and read their answers before they joined Civilsdaily.

They had tried everything but were not able to score high in the exams. From their approach to answering to the body of answers, they faced problems. They faced problems with things like putting proper headings, how to frame dimensions, introductions, conclusions, etc. They never even got the right feedback which could have helped them!

The first thing we did was ‘unlearning.’ We identified the mistakes they were doing, the poor reading practices they had, and all the wrong ideas they had learned from other sources. Before we helped them learn, we helped them unlearn everything that was not practical.

We personalized their study plan – We believe that each student needs a different approach to study. What to study, what not to study? How to pick the right study material? How to make notes for revisions? How to cope with the syllabus? These questions often come into aspirant’s minds.

We assessed each of our students to understand their strengths and weaknesses. Based on their learning abilities, we created unique study plans for each student. We focused on providing only the most relevant study material so that students can save time and revise more. This helped our rankers understand the concept better and improve their retention abilities through regular revisions.

We personalized their timetable – Every student studies at different times. Some may be in college, some may be working professionals, and some may be preparing full-time. We spoke with each aspirant in detail and created a timetable for them that they can follow easily. Our toppers consistently stuck to that plan and were able to cope with the syllabus easily.

Each student got a dedicated mentor – We believe that every aspirant needs a friend, philosopher, and a guide who can help them throughout their preparation. Each of our students gets a mentor who speaks with them, evaluates their progress, guides them, and helps them remain motivated. We provided them with a support structure that understands the students and cares for them.

Download and read how their answers improved after guidance from our mentors.

Our mentors make sure that each student keeps progressing every day. And all our students need to do is stick to the study plan to get the top results.

Our mentorship program is becoming more efficient every day. We had 15 in the top 100 in UPSC 2019. Now, we have 25 in the top 100 in 2020. Our mentorship program is getting results because we care for each of our students and work with them every single day!

Trust in our process and you will succeed, just like our toppers! Register now to speak with our mentors and get the perfect guidance for your exam.

Is the fear of failure making you inconsistent?| Learn how to fight your fears and you will succeed!

I feel scared because I am not able to complete my syllabus!

I am afraid that even with all my efforts, I will fail the exam.

What will happen if I can’t manage my time well?

I don’t know how to plan my studies and I am afraid I will fail!

I feel anxious because there is so much to study but so little time!

Do these thoughts come to your mind often? We have spoken to over 8,000 UPSC aspirants in the last 3 years and most of them said that they were extremely scared of failing! This fear of failure becomes so dominant that they become nervous, anxious, and cannot concentrate on their studies. And this might be true for you too!

Remember: Fear of failure is just in your mind. You can learn how to remove it and YOU CAN remove it!

This is what most of the students said when we talked about their fear of failure:

  1. High competition – Over 10 lakh aspirants prepare for the exam but there are less than 1000 vacancies. Yes, it’s true that the competition is tough but this should not make you scared. Why? Because this exam is more about strategy and handwork than talent. If you have the right strategy and the right guidance, there is no force in the world that can stop you from succeeding!
  2. Vast syllabus – Coping with the syllabus is the scariest thing for the aspirants. There’s just too much to study, isn’t there? But the fact is that the you DON’T have to read everything! It is important that first you learn what to study and what not to study. This reduces your syllabus load by more than 30%. The moment you do this, you already have an advantage over other candidates. You get more time to study less and revise more.
  3. Competing with the top talents – Most aspirants fear that they are competing with IITians, people from IIM, doctors, etc. They fear that they do not have the talent to succeed. But if you analyse the syllabus, read only the most focused study material, and remain consistent, you have every opportunity to crack this exam. Remember, a good plan with execution is the key to success.
  4. Financial pressure – A large number of students feel overwhelmed by the financial pressure. The study materials are expensive, the coaching institutes charge a lot, they have to manage living in different cities to study, etc. But, what if you had a dedicated mentor who provided you only the most important study material and coached you throughout the year? All you need is one mentor who knows how to guide you and fixed study material. Your financial burden will reduce drastically after that.
  5. Time management for working professionals – Working professionals often do not find sufficient time to study. The work pressure, office timings, and other responsibilities often keep them busy. With so little time, they often feel scared that they won’t be able to complete the syllabus. But, this is not something you should be scared of. You just need 3 things: A fixed study plan based on your schedule, a fixed study material that you can revise often, and a guide who keeps you motivated and on track. With just a little help, you can overcome this problem easily.

Every fear you have can be solved. Everything that scares you can be handled. And everything that makes you anxious can be resolved. YOU CAN LEARN to fight your fears and if you feel that you need help and guidance you can speak with our mentors anytime. 

Do not be afraid, don’t fear failing, our mentors can talk to you and teach you how to manage your anxiety. For practical solutions, just fill this form and our mentors will get in touch with you to help you FIGHT your FEAR so that you can become an IAS officer.
