Passcode: 632515

As complicated as it may appear, the UPSC Civil services exam is more about carrying nerves. It’s also about maintaining discipline for the time being and till you succeed. Nor the subjects are esoteric or unheard of. But the character for one to be able to sacrifice the beauty called life and family is rare. Your stay in the game with the zeal to come out winning is very important.

Philosophy aside, but keeping the practical elements in mind, let’s dig a little deeper.  Also, find out what it takes for one to jump that threshold and what our toppers have said. Why have they not been able to clear earlier and what changes have they made to succeed?. These are the most sought-after info and are available on the internet. But from an individual’s perspective, one can not ignore his/her inconclusiveness due to lack of a distinct plan or direction.

Hence, we are coming up with an open session. To counter myths and give some facts which will help you see the light on the other side of the tunnel about the exam.

In this open session, we are going to give a clear insight which is important for one to save time, energy, and effort. Which might otherwise be getting wasted in the wrong direction? This is important because for an individual the first year is the year with maximum energy, expectation from self, go-getter attitude, etc..

We tend to get lost in the sea of advice and sources of studies. To save one from such torrents of information, it’s sometimes said that we need to better know “what not to follow than what to follow”.

Anyways such hypotheses aside, your time in this open session is going to be full of interaction. Some previous year aspirants are also expected to be present. We do expect that all your confusion about the exam will get clear.

Attendees can expect some takeaways too in the form of softcopies relevant to the exam. They will be available to you via email once you have done the registration for the open session.

In this webinar, Ajay Verma, Mentor Head at Civilsdaily will give you an overview:

– What UPSC expects out of you?

– Avoiding Mistakes that can cost you an attempt?

– What to do to master the IAS-Exam?

– How to clear the exam -Step-by-Step learning plan?

– An interactive Q&A session with Current Students at Civilsdaily

– How to clear the exam on the very first attempt?

– Important Civilsdaily softcopies takeaway for exam preparation.

Daily Answer Writing Enhancement (AWE) Program || Enrollments Open for the Month of August

Aspirants for UPSC Examination, 2021 and 2022 are provided with this great opportunity to sharpen their Answer writing skills.

The Daily AWE Program helps you practice 4 answers on a daily basis. If you are a student who wants to simultaneously carry out prelims and mains preparation, then AWE is a perfect course for you.

Let’s keep the momentum going. 

Answer writing practices through Civilsdaily’s Daily AWE program can reduce test anxiety and helps you ace the GS Mains answer writing. And what is a better way to practice for UPSC Mains Examinations than attempting Questions which are the closest to the demands of the UPSC Civil Services Mains Examination? The more you are accustomed to sitting for a period of time, answering questions, and pacing yourself, the more comfortable you will feel when you actually sit down to take the real UPSC Mains examinations yourself.

We are working hard to make the program more featureful, highlight the best answers, show the competency levels of students.

WHAT THE PROGRAM INCLUDES:

  • Daily 4 questions from General studies 1, 2, 3, and 4 will be provided to you. A sample 2 week schedule is available below.
  • A Mentor’s Comment will be available for all answers. This can be used as a guidance tool, but we encourage you to write original answers.
  • You can write your answer on the same day and attached a scanned copy. Within 4 days, a review of your answer will be provided.
  • Also, write the Razor payment ID, when you attached your answer.
  • If you are writing answers late, then please tag the mentor, to let him know about your submission. These answers will be evaluated as per the mentor’s schedule.

SCHEDULE:

Here is the schedule for the first week of August to give you an idea about how we will follow your Syllabus:

Samarth 2022-Webinar by Ajay Verma || How to crack the UPSC IAS exam on the very first attempt? || Register here

Webinar Date: 1st August 2021

Timings: 7 PM

As complicated as it may appear, the UPSC Civil services exam is more about carrying nerves. It’s also about maintaining discipline for the time being and till you succeed. Nor the subjects are esoteric or unheard of. But the character for one to be able to sacrifice the beauty called life and family is rare. Your stay in the game with the zeal to come out winning is very important.

Philosophy aside, but keeping the practical elements in mind, let’s dig a little deeper.  Also, find out what it takes for one to jump that threshold and what our toppers have said. Why have they not been able to clear earlier and what changes have they made to succeed?. These are the most sought-after info and are available on the internet. But from an individual’s perspective, one can not ignore his/her inconclusiveness due to lack of a distinct plan or direction.

Hence, we are coming up with an open session. To counter myths and give some facts which will help you see the light on the other side of the tunnel about the exam.

In this open session, we are going to give a clear insight which is important for one to save time, energy, and effort. Which might otherwise be getting wasted in the wrong direction? This is important because for an individual the first year is the year with maximum energy, expectation from self, go-getter attitude, etc..

We tend to get lost in the sea of advice and sources of studies. To save one from such torrents of information, it’s sometimes said that we need to better know “what not to follow than what to follow”.

Anyways such hypotheses aside, your time in this open session is going to be full of interaction. Some previous year aspirants are also expected to be present. We do expect that all your confusion about the exam will get clear.

Attendees can expect some takeaways too in the form of softcopies relevant to the exam. They will be available to you via email once you have done the registration for the open session.

In this webinar, Ajay Verma, Mentor Head at Civilsdaily will give you an overview:

– What UPSC expects out of you?

– Avoiding Mistakes that can cost you an attempt?

– What to do to master the IAS-Exam?

– How to clear the exam -Step-by-Step learning plan?

– An interactive Q&A session with Current Students at Civilsdaily

– How to clear the exam on the very first attempt?

– Important Civilsdaily softcopies takeaway for exam preparation.

A quick bit about Ajay :

Ajay has firsthand experience with 6 Mains and 3 interviews of UPSC. He has gathered experience working as Mentor-Head at CivilsDaily for the past 3 Yrs and helped many cross the threshold.
