We’ve been posed with this question a lot of times. Though the differences are clear, we understand that new students would want some more clarity.
Mains Guidance Program is our UPSC Mains Focused program. Its format is exactly the same as UPSC Mains papers. There are 20 questions to be solved in 2 hours time. A lot of time is spent on perfecting the question paper to ensure maximum questions are repeated in the actual exam and on sample solutions with value-added points. Reviews are more elaborate and more time is spent on each answer copy.
The Daily Answer Writing Program is trying to solve an entirely different problem. Students who believe they need more writing practice before they can attempt an actual full-length test don’t necessarily have many avenues of doing so. You can start attempting a few questions from here and there but you will not get reviews and it will not help you understand what UPSC expects from you. This is where the Daily AWE Program comes to aid.
Questions are uploaded on a daily basis. By attempting these questions, you get to create your own notes on important topics. These notes will help you immensely when your exams are close. At the same time, the reviews will help you build a solid foundation ensuring your preparedness when you attempt UPSC style full-length tests and the actual UPSC paper.
Ultimately, the deciding factor is your level of comfort wrt answer writing. If you have given mains and are confident of your writing ability, then go for the Mains TS. Else Daily AWE should be the starting point for you.
Admissions for both the programs are open.
