Gear up for This week’s Samachar Manthan lecture on 28th April Sunday

Dear students,

We understand that the UPSC exam is a generalist exam. It’s more important to cover more issues than to cover one issue in more depth. Hence, through Samachar Manthan, we are trying to maintain a fine balance of covering many important news items and having a detailed discussion on selected topics which require the same. On daily basis a news gets repeated multiple times. Scattered knowledge is not adequately useful when you have to write a 200 words answer within 6-7 minutes. To handle this, Samachar manthan covers such issues in a comprehensive and consolidated manner which is the smart strategy.

Benefits of Samachar Manthan

  • Packed 3 – 3.5 hours Weekly videos will focus on news and its importance from both prelims and mains perspective.
  • This program will also help you understand how to utilize current affairs in all your prelims and mains papers.
  • This ideology makes this course the best utilization of your time.
  • Detailed coverage would mean analysis from all the angles like background or history, features, significance, challenges and way forward. Also, multiple sources like epw, diplomat magazine etc will be referred to in the video lectures.
  • Such an approach will help in writing multidimensional answers.
  • Also which part of the topic is important from mains and prelims perspective will also be discussed.
  • Audio Visual Learning is more impactful than simply glancing through the material. So that you are able to retain information for long also interlink with any new information you get.
  • 4 stage structure of Video->Notes->testing->review to perfect your preparation
  • The sequence of video->Notes->testing->review is the best way to ensure maximum retention and a rock solid preparation. Each component of the program has been meticulously crafted.
