We’re overjoyed to announce the launch of the Samachar Manthan Batch 2 for IAS 2021 – our flagship program for Current Affairs. It will start from 27th September 2020.
What is Samachar Manthan?
Samachar Manthan is our flagship program designed to help you develop a solid command on your newspaper reading and current affairs analyzing skills. We are also going to focus on imparting skills required to utilize current affairs. Since it builds your core, it is important for both Prelims and Mains. (sample lecture below)
Why Samachar Manthan?
4 stage structure of Lecture-Notes-Testing-Review
Our unique four-stage methodology helps ensure maximum retention and rock-solid preparation. Each component has been meticulously crafted which repeated every week creates a virtuous cycle.
Diversified and Comprehensive coverage
We let news develop over a week, and a team under Sajal Sir daily covers it from various sources which include newspapers (The Hindu, The Indian Express, LiveMint, etc.), magazines (Yojana, Kurukshetra, EPW, Down to Earth), important websites (PIB, PRS, govt ministries, IDSA, etc.).
UPSC is a generalist exam. It’s important to cover more issues than to cover a few, in more depth. Samachar Manthan ensures that fine balance of comprehensive news coverage and detailed discussion on the most important topics.
Videos and Notes
Carefully selected relevant news is analyzed and delivered in a weekly lecture spanning over 3 hours.
You will be getting high quality, well-designed notes. They are detailed with proper categorization of news into the Mains and Prelims category.
Our focus is on conceptual clarity, simplicity, relevance, and making interlinkages between current affairs and basic/static part of the syllabus.
Samachar Manthan will also help you understand how to utilize current affairs in all your Prelims and Mains papers. A part of which is done by tests.
Weekly Mains Test and Evaluation
Because learning is not enough, you must apply. Every week a 10 question UPSC level current affairs test follows with video and notes. The focus here is on Mains answer writing skills and practice.
It’s a skill that is learned, honed, and perfected gradually. And this is why it should be done regularly. Our team of subject experts evaluate your answers and provide you with feedback. Answer enhancement is one of the objectives of this exercise.
