In the last 3 years, there has been an upsurge in Philosophical essays in UPSC Main

Generally, aspirants are comfortable with static (GS-based) essays

But, static essays don’t create much space to stand out and convince the examiner

You don’t have much edge there. 

AIR 404, Archisha has crafted a process for writing and scoring high in Philosophical essays

That’s what she is bringing in his Masterclass

Read what Archisha, AIR 404 has to say about Essay writing skills

“I believe as an aspirant you must ask yourself constantly – ‘What is my edge in this exam?’. Where can I get those extra marks?

I asked the same.

I realized essay writing is where the biggest scope lies. There are many doubts about choosing between – a ‘Static vs Philosophical’ essay. I say an essay is not about knowledge but an expression of your arguments. You don’t need to depend only on UPSC-related subject knowledge. I used ‘Panchatantra stories’ in my essays and scored the highest marks of all my attempts.  

Second, aspirants think, the general rule is to write various dimensions like social, political, economic, etc but they end up writing the same arguments in different dimensions.

You need to learn to find and write relevant anecdotes. You need to craft a thesis and antithesis around the central theme of the essay. You need to enrich your essay by using different combinations of ideas. You need to learn the art of using the right ‘Quotes’ and ending the essay on a high note to charm the examiner.

This is where the majority of aspirants fail.

This is what I am going to talk about in my masterclass and also share my personal, handwritten PDF essay copies over our private Zoom meeting.”
