We hear a lot of rankers talking of building the General Studies “base” using NCERTs. But since we were so good in school, we almost know what Bhimbetka Caves are and how Ashoka shifted to non-violence after the Kalinga war. So, we ditch the NCERTs and start with our Standard Books.

This is the problem with most UPSC Beginners.

We have this preconceived notion that questions asked in UPSC are generally from relatively unknown, difficult and standard sources – and that while NCERTs is good to read, they are not questions worthy.

But what if we tell you that NCERTs are actually the “key to success”. And they are as questions worthy as it can get.

Look at the following question:

What can France learn from the Indian Constitution’s approach to secularism? [150 Words] [10 Marks] [UPSC Mains 2019 PYQ – GS 2]

If you had read this chapter thoroughly, you could have easily answered this question.

NCERT Class XI – Political Theory – Chapter 8 (Secularism)

Snippet from NCERT XI (Political Theory) – Secularism – Discussing Secularism in France vs India

Again, look at the following question:

Judicial Legislation is antithetical to the doctrine of separation of powers as envisaged in the Indian Constitution. In this context justify the filing of a large number of public interest petitions praying for issuing guidelines to executive authorities. [UPSC Mains 2019 PYQ – GS 2]

This Chapter from NCERT is the base of the above question. If you went thoroughly with your NCERT Notes, you could have easily written a solid answer.

NCERT Class XI – Indian Constitution at Work – Judiciary

Snippet from NCERT XI – Indian Constitution at Work (Judiciary) discussing about Separation & Balance of Power using checks and balances

What are we trying to imply?

The ideal starting point for any UPSC aspirant is NCERTs. They serve as a basic juncture where your understanding of the fundamentals for solving MCQs and analytical skills for long answer writing unite.

Almost all UPSC aspirants start with NCERTs but do they all clear IAS?

The answer is ‘No’.

Though everyone reads NCERTs, 99% of them don’t even know how to utilize NCERTs for Answer Writing. 99% don’t know how to make notes of NCERTs. And 99% of them will not be making it to the final list. How to end up being that successful 1%?

Ranadheer Sir is mentoring a fixed number of students this year, and he believes he is on the way to create magic AGAIN, like he did with UAP Student Animesh.

This is what he did with one of his students. He asked him to make notes from the NCERT Books, and attempt the Samachar Manthan Tests.

And the results are here to be seen.

Within 20 days, he is getting 5/10 in Samachar Manthan Tests.

He is now writing precise answers, with value-added content, lucid language, and rich examples from the NCERT Notes Making.

Since these books are aspirants’ weakest area, you should make them your strength. Follow this session to learn How to Start your Mains Answer Writing with NCERTs.

Join us in our Webinar, where we will discuss how you can start your Answer Writing using NCERTs if you are a UPSC Beginner.
