Here are some frequently answered questions

No. The sooner you start the better it is. This course involves buiding your potential for a grilling UPSC preparation process. It is essential that you finish your preparation well in time to ensure proper revision cycles.

Don’t worry. The beginner section is meant for the people who find reading a challenging task. You will be given small assignments to read and then some questions based on that. You will also be taking up discussion sessions with your mentor and your buddy (study partner) on a weekly basis. We promise you will start liking reading in this manner.

Your sessions will be conducted through video chats. In the beginner stage, there will be two students in a class. At the later stages, the classes will be for one student at a time only.

No. Mentors have personal lives as well. It will be advisable to call them on the schedule only. If you need special attention to some topic, message, email the mentor and he/she will call you.

No. You must take either Sociology or Geography as an optional. These options are best suited for the plan we have created.
