When you are thinking of joining any coaching institute, do not go by their advertisements. Many institutes only keep the names of toppers even if they visited their institute for open mock interview as it was free. There are gradations in the level of engagement a topper has with an institute, and you need to recognize this before you decide to join them.

It is always advisable to take the opinion of those who have already taken mppsc coachingin that institute, to make an informed decision. Their response should be given more importance and not pamphlets or advertisements.

About the capacity of teachers in coaching institutes?

Many a times, aspirants (especially beginners) place a lot of trust and credibility in the coaching teachers. Some teachers are really good but some are just awful. Especially in special subjects like GS, reading standard books and referring to internet will tell you whether what you are being taught in mppsc coaching in indoreinstitutes is right or just rubbish.

You can also search the blogs of toppers on that particular topic, who would have given an accurate account of their opinion about the institute.

How useful are coaching notes? Can they replace standard books?

Standard books are important because they are written from the ground up and they form the foundation of your knowledge. Once you have read the standard books, reading coaching mppsc notesbecomes not only a lot easier, but you can also see where a small subject fits into that bigger picture.

The problem with just reading coaching mppsc notesis that they give you such a big picture perspective. What you will be left with are fragmented concepts and broken knowledge that do not stay in your memory for long. For long term memory, we need context of a topic, so you should always start with standard books.

While reading the mppsc notes, remember these:

1.   MPPSC Coaching in indorenotes are helpful and they are easy to revise before the exam. But they can only complement but never replace standard books.

2.   Always map your notes to the chapters and topics of the course. Most of the coaching institutes do not cover the syllabus completely. Even if they do, they usually run through a few chapters. So when you see that a topic is not covered well in your notes, read yourself from other sources and make mppsc handwritten notes.

3.   Coaching notes and materials come in handy to cover a specific topic. For example for subject like government schemes, instead of laboring to compile them from the websites of ministries, it is better that you buy compilation booklet of any institute. Smart work saves you a lot of time.

4.   You must remember that MPPSC is not at all like an undergraduate exam. In college, it is quite easy to just read notes and score well. But in MPPSC, the questions are of high level and of deep analytical depth. Usually, no question comes directly from your mppsc coaching notes. It is the clarity of your concepts - especially in the optional - that will help you write good answers.

Should I take coaching for GS?

General Studies is not quantum physics. MPPSC only expects candidates to have a generalist understanding of a wide range of topics. So if you have the material with you and can study on your own, you will be able to understand the subject and hence GS coaching isn’t really necessary. You only need to go the market, buy the relevant GS material or coaching notes and study on your own.

      This is a perennial question I get asked the most. And it's understandable too. Many aspirants who start preparing for civil services are not aware of the demands of this exam and most cannot afford to take coaching by going to Delhi only.

      There are many doubts and misconceptions regarding taking coaching for UPSCCSE . So let me break it down for you.

      Coaching Institutes plays important role in your upsc exam preparation. If you are a fresher and thinking to appear for IAS exam then joining a upsc coaching will be very beneficial for you.

      If you have already done offline UPSC coachingin past 2 years and you are confident enough then you can do self study or join some online course to plan your preparation for UPSC IAS exam. Join some test series of Sharma Academy or Best upsc coaching in indore institute. To solve your doubts, you can use free apps like doubtnut, brainly, various what'sup groups and telegram doubt solving groups, online doubt forums etc.

      If your family can afford a coaching then it is a good idea to join a coaching as it helps you to grasp the concepts quickly as compared to when you study by yourself.

      But if you can’t afford coaching then you can take help form online coaching classesresources. There are many websites which clear concepts without any cost. You can get your doubts clear in those websites. You should definitely join test series, it will help you greatly during examination.

      If you don’t join any IAS coaching in indoreand start self study then you might face some problems like -

      ·         Tough to get doubts cleared

      ·         No competitive environment

      ·         No one to make you study

      ·         You will be lonely and may or may not get depressed

      ·         All your friends will be enjoying college while you will be alone at home mugging up salt colours. This may or may not discourage you

       

      As for the positive things are-

      ·         You can study whatever subject and whatever chapter in depth whenever you want

      ·         You can make you own schedule according to your weak/strong subjects/chapters.

       

      Best UPSC coaching in indoresuggest practised many test papers during the last 5 months. This will improve your speed and confidence.

      Coaching merely helps you, it does not ensure you a rank. Your self study, consistency and the hard work you put in sitting at your study table matters far more than what you do in coaching classes. So if you are attending coaching classes, do take their notes, but you should not rely excessively on them and neglect standard books.

      Always remember that roughly not more than 25-30% of your preparation should depend on upsc coaching classes. To say that you cannot crack UPSC without coaching is a lie. There are people who have put in that 25% of the work on their own and have passed this test (ie, they must have read the coaching notes but didn't attend any classes.) So it is your personal belief, self discipline and your knowledge. To determine whether you need coaching or not.

      Assuming you know which standard books to study, which coaching notes to refer to, and by reading them you are able to understand the subject, that's brilliant and you don't need coaching.

      On the other hand, if you are completely clueless about the exam process or the books you study, then the coaching institutes will surely help you to get a comprehensive idea. But as I said, you still have to read standard books, make necessary notes and work to beat your competition.

      Study Materials of Coaching institute

      upsc syllabusand can judicially select what to read, printed material will go well. Hand written notes at time are difficult to understand and read because it comprehended by the person who has attended live classes and may not be legible.

      Tips & Planning for General Studies Paper-1 

      For facing Prelims Ganeral Studies Paper I, they need to be aware and well help them in attempting many questions. It involves both clarity about the basics as well as abreast of current affairs and contemporary developments. It includes areas like Indian National Movement, Indian Polity, Basic Economic Understanding, Current Affairs, Science and Technology, etc. While the dynamic part includes Current Affairs, GK has no proper definition and syllabus making it quite vast subject. Since the syllabus does not give much detail of the topics to be studied under each subject it is expected to gain knowledge of them that should be slightly below the graduation level but above the high school level.
      There are about 100 questions to be answered in two hours, each question carries two marks. It means there is about 1.2 minute to answer each question. So, speed and accuracy are essential to tackle this examination. While the correct answer will fetch 2 marks, a wrong answer a loss of 0.66 marks i.e. 1/3rd from the correct tally of score.

      The 100 questions in Paper I can be grouped into three categories:

      1.     Multiple Choice Questions-Single response correct

      2.     Multiple Choice Questions-Multiple response correct

      3.      Multiple Choice Questions-Matching type

      The number of questions asked from different sections varies each time and there is no fixed rule for this. The nature of questions asked are generally on basic principles, their application, factual information and current affairs. Some questions are based on applied aspects of principles and factual information. It has been found that many of the questions overlap with more than one section of the syllabus.
      The answer to the question requires analytical bend. So mere reading of NCERT high school text books is now insufficient for the preparation of the prelims and in depth reading is required to handle such question. The best way should be to adopt an integrated approach for preparation combining it with Mains, and one should make efforts to understand the principles and then strive to find their applications in daily life.
      Considering the nature of the examination the tactics must be to focus on greater rather than intensive coverage. On is expected to know everything at the same time. However, only basics of each of the discipline are needed, so aspirants study basic concepts and facts as possible, avoiding the in depth preparations at Prelims stage.
