Frequently Asked Questions

Ideally, a student must have revised his basic synopsis 3-4 times, written a lot of answers, and completed all the static portions before attempting any mock test. But, what if these things have not been done beforehand? Our Geography Optional Mains Support Program with Test Series is not a CRASH Course - claiming to complete the syllabus by teaching from basics. Rather, the focus is on a lot of answer-writing practice according to the trend and pattern of PYQs. Hence, the structure is such that before giving the Mock Test, you read and revise 20 Practice questions based on PYQ with their model answers to help you write with confidence in the real exam. 

  • Course Duration: 3 month
  • Course Commencement Date - 03-July-24
  • Includes 5 Sectional Tests, 4 Full Length Tests & 11 Practice Tests
  • Read, Revise, Practice & Test Technique
  • 24 Live Sessions
  • Structured Mentorship

  • The Program is driven purely by our team of dedicated mentors where the focus of the PROGRAM DESIGN was to enable practice-based learning among students. The Mid-Week Practice Test is a unique attempt to help you memorize and cover important topics, such that before you start giving full-length mock tests, you have a sense of writing answers and don't go blank. Apart from this, the Mentorship Support (Both Online & Offline) ensures that students are always in the right direction of learning so that they come out of the exam hall with flying colors.
  • The topics of the test are in the exact same pattern as UPSC, helping the students with a comfort, when they see the exact same pattern in the real exam
  • The question coverage would be from Level 1-Level 3

  • This has been consistently recommended by Toppers, following are the name of a few: 
    • Deepti Rohilla-Rank 39, 323 marks(Highest in Geography Optional in 2023)
    • Vikas Yadav, 308 Marks, UPSC CSE 23
    • Preksha -Rank 30, UPSC CSE 22
    • Nitin Singh-Rank 32, UPSC CSE 22
    • Shubham-Rank 41, UPSC CSE 22-298 Marks (Highest in Geography Optional in 2022)
    • Pratham Kaushik- 327 Marks, UPSC CSE 17 (Highest in Geography Optional in 2017)

First rule of presentation:Maps and Diagrams in every question. Sometimes one map or diagram per page. Ensure that the diagrams are relevant, although maps can be drawn in almost all questions where the scope of a diagram is not there.
Example: 1. In the question on religious minorities in border states, draw a map of India shading the border states, UTs and cities in which there are religious minorities.
2. In characteristics of biological deserts, draw a world map showing deep ocean regions, Artic and Antarctic region.
3. Intensity of energy crisis varies regionally. Explain. In this question draw a world map with demarcations as Regions of Severe Crisis, Moderate Crisis and Low Crisis.
Second rule of presentation: Incorporate both physical and human dimensions in most questions. Except for core questions like Geographical Thought, try to provide a human angle in questions of physical nature.
Example - A question on difference between Himalayan and Peninsular Drainage can be enriched by mentioning the difference in cropping pattern and industrial use of drainage water at the end. This also gives the answer an administrative orientation which is marks fetching. A pure geographical orientation is required in only a few topics. Rest of the paper, especially Paper 2 should be attempted by an administrative
- geographical perspective.

Third rule of presentation: Write answers along the lines of syllabus such as terrain, drainage (Geomorphology), climate (Climatology), soil or vegetation (Biogeography), environmental issues (Env Geo), Human geography parts such as population and
settlement, agriculture and industries (Economic Geography), development and planning etc. Thus you can generate 7-8 points on a general topic. This will not only help in incorporating the human angle but will also provide enough diversity and content in most questions

Any aspirant with Geography as their Optional Paper and targeting Mains 2024.
