We have got few queries with regards to our essay program.
Here is our answer.
Q- Is the Essay Program Flexible ?
A- Yes, the program is completely flexible, however we urge candidate to adhere to the timeline, so that by the time they are through the program their writing will be refined.
Q-How many tests ?
A- We give 10 essay tests. Each test has 4 topics and we ask student to write at least 2 topics from each essay test.In short we will give you 40 essay topics , and if you are interested in writing 40 essay topics , we review all the essays.
Q-Can a student write topics of his/her choosing ?
A- Last year we gave this flexibility, however we got many essay topics written by student that are not going to help them. However, if anyone who wants to write a topic of their choosing , we will review it nonetheless. Last year we managed to predict 6 out of 8 essay topics in the Mains exam, and urge you to write the topics which we provide first, so that you are better prepared for the upcoming exam.
Q- Is there a guidance available apart from the personalized feedback ?
A- We give 3 to 4 pages of review for each essay you write. However, due to multiple request by students, this year , we will give you some material and guidelines on each essay topic , so that you have fairly a good deal of idea on what to write for each topic. Materials will be varied (Editorial, references, books and frameworks written by us along with few good quotes to use them wisely)
Q-Is the coupon code still valid ?
A- Many have joined us at different points of time, hence we have reactivated the coupon codes , so that you can use them (Limited time only)
A- Yes, providing good review requires good faculty and there are very limited number of people who can give you top-notch essay reviews, thus the student numbers are also limited in this aspect.So if you are interested, joining sooner will be wise as essay has it own learning curve ( If you want to write top-notch essays , then you have to start soon, write them at regular intervals and get it reviewed- and before the exam , just check those reviews and appear, you will certainly do better)
Q-How do we frame the topics ?
A- We try to catch the pulse of the time and UPSC and then bring in some literary works along with critical aspects and devise a topic. Most of the topics are written by ourselves (for example – Technology makes democracy more democratic or Demography of India- Visible dividend or Invisible disaster or Sustainable development – myth or reality or India- Too may Children but too little childhood and so on – the topics itself are qualitative and can be used in your answers)
Q-I already score good marks in essay , so why should I join ? (Thanks Aakash for asking this question as it is one of those crucial mistakes that many make)
A- This is a very good question, most of the students who have written and scored well in the Essay paper have a good deal of idea on how devise a good framework. The only reason you may think to join us is simple, we give topic-wise reviews, so if that topic comes in the exam you will be better equipped to answer it.
Moreover, many say that they know how to write an essay and aware of the strategy. True. But most of us are aware of the general strategy. Unless you write an essay on a particular topic, you will never know, what is your strength and which mistakes to avoid to score even better. Hence topic-wise strategy is must. General strategy gives you the general idea but topic-wise strategy will take you far and help you succeed. Everyone , who scored well in essay are already aware of it. Also , once you write on each topic of the test series, you will be wiser on which topic to choose and which one to avoid and align it with your core strength.(For example – One can write very good essay on environment topic but may falter on a philosophical essay and if you are already aware of it, then those mistakes can be avoided. You should avoid the dilemma – if i have chosen that essay then I might have scored more – this can be avoided once you write and get it reviewed)
On a side note, Essay program is one of our flagship program. Last year, more than 90% who joined us have tried other programs and had Mains experience (at least once), and upon receiving their first review, they were highly satisfied. We put a sincere effort in our review and this year it is going to be much better as we will be giving reference materials and guidelines for essay topics.
