Writing Kasrat Daily

UPSC is nothing but scoring a lot of marks in Mains.
And to score a lot of marks in Mains, one needs to write.
Like a sprinter can't win sprints without practising for sprints every day, one can't score well in Mains without writing everyday.

Continue writing answers to Insights' Secure's questions daily, they help you create content as well as prepare Current Affairs.

What I want you to do here is to write 10 questions daily in 1.5 hours. The same speed you have to maintain in Mains, 20 questions in 3 hours.
Write even if you don't have the content for that question. Practice writing answers to such questions so that with time even your bull shit starts making sense.

I'll be posting questions based on the test series schedule of VISION IAS since most students enroll with them.
The schedule is of 22 Tests test series. That started on 29th Jan with GS-2.

Since the next test is on 6th March and of Post Independence India, World History, I'll be posting questions for the same from tomorrow until 6th March.
That is, for 3 days to come.

You guys have missed out on 5 tests hitherto. Those were of GS-2 and GS-1 (except Post Independence India and World History which is this week).

After Post Independence India and World History the next 2 weeks will have tests of Ethics, so during those 2 weeks we will try to fill in the backlogs by writing the tests that you have missed.
(After the Post Independence test we can finish the coming 7 tests (5 earlier + 2 Ethics) in the coming two weeks in a way that you wind up everything.)

That will amount to finishing up a component in almost 3 days. Which is appropriate according to me.
Starting today I'll be posting 10 questions daily for you guys to write.
Finish those 10 questions daily.

Make a routine. And stick to it.

Please note that this exercise is most suited for those who have just failed Mains, that is, who have already completed the entire syllabus at least once.

The broader strategy is to finish up the GS-Mains before 30th April by writing a lot of answers every efffing day.
And then utilise the remaining 47 days to cram and crack Prelims.
The Mains prep will also help you build foundations for Prelims by helping you be updated with concepts as well as current Affairs.

I am doing this exercise for a close set of friends and I thought it will be a great idea if I post those daily 10 questions here as well.

Remember this one thing, you will crack this exam the day you will replace a lot of Reading by a lot of Writing.

See you in a while with the questions.

  • I believe the above set of questions has 2 tough questions. UPSC also does the same. It asks you inane questions like McBride commission or West African Freedom fighters or Allelolapthy, etc.

    Thus, one needs to practice writing answers to questions that one can barely answer.

    And above all the above questions are (almost all of them) from NCERTs.

    So kindly restrategise your reading priorities accordingly.

    Good going.
    You do the first ten questions. They are relatively tougher (as being told to me by my friends). And try posting your answers here. It'll motivate others to write and post. Which may start a chain reaction of answers. Leading to collective benefit.

    I'll also try posting content or broader structure for them.

    @Jagran bhai do participate.
    Start writing answers. At least some broader structure for every question that you can.
    And try making answers on the questions that you don't know at all by reading them up.
    Your participation can act as catalyst for others to participate. So don't hold back.
