This is a dedicated 5 week mentorship design program wherein you will be helped out in understanding all the aspects of the Essay Writing for UPSC Mains.

<meta charset="utf-8">

You may think what is the need of special classes, it's just about 2 essays to be written in the paper, which is easily doable because some time or the other everyone has written essays in their school time. 

But what you are missing here is that this essay paper we are talking about here is to be written in UPSC Mains Examination of a total 250 marks with 1000-1200 words to be written in each essay. 

If it is still looking easy to you then think of those who lost their desirable ranks or failed to find their names in the final pdf just because of a little margin in numbers.

Strategy Behind?

Everyone has more or less the same content in the GS Papers in the mains examination. The scope to take an edge specially in GS-1,2 and 3 is very little, or to be more explanatory, it is uncertain. You may work hard for the same but you may not know if the examiner considers it that different or extra to give you extra marks or not.

But just like GS-IV, Essay even has a larger scope where you can gain extra marks with a great margin. It carries that hidden scope which when comes into play has the power to change the game analytics.

It still is not about claiming anything, we just know we have a scope here and we would like you to tap this opportunity if you are a serious aspirant.

The recent trend suggests increased frequency in Philosophical type essays and we have designed this program in our capability to cater to this changing demand.
