More from less: The fast-to-learn approach from ClearIAS
“More from less” – is always the core philosophy of ClearIAS. We don’t over-supply study materials or cut-copy-paste everything on Newspapers/Yojana/KurukshetraPIB/Rajya SabhaTV and claim that many questions came from our resources.
We provide only the most important notes. We focus on fast-learning. Our study materials are short and simple. ClearIAS mock tests can be revised in less than 2 hours. Our focused approach once again has fetched valuable return for our students in a limited time.
We focus on equipping candidates with exams of any difficulty standards
Having repeatedly come up with many questions which asked in UPSC (in 2016, 14 questions came from a single current affairs mock test of ClearIAS), our team’s perception is different.
The parameter for determining the success of any test series should not be just the number of questions asked from the same in actual UPSC exam. Yes, that is important, but what is more important is equipping aspirants to deal with any situation in UPSC exam hall.
This year exam proves that what matters is not spoonfeeding, but a thorough understanding of basic concepts.
Constant practice is needed to train your mind to deal with multiple choice questions with multiple statements involving negative marking. Testimonials from successful candidates prove that ClearIAS methodology is easy to follow and results in big returns.
