2 Years Integrated Course for UPSC

INTRODUCING THE 2-YEARS INTEGRATED COURSE

Legacy IAS Academy introduces the 2-Years Integrated Course for UPSC Civil Services Exam preparation to groom students for being well-equipped and on par with the level of competition that prevails in the toughest exam in India! The 2-Years Integrated Course is well-designed for covering the syllabus in the most comprehensive and exhaustive manner to put even an aspirant who joined as a beginner, on the same level as a ‘repeater’ who has previously reached the interview stage.

 

The course duration allows for a student to cover each and every micro-topic and apply the knowledge gained in writing top-notch answers by simply practicing and revising and covering all weaknesses. Since the student will be covering the entire syllabus more than once over a longer-duration, the approach allows for a calmer and measured approach to maximizing the potential for achieving a rank within the top 100 rather than just being present in the final selection list.

The 2-Years Integrated Course is the right choice for…

Any aspirant will be benefitting from the ample amount of time, revisions and practice that is possible through the 2-Years Integrated course. Joining this course will clearly erase any doubts one may have along the lines of “Am I giving myself enough time to prepare?” or “Will I be able to do what is required to clear the exam before appearing?”. We can guarantee you that your unyielding efforts through the entire course is more than sufficient to put yourself in the best position to get a good rank in the Civil Services Exam.

 

Although anyone can take up the 2-Years Integrated course, it is most ideal for:

 

  • Students who are in the penultimate year of their graduation degree and aiming to give the UPSC exam in their final semester,
  • Working professionals who have the need to stretch their preparation due to a lack of time,
  • Beginners who are targeting the coveted top 100 rank in their first attempt and have the resources and time needed to prepare for 2-years in a row, and
  • Aspirants who are currently dealing with other commitments in life that would eat up their time for preparation.

Details of Legacy IAS Academy’s 2-Years Integrated Course

The 2-Years Integrated Course provided by Legacy IAS Academy can be thought of as a 2-stage programme.

 

  1. The First stage is akin to the Prelims-cum-Mains Course provided by Legacy IAS Academy, with the primary focus on building a solid foundation for fundamental concepts in the General Studies subjects of both Prelims and Mains.
  2. The Second stage is aimed at providing a higher level of understanding, reinforcement and application of knowledge in both GS subjects as well as the Optional Subject, similar to the Foundation Course.

 

Building the right foundation is key to maximize the benefits of preparation and hence the knowledge base will be built up gradually from the level of NCERT Books to advanced concepts in the Standard books through the first stage of the 2-Years Integrated Course. Along with the knowledge base, other fundamental skills such as newspaper-reading, notes preparation, Mains answer-writing etc., will be developed in the first stage.

 

Once you have “covered” all the topics for the first time and learnt how to make notes and write answers for the Mains exam, you will now be ready to take your preparation to the next level. The concepts in the GS subjects will be covered once again in the second stage, however, it will be much different as you will be learning to draw conclusions and form correlations between the concepts in different subjects, along with relating everything that you learn with Current Affairs and Mains answers. The second stage will not only reinforce the knowledge gained through practice and revisions, but also take your thought-process and answer-writing skills to the next level.

Benefits of taking up the 2-Years Integrated Course

  • A 2-years course definitely Maximizes your chances of getting top ranks even at a young age.
  • Students who are in their second to last year of graduation degree will be in a position to directly appear in the exam during the last semester without wasting a year after graduation.
  • Aspirants with work (or other) commitments that take up their daily time will be able to prepare holistically without feeling guilty of “not doing enough”.
  • Sufficient time can be given to cover the syllabus extensively at a calmer and measured pace rather than rushing through the preparation.
  • Definitively cover all the the gaps and weaknesses such as writing speed or framing answers without having to skip past anything.
  • Understand concepts in all the subjects regardless of the perceived importance, to avoid the risk having to face a question on something you haven’t read about.
  • Leave no stone unturned in terms of Current Affairs, thereby remaining able to answer questions that are asked on events in the news up to 2 years prior to the exam (as seen in recent trends of UPSC).
  • Hone every skill that is necessary such that it becomes second-nature and hence maximizes your potential to crack the exam.
