The intricately planned Prelims-cum-Mains course structure allows for this effective approach to be implemented effortlessly.

  • Even the General Studies subjects covered under the Prelims-cum-Mains course are not immune to the various twists introduced by UPSC in every successive Civil Services Examination. From changing the weightage of marks allocated for different topics to changing the difficulty levels of questions from particular topics, UPSC constantly tweaks the GS papers in both the Prelims and Main examinations, making it the duty of every serious candidate to adapt to these changes and prepare to face the exam irrespective of the uncertainties.

How does Legacy IAS Academy’s Online + Offline classes work?

  • At Legacy IAS Academy we employ our own online platform ( which was designed specifically for UPSC Civil Services Aspirants.
  • The platform enables access to Live and Interactive classes from anywhere as long as you have a working internet connection.
  • Each student will be provided with a secure access to the personalized platform and all the classroom content including presentations, PDFs and recorded videos will be available on the platform in an organized manner.
  • The platform works effectively in supporting the projection of content in the offline physical classroom as well as displaying the chat box to the faculty taking the class. Hence, it directly broadcasts everything the faculty ‘writes on the board’ in the classroom to the live online class while also displaying the doubts asked by online students directly to the faculty.
  • The platform also allows for recorded sessions to be made available throughout the course duration for a student missing out on attending the class in both offline and online modes. However, to ensure accountability and diligence, a student must provide for valid reasons to avail access to the recorded sessions.

How does Legacy IAS Academy conduct tests for Online students?

  • Similar to our own online platform for classes, we employ our own platform for conducting Online tests as well. Legacy IAS Academy’s Online Test Portal facilitates the conduction of BOTH Prelims and Mains Tests for our Online Students.
  • The e-test platform allows for smooth navigation through the Prelims questions (MCQs) and provisions for marking questions to attempt them later and reviewing marked questions are also made available.
  • The Prelims Tests will be graded and the results and batch-wise rank will be available immediately after completion of the test.
  • Mains tests conducted through the online platform will require the students to write their answers on A4 sheets, scan them and then upload the scanned PDF on the platform. The uploaded PDFs will be evaluated by the faculty and uploaded back on the platform for the students to view the feedback that they have received for their Mains answers.
