Course Curriculum


Do I need great writing skills to score well in the Essay paper? Is Essay-writing a skill?

No. The essay paper is not a test of prose. Nor is it a literary competition. You just need the ability to convert logical arguments into plain English / Hindi. All the steps to do that easily are explained in an easy way to understand and apply in this course.

Do I need in-depth knowledge of the essay topic to produce a good essay?

Do I have to know facts and data to write a good essay?

Give the UPSC exactly what they want. And they are not looking for facts and data in the Essay paper. They are looking for very SPECIFIC elements which you will learn. Complete Analysis of what UPSC wants and how to deliver is given in lecture 1 of the course.

Do I need a rich vocabulary to write good essays? Do I need very good English language skills to score well in Essay paper? Do I need to use flowery language?
