InsightsIAS Core Batch has been instrumental in creating many toppers since CSE-2014. The present Core Batch – 2020 derives its form, shape, essence and inspiration from earlier core batches. However, the Core Batch – 2020 is the most comprehensive program for UPSC civil services exam which seeks to transform an aspirant into a topper in one go – provided a student who is part of the program sticks to the timetable till the end.

Looking at the timetable one can see that it is a very detailed and comprehensive plan which makes life very easy for the most ambitious UPSC aspirant who has in him/her mettle, intellect and grit to crack this exam. The program seeks to channelise an aspirant’s entire energy towards meaningful and productive preparation in order to instil confidence before every stage of UPSC civil services exam.

The program relies heavily on an aspirant’s ability to do self-study without getting distracted for a course of a year. There will not be any teaching or spoon-feeding in the program. Every test we give will require careful preparation on part of an aspirant. All the tests will be carefully designed to not only test aspirant’s ability to comprehend, understand, retain, recollect and reproduce quality content, but also to give a competitive edge by touching upon only relevant topics which will be important from exam point of view (Prelims + Mains).

As the timetable is beautifully twined with subject-wise Prelims test series, a student of InsightsIAS core batch will be making an integrated preparation for UPSC civil services exam – 2020.

As the demand of UPSC has shifted (for the better) towards selecting candidates who are thoroughly aware of general  issues and have ability to think on their own by relying on self-study, our core batch program gives a perfect platform for such creed of candidates who think they possess qualities of a topper.

At InsightsIAS we have resources, talent, infrastructure and values needed to deliver the best possible guidance to our students. Every year our results have proven that our initiatives both online and offline continue to be innovative, unique and IAS aspirant – friendly.
