[ADMISSIONS OPEN] Comprehensive Public Administration ( CPA) for CSE Mains 2023 by Insights IAS – Target 300+ in Public Administration






Hello everyone,

It has been a few days since UPSC conducted prelims exam. We all know that the questions were highly unexpected, broad and difficulty level was increased. UPSC will always ensure and find its way to select students with thorough examination process. However, it is the accepted fact that instead of sobbing for a long time gear up yourself and level up your game!

Also, you have to keep moving ahead. If you are getting 80 plus in GS and clearing Csat comfortably then start preparing for this Mains 2023. Even otherwise, you don’t have an option. If you want to give mains next year, then this is the best time to prepare for Mains exam.

Approach it like this – you are going to give Mains this year, either in exam hall or in insights test centre or your library – but YOU ARE WRITING MAINS EXAM this year!!

In this context, we have decided to conduct a comprehensive course for Public Administration Optional for 2023 Mains exam.

We understand that there are multiple types of students who will be giving Mains 2023.

Category A

  • If you are a person who is giving your Mains exam for the first time with Public Administration optional (or)
  • you have scored less than 250 marks in Public Administration in the previous Mains exam (or)
  • You only have class notes or reference books and have not consolidated your notes and you do not have short notes (or)
  • You are not clearing this prelims exam and you are preparing for next year Mains exam

If you fall under the above category, you need a slightly different approach which we are catering through our Comprehensive Public Administration course.


Category B

If you are a student who has given multiple Mains exam with Public Administration optional and you have done all the foundation work like short notes on all topics in the syllabus and answers for pyqs and your scores are in the range of 250 to 260 , then you need answer writing practice and individualized guidance to score one mark more in every question. For such students we recommend Public Administration Test series course conducted by Insights IAS .

Unlike GS papers, optional subjects need a unique approach. It is a make or break subject to get into the final list. If you score 280 or 300 plus in optional, your chances of getting into top 100 Ranks is very high .

If you have given mains, you would have realised that you can’t get hold on optionals by studying for one or two weeks. It needs constant learning and improvement. Or else you will end up getting around 250 or less in optionals which is not sufficient to take you to top 100.

Hence, we have designed this course in such a way that, you will put constant effort on optionals for at least 3 to 4 hours everyday till Mains 2023
