Daily Answer Writing Practice
After SUGAM, if you feel that there is a need to practice more, you can opt for an advanced answer writing course called STEPS name Daily Answer Writing Practice – Stay on Track and Enrich your Preparation. It’s a course devotes to numerous practice answer writing sessions. One gets to practice answer writing GS paper-wise. On Mondays, GS-I topics are cover. On Tuesdays, GS-II topics are cover. Wednesdays are for GS-III topics and Thursdays are for GS-IV or Ethics. On Fridays, current affairs and essays ranging from topics such as environment to health are cover in great detail. This course polishes your answer writing skills.
One thing which I would like to share on a personal note is that you shouldn’t start comparing your answers with that of toppers in the initial days of answer writing, This is because it will decrease your morale since initially, you won’t be able to write effective and good answers, and so might discontinue practicing. So, it is advisable not to compare in the beginning.
Preparation for Daily Answer Writing Practice
Taking into account the handful of months that distant Prelims and Mains, it becomes difficult to cover everything and write effective and logically-conclusive answers. I was struggling with answer writing till I joined STEPS. “Stay on Track and Enrich your Preparation” or STEPS is an answer writing course that focuses on providing the aspirants with a holistic approach to attempting the Mains question paper with confidence and the ability to relate what’s happening in the world with static GS content. With umpteen mock tests which are way too similar to the actual UPSC answer writing Mains examination, this course is based on only one objective – the more you write, the better you get.
The practice sessions of this 8-week long advance answer writing course don’t leave any topic in the “Do-It-Yourself” category. GS topics are cover comprehensively and thoroughly including world history and post-independent India. On Fridays especially, topics of national as well as international relevance are cover in great detail. In addition to that, the topics of the Essay paper such as science and technology, health, governance, and social justice, women and gender issues, environment and climate change, philosophical and moral issues, issues pertaining to the Indian economy, internal security and to name a few are cover in great detail. Not only that, the mock tests’ questions are framed in such a way that the vocabulary, analytical as well as time-management skills are tested in each and every aspect. On a whole, it covers anything and everything properly in Daily Answer Writing Practice.
I got myself enrolled in this course last month and managed to score a whopping 135 in the GS-II paper. In my opinion, STEPS – the advance answer writing program of Eden IAS is great. I hope this answer helps. All the very best for your preparation! Happy writing and happy preparing for the exam!
