Residential study camp twice a year for rigorous preparation of UPSC and MPSC exams

BBA - MBAEvery year Chanakya Mandal Pariwar organises 2 intensive residential study camps for preparation of UPSC and MPSC exams. First study camp is organised generally in the month of August and another in the month of January. August camp emphasises on study for Mains. J a n u a r y i s t h e t i m e w h e n t h e notifications of UPSC examination is round the corner, so thi s camp i s deleberately organized to star t the preparation for Prelims.
Daily schedule of these camps starts at 7 am and goes on till 9 pm. One of the important purposes of this camp is to toughen our students, to make them capable of putting in hard work for 12-14-16 hours a day.
Outstanding and eminent personalities and experts from respective fields have a dialogue with the students regarding subjects of study. Following are the names of few such personalities who have previously spoken to students : the then Finance Minister of Maharashtra Shri. Jayant Patil, former PWD Minister Shri. Nitin Gadkari, the then Home Minister of Maharashtra Shri. R. R. Patil, Umeshchandra Sarangi (IAS Rtd.), Dr. Nitin Kareer (IAS), Smt. Meera Borwankar (IPS), Bhishmaraj Bam (IPS Rtd.), well-known environmentalist Shri. Mohan Dharia, leader of co-oprative movement in Maharashtra Shri. Balasaheb Vikhe-Patil, Dr. Sudhir Bhongale, Retired Forest Officer Shri. Madhavrao Gogate, Director Observator y Dr. Medha Khole, Scientist Dr. Raghunath Mashelkar etc. Throughout these camps Shri . Dharmadhikari Sir conducts one session daily. 
In Abhyas Mahotsav a detailed g u i d a n c e i s p r o v i d e d b y t h e s ucces s f ul s t udent s and exper t faculties on the subjects like syllabi, study material, study methods, paper solving technique, previous year question papers, practice papers, important topics for the current exam etc. Some printed notes are also provided. Students may take the advantage of personal counselling as well. This camp proves to be beneficial especially for those students who cannot otherwise, for some reason, do the entire long duration course. They can get back to their native places and do their own study after the camp. Students of our regular course are automatically enrolled for this camp. 
Throughout the ‘Abhyas Mahotsav’, arrangements of food for all participants are made at the place of the camp. Some sessions are combined for all students and these are mainly conducted in Marathi. Other sessions are conducted seperately for respective courses and batches. Their medium is English or Marathi according to the course. 
Module Pattern
All batches follow a “Module Pattern" of teaching. So what is “module pattern"
  • Module pattern means subtopics of General Studies are taken one by one and complete guidance for that particular subtopic is completed continuously without breaking or interrupting the flow of the subject. Notes for that particular subtopic are also given at the same time and after completion of teaching a practice test is also conducted. Thus, this pattern ensures that each subtopic is concretely imprinted on the student’s mind. Excluding the subjects which are your degree subjects, all other subtopics are unknown and new for you. Only if you take up these subjects one by one and learn them in an uninterrupted manner, can you master them. It is our experience that this pattern proves very useful.
  • But, in this pattern it is obvious and unavoidable that some subjects will have to be taught towards the end of the course. Sometimes some students are afraid of the fact that we are approaching the end of the course and not a single lecture has been conducted for a particular subject. But this is not at all something to be afraid of, because every subject is going to be taught as per its sequence. On the contrary, the subjects which will be taught in the end are taught to you just before the exam and remain fresh in your mind. It is also our experience that if students adjust their self-study timetable with the classes they are benefited even more.
