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 a complete guide 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.

UPSC Examination, being one the most competitive exams in India, and perhaps the world, they require sustained efforts and systematic preparation.

The objective of the interview is to assess the personal suitability of a candidate for a career in public service, by competent and unbiased observers. The interview, in broad terms, is an assessment of intellectual qualities as well as social trait and his interest in current affairs. An attempt is made to judge some important qualities as: mental alertness, critical powers of assimilation, clear and logical exposition, balanced judgement, variety and depth of interest, ability for social cohesion and leadership, intellectual and moral integrity

Considering all these details of the UPSC exam, Chanakya Mandal Pariwar, with its 26+ years of its proven legacy of success, has designed this course for you all. The course structure in Chanakya Mandal Pariwar is created to make student empowered to face this challenging exam. We at Chanakya Mandal Pariwar believe that even though there is no one-size-fits-all approach, there are some common principles which are crucial for success. Some of these important principles are as given below:

Mindset of being Civil Servant:

Civil servants are expected to be problemsolvers, not just arm-chair critics. We try to bring in that ‘Problem Solving approach’ by not just making students aware of complexities of national, international, social issues but also making them aware of tried and tasted models of overcoming these challenges by regular interactions with Serving and Retired officers, Activists, Policy Makers, Subject Experts, etc.
And after all, each session of Dharmadhikari Sir is a treasure trove of such insightfully enriching experiences of his 10 years of being activist, 10 years of being civil servant and 26+ years of guiding officers, students across the country, and his life-long journey of consistent quest for knowledge.
All these things combined instill that orientation towards ‘Service’ aspect of Civil Services, which is most important in preparation, and also during actual service.

Exam oriented Approach:

It is often seen that a few candidates have lot of knowledge and wisdom, but because of directionless studies which are not on the lines of what UPSC exam demands from a candidate, it becomes difficult for them to get good scores in Prelims, Mains, etc.
To ensure that this does not happen, from the first session itself, we insist on being examoriented. Quest for the knowledge, wisdom is endless, everyone should pursue that throughout his/her life. But, for the upcoming year, when the student is preparing for a competitive exam like UPSC, he/she should always be thinking ‘Is the article I am reading relevant for the exam ?’, ‘Is the TV debate that I am listening to useful my success in exam?’ , ‘How can I use this information/opinion/fact in my answer writing’, etc.
Once a student has a good command on the previous year questions of UPSC, he/she will be in better position to tackle think on these lines. For that, we keep releasing latest versions of our previous year question paper analysis book ‘UPSC Vijaypath’. Our sessions also has references of relevant previous year questions and reasoning of UPSC to ask that question in that particular year. It helps students to develop that aptitude to separate the what from the chaff, it becomes especially necessary, in the age of information-overload.

Building analytical thought process:

Important for all 3 stages of exam. In Prelims, to solve tricky questions; in Mains for putting your balanced thoughts in limited words effectively; in Interview to present a mature outlook towards complex issues. We believe that “Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the Mind to think.” And to encourage this thought process we have our interactive free-flowing sessions in such a manner where students know that their questions are always welcome. We also arrange for panel discussion sessions with our faculty members and experts. On various issues, we make them think, make notes and discuss using ‘5W-1H’ principle to bring in all aspects in perspective.

Originality and clarity in outlook:

Important for Mains answer writing to bring in element of novelty; Important for Interview to present your genuine depth of understanding. “In a world deluged by irrelevant information, clarity is power.” To enhance this originality and clarity, we urge students to go to the depth of the issues, read multiple quality relevant articles, books, etc. to think out of the box. We arrange for brainstorming discussion sessions to bring out their creativity to make them come up with original perspectives.

Methodical MCQ Practice:

“It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backwards”. For that, we have yearlong Prelims Test Series which makes students master MCQ solving techniques. And regular sessions of MCQ strategy, elimination techniques are arranged so that students keep on improving with each test. Even though predicting UPSC questions and/topics is not possible, it is experience of our aspirants that many of our questions do resemble UPSC questions.

Intensive Answer Writing Practice:

Development in all above 3 qualities will be futile if students can’t express these things in words. If you talk to any candidate who has cleared the exam, he will tell you the importance of answer writing. We keep repeating “What you practice is what you’ll do”, and for that, we arrange for regular answer writing practice at end of most of our sessions and at the end of modules. Also, there is a year-long Mains Test Series which incrementally enhances students’ confidence by detailed feedback by expert team of faculties. For answer writing, remember that “It is never too early” to start practicing. Many answer copies of Mains appearing candidates are evaluated personally by Dharmadhikari Sir. Thousands of students convey that this detailed evaluation has made them sail through Mains examination with ease. And it is testimony to the efforts of our expert faculties that 2019 Mains Test Series questions of about 600+ marks were replicated in actual UPSC Mains 2019.

Presenting your best version in interview is the key to success:

Interview preparation is an ongoing process throughout the life. Generally, we observe that, few students are really fearful of facing the interview panel mainly due to perceived unpredictability of questions, awe-induced fear of interaction with senior expert panelists, etc. “Fear not! Uncertainty is the fertile ground of endless possibilities.” So as to remove this fear and to sharpen the preparation of interview, we have various initiatives, most of them are organized after Mains exam is over. Initially, special session to guide students to fill up their DAF (Detailed Application Form) is arranged wherein students are guided about filling up hobbies, interests, cadre and service preferences, etc. We also arrange for Interview Seminars wherein experts in soft skills, behavioral analysis, subject experts give comprehensive guidance to students. Specific sessions are also arranged for questions based on issues related to home state, cadre preferences, service preferences, etc.

The highest point of Interview Preparation initiative is our Mock Interview. Our mock interviews are conducted in Pune, Mumbai and Delhi which are conducted by eminent panelists from all across India. Some of the panelists are as mentioned below:

We have designed our Course Structure keeping all these principles as the core of our efforts.
