POINT IAS is a dedicated platform aimed at providing quality study material and content for UPSC Civil Services exam preparation.
With a flood of information available all around, our aim is to extract & streamline all the relevant bits & pieces and present the same to you in a concise, reader-friendly manner.
Keeping the pattern of the UPSC CSE in mind, we have divided our portal into relevant sections namely –
- General Studies
- Summary of Articles
General Studies – With the diverse range of topics as part of UPSC CSE syllabus for general studies (Preliminary and Mains), this section would provide information from relevant sources in a contextual manner. It cannot be denied that as per the trend of the examination, focus on factual information cannot be solely relied upon. Along with the facts, it is imperative to focus on the context in which the facts are being presented so as to make our knowledge interdisciplinary.
Therefore, under the ‘General Studies’ section, we would provide our readers with contextual information extracted after careful research and analysis of various resources. The information under this head shall be provided in an essay format so as to boost the understanding of our readers and shall be extremely useful for answer writing in the UPSC CSE Mains examination.
POINTERS – With respect to UPSC CSE Preliminary examination, it is important to remember the fine details of relevant topics. The ‘POINTERS’ section shall provide our readers with the details of topics in a point-wise format which shall be easy to memorize. This section shall also complement the ‘General Studies’ section so as to enable our readers to reproduce relevant points for the UPSC CSE Mains examination.
Summary of Articles – Reading newspapers and magazines is an inseparable part of the UPSC CSE examination preparation process. However, due to paucity of time, most of us rely on a single newspaper (e.g. The Hindu) or magazine (e.g. Yojana).
Therefore, to supplement the preparation of our readers, we would be presenting relevant information from other sources (like NITI Aayog Publications, RBI Circulars, Notifications from Ministries, United Nations Reports etc.) in a concise manner in the section titled ‘Summary of Articles’. Wherever required, we would also connect the information provided in different sources so as to enhance the knowledge base of our readers.
We sincerely hope that our esteemed readers find these services useful!
