POINT IAS is a dedicated platform aimed at providing quality study material and content for UPSC Civil Services exam preparation, with a special focus on students appearing in the examination with ‘Law’ as their optional subject.
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.
At the outset, we would like to note that we like to keep our materials ‘crisp, concise, conceptual and contextual’. We believe in dealing with ‘one-issue at a time’. Therefore, we keep our posts short but packed with information. We sincerely believe in quality over quantity and therefore have an ‘information-application oriented approach’ in our study material. Every piece of information can be useful. The crux lies in the application. A piece of information may be useful for prelims and the same information can be used for an answer in Mains or can be a forceful marks-fetching point in an essay. Therefore, we focus on information, short and crisp, so that our readers never lose the context and make the most of every information.
The syllabus of UPSC CSE – Preliminary Examination is vast. Moreover so, in the recent times, the questions as asked in this examination have been more ‘conceptual and context based’ than fact based. Thus, in order to crack the Preliminary Examination, it is imperative that one has an in-depth contextual clarity of the relevant topics.
Therefore, POINT IAS provides an ‘issue-based’ analysis for assisting in preparations for the Preliminary Examination. In order to ensure that our readers get an all-round contextual understanding of the issues, practice questions (strictly as per the pattern of UPSC CSE – Preliminary Examination) relating to a specific issue would also be regularly posted. We believe that solving questions which are related to a specific issue would help our readers understand the ‘concept and context’ of an issue and would also be easy to keep the details in mind. Detailed answers of each of the questions would also be provided in the post.
With the diverse range of topics as part of UPSC CSE syllabus for general studies (Preliminary and Mains), we 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.
We sincerely hope that our readers find these services useful!
