Features of our Test Series Programme

Geography Optional Paper nowadays has been considered very tricky because of the change in the pattern of questions year by year.

Pattern 1: In-depth Questions

The type of questions and the topics through which UPSC is asking has also changed significantly over the period of time. For E.g.

  • Describe the landforms which are product of endogenetic forces. (2004)
  • “Structure is a dominant control factor in the evolution of landforms.” Discuss with suitable examples. (2005)
  • “Climate, slope gradient and rock structure influence the avulsion of channels” Explain. (2017)

Now if we observe the above three questions one can conclude that although the information which is required to solve above questions is same but the level of detail is much deeper in 3rd question which is asked in 2017. Here first of all one has to understand the meaning of 'avulsion of channels' and then only question can be answered.

Pattern 2: Interdisciplinary Approach

The questions are now designed from the underlined sub-topics not mentioned directly in the syllabus, but they usually revolve around the periphery of the core syllabus with link to other subjects.          

For example in 2017 questions were asked as:            

  • Discuss the freshwater crisis in India and prepare a blueprint for its sustainable management.
  • Identify the Naxal-affected areas in India and discuss their socio-economic problems.
  • “An effective three-tier Panchayat Raj System will strengthen the bottom-up approach to multilevel planning in India." Explain.

The questions are interdisciplinary in approach. They cover  Environment, Geography, governance, Social, etc dimensions.

Pattern 3: Change in the format of topics

Earlier, the most favourite topics for the examiners were 'Plate Tectonics', 'Vulcanicity', 'Geomorphological Cycles' and so on. But now more focus is given on unventured topics such as 'Channel Morphology', 'Denudation Chronology', 'Applied Geomorphology' and so on.

Thus it becomes important to understand that lot of answer writing practice with holistic coverage of the entire syllabus will fetch lot of marks in geography.  

So need of the hour is to identify the underlined topics, learn, practice and tackle the multi-dimensional questions with ease.

What is the programme all about?

  • The main feature of our test series would be to cover all those important topics of geography which generally students feel difficult to face and UPSC has made habit of asking question from that areas.
  • In depth coverage of all the topics which are not covered in traditional geography curriculum.
  • Comprehensive Test Discussion will be held on Sunday after the test.
  • During test the discussion focus will be on detailed coverage of the relevant topic.
  • In case students miss the discussion class, the video recording will be provided to the student in his user id portal.
  • Time bound evaluation of the answer booklets of the students.
  • Students will have complete liberty to get in touch with the faculty in order to solve their optional subject related queries.
