What is the objective of QEP 2017?

  • This program is designed to ensure improvement in quality and bring value addition in your answers so that 1-2 mark can be improved in each question and overall 80-150 marks in 4 papers. The aim is to focus on these marks and maximise score.
  • Providing Mentor Support via Email and Telephone to students who need any help in preparation.
  • Ensuring quality enhancement over the Tests so that there is marked difference in performance leading to an increase in Marks in the UPSC Mains Examination.

Who should join this program?

  • Freshers who are going to write mains for the first time.
  • Senior candidates who are stuck in average marks band of 80-95 in their GS papers and want to reach 110-120 range
  • Aspirants who are preparing on their own and do not have access to proper guidance.

How is this course different from other Mains Test Series Program?

  • Purpose of any test series is to get different types of question, write answers, get feedback and improve one’s answer writing style as per the requirement of exam in order to maximise marks. Most of the test series do provide good quality of question but they fail to provide quality feedback in a sustainable manner. This often defeats the purpose of improvement in answers.
  • QEP program aims to provide quality and systematic feedback on various aspects of answer viz. content, presentation, structure, simplicity etc. This will help student to assess their shortcomings and guide them in the direction of improvement. We will be following a systematic and transparent marking formula in our feedback. See below.
  • Additionally QEP will focus on Value addition. In this focus will be on ensuring that students know how to use facts, examples, case studies etc. How to make diagrams and thus add value to answer. This will help in extracting 1-2 marks in many question and thus maximising marks.
  • Every topic needs a different writing style for ex. IR answers must contain three dimensions Bilateral, Regional, Global. Geography answers must contain physical, economic and human aspect along with proper diagrams. Similarly, each subject needs a different style. These aspects will be addressed in QEP in order to equip students with right approach. Focus would be more on such things rather than blindly writing and giving random feedback like “Give more Examples”, “Write in Short Sentences”, “This sentence could be better” etc. which does not help in any improvement whatsoever.

What marking formula will be followed in QEP?

We will be considering mainly 3 things while evaluating an answer i.e.:

  • Content: Answer will be ranked on a scale of 0 to 3
  • Presentation: Answer will be ranked on a scale of 1 to 3
  • Simplicity: Answer will be ranked on a scale of 1 to 3

Marks will be given by forumla :

Total Marks = Content x (Presentation + Simplicity) x 0.5

For Ex:

  1. Content = 0, then marks will be “Zero bata Sannata” i.e. 0
  2. Content = 1,
    1. Then min marks will be 1 x (1+1) x 0.5 i.e. 1
    2. Then max marks will be 1 x (3+3) x 0.5 i.e. 3
  3. Content = 2,
    1. Then min marks will be 2 x (1+1) x 0.5 i.e. 2
    2. Then max marks will be 2 x (3+3) x 0.5 i.e. 6
  4. Content = 3,
    1. Then min marks will be 3 x (1+1) x 0.5 i.e. 3
    2. Then max marks will be 3 x (3+3) x 0.5 i.e. 9

This will help candidate get an objective idea about his/her answer quality and see which aspect of answer is weakest.

  • Tips on value addition
  • Personalized attention
  • Help students in improving 1-2 marks in each question

  1. Why 10Qs per test, and not full length tests. Also, if i send full paper of other institute(with full 20Qs), then it is taken as two tests?
    I know the purpose is not quantity, but quality feedback and improvement, still this clarification would help.

    1. 10Qs are enough to understand writing skills and level of improvement. However, it is not fixed and if we get more such requests from candidate, we will increase it to full length tests.

      For now, 1 Test = 10 Questions from anywhere. In case you are sending some other institutes full length paper, you can let us know which 10 answers to review.

  2. Thank you sir for bringing this innovative initiative .. baki coaching wale sara paisa le lete hain pehle hi aur fir feedback dete nai .. last year I had joined Vision Mains Test Series … I could write 3-4 tests only .. sara paisa waste chala gaya ..
    I will be joining this initiative for sure ..

  3. Hey, What about ethics tests? How much would you charge for evaluating 6 case studies and remaining questions?

  4. Is there any option for discussion to be face to face or on video calling?
    Please reply if its possible

  5. Sir,i am targeting for Mains 2018….should i join your QEP MAINS Programme?
    CSE 2018 will be my first attempt.
    Please suggest

  6. Is it possible to join QEP Mains 2017 Programme for working professional?
    Can i give tests in Evening hours?
    Please reply asap.

    1. We take about 1.5 hour to evaluate 10 questions. This is needed to give quality feedback. There is a limitation to answer checking. It takes time. That is the reason most of the coaching are not able to give quality feedback.

      Also, You join a Test Series with 25 tests for say 18k. But, you will never be able to write 25 Tests due to one reason or other. Hence, don’t calculate costs on this basis.

      Hope you understand.

      Hi Rashi
      Insights is starting 70 days ethics plan in which they would provide for both the source and questions based on it.
      I think it’s good to follow.
