The Integrated Course is our flagship and most sought after course, meant to guide an absolute beginner to success in the hyper-competitive UPSC examinations such as the Civil Service Examination and the Indian Forest Service Examination.
In an Integrated Course, you receive coaching for all the parts of the UPSC Examinations.
In an Integrated Course, we include the following.
- Coaching for the Civil Service Examination General Studies plus CSAT. The UPSC has made this Examination as a common first stage for both the Civil Service Examination and Indian Forest Service Examination. Due to a very large number of candidates appearing for this stage of the examination, the competition is very stiff. The candidate has to be prepared systematically and scientifically to clear this first hurdle. The cut-off marks are slightly higher for Indian Forest Service. This is because of lesser number of seats available for the Indian Forest Service. Therefore, an aspirant for the Indian Forest Service has to work extra hard at the level of the Preliminary Examination.
- Coaching for Main Examination General Studies. This includes all the four papers of Civil Service Main Examination General Studies. Among these four papers of General Studies, a diverse range of subjects are covered. They include Indian History, Culture, World History, Post Independence Indian History, Indian Polity, Governance, India’s Foreign Relations, Social Justice, Social Issues, Indian Economy, Role of Science and Technology, Environmental Ecology, Disaster Management, Internal Security and Ethics, Integrity and Aptitude. For the Indian Forest Service Examination, one has to cover one paper each of the General Knowledge and English papers. Together, these two papers carry the weightage of 600 marks at the main stage of the Indian Forest Service Examination.
- Coaching for optional subjects. For the Civil Service Examination, a candidate has to take only one optional subject. At present, we are offering coaching for 3 optional subjects for the Civil Service Examination. The subjects are: Zoology, Botany and Agriculture. For the Indian Forest Service Examination, a candidate has to take 2 optional subjects. For the Indian Forest Service Examination, Evolution offers zoology, Botany, Agriculture and Forestry optional subjects. Out of these subjects, the UPSC permits taking any combination but the combination of Agriculture and Forestry subjects are not permitted.
- Coaching for Essay paper for the Civil Service Main Examination. This paper carries weight is of 250 marks at the Civil Service Main Examination Stage and it plays an extremely vital role in one’s success. Although this paper is not a part of the Indian Forest Service Examination, we advise our students to attend classes for this paper even though they are preparing just for the Indian Forest Service Examinations. The purpose is to prepare our student exceedingly well for the English Paper of the Indian Forest Service Examination.
- Coaching for the interview. After clearing the Main stage for the Civil Service Examination or the Indian Forest Service Examination, a candidate is summoned by the UPSC for a Personality Test. It Is more popularly known as the UPSC interview. It has its own special requirements and a candidate needs to be oriented and prepared accordingly. We, at Evolution, have developed an extremely scientific approach to the UPSC Personality Tests. Preparation for this stage includes special classes by our core and visiting faculties. The visiting faculties include some of the recently selected and retired civil servants. After the classes, the candidate goes through mock interviews. We assess the candidate’s presentation skills, clarity and personality traits. We then give the student a detailed feedback for improvement.
