Hello Friends

UPSC just announced the results of Civil Services Mains Examination, 2017 and with this, the anticipation surrounding the results is also over. The fate of over ten thousands aspirants has been locked by this PDF

We congratulate those who have found their names in this list and are all geared up for the next stage. We already have a lot many things in store for you. Go to the last two paragraphs of this write up to know about the plans that we have designed to help you cross the final barrier of UPSC.

For those, who couldn’t clear the Mains, we only have one thing to say- No Success is Permanent, No Failure is Fatal. Your success depends upon your efforts as well as your luck. Only and only you can decide whether it was your lack of efforts that cost you dearly or was it your luck that betrayed you! If luck didn’t favour you, nothing can be done about it except repeating your attempt with full energy. This is UPSC my friends! Almost a million appear each year to qualify this examination but only few hundreds qualify. To say that the rest didn’t put effort would be unfair to all of them. You do need a bit of luck to get going in this race and can’t do much in case your luck hasn’t been kind to you.

However, it is a saying that luck favours the brave. Don’t get too tempted to blame everything on luck alone. Identify the areas where you could have done better. Recognise your strengths and weaknesses, work hard for your next attempt and come out with flying colours. IASbaba is with you till you qualify this examination or you hang up your boots.

If you think that it was due to the deficiencies in your writing practice that dragged you behind, we have something to offer. For those, who can afford to come to and stay back in Bengaluru, we have the Connect to Conquer (C2C) Programme, designed specifically for those who want mentorship based assistance to polish their answer writing skills. The programme is already running and we have served few seats for candidates who wanted to enrol after the declaration of results. You can find the details of this programme by contacting us at [email protected]

For those who can’t come to Bengaluru, our flagship online answer writing programme TLP is already going on. We will have the second phase of TLP soon after prelims. Its a programme designed to give you daily targets in terms of coverage and also an opportunity t get expert feedback from IASbaba and feedback from peers. You can be rest assured about one thing- if you follow TLP religiously, you will be at ease during Mains.

For those, who have got Prelims blues, our flagship Integrated Learning Programme (ILP) and All India Prelims Test Series can be a  shot in the arm at this stage. After so much of efforts, you can’t afford to flunk Prelims this year. ILP gives you the cushion to remain in the race by letting you do smart work. ILP is still open for enrolment. For details of this programmeclick here.

Our final word to those who couldn’t qualify Mains this time is that you must never lose faith in yourself. Only you can win this race, if not this time then next time for sure! Don’t lose your heart over it and start afresh. Remember- every moment in the life is a fresh beginning! Is this moment yours?

Now, we come to those who have the final hurdle to cross- the Civil Services Personality Test. Before we tell you anything, let it be very clear that you have got a long way to go. Kudos to success but don’t let that overwhelm your senses. You have qualified Mains and so have a thousand others. Be focussed and concentrate on your next goal.

As you must be aware that we are already midway to our online interview assistance programme i.e. the Think, Rethink and Perform (TRP) initiative, you can dig in the archives here to get hold of developments till date. This is a self realisation platform where you explore your personality by asking simple questions to yourself and also hone your response on issues of national and international importance by discussing the questions we post from current fairs on regular basis. For details of this programme click here.

To help you more, we are pleased to announce that IASbaba would be conducting its interview workshops and mock interviews in Bengaluru and Delhi. The dates, venue and other details will be announced soon:

Wish You Good Luck
