India’s first online skill driven UPSC preparation module at SHAAN IAS academy . When a student join our class room programme in online mode our first objective is to help aspirant understand exam’s needs and himself through various online counselling sessions with faculty. After this basic exercise the aspirant and faculty both are better equipped to chart out preparation strategy on case to case basis, especially for working professionals. If any disconnect felt by online aspirant then he can call for a one on one online session with faculty directly. In this case,aspirant and teacher sit together in online mode to discuss the schedule of the student and accordingly give a weekly plan to each student. Online students had to necessarily share his/her record of the activities done in the day with the teacher so that the teacher can calculate the time taken by him/her for completing a book; time taken for them to understand and process the information. The teacher maintains an performance tracker of every individual student present online.Performance tracker keeps teacher aware about every student’s real time growth rate during the course of their online preparation.
Answer writing is a very important exercise during the preparation, keeping this in mind special exercise has been started by our institute, in which online students can submit their daily answers on our site. Faculty will review their answers online and send them necessary feedback daily.
As Shaan focuses on holistic development of every student since day one. Debates are conducted in both online and offline mode and form very crucial part of our preparation strategy. They are conducted in a way to make an aspirant ready for the interview. Debates are very helpful in improving one’s articulation of their knowledge, self awareness, spontaneous thinking and also work as a confidence booster specially for online aspirant.
