Question bank means is that the monthly compilation of CA, Static quiz and current affairs quiz that you usually come up with or seperate one which is specifically designed for this course?

Hi Sir/Ma’am,
I have two queries :
1. In Home Assignment, The 50/100/150 MCQs we have to decide and do it from somewhere. Right?
2. And, The full length test of 100 MCQs after finishing each subjects, will we get them on portal or that also we have to do from somewhere else?

Hi Shubham,

1. You can solve MCQs from the Insights Question Banks as they have already been segregated Topic wise or if you already have a repository of Questions, you can solve them as well. Ensure you practice well.
2. Tests after every subject as well as daily class tests will be available in your portal itself

Sure Sir. 

Thanks for the schedule

Hi Rohit,

Schedule for the course is available in the following link

We understand your concern. You can drop us a mail regarding this. We shall have a counselling and understand your preparation currently and then we will be able to guide you better.

Hello sir/mam,
 I was fortunate last year to get access to the booster classes they were indeed very helpful so I wanted to know if these classes are going to be same as booster classes or different ?

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback on Booster Classes of previous year
Although the Quality of Classes is same as booster Classes, APEC classes are going to enrich you more with discussions of previous years' Questions and more class tests and mentorship.

Last year , even during COVID and lockdown we successfully completed Quality Booster Classes. This year with APEC classes we would want to ensure that with CLASSES + TESTS + HOME ASSIGNMENTS + MENTORSHIP, an aspirant need to worry much about prelims. The Confidence with which an aspirant come out after classes and INSTA REVISION Plan will itself ensure less mistakes and high accuracy

Thank You for the response, Sir. 

Could we receive any exact timeline for the course. Apart from broad details like 3hrs a day and MCQ practice, etc, I couldn't find any.

Also, I believe these classes would be fast faced and I'm not sure how far they cater to beginners like me. There's an inherent risk of not getting broader context and proceeding with mechanical bits. Is there any option to check out few demo videos for the same. Could help to analyse whether they suit us or not. If Yes, I would opt in for sure. 

This is my 3rd attempt...I have joined subject wise test series from August...is this beneficial 

Hello,

Yes definitely. APEC intends to enrich your content, give you conceptual clarity , practice more and also ensure that you learn tricks to get that extra edge. With the help of a mentor you can easily identify your mistakes and weak areas and work upon this to increase your accuracy

Hi Sir,

I'm a beginner who has just started out with preparation since Nov'20. There's significant amount of syllabus yet to be completed and I may be not well equipped to understand Advanced Topics. Currently, I'm studying subject by subject along with Newspaper, MCQ and RTM practice from Insights.

I would like to seek your opinion about it. Should I continue to pursue my static syllabus or change my plan to entirely rely on APEC? Majorly, I'm aiming for UPSC 2022, although I would leave no stone unturned for 21. I'm hustling to give best shot at UPSC'21 too. 

Thanks

Hi Rohit, 

I would suggest to go for APEC, reason being - it will streamline your preparation. Due to daily schedules, classes, tests, home assignments, mentorship...you will push yourself and finish whole syllabus, getting exam ready. 

It will hep you in 2021 and 2022. Then you must take care of GS mains and optional....you will have an edge in your preparation.. 

Thank you sir! But even aligning the order would be of great help. For instance, since we have already studied Geography, Modern History as a part of STHIR it will be easier for us to parallely cover it from prelims point of view.

I will schedule a call with a mentor as well. Thank you

Hi Sir/Ma'am,

I have also subscribed to STHIR and its timetable is quite different from this series. I have been dedicatedly following the STHIR timetable.  Joining another programme with entirely different timetable will create a clash. Any possibility of aligning the time tables?

Hi Swathi,

Since we intend to complete the course by May(3months) and smoothly transition towards INSTA REVISION Plan, it wouldn't be entirely possible to align STHIR with APEC. However, you can drop us a mail to support@insightsias.com. We shall place a call from a mentor to you and check with your preparation and see to it that how you can mange both

Hello mam/sir,
                  How many times i can watch recorded videos?is there a limit on watch time of recorded videos?
                   How many devices i can use?is there any restriction on number of devices to be used?

Hi Abhi,

Yes for security reasons, you can login to your portal with only one device at a time and also we have limited the number of views of the recorded videos to 2

Hi Ashish,

We are taking your request/feedback. We shall look into it and announce the timings soon.

Hi Babru,

Irrespective of the course that you are in,  if you wish wish to enrich your content and solve more MCQs, learn the tricks and strategies and also strategize your preparation considering the trend, then APEC will definitely help you.

We have prioritized CSAT too considering the 2020 paper and also students' performance. Since you already have general understanding of CSAT, you can now focus on accuracy, speed and a few unconventional questions too, which would also be incorporated in the classes.



Ok, Sir, I got your point but I will be more comfortable with the live classes as a beginner. Please try to schedule the GS class timing in the morning if it's possible. Thank you.

What are the timings of the classes (both GS & CSAT)?

Hi Monika

Notification regarding classes will be notified soon.  But, yes you will be having access to recorded videos, which you can use to cover the topics

Hi Bheemappa,

Classes are so designed that you will get a sense of completion and boosts your confidence after every subject.
After the Class, Recorded videos will be available in the portal. In case, you cannot attend LIVE classes, you can watch the recorded videos. And in case you need any help/ want your doubts cleared,  mentors will be available .

Hi, Can we have the GS classes in the morning? It would be helpful for working professionals.

These classes are basic levels means...If any aspirants have not knowledge about subjects .then will he understand classes of APEC 2021 .or some previous knowledge backgrounds of subjects is required to join this course ..

As my concern I have No knowledge About history art and culture ...bcz i NEVER interested in reading history ... otherwise other subjects are good...

Hi Ratnam,

APEC classes will enrich your content. If you have completed other subjects except for History, you will be able to manage these classes. In fact you can very well enhance your knowledge and skills.
For history , you can find the road map to effectively finish the subject as it is not wise to completely drop any subject.
