This Self-Study Platform for UPSC, Is Helping Aspirants Complete UPSC Syllabus 2X Faster

“Information, notes, videos – there’s plenty of all of this out there, but what students really need is a plan of what to do and visibility of their progress,” says 27-year-old Nishant Shukla, co-founder of Allahabad-based Geartron Technologies, which runs and owns test prep platform, Examarly. Examarly is a self-study platform that focuses on outcome-based learning for higher education and test preparation. The artificial intelligence empowered platform, Examarly makes personalised study plans for individual aspirants based on an initial placement test that optimises the preparation path leading to 20% score improvement and 2-3 times faster covering of the UPSC syllabus.

Examarly’s Outlook for UPSC Preparation

Being IAS aspirants themselves, the founders realised that there are plenty of reading resources available online either paid or free of cost in the current time. Usually, aspirants pay heftily for availing content, i.e. reading material/video lectures/coaching, which they can easily get for free. Hence the availability of quality content is no more the problem faced by aspirants.

“It is a challenge for an aspirant to choose the right reading material among the thousands available in the market and to be able to complete it thoroughly within the limited time. Even if they happen to choose and read it, knowing if one is reading every topic in optimum breadth and depth required for UPSC is another big challenge.”- says Nishant Shukla, an IIT Grad & Founder of Examarly.

Facing this problem themselves, Sushant Shukla, Co-founder of Examarly, then proposed dividing the entire syllabus of UPSC into multiple micro-plans. Dividing the entire syllabus, which is very vast, into micro-plans, makes it easier for the aspirants to complete it in one sitting. Tests based on the micro-plans ensure if the topic has been covered thoroughly in optimal depth as per the UPSC requirements, and aspirants can move to the next topic-based micro-plan.

The Successful Trial

In the initial trial of the outcome-based product, the Examarly team optimised the daily preparation schedule for the users by providing them with daily micro-plans and testing them on those topics upon completion. During the trials, the Examarly team found that the aspirants following the daily plans with consistency could cover the vast syllabus 2-3 times faster than normal. It showed more than 20% improvement in their scores within a small period of time. The successful trial has strengthened the idea and led to developing an AI-empowered app-based product, Examarly.

Examarly’s NO More Content Approach

It is common in the UPSC market to provide content to read. In fear of missing out, aspirants go behind availing more and more content, overlooking the fact that it’s the right planning, self-study, and consistency for year-long UPSC exam, which are key to its preparation. They focus on adding more reading materials to their shelves instead of consolidating them and end up being confused and wasting their precious time.

“We are conscious of the fact that we don’t want to add to the confusion of students by giving out more content. Our focus is on only making personalised planning as smooth as possible and keeping the students on track throughout. Till now, the results have been amazing, and we want to continue improving and helping more students do a lot more in less time,” shares Ishan.

How Can Aspirants Use Examarly to Aid their UPSC preparation?

UPSC aspirants can use Examarly App to plan their daily targets, identify weaker areas of their preparation, and target score improvement in that particular topic or subject alongside tracking their progress. The process begins with aspirants taking up Examarly’s assessment test, which determines whether the aspirant is required to start from scratch or is in between the journey and lays out the path accordingly.

  1. Take a look.
    Washington’s message was that it’s wiser to be upfront and deal with the consequences.
    He’s earned that title because he’s authored dozens of aphorisms.
    Today, calling someone a Jack of all trades is usually a jab because it implies that their knowledge is superficial.
    So my advice.

    See the difference.
    This famous motto highlights the truism that life is full of ups and downs.

    Take this proverb, for example.
    It reminds us to take precautionary measures, so we don’t end up with bad results.

  2. What am I referring to.
    We’ve all probably had to learn that the hard way.

    It originally read, Count not they chickens that unhatched be…
    The part in Star Wars where Yoda says, There is do, or do not.
    Picture of Benjamin Franklin and a caption that says “Aphorist Extraordinaire”
    Shifting gears a little, let’s talk about one of the world’s greatest aphorists – Benjamin Franklin.
    Now you might be asking.
    Build a storyline around that saying.
    Practice what you preach.
    Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
    The original dictum said, A penny spar’d is twice got, but it’s adapted over the years for modern English.

  3. If you do, you agree with George Herbert’s famous aphorism from his book, Outlandish Proverbs.
    Speaking of being safe, that’s another aphorism example that you’ve probably heard before.
    Remember that.
    Have you ever felt frustrated when other people didn’t meet your expectations.
    It’s easier to do it yourself rather than try to explain it to someone else.
    It meant that the person was versatile and adept at many things.
    But there’s no certain magic to sprinkling aphorisms into your writing.
    But one key difference is that for a phrase to be truly aphoristic, it needs to be a short statement.
    Proverbs, on the other hand, can be much longer than aphorisms and adages.
    Here’s a classic Japanese saying for you.
    Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.
