TIMETABLE: Mains Self Study Guide – 2016

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

As said earlier in few posts, we will be posting Mains questions along with Prelims tests series for free on our website. This is a bonus feature to show our gratitude to you. It is also a good strategy for you to follow if you are aiming to get a rank in 2016.

Along with prelims preparation, you will also prepare well for Mains (2016) by July 2016 if you religiously follow the timetable from the day – 1 itself.

We will be posting around 10 questions based on topics given in the timetable on the same day as prelims test in the evening around 7 pm.

We have already outlined strategy to be followed for 2016. We will again briefly explain you the same here:

The present timetable will help you prepare well for prelims from basics to advanced topics including current affairs. Because of integration of Mains topics, you will also be studying all static part of Mains syllabus. So the timetable mainly helps in covering static part of Mains syllabus along with complete syllabus of prelims.

The current events part is being taken care at Secure initiative.

We will also start CSAT initiative from mid or late February to make your preparation for prelims complete. This will be free initiative like daily current events quiz accessible to all for free.

Hence, if you follow the timetable + Secure  + CSAT (from when it starts) daily without fail, be assured of very good preparation both for prelims and mains. After prelims, all you need to do is revision and practicing.

In addition to these daily debates will help you in interview preparation. If you have participated in them, you will have come to know the usefulness of this feature. It helps in getting clarity on an issue. This clarity helps both in mains and Interview.

Of course there is daily current events and quiz (from Mid – November we will ask questions from that day’s newspaper) to supplement your preparation.

You just have to be consistent when you make up your mind to follow these initiatives. Please write daily at least 2 answers either in your notebook or on website. Don’t wait to know content first and try your hand at writing later. Start with easiest one for which you might already know soe answer. Slowly move to answer complex questions. If you wait to gain knowledge first and write later, the day will never arrive as there is no limit to gaining knowledge. So, please start immediately. This will definitely help you.

Regarding Timetable:

We have included two important books which we think freshers/experienced must read for Mains if you are preparing for 2016 exam. They are:

  1. Challenge And Strategy : Rethinking India’s Foreign Policy – Rajiv Sikri
  2. Public Institutions in India: Performance and Design – PRATAP BHANU MEHTA

We will be specifying specific chapters later. These books are in addition to other books which are commonly recommended by toppers.

For some topics such as world history, you can follow any one good source in addition to wikipedia or britannica. We suggest Norman Lowe’s book (It doesn’t cover all topics though)

During gap between successive tests everything is packed. Assume this as one year and final journey towards securing rank and give your 100% commitment.

Download Timetable

Note: Mains Self Study Topics are appended to the same Prelims timetable. We will modify it as and when need arises without affecting whole framework (to include any other important topics if they are important and necessary).

  • Diehard Insight Fan

    THANK YOU INSIGHTS. I believe, one needs to decide the strategy for every week and accordingly plan for this year-long journey. This initiative from INSIGHTS will help students to set up small small targets in order to achieve a big one. Another Great Initiative, as I always say.



  • kvlt_metchul_boi

    Hi, in the 2nd mock test of insights there will be questions on previous year papers of UPSC, CDS etc. Can you please mention which all papers (the years i.e.) we need to solve for this purpose?

  • vali

    Thank u insight

  • NiksforIAS

    Suggestion By IOI…….
    These Schedule might appear like lot to do every day. But it is
    very simple if you follow a disciplined timetable:
    Morning you can read The Hindu, reading current events and do Secure Questions.
    Afternoon devote time for Optional.(Sociology)
    In the evening prepare daily for next Test ie IOI prellims as well as Mains. Before going to bed, spend
    Two hours for Daily Debate, Lok Sabha TV/Rajya Sabha TV summaries and for
    revision of entire day work.
    Reserve Sunday for revision of entire week’s preparation+ little bit enjoy relaxationnnn……!!!!

    • Atul Sharma

      Thanks niks .. nice schedule.. at what time u sleep

    • IAS 2016

      When u start ur study in the morng?

      • NiksforIAS

        • IAS 2016

          thnk u so much

    • Kajal Kumar

      Nice routine frnd. Plz join me . How many portion of the syllabus u have completed yet? And when u have started preparation for cse 2016

      • Kajal Kumar

        My optional is sociology too. Plz tell me the name of book and author.

        • NiksforIAS

          Paper 1-First imprint whole syllabus on ur mind of GS as well as OPTIONAL + analyse questions..

          1.FOR first three chapter read it from -Aditya Mongra Sir Printed notes(DELHI)+Dharmendra sociology NOtes +Vikash ranjan books of paper 1.(They all are copy paste IGNOU so no need to go IGNOU booklet after reading u also get idea they just copy paste but they done good job bcz they deleted unneccesaary thingss…)

          ….Dont get confused or dnt fear how many resource read for first 3 chapters.. just read it selectively means for eg modernization concepts not in first two source but in Vikas ranjan book so first mugg up syallbus then u get idea what to read from where

          2.THINKERS again Aditaya mongras Sir notes + Dharmendra sociology.(More than enough)…..this is very important part of syallabus so read carefully if understand all thinkers then u can easily use all the thinkers in answers of paper 1 as well as 2…

          This are total 4 chapters of PAPER 1 so cover it first…,,after that i will tell u how to cover remaining syallabusss……….

          • Kajal Kumar

            Thank u sir. But I don’t have notes and not able to go Delhi. Would u plz help me and can u give me PDFs file of it. Plz

            • Kajal Kumar

    • sangeeta

      Could u plz tell me , study materials and notes same things or different.
      i mean to say that both consist same content or are called by different name.

      • NiksforIAS

        i didnt understand what u say………..

      • sangeeta

        Actually i want to clear that any institutional’s study materials and notes these two things are different or same.
        eg:- sociology notes and sociology study materials ( are same or different things).

        • NiksforIAS

          “Study material” is a vast thing we can say all materials releted to UPSC inculded in this term its may be books,printing notes,audio video like RS_LS debates etc……In “NOTES” contain handwritten or printed notes..Printed notes prepared by any individual or coaching walas using different reference book ..for eg VISIONIAS current affairs preparing using hindu,Indian express,PIB,LSRS etc…handwritten notes which is written by aspirant like us during actual classes or lectures……I think i try to express in layman language hope u clear,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

          • sangeeta

            This is wht i wanted to know, actually i asked for anthro vaidsir notes in the mrkt but they gave me stdy mtrial when i knew it is nt that wht i was understanding i again reached to them, so shopwala said “yehi notes hai hum yehi bechte hai” whereas i got it that was somthng else, dts why i thought to clearify myself by ur help.
            thanks for the info.

  • Atul Sharma

    Awesome initiative… i am fully with you insights team … being far from delhi pressure is on me to continue my preparation at home and all your initiatives have kept me going… thanks so so so much for this great effort… my greatest gratitude will be to you in my future success 🙂

      • Atul Sharma

  • Rabindra Singh

  • Atul Sharma

    “As said earlier in few posts, we will be posting Mains questions along with Prelims tests series for free on our website. This is a bonus feature to show our gratitude to you.”

    Sir your gratitude is huge relief for people like me who could not buy your course. Making prelims tests as free will help many aspirants. Thanks a lot. 🙂

  • Adrija Das

    I have a query……..Topics under world history have to be covered from which sources…..NCERTs??

    • Name_is_Bond

      Fr world history insights sugeests norman lowe + wiki + britannica

  • Adrija Das

    I have a doubt regarding answer writing approach……….before writing an answer is it advisable to read through the answers already written by your fellow friends……….does it widen your horizon of points or it narrows your thought process within a small boundary………if you can kindly help @Insights

    • BRK

      It would be better not to have read others answers because it will influence your own flow and thought process. If you are just starting out , you’ll be short of points regardless of the reference article to every question. But don’t worry. Keep taking notes. Issues recur and newspapers will provide different points on different days. Accumulate them all in your notes and you’ll have a atrong reserve of stats and fodder material in a couple of months.

      It’s your style of delivery and arrangement that you should bother about now.

      Write your own answers and then check others answers to evaluate how you can improve.

  • vignesh

    “If you wait to gain knowledge first and write later, the day will never arrive as there is no limit to gaining knowledge. So, please start immediately.” Thanks for this piece of advice.. You really saved me

    • Mannu

      It is difficult to start collecting word and sentences for answer for beginner student like me. But for clearing 2016 exam it has has has to do.

      Thanks Insight!

  • Mannu

    Hi Vinay sir & Team,

    Can you please interlink of Mains GS paper topics with this Pre+Mains 2016 Timetable so that all Subscriber or reader will get to know and confirm that all Mains paper topics will be covered under this umbrella. Please reply on this.

  • Sushipra

    Firstly I would express gratitude from the bottom of my heart to the complete INSIGHTS team(including behind the scene people along with even the aspirants who contributed even minutes of their time) for making this beautiful initiative possible and helping lot of aspirants fulfill their dreams !
    About the Mains Self Study 2016 assimilation into the timetable, I consider it almost sinful to be asking about any shortcomings which I feel, after so much effort put by you all, but still doing so because being a follower of your initiative I have the strong belief about your ideology of being open to accommodation of new ideas if they seem worth it. I would put it point wise.
    1. The preliminary exam syllabus and resources matches the Mains syllabus only around 50-60 %. So the mains additional self study syllabus seems to fall a bit short of completion.
    2. We were expecting the assimilation of the detailed Topic wise portions and most appropriate books/resources of the static part of Mains which had been documented beautifully in detail in the Paper wise Mains Exam guide under the IAS Preparation guide, in the complete self study timetable.
    3. The generalized topics have not been included,for which we have to refer a few sources like 2nd ARC reports, IGNOU notes, Pdfs provided by yourself other than newspaper e.g. Role of Civil Services in a democracy,Food Processing and related,Citizen Charters etc,Salient features of RP Act to name a few.
    4. Somewhere my personal feeling is that some missing topics could be accommodated probably by cutting down the time allotted to Post Independence Consolidation and World history part because they could and should be completed in a less amount of time along with a revision in between even if we allot 1:30 to 2 hrs daily for Mains specific study.
    5. Due to that the Ethics paper could also be included and practiced possibly in the last phase beginning June when the full length tests would be taken.
    It is our duty to cover up the remaining things and we would do that but the answer writing practice from the questions provided by you in the Mains Self study framework is a boon and syncing the remaining portions to the full timetable would become a complex task for us and even incomplete without the quality questions provided by you on the same. So it is my humble request to you to accommodate the missing portions and resources according to the detailed paper wise guide provided by you in the detailed timetable and if not possible then please guide us to devise a way to do that effectively.
    Thanking You again for the great work you are doing.

    2.Person should be SERIOUS one(who are ready to give his single minded devotion to our GOAL ie IAS) and willing to study in library at Dr.mukharjinagar who are preparing for 2016.

    3.Person who are diehard fan of insights and willing to follow insight test series(If person not yet given first test then no problem we will postpone date of that test and also i am not given that test so dont worry.) as well as all initiative of insights on daily basis like secure question ,rsls etc(CONSISTENCY is a key of SUCCES…)

    4.Person who have SOCIOLOGY as Optional so its better to integrate Whole preparation means we also add some syllabus of optional as well as ethics ie GS-4 along with schedule of insight test series so our optional and GS-4 also finish side by side.(I already prepare that schedule so i am ready to share in group so we all are on the same track ..Also in future we can make some changes(amendment ha h ha) as per our need .. dont worry SCHEDULE is a synthesis of flexibility and rigidity like our constitution so its don’t violate the basic principles which given in insights schedule of PRELLIMS and MAINS like whole syallabus of prellims and mains should b cover parallaly,writing skills, cover dailly currrent events ,cover yojana etc..thank u insight…..i Just added syallbus of sociology and GS-4 )

    5.Person should be honest with all members of group not a jealous one and believe in insight strategy so it helpful for all of us.means we allow healthy competition.

    We have very less time so please anyone who are really SERIOUS and who are willing to join us mail me on my mail id [email protected]…Thanking You.

    Hello Insights,

    The mains timetable doesnt contain references for topics like ARC report,Internal security etc.
    Also there are many sources which are mentioned in your IAS preparation guide for GS-2,3 which are not included in this plan
    e.g In GS2—>RPA –>you have mentioned reading Yogendra Yadav pdf
    Could u please clarify on this??

    @InsightsOnIndia:disqus Hii… I have posted this query multiple times on various pages and also mailed you thrice but got no response. I understand your busy schedule may be restricting you to do that, but it will be very kind if you could extract some time and answer it. My query ” I have enrolled for Offline Test Series Program. I will be only able to attend starting 4 tests offline. For rest tests, can you please give me online access to tests. ” Thanks in advance.

    Hey everyone!!! I was thinking of starting the preparations for the exam from January onwards. I wrote two mains two years back although could not clear them. So, obviously I am already familiar with some basics. The hitch is that I have a 9 to 5 job to tend to. Do you people think that 2016 is a realistic goal???
