Dear Student,

InsightsIAS is thrilled to announce the conduction of a scholarship test on 20th June 2024 for our groundbreaking Foundation Course for UPSC CSE: OGP (Offline & Online Guidance Program)  2025 in Hyderabad– a city steeped in history and culture, known for its rich heritage, delectable cuisine, and warm hospitality. We will offer attractive scholarships to aspirants aiming to excel in the UPSC Civil Services Exam. This initiative provides financial support and encouragement to deserving candidates, enabling them to access quality education and resources.


InsightsIAS- an institute that is known for simplifying UPSC IAS Exam preparation, has become a pioneer in the realm of UPSC CSE Preparation with its path-breaking initiatives.  InsightsIAS was founded by Mr. Vinay Kumar G B with the noble intention of providing accessible, inclusive & quality guidance to every single aspirant. His motto is to mold students into well-rounded personalities, who will contribute to society and serve the nation. He has ensured that the institution is built on a strong foundation of values and oriented towards results.


Over the years, the OGP has consistently nurtured and guided numerous aspirants to secure top ranks, including All India Ranks 5, 24,25,27 and 31. Our innovative Foundation Course: OGP(Offline & Online Guidance Program) for  UPSC CSE 2025, is suitable not only for those who are embarking on the UPSC IAS preparation journey for the first time, but also for experienced aspirants



“I am an OGP 2021 student. Insights IAS & Vinay Sir played a significant role in my success. When I entered preparation I had no clue, but at Insights IAS- the institute gives you enough resources, if you use them wisely & strategically you can clear the exam. Vinay Sir’s guidance for the Essay Paper, in which I scored good marks, was very good. His  interview guidance also helped me improve my communication skills.” Avinash (AIR-31 in UPSC CSE 2021, OGP 2021 student)
“I must place on record my most sincere gratitude to the entire InsightsIAS team, particularly Mr. Vinay Kumar who had been a true bedrock of support. He was extremely patient and would review my writing with feedback on improvements. Without his guidance, and others at InsightsIAS like Mr. Sudeep Kumar, I doubt I would have managed to clear the exam.”– Jeydev CS (AIR-5 2019, OGP Student)



The Civil services examination is considered to be a tough nut to crack. Lakhs of candidates appear for the prelims exam, a few thousand (around 9-11k) write mains, and a few hundred clear the interview stage. But let’s not waste time thinking about our chances of clearing this coveted exam. Instead, let’s focus on HOW TO CLEAR each stage.


There is a common thread that binds most successful aspirants- SYSTEMATIC PRACTICE, the RIGHT GUIDANCE, and HARD WORK. Having guided several hundreds of toppers successfully for nearly a decade((Nandini KR AIR-1Jeydev CS AIR-5Avinash AIR-31click on the names to read their reviews of InsightsIAS), we have understood the demands of this rigorous exam and devised several initiatives that will empower an aspirant to crack the exam easily, provided they put in the required efforts consistently.


To all those embarking on this journey for the very first time: the UPSC CSE is conducted in three stages – Preliminary, Mains, and Interview. Each stage differs in the approach needed to tackle it successfully. This exam requires the right strategy to clear it at the earliest; It is not merely about your brilliance or memory power. We have seen many talented individuals- fritter away their attempts due to a lack of the right guidance and strategy. The huge competition coupled with the vastness of the syllabus, makes it challenging for an aspirant (especially a fresher) to adopt the right strategy for the exam.



Abraham Lincoln said, “If I had five minutes to chop down a tree, I’d spend the first three sharpening my axe.”

Undoubtedly, every serious aspirant spends a lot of time studying but often fails to find a program that aids in sharpening their preparation (AXE) that has the potential to give them commensurate returns. OGP 2025 will help you sharpen your axe to achieve your goal at the earliest.

To fulfill your goal of clearing the exam, we have designed a Holistic and Intensive Classroom program. It is a full-fledged foundation program for UPSC CSE (Prelims + Mains + Interview) which keeps you occupied for 6-7 months.


Our entire strategy for the classroom program is driven by the unique EQUIP strategy.

What is the EQUIP Strategy?

E – Explanation of Basic Concepts by faculties

Q – Quest: A mini-test comprising of MCQs and Mains Question- to help you apply the acquired knowledge

U – Understand: The best form of understanding will be to internalize knowledge gained and enhance retention through test discussions after every class

I – Interact: Real-time interaction with teachers contributes to qualitative learning with instant clearance of doubts

P – Perform: Taking tests once every week and fortnight, will ensure that it becomes a part of your routine, preparing you to perform well in every test without the usual accompanying jitters
