ILP 2021 – A beacon of light in the Darkest of times!!!

“Achievers are not Kites which require push of winds; Achievers are birds who believe in their wings.”

In the 6th year of IASbaba’s journey, we take immense pride in the poster boy of IASbaba- the Integrated Learning Programme (ILP), not for its high popularity or success rates but for the fact that ILP is immune to crises and exigencies. We are happy that we designed ILP in a manner that neither did it necessitate brick and mortar classrooms nor did it require the students to come out of the comfort of their homes. A laptop/ mobile/ tablet and an internet connection are what you need to begin the journey of learning. What makes ILP unique is its organic design and implementation. One feels directly connected with the process. The modules talk to you, the tests tease you and the assessments make you improve. Each year, we add new features to ILP to make it more effective. You can expect many new and innovative features in this year’s ILP as well. Friends! A dose of ILP will help you in getting immune to the many challenges that UPSC will pose next year. Therefore, with great pride and satisfaction, we announce Integrated Learning Programme (ILP)- 2021.

We have been telling the students time and again not to depend merely on the last minute tools, some compilations or series (which UPSC tracks) and blindly trust them and finally end up wasting a precious year. Aspirants fail to realise that it is not the last minute miracle but consistent effort throughout the journey. It is the process that is important. It is the process that is sustainable. And yes ILP is that!!

Hitting the bull’s eye year after year: IASbaba’s journey so far

In the last four years, ILP has been bang on target with a hit ratio of more than 65%, a figure remarkably high keeping in mind the unpredictable nature of UPSC. With a knack of getting it right ILP has become a reliable name:

It has been done to prevent a candidate from wasting their precious time in going through the repetitive and irrelevant sources available in the market.
  • Revision- Due consideration has been given for Revision that will help to consolidate what you have learnt in a week’s time. Since the process is long and intensive, the lack of revision can be fatal. Therefore, we have given adequate room for revision and consolidation.

Please read -> IMPORTANT GUIDELINES FOR ILP 2021 on how this course is structured and how to use ILP Program effectively.

  1. Comprehensive Value Add Notes (VAN): With our value add notes (VAN), you will be able to declutter the complexity of UPSC syllabus. The VANs are high-quality specialised reading materials to give you an edge over your competitors. VANs have been designed intelligently to give separate prelims and mains focus pointers to make your understanding seamless and smooth. You need not look beyond sources other than the standard ones and our VAN.

For Example:

  • For Ancient History and Art & Culture, you need to refer ONLY two sources – New NCERT – Themes in Indian History (Part 1) and IASbaba’s Value Add Notes (VAN – which covers OLD NCERT R.S Sharma, Ancient & Medieval India by Poonam Dalal (McGraw Hill), http://ccrtindia.gov.in/ (website))

We have simplified the VAN covering all important aspects so that it can be your ‘One Stop Source for UPSC Preparation’.

  1. BABAPEDIA – One-Stop Destination of Current Affairs Preparation (Prelims + Mains):

We understand that covering current affairs is going to be a real challenge for many aspirants. Given the huge sources to refer to, n’ number of materials flooded in the market, most of the times students are confused about which sources to refer to? what to read? what not to read? to what depth to read?

Here comes Babapedia to your rescue. Babapedia is divided into Prelimspedia and Mainspedia for both your prelims and mains preparation. It is one of its kind compendium of current affairs.

Prelimspedia gets updated on a daily basis. You will never be required to do the drudgery of note making for current affairs. The only thing required of you is to log into your ILP account every morning and go through the precise and crisp current affairs notes updated daily on Babapedia! Isn’t that awesome?

  1. MIND MAPS for GS MAINS: There are several mental techniques to enhance your learning experience. One such technique is mind map which has been proven very effective to revise and retain the topics. The main reasons for this are –
  • It is pictographic.
  • It helps you to visualize an image rather than the paragraphs. This way you will recall it much easier in the exam.
  • It is crisp, so more information can be squeezed in a small space.
  • You wouldn’t require bulky notes before the exam to revise.
  1. ESSAY GUIDANCE: Essay is an important part of one’s preparation of Civil Services exam. Since it is not a subject per se, you can’t read and learn it from the book. The more you’ll gain information on the GS subject, the more equipped you will become to tackle an essay. In ILP plan, once a sufficient portion of each subject is covered, we will start your essay preparation. Guidelines will be provided to you on how to write an essay, and then mock essays will be given for practice. UPSC asks for two types of topics – a static/ factual topic and a philosophical topic. Approach for both is different and will be provided to you as part of the Program.
  1. ABHIVYAKTI (The Social Media of ILP) for Doubt resolution and Discussions: Each year we have a vibrant and engaging ILP community. Abhivyakti gives the ILP members a platform to get their doubts/queries addressed by IASbaba and peers and also initiate discussions/debates on important issues. You can shift your attention away from the time-wasting online forums that take away the sheen from your preparation.

It also includes a Buddy-System’ wherein students having similar Optional-subjects, College or background can form groups and have discussions (peer-learning)! This will not only help you in forming a good peer-group/study-circle but also in motivating each other to achieve your goals. This is a boon! Especially for students who are studying at home, working professionals who are away from the UPSC-preparation hubs’ so that you can keep in touch with your friends, stay motivated, be informed and accountable at the same time.

UPSC Preparation is a long journey indeed, close to 2 years until your results are announced. And you will realise why we have introduced this buddy-system. It will have its own role to play by keeping your spirits high throughout this wonderful journey!

    Now coming to the most obvious question –

    Now that I have enrolled (paid) for the ILP Programme, what should I do, since the programme starts only on 15th July, 2020?

    Firstly, there are two things you need to have trust on

    On an Ending Note:

    ILP will prove to be a game changer provided you are honest and sincere with the guidelines to follow it.

    The launch of ILP every year is rejoiced by the Civil Services Aspirants across India.  The reach of ILP and its success has crossed the boundaries of coaching. More than anyone else, the aspirants residing in the remotest parts of the country now feel that they have a chance to break into the top 10 rank bracket. IASbaba feels proud to have played a part in building this confidence.

    When you join our ILP-2021 programme, you will have huge expectations on us. On the similar lines, we too have a few expectations from your end like Complete Dedication, Consistency, Courage to “walk that extra mile”, Faith in our program, and a constant quest to be better than your previous self. There is no substitute for it!

    The biggest hurdle is to get over the mental block that – ‘I can do it’. Since you have decided to start your preparation, we congratulate you for showing faith in yourself. We can assure you that we will provide all sorts of help and motivation to you but it is you who have to run and win this race.

    We are the ship and you are the sailor.  We will make sure that the ship is strongly built to sail you through all the up’s and down’s in the journey. But finally it is YOU, the sailor who has to manoeuvre and reach your destination!


    We hope that this year too, ILP plays an even better role in the success of aspirants.

    So what are you waiting for? Come, join us and let us make you write your success story!

    We reiterate our AIM –

    “To help an aspirant preparing in the remotest part of the country to secure Rank 1”
