This program is based on the concept of the Compounding effect. The compound effect is the strategy of reaping huge rewards from small, seemingly insignificant actions. Writing daily 2 answers may seem a very small task. But in the long run it will drastically improve your answer quality and help in clearing IAS Mains exam.

daily answer writing for upsc mains

Why this program?

UPSC is reducing the number of days between Prelims and Mains. For IAS Mains you have to prepare for 7 papers and the syllabus is vast. If you are not well prepared for IAS Mains before attempting prelims, your chances to clear IAS Mains are very less. So, do not waste your precious time. With this program you can cover the General Studies Syllabus within 21 weeks.

Only reading books and notes is not enough to score good marks in IAS mains exam. Following are main dimensions of High Scoring Answer-

  • Context
  • Structuring
  • Presentation
  • Introduction
  • Conclusion
  • Language Skills
  • Handwriting
  • Content

Most coaching institutions and students invest the majority of their time in developing Content i.e. reading more and more books, notes, PDFs. So, other dimensions remain neglected. With a daily answer writing program, we will help you to develop all dimensions.

With this program, you can cover the General Studies syllabus within 21 weeks. Program also includes 8 Revision tests.


Students will receive 2 Questions based on the sub topic of the day at 9AM daily. 

Then, students can attempt those two questions on a plain A4 size sheet of papers with margins on both sides or you can download it here.

After attempting questions, students should scan it as PDF and send this to telegram account or upscsupersimplified@gmail.com

Answers will be evaluated within 24 hours after you submit the answer.

Copies are evaluated by our well experienced team members, who earlier worked with various  reputed IAS coaching institutes. 

If you have any difficulty in answer writing, you can talk to mentors anytime.

Testimonials- What our Students Say


I joined Mains answer writing program with Upsc super simplified in January after giving a read to all basic sources. It proved immensely helpful in application of acquired knowledge. The small targets and planned schedule helped me in holistic revision. Weekly paper- wise schedule provided by the team was very comprehensive and simplified my efforts. On time reviews, coverage of PYQs, with micro details on where I went wrong, eg- using facts in introduction instead of the body part, clubbing points to save words, using keywords etc. has channelized my writing skills. I am highly thankful to the team for their dedicated efforts.

Mansi Tripathi

The daily answer writing program for those who are serious about clearing their mains . My past mains attempts couldnt get such mentoring . This program helped me about sticking to the demand of the question , writing crisp introduction and making the content more presentable .Still remember about the first day when i made a diagram and sir guided me how to draw it more legitimate .
This program made my mains preparation more stronger. Though I regret I joined it late .
Thank you sir and the team !

Binshad Ali

Daily answer writing program was very good. I exprienced improvement every day. Thanks for daily guidance.

Arunima Aggrawal

The Daily answer writing initiative of UPSC Supersimplified acted as an eye opener for me. It helped me realize my shortcomings with respect to the content of my answers, its presentation and the time taken to write them.
I could actually notice a change in my note making strategy in just a month’s time. I was now better equipped to know which areas of the topics I should primarily focus upon.
I would recommend everyone to join the programme, at least for a month, to inculcate in oneself consistency and discipline. Further, one would also get self-assessed as to where one stands in the preparation.


Daily answer writing program is really helping me to cover syllabus,everyday small targets can cover easily bcoz of it I came to know about my shortcomings and can see improvement in my studies and note making…
Thanku sir for your valuable feedback everytime….
