Data
In God we trust, rest all must bring data.
A seemingly average answer often stands apart from the bunch of copies with the use of one single thing- Data. The importance of data and figures cannot be emphasized more.
Though it is a part of Step III in the Acads quad, but it is one step that has direct 5X returns in your answer quality, knowledge and above all confidence!
Acads brings to you Data course whereby data, facts and figures from sources like Budget, ES, India @75, PIB, PRS etc. will be compiled at one place, arranged subject and topic wise for ease of application in answers.
For instance, take a look on data on Urbanization:

The above data is sufficient to be used in a variety of questions on urbanization. Data points for other topics will be provided in a similar fashion to our learners.
Definitions

One of the easiest way to fetch extra marks in descriptive is to make your answer multi-dimensional.
E.g. In case of poverty, while defining the term, divide definition into material and non-material dimension [1st D - Definition]
Supplement it with data [2nd D - Data]
Finally, finish it with Committees, Constitutional Provisions and readymade conclusions from Acads Descriptive Booster course.
Case Study and Best Practices
Aspirants are often told to collect snippets from the news to incorporate Best practices/ case studies to enrich answers. But often:
• The data is either not collected, or
• If collected, it remains hidden in a silo, facing problems of integration.

Thus, Acads will help you cover these aspects in the most efficient manner by providing best practices and case studies, relevant from exam point of view at one place. These will be updated in a topic wise segregation to ensure higher retention and correlation with the static concepts.

Codes and Mnemonics

This is undoubtedly one of the most favourite section of most aspirants. After all who doesn't enjoy learning with a bit of fun!
At Acads, we have always strived to entertain our aspirants while ensuring that what they learn remains with them forever. Please understand that in the exhaustive journey that taking Mains exam is, one cannot expect to magically recall all 10 points related to a concept. Please remember, more than knowledge, those 3 hours become a game of time, calm and resilience.
In this course, mnemonics from all the courses will find place at one location. This will become your most handy solution for the final leg of the revision before Mains.
Conclusions

You must have a list a 10-15 generic conclusions which you can modify as per the demand of the questions. Let us illustrate this with some examples.
Conclusion must be balanced, optimistic, forward looking and without any obvious shortcomings.
Conclusion Number 1: 1. With the right mix of accelerators – including regulatory frameworks, educational ecosystems and government incentives – India can lead the XYZ while simultaneously enhancing the quality, equity and sustainability of its own growth and development outcomes.
This you can use in most of the topics in education, health, entrepreneurship etc.
Conclusion No 2: No doubt, XYZ is a welcome step. However, the government should also focus on core issues of ABC, DEF in order to make the initiative successful
e.g. 1 Women reservation is a step in right direction, However, it must be complemented with reforms addressing the core issues of discrimination, declining sex ratio, plummeting Women labour participation etc.
e.g. 2 Lateral entry is a step in right direction. However, government cannot ignore the need for core civil service reforms, including, but not restricted to, protection from politicisation, partisanship etc.
