What is included in Online Foundation Course? (List)

A to Z Support for Prelims, Mains and Interview

What is the Exact number of Videos for each subject in Foundation Course?

Some basics related to video lectures:

Video Duration of Each Lecture Roughly around 3 hours
How many times can we watch the video? Unlimited times (No limitation of hours!)
Can we download video? No. There is no provision of downloading video even inside portal

Exact number of videos in Vision IAS Online Coaching varies from batch to batch. But I am telling the total number of videos included in my Foundation course which was conducted in 2021-22 (So that you get a tentative rough idea!)

Subject Total Number of Videos 
Polity and Governance 45-46 Lectures
Indian Economy 47-48 Videos + 3 Agriculture videos
Geography 45-46 Videos
Indian Mapping  8-9 Videos
Modern History 32-33 videos

Ecology and Environment 15-16 videos

This is example of few subjects. Similar videos also available for IR, Society, Internal security, etc

Vision IAS Online Foundation Course

Today we will talk about the ‘Vision IAS Online Foundation Course‘ (Most famous course of Vision IAS) which is the one-stop solution for all stages of UPSC Preparation= Prelims, Mains and Interview. But why am I calling it one-stop solution? Because it includes the following module:

Vision IAS Teaching Module:

Vision IAS Lectures

1. Class Lectures (Prelims+ Mains Integrated)

Most important criteria for choosing a coaching institute is the quality of teaching it can provide. Vision IAS has very high quality teaching staff (Especially Amil Sir of Polity, Aditya Kalia Sir of Economics) who teach as per latest demands of the exam. Topics of basic NCERT’s and Current Affairs are very beautifully integrated in the lectures.

Before joining Vision IAS Online coaching, I had given first attempt and my preparation was good. But after watching Vision IAS Lectures, I got a holistic view of how to think from multiple dimensions, how to interlink between the subjects. Actual exam oriented study is must if you want to see your name in the final merit list of the UPSC. So, except for environment, all other subjects were excellently taught by the staff and I can say that it will make you mains ready!

1A. Vision IAS Online Coaching Demonstration Video (How it Works?)

Watch actual video demonstration of Vision IAS Online Coaching Dashboard given below. After watching this 6 minute video, you will have birds eye view of Vision IAS Online Coaching.

2. Essay Enrichment Programme

Approach for GS and essay is completely different. The movement we understand this, we are in the journey to score good marks in essay (which plays a very crucial role in final selection).

You will get 5-6 detailed essay enrichment lectures along with 5 Essay Tests. 

3. Complete CSAT Course

Though major focus of this course is on GS, it does not mean that CSAT is not covered. CSAT Section also becomes crucial in UPSC Preparation because if you will not qualify CSAT, you will be out of the competition.

So, vision IAS has provided holistic teaching lectures for Maths, English Comprehension and Reasoning.

Maths Around 20 Lectures
English Comprehension Around 5 lectures
Reasoning Around 10 Lectures

In our batch, these lectures were not conducted live, but directly uploaded in our portal.

4. Monthly Current Affairs Detailed Lectures

Detailed video lectures of “Monthly current Affairs” have taken the preparation to all new level. In UPSC, even the core GS Questions have link with what has happened in current affairs over the last 1 year. So, having command over the current affairs help us to increase the prelims score drastically.

And no need to talk about importance of current affairs in Mains exam!

5. PT 365 Lectures

1 Subject of PT 365 is covered in 3-4 lectures of 3 hours each. This PT 365 Lectures 1 month before UPSC Prelims can be seen as cherry on the cake.

These PT 365 Videos help us to do the last minute revision of current affairs in minimum time.

6. Selective Topic Lectures with Mentors

1 Mentor is alloted for group of 15-20 students. This mentor also conducts some important sessions on zoom meeting to guide aspirants, help them to resolve there queries related to exam.

For example: How to analyze Previous year question papers, How to start Mains answer writing, etc

7. Vision IAS Class Notes Review

Most underestimated notes in UPSC Preparation is “Vision IAS Notes”. I am not saying because it has something new which other sources don’t have. Only differentiating thing of Vision IAS Notes is its awesome structuring. It contains basic concepts followed by all detailed information of that topic followed by previous year questions asked from that topic and mains questions from that topic along with detailed solution.

Vision IAS Notes= One stop Solution for GS+ Related Current Affairs + PYQ’s + Model Answer of Mains
