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 2 answers daily 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.


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 17 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 18 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.



Students can either pay complete fees i.e. ₹7000/- for complete course or monthly fees of  ₹ 2000/ month only.

Testimonials- What our Students Say


“DAW program helped me to understand the demand of upsc and where i’m standing. Practising answers as per time rule helped me to formulate my own strategies for main. Model answers give insight on others’ preparation and what more to do to make my answers more good..the most important thing is that after seeing the weekly pdf i get to know that for most of the questions i know answers but i’m not able to present my knowledge up to the demand of questions.

DAW scheduling and question selection is appreciable. Sir you people don’t panic students by giving exceptional questions like other reputed institutes. This kind of approach will help students to gain confidence on what they studied… Overall your effort is highly beneficial for students. And i except this program after prelims also.. Thank you”


G. Meghna

Basavraj LC

” Sir , I’m impressed with your consistency ( one of the Major  things I would expect from any course ). 

You never missed a single day to post a question and also an evaluation.  One month course that I utilized was the best considering the difficult situation that I was facing . Thank you so much sir. 😊”


Navami J

“There was a time when I used to look at  questions and struggle to understand the needs of the question and sometimes the question itself. I am not still successful enough but now I am sure that I  have the confidence to face it. I don’t know what I would have done without this session of yours. My whole hearted thanks and gratitude. Whether I am in the final list or not.. I have improved a lot and questions are not intimidating me, so it’s a victory for me already. I am indebted to you. Thank you so much!!!”



“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 couldn’t get such mentoring . This program helped me about sticking to the demand of the question , writing crisp introductions 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 legitimately .

This program made my mains preparation more stronger. Though I regret I joined it late .

Thank you sir and the team !”


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 easily cover it. I came to know about my shortcomings and can see improvement in my studies and note making…

Thank you sir for your valuable feedback everytime….”
