About IE Mindmaps


IE Mindmaps are the mindmap notes that covers current Affairs and the static syllabus of all the subjects – Polity, History, Geography, Culture, Economy, Environment, Ethics & International relations. Mindmaps are made through the reference from both standard and advanced books and internet for additional analysis. Read the article – How to remember everything you learn? to get an idea about Mind Maps and other memory techniques.

Note: IE Mindmaps are not only useful for UPSC exam but also for other competitive exams (general studies) such as State PSC, RBI Grade B, Bank PO, SSC CGL, NABARD, NDA, TET, CDS, AFCAT etc.

How it will benefit you?

  • Big picture – You can take in the bigger picture quickly and easily at a glance with a mindmap.
  • Better recollection – The visual nature of mindmaps allows for easier recall.
  • Simplification – Mindmaps allow for the simplification of complex relationships between topics.
  • Structured – Just like each and every object in the world has a structure, a topic that you are reading also has a structure. But the traditional paragraph based reading cannot show you the structure unique to each topic.
  • Quick revision – Every point is organized and linked in a way that enables quick revision.
  • Creativity – Your creativity will get boosted as you can get big-picture easily with mind maps.
  • Interactive – IE Mindmaps are interactive i.e., you can collapse, expand, navigate around and search for a particular topic inside the mindmap. This provides for the active learning process and you never get bored. It is not possible in image or PDF mindmaps. You can read it with any device (Mobile/Tablet/PC). No software is needed.
  • Lecture + Self-study – As mindmaps are interactive and each node is opened by clicking them = it seems like someone actually teaching you (= more focus) & you will also get the same efficiency as that of self-study in terms of learning/retention.
  • Updated – Unlike pdf/image mind maps, IE Mind maps will be periodically updated by us according to the changing needs of the exam.
  • Question paper-based – Contents in the mind maps were prepared based on solving previous years question papers (both prelims and mains) = high chance of success in the examination.

          Currently I am following only insights daily current affairs and the hindu editorial.But it takes a lot of time to read daily current affairs and editorial and after reading them making their notes.I have just visited your website and found it very unique and interesting in the way you have provided mind maps and some articles.And also the way you’ve described the three pillars on how to retain any information for long time is quite interesting and I found it very useful.I am also preparing for civils since june 2019 and want to appear in next year prelim’s.It will be my first attempt and I want to qualify it but I am very confused with time management as my 3 to 3.5 hours goes only to reading and making notes of daily CA from insights as it provides CA from the hindu,the IE,sometimes from down to earth and pib.I just want to reduce my time for current content by maximum 2 hours.Can you suggest me regarding this matter?

            Hi. Thanks for your reply.
            1) I have launched the Prelims CA mindmap initiative on Jan 1, 2020, after several requests by members and you. You can access it from this page itself. You don’t need to read any other source. We refer from – Hindu, Indian Express, Live Mint, India Today, PIB, Downtoearth, etc. to cover all prelims related news. You can read/revise all topics in a very short time with these mindmaps.
            2) For mains – refer IE Articles https://www.iasexpress.net/ie-articles/ along with your own reading of daily editorials in newspapers.
            Following the above strategy would radically boost your confidence as well as marks in prelims and mains exam.

    1-After joining the course, Is there any need to read NCERT+STANDARD BOOK or directly go through your content and study?
    2- Before using mind map ,is any need to read theory of any topic or directly jump on mind map and start study?

    • Santhosh Kumar

      1. If you have more time, you can read NCERT/std books and then read the mindmaps for concept clarity. If you have less time or you just to need to read/revise quicker, you can read only IE Mindmaps.
      2. You can directly start reading the mindmaps. No need for theories.
      All the best for your exams.
