IE Vs PRELIMS 2020

Difference between Newsbits, Editorials, and Articles

  • Newsbits: covers all news except editorials. Useful for prelims.  Click2Read
  • Editorials: covers only editorials. Useful for mains.
  • Articles: we select big-picture topics >> do deep research from multiple sources >> write in-depth articles. Useful for solving analytical questions in prelims, mains & even interview. 
  • Editorials & Articles are linked with newsbits topics so that you can prepare for both prelims & mains at the same time.  For example – in the below newsbits mindmap, we’ve covered the PENCIL portal topic and you can see there is a “Read More” link to the Child labour article. PENCIL portal is a small sub-topic of child labour. Child labour is a big-picture topic that needs to be analyzed across all aspects which is important for both prelims (analytical/tough questions) & mains. Thus, by preparing this way, you’ll get an integrated and holistic learning experience.
