Let us tell you why it is possible to hit 70 questions straight.

IASbaba has been recognised as a product innovator who came to the market
with ILP, and provided a person sitting anywhere in the world a chance at top
ranks in UPSC.

ILP is not merely a test series

It is a combination of micromanaged timetable (micro plan) with regular tests for


prelims , coupled with highly effective prelims capsule , the 60 day plan and TLP
for mains.

We built a new platform for ILP. It had forum in its own. That’s why there was
never a discussion of our ILP in any forums

We would like to add one comment which we received through an email

You guys are the APPLE of UPSC preparation

At this moment of happiness we would like to thank all our followers. In fact we
are thankful to them that they made us famous after which our ILP soared by
word of mouth to become India’s largest online learning UPSC experience.
