Nishat Sir’s Maxims: Methodology, Philosophy, and Approach

Nishat K Singh’s teaching philosophy is grounded in practical wisdom and a deep understanding of the UPSC’s expectations. Here are some of his key maxims that guide his methodology and approach

  • “Score depends not on your knowledge but your writing skills; knowledge should be like the 6th attempt but write up should be like the 1st attempt.” 
  • “Examiners check vertically not horizontally.” This highlights the importance of structure, meeting demand of the question, and mastering the art of answer writing
  • “Anyone can learn and score exceptionally high marks.” Nishat sir believes that Sociology is an approachable subject that can be mastered by anyone with the right guidance and effort.
  • “You have not understood the concept if you can’t explain it to a rickshawallah.” True understanding of a concept is evident when you can simplify and explain it clearly to someone without a background in the subject.
  • “Understanding comes with thinking in lone time – keep time for yourself.” Nishat sir advocates for dedicating time for solitary reflection and study, which helps in deeply internalising and understanding concepts
