7 best YouTube channels for UPSC

The world has witnessed unprecedented technological advancements in the past two decades fueled by the internet, and the education sector is keeping at par with the tech world. Major players like Byju’s and Unacademy, among others, have successfully been able to penetrate the education ecosphere online. These services offer study materials and courses for UPSC preparation, one of the most competitive exam.

However, popular social media platforms like Telegram and Youtube also offer educational resources. Here, we are providing a list of YouTube channels that are important for civil service preparation. A word of caution — Civil Services require fewer resources and more analysis. We advise the aspirants to go for selective channels as it’s not about how many channels you follow but how much quality information you’re able to grasp, process and analyse.
