which one is better study iq vs unacademy for UPSC with WBPCS ex.
StudyIQ and Unacademy are trustworthy platforms for any entrance test preparation. However, StudyIQ has better content, uniform teaching techniques and enthusiastic coaches who help students learn better and faster. Everything is taught to view more as a story than as a syllabus, which helps in making learning easier. For UPSC, everything is updated monthly, and the cost of courses are lesser in comparison to Unacademy. Often students have given Study IQ positive feedbacks as one of the main features of the platform is that students can study at their own pace, in their own time and still come out on top.
