Is it important to take coaching to crack civil service exam?
The most important dilemma civil service aspirants face is whether they need coaching to crack the toughest exam. There are divergent views on this pertinent question. There are some people who argue that coaching merely helps you and it does not ensure a rank or success. They say that aspirants’ self study, consistency and the hard work they put in sitting at their study table matters far more than what you do in coaching classes.
These people say
that coaching constitutes not more than 25 or 30 per cent of your
preparation. They believe that Internet
truly democratized the information and
made it accessible in rural and remotest areas. Recently, a civil
service topper from Rajasthan said she entirely depended on Internet to gather
and gain knowledge instead of going to coaching institutes in Delhi.
But many have an
opinion that coaching and mentoring is a must to cope with psychological and emotional problems of the
aspirants. They say the coaching institutes create a community of aspirants and
friends from similar field, a place to grow, an atmosphere of dedicated
aspirants for group study and the centres help you find a mentor and motivator.
The human touch is most important and you get it at coaching institutes.
Whatever you do
great, whomever you meet great, they should have had a teacher in life. That
teacher need not be the teacher in school or college. It could be anyone ,
anywhere and of any age.
Academy Managing Director Dr BSN DurgaPrasad
says a decent coaching institute provides two most important things to
civil service aspirants. One is guidance
and another is knowledge. The Takshasila IAS Academy provides best coaching
classes in Vijayawada . It has experienced staff, awesome foundation,
incorporated preliminary and Mains testing and an undeniable library with round
the clock Internet. Personalized
attention on students, affordable fee and a fine success rate are the
other unique features of the academy, Dr Durga Prasad said.
