Being an R&D engineer and Manager by profession, I applied the same research and analytical approach in choosing the institute that I wanted to join for my UPSC preparation. And based on what is needed to succeed in this highly competitive examination and the performance track record, Officers IAS Academy was my preferred choice. The faculty, their experience, the weekly tests and the Test series are some of the factors that students experience when they study here. But to ultimately succeed, mere learning by itself is not enough, rather every aspirant needs proper guidance, an area in which this academy excels. So in the ocean called UPSC, your lighthouse is Officers IAS Academy.
Officers IAS Academy offers a blend of learning, inspiration and the application of enduring principles with the result that I get to learn something new with every interaction. The entire study environment makes it conducive for us aspirants to be focussed on our learning and preparation efforts, and it inculcates the spirit to stand out amongst the other talented and hardworking students. Another unique feature is the professors who impart quality education – never will the students find themselves in a situation where they are unable to grasp a concept, and in the rare event that they do, the faculty is always on hand to clarify and guide. The institute’s library quenches my thirst for knowledge through a sheer variety of books, papers, periodicals and the helping staff. I could not be happier in choosing Officers IAS Academy for my UPSC preparation.
Right from the portrait in the entrance that welcomes us aspirants every day, to the founding team that is comprised of former Civil Servants, the faculty who are all experts in their respective subjects to the personal guidance and unique Mentoring program – each and every aspect of the Academy inspires and encourages me to be a Civil Servant one day. And with Officers IAS Academy guiding me, I know that I will get there.
What attracted me in the very first place was that the faculty are former Officers themselves. Subsequently when I came for counselling and they patiently explained the Study Strategy that is sincerely followed, I was impressed and my confidence got a boost. But after meeting Israel sir and understanding how the Academy will help me crack the UPSC examination, I just knew that I had to become a student of Officers IAS Academy. Today I have the confidence that “Yes. I can do it!”.
It has been my dream to be a civil servant since I was a little girl, a time when I certainly didn’t have much idea about what it takes to become one. But as I grew up, that dream stayed on and finally I’m at a point where I am closer to achieving it. Like every other student I too researched many institutes before finalising my decision of joining Officers IAS Academy. Besides aspects such as a safer location which parents feel more secure in sending their children to, what attracted me was the faculty. The fact that there are IAS officers with vast amount of experience running the institute, many other retired officers and current officers being a part of the faculty and those who have a great deal of knowledge and experience with the understanding of how to approach a UPSC examination gave me, as an aspirant, the confidence in being a part of the institute.
