Our primary objective is to provide dependable guidance for candidates preparing for the Civil Services Examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission, with a view to enable them to secure their cherished career in life with affordable cost.

The system of examination requires a candidate to prepare an Optional subject, of Honours or Post-Graduation standard which he might not have studied as a part of his curricula at his Graduation and Post-Graduation levels. This calls for a completely new orientation of preparation on the part of the candidate to qualify in the Civil Services Examination which is entirely different from the traditional university-type of examination. Consequently a candidate just after passing out of an university does not comprehend clearly what is expected of him to qualify in the Civil Services Examination. He is not in a position to select a new optional subject which will suit both his personal aptitude and the chances for securing higher marks in the Civil Services Examination. The choice of subjects is very vital issue. This is where a candidate needs the help of a professional educational Academy specializing in the Civil Services Examination.

Keeping in view the difficulties a candidate is likely to face when he decides to sit for the Civil Services Examination, we not only offer useful guidance to candidates but also help them in the selection of proper optional subjects.We have designed our system of guidance in such a way that it would bring out the best in a candidate so that he could compete successfully in the Civil Services Examination.
