Free IAS coaching for Merit students.
Good news for students preparing for civil services, as Takshashila IAS Academy has announced free coaching for Civil services in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. An entrance test will be held to decide on ten students who will get discounted coaching fee with top 3 students getting free boarding, lodging and coaching. Students who have passed their graduation or equivalent degree with first division marks can apply for this test for only Rs.100/-.
Many students have asked this, and I still keep getting the same question again and again that, is it possible to clear the IAS exam without getting help from a coaching institute? The answer is yes, you can make it to civil services without coaching, but this might take more of your time and effort. In contrast, coaching is specially designed for students to grasp the exam syllabus in a short period and meet like-minded people with similar aspirations. The only drawback is that most of the IAS coaching institutes ask for hefty fees for their coaching programs. Now, if the coaching institute is farther from the place you are currently in, add up expenses for accommodation and food as well. On average, a ten-month course can cost up to 2 lakh to 5 lakh rupees which is a lot for a middle class Indian.
It is an excellent initiative taken by Takshashila Academy to support students based on the merit list. Hopefully, we will see other IAS coaching institutes bringing about such actions soon for less privileged students across India. The test will be conducted on June 9th between 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in two locations, one at Benz Circle campus in Vijayawada and other at the Skill Development Center near Sai Baba temple at Dwarakapuri Colony in Punjagutta, Hyderabad. To apply for the test before June 7th at www.takshasilaias.com and book your ticket to reach exam centres in advance. Apart from free coaching and lodging for first three rankers, they are also offering free coaching excluding hostel fees for 4th and 5th rank holders, 75% fee concession for 6th, 7th and 8th rank holders and 50 % fee concession for 9th and 10th position rank holders.
