"Anna nagar has became like a hub for civil service preparation so there are high possibilities for getting into traps by misleading advertisements. A one stop solution for attaining IAS one should need individual attention & personal guidance. They should know your both strong & week areas and couching institute should boost your efficiency & skill set rather misguidance. I AM AN IAS Academy is not a commercialized institute, which has limited students intake, Personalized Mentoship, Experienced faculties. Step by step approach 1. Prelims - PYQ Analysis + Concept Clarity + Orientation Based Test + Mentor-ship Value addition + Answer elimination techniques. 2. MAINS - Answer writing techniques & Methods + Personalized evaluation. 3. Interview guidance Program"

"Kavish IAS is definately the best place to study at if you are seriously aiming at Civil Services Exam like IAS and WBCS. It would not be an exaggeration to say that finally Kolkata has something to deliver in the name of serious Civils coaching. And I was lucky enough to get hold of this esteemed Institution. Would also like to add that though I did not get the opportunity to do offline classes with them owing to the pandemic the online classes they provided were far far better than other online classes I attended prior to that. The faculties and the teaching is just in sync with the syllabus and you definately feel confident after each session. The personalized mentorship provided by the mentors like Abhishek Sir is the reason why I enrolled at this place and I am very happy about my decision. They are available round the clock for their students and that is something aspirants need to keep them motivated. I would definately rate Kavish IAS as the best IAS coaching in Kolkata and would recommend all serious students to join it."
