About Sulekha UPSC Coaching in Chennai

The UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) exams are considered the most demanding tests to crack. UPSC syllabus has no limits, so the aspirants can't pass this examination without a detailed strategy planned. UPSC Prelims, UPSC Mains, and the personality test or interview are the three main phases of UPSC. The prelims paper comprises objective-type MCQ questions, and the mains have a total of nine papers that are to be written in descriptive format. They consist of a mandatory Indian language, English, Essay, General Studies I, II, III, IV, and Optional I and II.

UPSC's third and final phase will be a personality test/Interview after prelims and mains. A competent board conducting these examinations will interview each candidate and analyze their skills. This face-to-face interview with the aspirants will examine their confidence level, awareness about current affairs, analysis capacity, etc.

The board will be geared up with a professional translator so the aspirants can choose to answer in their preferred language. The age limit for the aspirants to take up UPSC exams is between 21 and 32 years of age. However, people belonging to different categories will fall under different relaxation rules. An eminent degree from a recognized board of the university is a must for the aspirants.

" UPSC is considered as the toughest exam in India. So, it should be prepared with expert guidance. In Chinmaya IAS Academy,the each batch has limited number of students which facilitates individual attention. Faculties and advisors in Chinmaya IAS academy are very friendly and they help to clear all our doubts. Test and mock interviews are very standard in this coaching center which helps us in clearing the prelims and main exams. Materials provided by them are also very standard and they are updating it regularly. Classroom environment is very nice and suitable for concentrating in the lectures. "
