AIR-432, CSE-2019

Nirvana IAS Academy is a one stop solution for the UPSC Civil Service Exams. Karam Sir, Wadhwa Sir and Ruby ma’am work tirelessly to ensure not only that the students are successful but also that they come out as better individuals and administrators. Nirvana IAS Academy provides personalized attention to each student. This type of investment in the students is priceless because this is very rare in the UPSC coaching industry.

The teachers have immense experience and they use this experience to guide and mentor the students. The mentorship provided by Nirvana IAS is simply unique and unparalleled.

Nirvana IAS Academy has been my home away from home throughout this journey. For prelims, this institute provides practice tests including CSAT. For mains, there are personalized classes wherein peer-to-peer learning is used. This helps the students compare ones answers to others and learn from each other’s mistakes. Emphasis is laid on answer writing and time management in order to complete the paper.

In terms of the optional subject, this institute makes the law subject accessible for students who are not from law backgrounds. Even for law students, the concepts become more clear without the burden of legal jargon. The law course, which is otherwise very vast, is condensed into digestible notes. The emphasis is laid on writing crisp answers. Multiple tests are taken to provide the opportunity to improve answer writing skills. Due to the above method of teaching, the students are able to tackle even the unconventional questions that are being asked nowadays.

Lastly, I would like to thank the teachers at Nirvana IAS Academy for the moral support. Given the unpredictability of the CSE as well as the steep competition, maintaining a positive attitude is very important. Nirvana IAS Academy provides an environment wherein every student is treated like family, their worries and apprehensions are listened to so that they grow as individuals.

All in all, the CSE is a journey worth embarking upon. And no matter which side you land up on, it will change you for the better. It will teach you perseverance, hard work, single minded focus and most importantly the value of learning from one’s failures. To whoever is reading this, just believe in yourself and all the very best for your endeavors.
