11 Tips to remember while join coaching institute for IAS

Are you going to join Coaching Institute for IAS?

11 Tips to remember:-

1) Do not get swayed by Brands

Because -> the teachers there may be sub ordinary who thrive under the name of brand.

2) Do not get swayed by the advertisement claiming 5 in top 10, 26 in top 50, 62

in top 100 and a total of 3167 selections and…………

Because -> in more than 90% of cases statistics are manipulated or manufactured altogether.

3) Don’t get swayed by claims like best study materials and notes

Because -> if they don’t teach you properly, notes will be useless.

4) Don’t get swayed by glorified seminars boasting of the presence of former Secretaries, DG police, Judge or toppers

Because -> they come very often for marketing only. Further, they can be a pathetic teacher with no idea, energy and willingness to see you through.They lack that rigour to work with you with a missionary zeal. They are not the ones to teach you on sustained basis.

5) Don’t get swayed by offer, discount and other hospitalities

Because -> this is a matter of syour career.

Remember, good teachers and doctors are costly but bad teachers cost more.

6) Do not join the branch of even reputed institute as far as possible

Because -> most of them are there for brand encashment and their best teachers teach in the main centre only. They don’t give you much time and attention which you deserve.

7) Do not get swayed by claims in terms of academic degrees and places like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata or London, California ……….

Because -> Good teachers are not the monopoly of any place and ability and skill related to teaching do not always converge with academic degrees as far as India is concerned.

8) Do not get swayed by the infrastructure like campus, library, online facilities, AC hostel, canteen and other gratifications

Because -> all such things will be totally useless if teachers are not the best in their respective domain.

9) Do not seek the advice of any tom, dick and harry regarding what to do.

Because -> an ignorant, stupid and distressed person cannot give you correct advice, he will pass on to you his own prejudices and wrongful presumption.

10) Do not get swayed by the common belief that Coaching institutes are there to make money only with mechanical approach

Because -> black sheeps are there in every profession. Some Coaching institutes have brilliant teachers who can teach you in 6 months what tens of University teachers put together cannot teach you in three long years.

11) Do not harbour this idea that you ,being a mediocre student, make it to IAS

Because -> the present syllabus has largely brought a level playing field amid different streams and the questions are designed to check not only your formal knowledge but also your attitudinal response.
