UPSC is an iconic institution. It was established 92 years ago in 1926. You have to understand very clearly that it can see through superficial knowledge gained by reading high school level NCERT books and G.K. guide books.
There are no shortcuts to success in life. The UPSC Civil Service Exam is one of the toughest Civil Service entry exams in the world. You have to first develop the capacity to read widely and comprehensively across all disciplines.
More than 10 lakh aspirants register annually for this exam. Out of them, just about 6 lakhs actually do appear for the Prelims. But, only about 14,000 clear the Prelims. This is about 14 times the actual number of Group ‘A” vacancies advertised.
Out of the 14,000 aspirants who appear for the Mains, just about 4000 aspirants- 4 times the number of actual vacancies –would be called for the interviews. One out of four will make it. It is indeed a tough journey.

Even though the coaching for the optional subject for the Mains would be started by us in October this year itself, the fees of Rs. 20,000/- need be paid, in just two installments, only after you have actually cleared the Prelims. This will help you.
Once you clear the Mains, you would get about two months to prepare for the interview. It is only at this stage that you would have to pay the balance amount of Rs. 10,000/- before the coaching is started for the same and continues till interview.
