Anyone can succeed in “Civil Services Exam”
“I prefer the term ‘Civil Servant’ to the term ‘Bureaucrat’ because it clearly spells out that the ‘Master’ is the ‘Common Man’.’’
A number of myths surround the civil services and the UPSC examination. Some believe that only those having an excellent academic record can get into it while some think that it is easy for students with professional qualifications such as engineering and medicine. Some even believe that if they join civil services, they will have to sacrifice their social life.
Israel Jebasingh, IAS, 2004 Batch who served with West Bengal Govt. for a decade, is now Founder of “Officers IAS Academy” and Chief Mentor, busts these myths.
After serving as an IAS officer for a decade, you quit the service and started Officers IAS Academy. Why?
I was fortunate to serve in backward Naxal-affected districts of West Bengal. I loved my work. LalBahadurShastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA), which trains civil servants, named me as ‘Effective Sub-Collector’ for two consecutive years. But when my mother was diagnosed with cancer during the later years, I decided to take a break from the service. I took a break for a year, and during that time, I got an offer to implement the prestigious PURA project which was the brainchild of Dr. Abdul Kalam. Once the project got over, the teacher in me awoke. I thought it would be a good idea to teach students who do not know how to prepare for the civil service examination as I also suffered for want of proper guidance & mentoring. So, I quit the service and started Officers IAS Academy in Chennai in 2013.
Is it necessary for an IAS aspirant to join an academy to crack the civil service exams?
NO, IT IS NOT. One can use the local government library and succeed in the exams.
The advantage of studying at Officers IAS Academy is the benefit of extremely good Pedagogy developed by us. Apart from self, Mr. Rangarajan, IAS, AIR 46, 2005 Batch are available every day to “Coach & Mentor” our students along with other faculties. We arrange for Guest Lectures by serving IAS / IPS / IFS officers and interaction with them keeps students on the right track & motivated. Our weekly test brings in the discipline of regular study in students and the feedback helps them improve. The study room facility provided by us gives students a place to study without distractions.
How should a student prepare for the exams?
In prelims, understanding of concepts is tested. Therefore, instead of studying by rote, candidates should put efforts in understanding concepts. In the mains, the writing capability of the candidate is tested because as a civil servant, one has to spend at least fifty per cent of his/her time in writing. Therefore, candidates should understand the questions and answer precisely with all the key points instead of beating around the bush.
