It’s a dream for any UPSC aspirant to clear the exam in first attempt. I feel very fortunate that I happen to be the one. To clear civil services exam, you don’t need to mug up or prepare for years. You have to believe that you can do it if you follow the right path. I found my guide in form of Rau’s. Rau’s will empower you with right knowledge and give you everything that you need to build a strong foundation so you need not worry. Just put trust in your teachers because they are the ones who know you well, apart from yourself. During the course of my preparation, I regularly read Focus magazine. Focus is very good. It’s an appropriate sized magazine with a focus on current affairs. I never missed it during my entire preparation of one and half year.

I really can’t thank Rau’s enough because when I came to them I was so confused and so underprepared but I got such good guidance and detailed feedback that I could take my preparation forward and I think I have done well. I owe Rau’s IAS a big thanks.

My mother was a student of Rau’s IAS to prepare for the Civil Services Exam in her days. It is she who recommended me to join the Study Circle. I want to thank my Alma Mater for all the guidance, direction and support. To all the students at Rau’s IAS, you’ll be given a lot of reading material and handholding wherever required, Use it! You are in an institute that knows how to teach for IAS exam well, so utilise that! Use all the resources given by Rau’s like their foundation blue books, focus magazine, DNS, revision materials like compass books and QIP classes etc and make most of the time spent at the institute. I did it and here I am.

I learnt about Rau’s from my father. My father was a very close associate of Dr Rau and he used to always speak about Dr Rau with a lot of respect and admiration. When I came here I was full of questions and apprehensions just as you all might have before starting your preparation for UPSC. But when I joined I understood the syllabus, the basics and the direction for preparation. This institute has given me a lot, moreover it can give you a lot if you have the right attitude and appetite for knowledge. Be proactive.

My association with Rau's has been since June 2015 and have been a part of various programmes from GS Foundation, Optional, Mains test series, Interview mocks etc. I find Rau's very supportive and uniquely different from other coaching centers mainly because of the personal attention given to students and the way teachers and staff are available for help any time we need.
