See What UPSC Exam Topper 2017 Who Aced The Exam In Her 1st Attempt Has To Say About Her Time At Rau’s

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. To do that the role of the right of the right institution becomes important.

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.

To clear IAS what important is that you should be able to cover the syllabus and the important parts on time before the examination and should have done multiple revisions of that. Rau’s revision tests and mock tests help you revise your syllabus. I had opted for all the mock tests and revision tests and that helped me a lot. I wish that you’ll have confidence in yourself and learn in right direction to make your dream of becoming an IAS officer come true.
