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.
