Student Speaks

Watch and Learn from the inspiring journey of Pujya Priyadarshini, a working professional in private sector, who maintained her work-study-life balance and secured AIR 11 in CSE 2018. Pujya was a student of Rau’s GS (Integrated) Foundation Batch.

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.

Pujya Priyadarshni, AIR 11, CSE 2018

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.

Vaishali Singh, AIR 8, CSE 2018
