When should the aspirants begin their preparation for Civils?

Normally aspirants start for Civil Services exam preparation after their post graduation at around 22-23 years of age. It takes about 1-2 years to get proper understanding of the subject and examination pattern. By the time they succeed in the Civils examination usually they will be around 26-28 years.

However, if they decide on Civils as a career at an early stage while in Intermediate or Degree, it helps them to succeed in the Civil Services Exam in their first attempt so that they enter the services at a young age of 21-222 years, they will enjoy longer tenure in the topmost positions like Cabinet Secretary, Home Secretary, Chief Secretary, Director General of Police, Chief Commissioner of Income Tax and other such top posts.

To achieve this objective, for the first time in the country Sri Chaitanya IAS Academy was established to groom young minds by providing integrated Civils coaching along with intermediate & degree education. The Academy also offers one year intensive Civil services coaching for graduates and postgraduates
