Since childhood, we all have come across that one phase in life where we decide to be a civil servant. After all, what could be better than serving our very own nation? But for many, the path to apex seems hazy. To help those in quandary, the TRAINING AND PLACEMENT CELL of the varsity conducted a seminar on “Administrative services as a career option” in collaboration with one of the most reputed IAS coaching institutes, ‘CHANAKYA IAS ACADEMY’, on the 29th day of January at the University auditorium.
The seminar started with words from the most revered professor, Dr P. Nanda. Later, the representative of CIA gave a motivational speech to the exuberant youngsters. He gave special emphasis on the importance of self introspection for the preparation of administrative services examinations. According to him, College is the best place to start civil services examination preparations, as with all the energy of the young age and the sharpness of the students’ minds, the just-out-of-college guys have higher probabilities to clear civil service examinations. Further, he elaborated the entire UPSC syllabus and marking scheme for the examination. He further explained everyone about the categories of the civil servant and ways to get a good score in limited number of attempts.
Unless the preparation is focused on right guidance, the attempts may turn futile. Therefore, towards the end, he urged the students to enroll themselves in the ‘Chanakya IAS Academy’, which would help groom their skills. The 2 hours long seminar ended with taking feedback from the already motivated students.
