Anuj Singh, MBA, IIT Kharagpur, Founder of IQCIVILS IAS ACADEMY said in an interview with our correspondent that “We are overwhelmed and joyous at the thumping success of our current batch students who displayed hard work and commitment in their first attempt at civil services examination”.
Mr. Anuj further added that since APSC civil services examination pattern is currently similar to the existing UPSC pattern, high-quality UPSC level teaching helps students in cracking not only the national civil services examination but also assures selection in the similar state civil services examination which is relatively easier and more so because of the near similar syllabus.
Additionally, IQCIVILS IAS ACADEMY also provides meticulous coaching guidance on Assam-portion topics which are asked in the APSC preliminary and mains examination by previously APSC interview appeared faculties.
Mr. Anuj stressed on the importance of understanding the twin objectives of the Assam Government’s decision when they changed the APSC civil services examination syllabus in 2019 and made it almost similar to the UPSC pattern. Firstly, more number of candidates who have been aspiring for the APSC examination will now appear in the UPSC civil services examination as well due to the similarity of syllabus, thereby increasing the number of selections from Assam in the national civil services such as IAS/IPS/IRS/IFS etc.
Secondly, the quality of officers selected through the state civil services examination in Assamnwould be better since the competition in Assam for the final selection in APSC will be among the candidates who have been aspiring for selection in UPSC for the last 3-4 years. It is heartening to welcome the ambitious stand of the Assam Government which will ultimately feature increased number of civil services aspirants in the national civil services ranks and at the same time boost the state civil services.
Mr. Anuj further said that “We have already conducted intensive multiple UPSC civil servicesncoaching programs at Assam Administrative Staff College, Khanapara, Guwahati through various government schemes for the last 3 years and are extremely pleased to train talented aspirants of Assam for the elite civil services of India”.
