I am a working professional and have always aspired to clear UPSC. Hence, I started preparing for the exam a few months back. But considering the fact that I was a working individual, I did not have enough time for regular coaching classes. Besides, the fees of regular coaching classes did not resonate with my budget. However, I also knew without guidance I cannot continue with the preparation as the mammoth syllabus which is there in this exam needs strategical preparation to complete it. I then searched for the material that is available online which I successfully found. But the main challenge was I needed guidance to understand it. After thorough research, I came to know about UPSC PATHSHALA which provides online training to the UPSC aspirants. I immediately enrolled in the course as it was all that I needed. UPSC PATHSHALA provided me with an online trainer, Atul Sir who under his mentorship and guidance taught me the syllabus from one end to the other. His dedication, commitment and ability to make the classes interesting are a superlative effort which is unmatched and kept me motivated throughout the sessions.
Since UPSC conducts this exam in three rounds, we need proper strategy to prepare for each round. The strategies and the scheduling of classes were such that I got a deep insight of every subject. UPSC PATHSHALA also conducts the periodic tests during the coaching period which showed me my regular improvement in the preparation. The USP of this platform is that we have video lectures here, which complete the syllabus in a shorter span of time. Also, current affairs and General studies are big part of the syllabus. We need to be updated with current affairs and also with the static portion which is very well defined here on this platform. Daily discussion on BAND simply adds on to the advantages that I had from this platform. All I have to say is that this platform provided best possible refined content which was enough to expand my knowledge base.
Now I am at a better spot in terms of preparation. My confusions have got cleared, I have a deep insight of syllabus, I am very much planned & systematised and above all I have the confidence of cracking CSE in this attempt. All thanks to UPSC PATHSHALA.
