Coaching can be an important stepping stone towards your full-fledged preparation. You should check certain factors before joining a coaching institute i.e. Faculties, Syllabus completion, Questions practice, Approach for mains, Test series, Success ratio, Healthy competitive environment, and so on. There are various benefits of joining a coaching institute.
By joining a coaching institute you’ll be benefited with the first and most important thing as we discussed in the very 1st stage is “WHAT NOT TO READ?” and “WHAT TO READ?”. The faculties who are teaching in an institute have been through the stage at which you are currently preparing. So the guidance regarding which topics you should focus on and which you can leave can be easily understood with the help of experienced faculties.
Your concepts will be much clearer. You will face difficulties in understanding some topics only by reading it in a book. For example, you are reading about Pressure belts present on earth. It is possible that not everyone who reads this topic can understand it clearly. You’ll be confused about why these winds are moving to this direction only and how this circulation works. An expert faculty in Geography can explain this better than a reference book. Same would have happened in Economics too. So concept clarity helps you in solving questions perfectly.
It helps in maintaining your zeal to become a civil servant. A competitive environment and friends with same goals like you encourages you to be a tough competent in this competition. Remember that the journey of UPSC-CSE is a marathon and not just a sprint. Your patience and perseverance will give you result not just by being in the competition for two to three months but surviving in till you feel confident that you gave your 100%.
You will meet like-minded individuals who are as zealous as you. Good friend circle will add value to your preparation.
