Online IAS Coaching For UPSC / IAS Examination

Online IAS Coaching - Since the novel coronavirus was detected, many things have changed in many ways, and the impact on our lives has been unpredictable. Among the many sectors that had to face the direct impact of the impact, education happens to be the one that has been majorly impacted.

Since long aspirants of the UPSC/IAS Civil Examinations were dependent on the traditional coaching institutes for preparing themselves for the exam. Over the years, they had become accustomed to the physical format of the classroom. However, due to the corona pandemic lockdown restrictions put into place by the government, for all sections of the education institutes, it has not been possible to coach in classrooms. Keeping in mind the way things are proceeding, it seems that this condition will sustain quite some time now.

As the restrictions related to the lockdown are relaxed and things get eased for the education institutes, there will still be many precautions in place, like social distancing that will need to be mandatorily ensured. In such a situation, it is most likely that a significant chunk of civil services aspirants will not afford even the minimum coaching and guidance as per the traditional classroom format.

Therefore, institutes have been compelled to look for suitable alternatives to the face to face classroom system. As a result, the system of interactive on-line coaching approach was adopted. Even those institutes that were among the oldest and most reputed had no choice but to go for this approach.

It is, therefore, necessary to have an understanding of the on-line format. After all, this approach will be in place for an indefinite period, and no matter how inconvenient traditional aspirants find it be, they do not have an alternate or any other choice. If not anything, this new system's efficacy must be understood well if aspirants want to have an outstanding result.

The current pandemic has compelled all the dedication institutes to evolve from a complete off-line format to an on-line one. And, things have happened pretty fast too. It is a familiar story that a group of students approached a person to teach. Going ahead, a large team of academicians and teachers were formed, which led to creating an atmosphere of learning and development that was adequately conducive for the students. This is how traditional schools and institutes came into being.

Such institutes and schools helped students to the basics of studies. They found the much-required courage to question facts and already established theories to have an in-depth understanding of everything around them than accept what is in front. The education and training institutes' knowledge and writing skills ensure that students can acquire the much-needed skills related to writing and knowledge essential for clearing crucial exams such as the UPSC or IAS. Such arrangements gave the applicants a framework for preparing for the exams, a clear-cut direction, along the necessary resources to get things done. The physical format of educational training provided the basis for clearing the doubts, both inside and outside the class. The classroom format of teaching was to assure of the unwavering dedication and support during their journey as students.

Following this format, many educational institutes have become specialized in their respective domains, including UPSC and IAS. Based on this approach, the various study institutes have upheld cutting edge development and teaching. In pursuit of the same objectives, these institutes recently have introduced provisions for on-line training and development. In this format, the training and teaching are conducted through online learning platforms used by students to access live lectures.

What Are The Various Benefits And Advantages Of This New Online Approach?

In traditional classrooms, aspirants were required to reveal to the campus or the coaching institute. However, in the on-line format, the necessary guidance is made available to the aspirants right in the confines of their home. This specific feature related to safety has recently become very vital than ever. In other words, Covid has changed the way of imparting education. It needs to be understood that all the IAS aspirants' learning requirements are more or less the same even though they come from contrasting backgrounds. Because of this, their approach to study varies a lot.

Some people need to balance work or look after college studies or perhaps take care of family life. Such juggling makes management of time and attending tuition classes physically not only tricky but also a big challenge. For example, aspirants who stay in far-flung regions need to come down to the campus to attend classes, say six times in a week, literally impossible. Another common issue is societal distractions that thwart the learning outcome to a great extent. In such cases, the preference is always to study through an alternate method. Such an approach at least allows staying focussed, which is vital for such crucial examinations. In other cases, there might be a preference for a unique pace and style of learning.

The on-line approach is a unique way for the aspirants to shift between the demands of unavoidable daily activities where time and resources are always limited while preparing for the UPSC / IAS examinations for achieving the life goals. In general, parents, working professionals, domestic and international students, aspirants with disabilities, and those located in remote regions can benefit a lot through the on-line format of coaching. Additionally, at a time like this, those looking to maintain a social distance and study from their home's safety would be most benefited by the online model. The flexibility extended by this system is simply unparalleled. Whoever is willing to adopt this format can easily do it anytime. It is not just a cost-effective solution, but it also accommodates the needs of all aspirants.

What Is The Difference? How Is The Online Approach Different From Face To Face Format?

Well, there is no difference between the online and face to face format. The only difference is in the mode of the delivery of the lecture. In place of the physical one, we now have the on-line one. In this, aspirants can always interact with the instructor or the lecturer, just like how it happens in a regular offline classroom. The online model has an extra advantage. All the live lectures can later be accessed in the form of a recording. Therefore, it is possible to go through the teaching sessions later on as many times as required.

The second aspect of the on-line teaching approach is a technological intervention. The use of technology has enhanced several aspects of teaching like:


The online mode allows to avail guidance from practically anywhere and everywhere by merely clicking a button. Aspirants can have quality guidance without going over to the institute or keeping up with restrictions like social distancing. Technology has drastically improved access to information and education.


It is no longer required to attend a coaching session at a specified time. It is quite challenging to achieve for those employed or have a family to look after. Video back-up of the on-line sessions makes it convenient to catch up with the coaching schedule in case of a miss. All the study materials are available on-line, and aspirants can study and complete assignments as per their schedule. People need to complete the tasks within the deadline. It's up to them how they plan it.

Increased Interaction:

Class time is no longer the only scope to ask questions or look for information. Instead, it is possible to raise a query anytime. There is no need to wait for the next class. It is also possible to engage in group discussions and share information.

Time is valuable. There is no point in waiting for normalcy since a lot of things are still in the dark. No one knows for sure what will happen next. All educational institutes will have to follow the norms. Therefore, it is evident that there will be an impact on the traditional system, and the way forward is the on-line learning mode. It extends the flexibility and offers a host of impossible benefits to achieving in the offline model.

Question: Which is the best online coaching for IAS?

Answer: the best IAS coaching center is judged on the parameters facilities offered by the center. 

At present, several online classes are popping up online that only offer online classes and o not have regular classroom facilities for coaching. It is advised to avoid such centers. 

Choose a coaching center with the best faculty members and offer the best study materials and test series. Coaching centers with a physical presence should be opted by IAS aspirants for an all in one grooming session. Only coaching centers with a high marketing reputation and offer regular offline classes can provide the best coaching. It is advised to stay far from coaching centers that offer coaching for several examinations such as IAS, CDS, SSC, Banking, and many more. These online coaching centers are mostly focused on incomes and profits rather than education. Coaching centers can’t be experts in all the examinations, so it is advised to choose a coaching center that offers IAS examination coaching explicitly.

Question: Which is the best online course for UPSC?

Answer: The course for all the aspirants remains the same. There is a General Studies paper which is compulsory.  Yes, there are optional subjects that aspirants can opt to take.

Later you refer to them along with the study materials and other documents. 

The lessons online are taught by subject experts. These experts have immense knowledge and offer the dos and don’ts, a bonus to candidates.

Question: Is there any free IAS Coaching?

Answer: This question put forward is a remarkable one. We all want free IAS coaching practically. It is not in practice. This is because no one is willing to offer such services for free. If a center offers free coaching, it is just a marketing gimmick.

There are several other reasons why IAS Coaching cannot be offered for free. Firstly, free IAS coaching will lack a good and experienced team of faculty members. Secondly, no teacher will be able to complete the entire syllabus, including several subjects all alone. In short, to do justice with the IAS exams, you require a team of experts that do not come for free.

Finally, it is advised to go for a valuable and experienced coaching center for the best results rather than going to free IAS coaching centers.
