NEW DELHI, July 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Narayana Group and Sri Chaitanya Group have come together today, for the common good of education to form Narayana Sri Chaitanya IAS Academy (NSC). The newly founded Academy will ensure that students are in a win-win situation if they follow their unique module in letter and spirit.
Students who strive very hard after graduation in preparation for the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and civil services such as the Indian Police Service, Indian Foreign Service, Indian Revenue Service, etc, end up spending huge sums of money. Last year, more than 3.5 lakh students appeared for IAS Civil Services examination for about 900 placements, so much is the competition
At an impressive launch ceremony of NSC IAS ACADEMY held at Le Meridien Hotel in New Delhi on July 2, NSC Co-Founder Dr. B.S. Rao spelt out the roadmap for success in IAS Civil Services by drawing lessons from his own experience as a leading educationist for IIT and medical entrance examinations. Dr. Rao. Founder and President of Sri Chaitanya IIT Academy said, "By replicating our module for IITians, we can achieve tremendous results in IAS Civil Services. Our mantra is 'Catch 'em Young'. We believe that if we lay the foundation at an early age, we will have enough time of five years to build the structure. It would be a strong edifice which would not wilt under any pressure or stress."
The NSC IAS Academy plans to offer 12-hour, three-days a week foundation courses to students starting from Class XI in subjects like general studies, mental aptitude, general English, etc. The academy understands that the student has to pay enough attention to regular studies in school, and hence will not burden the students with any optional subjects.
"You need to have a stress free preparation and there are a lot of components that go into preparation - mere dumping the syllabus on young students of Class XI will not help. You need to sow the seed for preparation for civil services at a very young age of 15 years or so and then the seed becomes a tree at the age of 21-22," says Mohan Rao, CEO of the Narayana Sri Chaitanya IAS Academy.
Both Narayana Group and Sri Chaitanya Group are leading educational institutions specialized in the field of IIT-JEE, AIEEE and other engineering and medical entrance examinations across the country for over 30 years and of course fierce rivals in this highly competitive educational sector. But ironically, both groups with their wisdom, deep respect and appreciation for each other, have joined hands to launch the new joint venture, NSC IAS Academy in New Delhi.
NSC IAS Academy is promoted by eminent people such as T.N. Seshan, former Chief Election Commissioner, as Advisor, and K. Padmanabhaiah, former Secretary of Home Affairs as the Dean. Many senior bureaucrats, CEOs, young entrepreneur and serving senior officers are part of the visiting faculty.
Dr. Rao comments on the module of Catch 'em Young which imparts training for IITians , and is a huge success. "For students who want to become IITians we provide training from Class VIII onwards. Nearly 3,000 students out of 10,000 seats available in IITs in the country are either from the Narayana IIT Academy or Sri Chaitanya IIT Academy, so much is the strike rate for our institutions," says Dr. B.S. Rao. "These institutions are known to the public for a long time - over 30 years - in the field of engineering and medicine. Lakhs of students feel the stress in coping with studies in the competitive examinations therefore it is difficult for students to balance. Training students after schooling is difficult and stressful, but if you start early it is easy to overcome stress. We will not, of course, train students of Class XI with IAS syllabus, but provide the foundation for learning the basics of general studies, mental ability, and more importantly the concept of the examination," adds Dr. Rao.
Taking a cue from Dr. Rao, CEO Mohan Rao said that the students of the present generation have the required focus to realize their dreams. They just need right training and guidance through their learning process
"We provide a single platform from laying the foundation to the IAS Civil Services examination to the finishing line of getting into the service. Those who start their preparation after graduation and make into Civil Services would do after 2 or 3 attempts i.e., when they attain age of 25-26 . This means they enter the service late and may not enjoy the complete benefits in service as they might retire without attaining the senior positions," added Mohan Rao.
The young CEO has addressed the issues relating to back-up options for the aspirants such as getting tier-2 or tier-3 officer level jobs, if they are unable to successfully pass the IAS Civil Services. "There are hosts of jobs in Staff Selection Commission, State Public Service Commissions, Railway Board, Bank Officers, which are easy for a student of the caliber and training who studies in NSC IAS Academy for five years. It is a win-win situation," said Mohan Rao.
NSC IAS Academy provides opportunities for all-round development of the personality of a student. To get experience and proper exposure, NSC also organizes field visits for students so they get first-hand knowledge and gain experience, confidence and motivation to join the services. The NSC had organized a visit to the Indian Police Academy in Hyderabad, last year, which helped students to learn from the budding IPS officers.
The Academy offers training courses at three levels - Level-1 for Class XI-XII students (Compulsory subjects such as General Studies, Mental Aptitude, etc), Level-2 for Graduation Students (Compulsory and Optional subjects) and Level-III (subject-wise training). The versatile and experienced faculty is available 27 x 7 to attend students queries and doubts. Narayana Sri Chaitanya is the only institution which is offering such novel concept to Class XI and XII students from imparting basic requirements to inculcating analytical thinking
