A. Shah’s Young IAS, a unit of A. A. Shah’s IAS Institute, cultivates the required quality in the young students who aspire their career in Civil Services or Defence Services. Generally students start preparation for Civil Services Examination after graduation. Few start when they are in degree colleges.
General Studies (GS) and Civil Service Aptitude Test (CSAT) are the compulsory subjects of Civil Services preliminary Examination. General Studies include History, Geography, Economics, Science, Social Science, Polity, Ecology & Environment etc. These are the subjects, which the students learn in their school & college, without making any attempt to learn the basic concept of the subject and to understand the same. Further, current affairs form an integral part of preparation for Civil Services Examination. However interest and knowledge of students about the issues related to social, economical, political, environmental are minimal.
It is also noticed that students as well as their parents, who aspire to become IAS / IPS / IRS, are directionless and as such due to lack of information and guidance can’t fulfil their wish to serve the nation. Hence, A. A. Shah’s Young IAS is here to fill the vacuum in this arena by training the students from school level to have real value of the education, which will be beneficial to them in accomplishing bright career.
