UNDER OVERALL MENTORSHIP OF PRANAY AGGARWAL SIR, FOCUSING ON TEST SERIES AND WRITING ANSWERS AND GETTING THEM EVALUATED, YOU CAN GREATLY BENEFIT. COACHING AND TEACHERS LIKE PRANAY SIR HAVE GIVEN ME AN OVERALL MENTORSHIP. I have stayed in constant touch with my teachers. That overall constant touch has motivated me over the years. That will help you also to clear the exam.

I joined sociology classroom course of Pranay Aggarwal Sir in 2015. I will recommend his classes to those taking up sociology optional. I greatly benefited from his guidance. He provides a very supportive environment. My optional marks played an important role in helping me clear the exam and enter the public service. After 5 years of my coaching, I am still in touch with Sir.

Manika Upadhyaya, IAS GURUKUL student in 2018

MY EXPERIENCE AT IAS GURUKUL WAS MARVELOUS as I enjoyed as well as learnt a lot about Society in a short span of time. PRANAY SIR'S WAY OF TEACHING IS VERY UNIQUE. He explains a topic really well, provides questions after covering every few topics and dictates notes wherever he finds necessary. Overall his pedagogy is interactive and interdisciplinary.
