Shrestha Anupam, All India Rank 19, Civil Services Exam 2019

To the students of IAS Gurukul, i wish you a very bright future ahead. Pranay Sir’s strategy definitely works in the examination.
Answer writing is a very important part of this examination, for sociology specially because it is a writing intensive optional. You need to get into the groove for answer writing..so that you answers can be to the point.. Interaction is also a very important aspect because every student learns at his own pace, every student has different requirements. (He can't help you) unless you convey to the teacher what exactly are you expecting of him, what exactly are the points where you are getting stuck.
I would say that interaction and answer writing are both very important part of your preparation. My best wishes are with you.


Ruchi Bindal, All India Rank 39, Civil Services Exam 2019

I wish the students of IAS Gurukul all the best for the upcoming exam and i hope you come out with flying colours. Have faith in yourself, have faith in the teacher. The teacher is there after a lot of experience. You must be here probably for a couple of years; the teacher holds the experience of a lot of years. So listen to the teacher’s experience. There is interaction in the class. You should actively participate in the interaction. Because discussion is something that can go a long way. Second is weekly or daily answer writing practice - do it for a month or two, you yourself will see the difference.


Harshit Kumar, All India Rank 150, Civil Services Exam 2019

IAS Gurukul is a very reputed coaching institute for sociology. Sir has taught for a lot of years now and has been giving consistent results throughout. What I would recommend is you listen to whatever he is teaching, you ask your doubts and make sure you write a lot of tests. Each test should be given with the mindset that you are attempting the real paper and attempt all the 250 marks. You should write very regularly. In optional you should write very very regularly so that you are in touch of the concepts. You should attend all your classes very regularly.
