Shankar IAS Academy: Coaching Center that Endeavors to Unlock the Potential of Civil Service Aspirants

Shankar Devarajan,FounderI attempted IFS for the 1st time in the year 2016; though I wasn't able to crack the examination due to the lack of preparation. Then I decide to enroll for Forestry & Geology classes in Shankar IAS academy (SIA). The sessions provided by the faculty and their guidance proved to be immensely helpful. I realized it during the exam when I was able to enrich my answers with tree species, forestry jargons and lucid diagrams, which was not the case in my 2016 attempt.

Truly the smaller nuances of these two subjects imparted by the faculty team at SIA, helped my answers stand out well and helped to boost my marks and eventually enabling me to secure a higher rank. Online & Spot admission starts on 14th April 2021 for UPSC Civil Service Examination 2021-22 coaching & for preboking of seats kindly visit," asserts Jayakumaran N, a student who not only just got nurtured by Shankar IAS academy but secured All India Rank (AIR) 4 in IFS 2018 examination.

Such is the kind of knowledge, confidence and impact, Shankar IAS academy, the Chennai-based coaching institute makes on its students. In an industry flooded with generic courses that are mended for the mass, Jayakumaran's words make great sense as SIA' custom courses bridge the gap for any aspirant learner, and help achieve their goals.
A comprehensive institution with an exhilarating curriculum emphasizing on acquiring knowledge, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, SIA imparts students with the skills required to compete, progress and excel in the competitive realm of civil services. This 2004-established institution was founded by Shankar Devarajan (Founder), a postgraduate in agriculture, an educationist and a business leader who believed that education must evoke zeal in students to dream, act and achieve their goal. With such dedicated aim, Shankar started his venture with a team of expert mentors; today under the team's stewardship & a unique approach to education, SIA has reached newer heights of excellence by helping 1200+ candidates realize their dream of becoming the bureaucrat and guiding thousands of others to realize their potential. SIA takes pride in having successfully contributed to the nation-building albeit, in a small way.

Dedicated Offerings
SIA offers top-class coaching modules and imparts best-in-class training for TNPSC (Tamil Nadu Public Services Commission), SSC (Staff Selection Commission) and Banking exams conducted across India. However, the institute excels in offering unmatchable UPSC exam coaching. Moreover, it's not only that SIA's courses are highly affordable; the offerings come with several benefits such as student-achiever inter-action facility, extensive test series, free guidance for the interview, the mentor-ship programme, world-class infrastructure and also online classes.

What makes SIA, a highly `go-to institute' is its strong institutional culture which is built on the pillars of five core values including reliability, competence, responsiveness, approachability & accessibility and trustworthiness. These values serve as a guide through changing times and shape SIA's mission (to provide meticulous and focused training to the aspirants to succeed in the civil services examination), and vision (to be-come a renowned institution producing eminent and responsible civil servants for the society).

A Great Future Ahead
No wonder, with such dedicated offerings, SIA has successfully accumulated enticing student results for itself. To date, the institute has witnessed the selection of 1200+ UPSC candidates for IAS, IPS, IFS and other elite services, 1500+ TNPSC candidates for Group I, II and IV services, and 1000+ banking candidates across various banks in India.
