Civil services preparation has traditionally been in the classroom or offline mode. The classroom or physical mode has a sense of immediacy as well as peer interaction and pressure that help students in the learning process.
However online courses also offer various advantages. The biggest advantage of our online courses is that the classroom and teachers (theoretically) are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The only excuse for missing class is not getting online! Otherwise, everything is available to you. You can get announcements, access notes, review assignments, take practice quizzes, discuss questions, chat with fellow students and study any time you want. Other than certain due dates for tests, you even make your own schedule for completing the course because recordings of the live class sessions are made available to you.
You can study any time you want. You can study with whomever you want. You can study wearing anything you want. Online courses give you the flexibility to spend time with work, family, friends, any other activity you like. You still have to complete the work if you want to be well prepared to tackle the exam (and this flexibility can sometimes become the cause of your downfall) but for many students, who cannot travel to Delhi or other leading centres or those who are working, this method of course delivery can be ideal.
During the Zoom based class sessions you can use the chat as well as the Q&A to clear your doubts. Because you have a direct pipeline to the teachers via e-mail/Whatsapp , you can get your questions answered directly. Many students aren’t comfortable asking questions in class for fear of feeling stupid and of course, given the class size of Civil Services courses, this is often not practicable. The Internet (hopefully) eliminates that fear. Many times you think of a question after class or while you are studying. Rather than trying to remember to ask it or forgetting it, you can send an e-mail/Whatsapp message to the teacher and you can expect a response either individually or in the class session. Your opportunity to learn is enhanced.

Our online courses are delivered through one of the best and most popular platforms in the world—Zoom. All you need is to install the Zoom app on your computer or mobile device, and you are ready to go!
The live classes provide highly optimised feeds so that even with slow Internet connections you can remain connected. After the class, links are provided to students to download the recorded class session, if they need it. These files are also highly compressed so that limited bandwidth is needed and your data plan is not under much pressure.
The classes are interactive as you can ask questions or make comments on the live chat and teachers will also offer you opportunities for asking oral questions to clarify any doubts.
The classes are supplemented with extensive notes available through email, download links or even WhatsApp.
