SAI IAS Academy was established in the year 2015 with a view to establish a bench-mark institution to achieve excellence in the competitive exams in the country, providing coaching facilities to UPSC, SSC, IBPS and TNPSC – GROUP I & II Services etc., Over this period, SAI IAS has evolved into a unique model academy in providing excellent coaching to aspirants striving together, year after year, in pursuit of a single goal.
Though our journey started in near past, SAI IAS has been at the cutting edge of real learning. Today, it is known for the most aspirants in Tamil Nadu as specialized institution of its type in this region, performing consistently at high levels and has acquired the rare distinction of achieving the success-rate in its initial stage itself.
The faculty of the SAI IAS is composed of experienced educators, competent administrators and dedicated researchers and frequent visit by All India Service officers in service. The Highlight of the SAI IAs academy is the fraternal atmosphere it provides, in which the students are seasoned by a committed, imaginative and gifted core faculty. Here, every student experiences a gurukul approach which leads to widening his/her knowledge. We treat our each member as a personality and not mere an aspirant. The aim is to set the aspirants free from the rigidities of highly ritualized, bland and just exam oriented learning that they have so far experienced in universities; where there is a lot of teaching but very little learning..
Our effort is not only to provide the students with a road-map to effective learning but also to reassure them of our motivating company during their journey on the road to success. In nutshell, most of the students feel that their experience at SAI IAS is not only innovative but also unique.
Preparations for the university examinations are completely differ from preparation for civil services. A candidate for the Civil Services Examination does not have much time at his desk. The first way to knock the door of success is to find 3R’s: Right materials, Right approach, Right nuances of the examination etc., Apart from this, a dedicated preparation for about one year, will bring much more confidence for the aspirants to crack this nut shell.
Since very few candidates would have been preparing like that, SAI IAS emphasizes on the nature of the preparation to be made, the questions on UPSC standard, how to tackle them, and evoking their interest in the various areas of knowledge. All these dimensions of guidance would be projected as the teachers talk to the students in the sittings as per the schedule.
Apart from the lectures of the teacher, there will be work sheet modules before SAI IAS test series and it is compulsory for the members to attempt them. Once the worksheets are completed, it will give the aspirants a clear concept over the respective subjects and provide greater confidence to approach the test series. Finally, the aspirants are allowed to go for the test on every week-end. A review of these tests will be done by the concerned teachers in the sittings that are scheduled. Once, the mistakes committed by aspirants are pointed out, it is expected of them not to commit the same mistakes while attempting the second set of tests.
What SAI IAS has in its repertory is not a bag of tricks or short cuts. Instead, what it aims at is to help its aspirant to understand the basic concepts clearly what they studied as part of their curriculum in school days. Some may show you the importance of NCERT but we deliver the concept clarity from NCERT. There will be no foolhardy effort to acquire an encyclopaedic range of knowledge in a short-while. The approach would, therefore, be to develop a higher degree of intellectual clarity and critical ability to learn new concepts and ideas better and faster.
