Is BYJUS best for a UPSC aspirant ? - YP Buzz Edu

 YP Buzz - 

              In a full-page ad that was published nationally every day on October 2, Jagriti Awasthi's face was highlighted.


A few days earlier, on September 26, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) announced the results of the infamous Civil Services Exam and Awasthi removed it, became second in the country, and was elected by 2020 a group of Indian Administrative Services officials. In the ad, India's most prominent technology company, Byju, demanded that its staff training department, Byju's IAS, train him to clear the exam. Outside, it was not.

Similar to Awasthi, Sarthak Agarwal (all-India rank 17) was also part of the ad. While at the Central Board of Secondary Education's (CBSE) Classper topper, he told Careers360 that he had never used any paid training work.

The full page ad featured a large number of candidates; They said 36 of the top 100 had prepared for the public service test with them and that 281 out of 761 ranks - about 37% - had all been trained by Byju.

If it were true, 37% of the IAS bulk training to pass the most competitive exams would not only mean a shocking success on the part of one coaching company but, in this case, would be proof of the effectiveness and impact of online learning itself. Outside, it is not.

CSE: Three-phase testing

How the Byjis have managed to summon such a huge pile of future pundits as its students are linked to how public service tests are structured and the training phases should make a big difference.

More than 10.4 lakh applicants for the Civil Services Exam to select the IAS 2020 collection. Of them, only 10 564 are eligible for the written, or “Main” round held in January. In this group, 2,053 conducted personality tests and interviews in the final round. In all, 761 out of 10,40,060 students dropped all the exams to become the next largest IAS Indian team. That is the 0.2% graduation rate for personal interviews and the 0.073% success rate for being an IAS official.

The competition is always strong every year for years. In 2019, of the approximately 11.35 lakh applicants, 2 034 were invited for interviews and eventually 927 were selected. Taking all three levels of the selection process together, the success rate is in the range of 0.07% to 0.08%.

It is clear that the main challenges are the first two tests - "Prelims" and "Mains" - and require a lot of effort as the candidate reaches the negotiating stage, which is already up 0.2%.

Thanks & Regards
