Why should I go for Govt. Jobs? I have good private job in a multinational Company and I earn handsome salary and incentives?


With economic slowdown round the corner, do you expect the same salary and incentives in the coming days? The word ‘recession’ is a nightmare for all who are in private sector.

I want to be an IAS officer. Why should I start with preparation for SSC (GL) exams?


SSC exam you need to study Maths, Reasoning and English and in 2011 the UPSC introduced these subjects in IAS pre (Paper-II). The number of passages included in this paper is numerous and in English of SSC (Tier II) you have 30-40 questions on passages. You also study General Studies for SSC exam (Tier I).
This builds your strong foundation for IAS Pre (Paper I). We at Paramount develop your conceptual understanding in each subject and the General Studies we teach in SSC batches, amount to 80% of
the G.S. a student studies for Civil Services Exams. Moreover if a student straightaway walks into a Civil Services tutorial classroom, he faces problems because the coaching of IAS usually does not include basic factual knowledge of each subject which an aspirant of Civil Services Exam is supposed to know. For sure success, one must be slow and steady.
