The first batch of IAS aspirants at the IAS Guidance Centre at St. Xavier’s College have completed their training.
Classes for the nine-month course were wrapped up on April 30, three months before the IAS prelim exam 2014 to allow students time to revise the study material.
“The students of the first batch were happy about the guidance given by our faculty members and they are confident about their success in the examination,” Father Felix Raj, the principal of the college, said.
The admission process for the second batch is on. Classes will begin on August 1, 2014. “We have been receiving very good response,” Felix Raj said.
Those interested in taking admission may visit the college website or the guidance centre on the campus.
