UPSC COACHING IN CHENNAI
Serving at illustrious civil services posts in the country such as the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), the Indian Police Service (IPS), and the Indian Foreign Service (IFS) is definitely an honourable choice of career. Selection to these services that are a part of the All India Services (AIS) is done by the means of the Civil Services Examination (CSE) conducted by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC). Once aspirants consider the exceptional jobs of the civil services officers recruited via the civil services examination, it is easy to see and understand that this exam can prove to be a tough job to clear. Another important aspect of making one's way into various central services is the State Civil Services examination conducted by the individual state's Public Service Commission. The Civil Services exam conducted by the State Commission is intended for recruitment of candidates into the state's civil service. To put it simply, after clearing the State Civil Services Examination, candidates get jobs in state domains such as SCS (State Civil Services), SPS (State Police Services), Deputy Collector, etc. Tamil Nadu too conducts a Civil Services examination in the state for appointment of candidates to various civil services and posts. The overall magnitude of the services under both the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC) and UPSC combined with the scope of career growth they offer is immense. Thus, it is important to understand that clearing the UPSC and/or TNPSC exam not only needs the aspirants' utmost dedication but also necessitates rigorous discipline and intensive training.
