Udaan Coaching Institute is a Mumbai based coaching class established to provide coaching for the civil services exams conducted by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) and Staff Selection Commission (SSC).
Why Udaan Coaching Institute? This question is natural to come into mind as there are already tens of coaching institutes in Mumbai providing coaching for civil services exams, how Udaan Coaching Institute differs among them? An Indian student until s/he completes his graduation attempts around 50 exams on an average. However unlike Board and University exams civil service exams are not business as usual. They differ in the sense that they are competitive exams. In exams conducted at board or university level once success or failure depends on just once own performance, whereas in competitive exams it is not enough to perform better than once own Previous record, but one need to beet others in order to succeed in the competition. In any given year around 4,00,000 candidates fill the form for appearing in UPSC civil services exam, out of which only 1000 odd candidates are actually selected for services.
This shows how stiff the competition is. To succeed in such a cut throat competition meticulous planning, hardwork and dedicated implementation is required along with proper guidance. Hitherto very few students from Maharashtra and particularly from Mumbai used to prepare for civil services exam. The reasons were varied like lack of awareness, availability of other less demanding career options etc. However due to this Infrastructure, guidance and material required to prepare for such a high level exam had not developed, but in last few years this scenario has changed. Thousands of students from Maharashtra has started preparing for these exams. In the coming years this number is going to increase further. With the growing number of students infrastructure, quality and quantity of coaching too has increased and improved, but still it is not optimum enough as per the requirements of growing number of candidates. There is still a large gap between demand and supply of coaching. Due to this some of the candidates who can afford, go to traditional hub of civil service preparation like Delhi and Allahabad. However going and staying in Delhi is not everybody’s cup of tea. Many factors such as finance, security, family, required time etc. has to be taken into consideration before taking such a big decision. Due to all this not all willing and deserving candidates get an opportunity to prepare for this coveted exam.
