Top 5 Reasons to Join IAS Coaching in Chandigarh

Join IAS Coaching

It is that time of year when many students are preparing for life after graduation. Some opt to join private companies; some start their own or join their family business; others start to prepare for competitive exams. The first thing that comes in most students’ mind is to go to Delhi and join some coaching institute. However, why to move to Delhi, when you can find a similar level in Chandigarh. So, we bring you Top 5 Reasons to Join an IAS Coaching in Chandigarh.

Join IAS Coaching

So here are the Top 5 Reasons to Join IAS Coaching in Chandigarh:

Better Environment

The most important thing for anyone to study properly is a pleasant environment. Chandigarh fulfils that need in the most convenient way. Surrounded by greenery all around, Chandigarh is one of the most eco-friendly cities. It is a perfect blend of nature and modernity. The pollution is at a minimum level. Also, unlike Delhi, Chandigarh is free from excess crowd and noise. You will find this environment more than perfect for studies.

Similar Faculty

Most of the institutes that provide coaching in Chandigarh have appropriately qualified faculty members. Some of them are even ex-faculties of coaching institutes in Delhi. So, instead of just following the crowd, make your decision after attending some demo classes. For students in Northern India, Chandigarh is a top destination when it comes to choosing colleges. However, they do not show the same trust when it comes to coaching. Just because everyone else is going to join some prestigious institute in Delhi does not mean you should follow their footsteps. Make your own decision by at least going for demo classes in IAS coaching institutes of Chandigarh Tricity. We are sure you will be surprised if you do not believe us.

Study Facilities

Apart from fantastic IAS coaching institutes, Chandigarh is also home to the most important and most extensive libraries in North India. You will find all the top study material from the best authors in Chandigarh’s libraries. There is even a 24-hour open library in Punjab University campus, A.C. Joshi Library. If you love to study outdoors, then be a guest to the large parks and gardens of Chandigarh. Enjoy a peaceful and hassle-free environment perfect for studying or just relaxing while you are taking a break. Chandigarh has many bookstores where you can find new and used books to assist your studies. Moreover, as the online study resources are improving day by day, it does not matter where you are. If you are ready to work hard, you can study wherever you want to.

Competition Level

The biggest excuse students give not to join IAS coaching in Chandigarh is that the competition is not high enough. So, they move to Delhi to get a real view of the competition. That is not a case anymore. Many of the top AIR candidates in UPSC Civil Services Examination come from Chandigarh’s IAS coaching institutes. You will meet the most sincere and dedicated students once you join the classes. The State Library in sector-34 is always a home to hundreds of students studying for the same goal as yours. Similarly, you can find study buddies in any of the other libraries.

Better Attention to Students        

Most institutes in Delhi have batches of more than 300 students in a single classroom. Giving attention to every single student is impossible in such huge batches. IAS coaching institutes in Chandigarh, on the other hand, have limited seats in their classes. So, the teacher knows the strength and weaknesses of every student in their class. It allows them to provide personalised solutions to students according to their needs and help them get the best results. That is why you join any IAS coaching institute after all.


So, these were our top 5 reasons why you should join an IAS coaching institute in Chandigarh. IAS coaching in Chandigarh is not relatively famous. However, you can use that to your advantage. Get undivided attention from your teachers with direct interaction. Enjoy beautiful weather and environment, and most importantly, live in a stress-free environment. So, break away from the crowd and join a new wave. Give Chandigarh a chance. You will love the experience. In the long run, it will help you to get the rest you want.

All the best for your preparations.
