This is one such question that haunts the mind of all those who aspire to start preparing for civil services. Despite this being a fundamental question for most aspirants, whether they should join UPSC coaching or not, people struggle to find out a proper answer to it.
If you meet toppers, they will say that there is no need for coaching yet you will find the names of toppers in most of the institutes. A simple aspirant becomes confused about what to do or what not to do for his/her UPSC exam preparation.
If we try to deconstruct the experiences of most of the toppers, it is generally found that most of them start their preparation with coaching classes, some in college time, others afterwards. Yet by the end of their preparation, they start feeling that there was no need of coaching.
The reason is that the UPSC paper is highly complex and dynamic. It keeps on changing year after year. If one reads NCERTs and have a look at the papers then the fellow becomes bewildered. They feel that these questions are too difficult and yes they are difficult. Then he looks at the syllabus and ends up realizing that everything under the Sun is part of the syllabus. This creates anxiety and confusion. Then he starts looking for guidance.
Now there is a difference between guidance and coaching. Everyone needs guidance but for coaching, it depends on the peculiar circumstances of the person who is preparing for the exam. There are also many coaching centers that are experts in misguidance also. This also vitiates the situation.
