This place will help you find so many unexplored aspects of your character. I have been here for the last 5 months and the best thing I gained here is the conviction that I can clear UPSC. Separate batch for working people, demo classes, lucid and highly systematic teaching methodology is the USP. The students are so conscious, aware and thoughtful; you will always feel as if you are in some privileged group.

UPSC Aspirant

Teaching staff is highly experienced and the presentation of their lectures is very simple and easy to understand. It’s not like the teachers in some institutes who are brilliant in their subjects, but cannot explain the topic in a way student can comprehend easily.The quality of study materials provided by the institute is meticulously designed and really helpful.

I Joined Shaan on the very next when the idea of preparing for UPSC barely came into my mind... I am not sure how serious and sure I was about it... I have never been a studious person... I was always an average student who used to run from studies... After joining Shaan, I can say that I enjoy studying and now I am sure that I want to do it... I never feel bored in the classes... the story telling and the interactive sessions make classes lively and a happy place to learn...I will never regret my decision no matter what the result would be...

I started taking online coaching this year and In my opinion, Anurag Sir is the best you can get for this exam. I used to be very scared of the exam earlier but I feel much lighter now because of Sir’s efforts in making everything easy and understandable. His vision, his knowledge, his way of teaching and his attention towards each student makes the preparation easy. He keeps a record of every student and knows the weaknesses and strengths of them all.

Pooja Yadav

Sir puts 100% effort from his side, it's now upto us...I would highly recommend others if they are serious about their preparation and looking for guidance.I would like to come back to this page and provide new feedback after this year's exam. All the best everyone.
