VAID’S ICS Lucknow, a leading Consultancy for Civil Services, was started in 1988 to provide expert guidance, consultancy and counseling to aspirants for a career in Civil Services. Further it also provides consultancy in social science information and research. The Institute has achieved phenomenal success during the last twenty one years in securing aspirants good positions in several government and non-government services. Though better known for it’s enviable success in IAS examination, the Institute has established fairly good reputation for PCS and PCS(J) examinations too. Due to untiring efforts, devotion and dedication of the faculty members and other staff, VAID’S ICS LUCKNOW has emerged, in the last few years, as an important centre for expert guidance, long term planning and counseling for the aspirants of the three prestigious examinations viz-IAS, PCS, PCS (J) and CSIR NET (Life-Sciences). Recently, we have started another venture in the name of ACE (Academy of Competitive Examinations) for SSC/Bank/MBA/Railways and all other one-day examinations.
The Civil Services (including the PCS) and the PCS (J) attract some of the best talented young persons in our country. The sheer diversity of work and it’s nature, the opportunity to serve the country and be directly involved in nation-buidling, makes the bureaucracy the envy of both-the serious and the adventurous. Its multi-tiered (Prelims examination, Mains & Interview) examination is one of the most stringent selection procedures. VAID’S ICS Lucknow, from its inception, has concentrated on the requirements of the civil services aspirants. The Institute expects, and helps in single-minded dedication and preparation.
The Institute has some strong values, reflected in equal emphasis to Hindi and English as mediums of examination and encouragement to hitherto lesser known subjects. Its non-elitist approach attracts students not only from UP, MP & Bihar but as far-flung places as Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Bhubneshwar Raipur, Indore, Gwalior and other far off places.VAID’S ICS Lucknow is a pleasurable experience for the dedicated, and an exacting one for the uninitiated. It demands hard labour and responsiveness from the students. Besides our permanent faculty, eminent professors from universities and colleges and the senior IAS and IPS Officers continue to provide valuable counseling and guidance through group discussion and mock interviews, SWOT Analysis and Psychometrics Testing. The Institute believes in creating a conducive atmosphere in career building.
