FOUNDATION COURSE FOR UPSC - MPSC EXAMS BY ‘COMPEX FORUM’
Age of Liberalization and Globalization and Privatization (LGP) began in India in 1991. A number of experts predicted that shrinking of government sector. However 2 decades after LGP began, the government sector has not shrunk but in fact is growing. In countries like India, government just can’t escape from Welfarism. Thus, the government jobs are ample even after LGP. One can witness this from growing number of seats advertised for civil services every year.
Government job offers security, prestige and power- power to make difference for the society. To enter government service, one needs to qualify through a number of competitive exams conducted by bodies like Public Service Commissions at Union and State levels, Staff Selection Commission etc. The exams are extremely competitive and test the intellect, consistency and temperament of the candidates. Hence proper guidance & training are keys to success.
We have noticed that the success rate of students from Maharashtra in national level competitive exams is relatively low. This is due to lack of awareness & proper guidance at undergraduate level. Students generally start preparing after they graduate. But they thus lose valuable undergraduation years for preparation. Even when they begin, there is lack of guidance about choosing optional subjects, study material & guidance.
Thus SIES College in association with ‘Compex Forum’ has launched UPSC – MPSC course to provide the overall guidance & develop correct approach for success in these exams.
Objectives
  1. Create awareness about various competitive exams in Maharashtra and India.
  2. To guide undergraduate college students. This is because awareness about these exams is lacking at undergraduate level which unnecessarily delays their success in these exams.
  3. To provide training from Foundation level to interview.
  4. To encourage interactions between fresher’s and successful candidates through formal & informal channels.
