St Xavier's College is all set to start an IAS coaching centre

St Xavier's College is all set to start an IAS coaching centre from August, with specialised coaching in eight subjects - commerce, economics, political science, international relations, sociology, statistics, history, management and physics.

It will be a full-time course for nine months and selected candidates will have to attend classes on the campus for five days a week for four hours daily. There are some privately-run coaching centres where module-based training is imparted and so, candidates do not have to attend full-time classes. "But I believe in full-time teaching-learning and related mock exams, just like it happens in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the college. Excellence comes through contact with the guide and this will be our uniqueness," promised principal Father Felix Raj.

Initially, only 60 candidates will be accepted on merit since the college wishes to keep the training intensive and niche. Faculty members from the college and those known to be experts in the subjects beyond the campus are being roped in as guides.
