Question: Where should I purse my graduation. Should I study in cotton college guwahati or my home place North Lakhimpur College.
Current Education: BA in Political Science
Marks: 86.66% in 12th Arts
Aim: IPS officer

Answer: Radhika, since you wish to become IPS officer, you must know that one has to clear the civil services exam conducted by UPSC every year to get into IPS. This exam can be given by any graduate. Whether you study in Lakhimpur or Guwahati, you can try to achieve your aim by preparing in the best way possible with right strategy and guidance. While studying in Cotton College Guwahati would be better as you will have better resources, exposure but it doesn’t mean that you have to necessarily leave Lakhimpur. If you can easily shift to Guwahati, without any constraint financially or family wise, it will be a good idea to study in Cotton college. But if there is any constraint, I would suggest that donot worry about studying in Lakhimpur. Wherever you are, focus on civil services. Read newspapers, relevant periodicals regularly with good focus on your subject. Try getting a good grasp on General Knowledge, history, geography and polity of India. Go through websites like insightsonindia.com, iasbaba.com, mrunal.org to understand more about civil service exam and its preparation to achieve your aim of becoming IPS officer.

Question: I want to appear in UPSC exam and I am planning to move to Delhi but have no idea where to stay for my preparation though many have said about Rajinder nagar. Can you please help me out here? I am thinking of taking coaching in Sriram or Vajiram. Please suggest if I can prepare for the exam from Guwahati also without taking coaching. I have started going through the basics of the syllabus.
Current Education: B. SC 4th semester with hons. in zoology
Marks: HSLC:89% HS:85% B.sc1st year :8.5 GPA
Aim: Administrator

Answer: “ Good to know your keen interest for the UPSC exam. Delhi has indeed become a hub for all the UPSC aspirants off late , due to increasing coaching institutes and the methodical courses and competition for the same. Apart from Rajender Nagar, Mukherjee Nagar near the North Campus of Delhi University, is a locality with numerous options for coaching. of Course Vajiram is a very good option for it, but there are other equally good coaching institutes which you can explore. In fact, its better, if you choose your areas of interests first and then choose the institutes, as different institutes have different level of excellence in terms of subject. Rajender Palace is an option to stay up, but you may also explore Mukherjee Nagar and the nearby area for accommodation, as they offer comparatively good and safe PG and hostels then any other place. It also have Assamese eateries, which can fulfill your need for foods , which become a problem for North eastern students sometime. Apart from it, the area is safe and hospitals, market, book shops etc are located nearby. From my point of view, its better to take coaching to prepare your base, although its always depends on you to do justice to the subjects. Otherwise, if you want to do the preparation from Guwahati, you can contact the related institutes for test series, which can also be very helpful.” Another Counsellor named Ullas Kumar has answered to your query as follows- "It is really good that you know your aim and are focussed towards it. UPSC conducts civil services exam every year and you can get the details of syllabus, pattern at upsc official site upsc.gov.in Regarding preparation- The present pattern of exam has 4 GS papers, one optional in mains exam and one GS paper in prelims and another qualifying CSAT paper. It is true that Delhi (Rajender Nagar) is a good place for coaching, material, resources related to this exam. But given the new pattern, it is not at all mandatory to go to Vajiram in Delhi. If you cannot go to Delhi, You can very well prepare in Guwahati. I suggest you go through websites like insightsonindia.com, iasbaba.com, mrunal.org which have lot of resources and inputs from toppers who will tell you that many rankers actually prepared in their native places, sometimes even while working. What is more important is to have a good strategy for this exam. You should choose optional wisely by going through past papers, syllabus and based on your own aptitude. Try to get best resources online mostly available on sites I mentioned. There are also online courses, test series etc. that you can appear for. Some classes for civil services exam are also conducted in Administrative Staff College in Khanapara, Guwahati from where you can get inputs (aasc.nic.in). For any specific query regarding preparation or strategy you can always write back to us. All the best for your preparation! "

Answer: Congratulation on your recent results. Let us forward an answer from Bornali Gohain one of our counsellors to your query. “Microbiology has immense scope in various fields thus it is advisable to apply for some of the good institutes like IISERs, if you can afford moving out of the state. Else Cotton College has some good faculty members. For the IISERs there are three modes of entry, you can take the INSA inspire fellowship, KVPY fellowship and a state board results based entry. One needs to sit for an entrance. Microbiology is a vast subject which are clinical/medical microbiology, pure microbiology etc. Accordingly you can select zoology or botany and opt for a specialisation during M.Sc. "
