I gave a Mock Interview at BYJU'S in my first attempt & also in my second CSE attempt. In the early days of my UPSC CSE preparation, my ship was steered in the right direction.I also used to watch the International Relations series as well as the Daily Analysis of Hindu Newspaperon the BYJU'S IAS YouTube Channel



Vaibhav Rawat | AIR 25 CSE | 2020

Current Affairs topics are very well covered on BYJU'S website. “Economy of the Week” & “International Relations This Week” on BYJU’S Youtube Channel have always been my favorite. I had also participated in BYJU'S Mock Interview Preparation program for UPSC. The reviews and constructive feedback I received were very helpful in increasing my confidence



Gaurav Budania | AIR 13 CSE | 2020

I am really thankful to BYJU'S for their Interview Guidance Program. I was given analytical questions on one of my hobbies - Indian Mythology. The feedback helped in improving my answers for the actual Interview as well. Because of this,I was able to score 206 marks this year in the interview.I had also given the All India Open Mock test of BYJU'S for Prelims preparation. The paper structure was really good and it was actually very close to the actual paper that comes out in Prelims Examination.



Divyanshu Choudhary | AIR 30 CSE | 2020

I appeared for a Mock Interview with BYJU's and received some good feedback from very eminent experts. The faculty also advised me on what kind of questions to expect. They also boosted my confidence by saying that I was doing very well.



Sarthak Agarwal | AIR 17 CSE | 2020

I came across BYJU'S IAS preparation content and material during my Mains Preparation.BYJU'S has every detailed aspect of the syllabus which helped a lot in mains answer writing, which is the cornerstone of the examination. Sections like ‘The Newspaper Analysis of Hindu’ and ‘Economy This Week’ at BYJU'S YouTube Channel are really helpful in staying updated.
