SNTCSSC provides intensive coaching for both UPSC CSE Prelims and Mains. The General Studies classes have been outsourced to two nationally reputed Institutes viz., Khan Study Group (KSG) and Shankar IAS Academy (SIA). The optional subjects are taught by Guest Faculty including retired and serving Professors/Readers/Associate Professors/Assistant Professors from different Universities and their affiliated colleges in the state. Serving and retired senior officials also conduct sessions.

All subjects in the syllabi are covered comprehensively and regular class assessments are taken for both MCQ based (for Prelims) and Long Answer Type Questions (for Mains). Prelims Mock Test and Mains Mock Test Series are conducted before the UPSC CSE Prelims and UPSC CSE Mains respectively.

Mock Interview sessions are conducted for the students who clear the mains. Apart from the regular course the SNTCSSC is also conducting Crash Courses for Prelims in online mode.

The admission notification is published on our website as well as in major newspapers. The admission test is conducted subsequently. The admission test is based on the UPSC CSE Prelims syllabus.
