It has been a common observation that even a student with sound academic background and above-average intelligence fail in this examination despite his best preparation. Such a student only prepares his course but fails to prepare himself. This exam requires one to prepare not only his subjects and course but also himself. This requires a practical attunement of one's personality to the demands and requirements of this exam. The seminars address these areas and focus on enabling the participants to develop abilities to face the problems and come up with solutions rather than run away from them.
The students, through the seminars, are taught the art of success—the art of managing self , time management, energy management, mind management and human resources management.

An attitudinal change and personality development is the basic motto of the seminars. And often, the result is - a paradigmatic shift in the way the participants think about virtually everything. Students, teachers and every other person who has participated in the seminars presented by Mr. AK Mishra, has been highly appreciative of such programmes.
