The Residential Coaching Academy (RCA) at the Centre for Coaching and Career Planning, Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), is currently accepting online applications for its free coaching program, which includes hostel accommodation, aimed at preparing candidates for the UPSC Civil Services (Preliminary-cum-Main) examination in 2024.

The application link will be activated on March 18. Interested individuals can register for the UPSC coaching program via the official website, jmicoe.in.

This year, there are 100 seats available through this entrance test. Hostel accommodation is mandatory for all admitted students. In the event of limited availability, hostel seats may be allocated based strictly on merit determined by the entrance test. RCA reserves the right to decrease intake if deserving candidates are insufficient.

Candidates are required to pay a monthly hostel maintenance fee of Rs 1000, which must be paid six months in advance (totaling Rs 6000). Subsequently, maintenance charges must be paid two months in advance. Female students will deposit their fees at the Girl Hostel/Provost Office.

Individuals from Minority, SC, ST, and women communities are eligible to apply for this program. The university will conduct UPSC entrance examinations at ten centers: Delhi, Srinagar, Jammu, Hyderabad, Guwahati, Mumbai, Patna, Lucknow, Bengaluru, and Malappuram.

The academy has demonstrated strong results in previous years, with Shruti Sharma securing All India Rank 1 in the Civil Services Examination 2021. Since its establishment, RCA has facilitated over 600 selections in Civil Services and other Central and State Services, as stated by the university.
