Before pursuing the coaching, is it necessary for one to have a basic knowledge of the subjects of the SSC ?

The DOTS ACADEMY provides to its students the necessary orientation regarding the SSC which includes structure, syllabus and methodology of teaching.  A student may or may not know the basics.  But the DOTS ACADEMY starts from the basics and slowly but steadily inculcates the topics.

Why must one start early ?

We have students calling up a month before the exam asking for coaching. We tell them that he/she can sit in the class but we cannot assure success. A serious and focused study of at least five months is essential for the SSC exams.

When will the syllabus be completed ?

The syllabus will be completed in five months for regular batch.

Why is the course duration at the DOTS ACADEMY for such a long duration of one year ?

Our aim is to see you in a government job.  A short duration course may not help the students to keep up the motivation, inspiration and the skills necessary for clearing such an exam.  On completion of the syllabus, the students, if they wish, can attend the classes or practice the question papers that we provide.  This type of work ensures that the students are always in touch with the syllabus and subjects.


For both CGL and CHSL, the syllabus comprises of Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude, General Awareness and English Comprehension. For CGL, there are three tiers, the last tier being descriptive. In CHSL exam there are only two tiers, the last tier being descriptive.

Staff Selection Commission (SSC) is an agency which conducts exams to various central government services. The popular exams of SSC are Combined Graduate Level (SSC CGL), Combined Higher Secondary Exams (SSC CHSL), Central Police Officers Exams (SSC CPO) and Multi-tasking Staff Exam (SSC MTS). Though SSC exams have been very popular in other states, in Kerala it has remained a rather untrodden path. Lack of good SSC coaching centres in Kerala has also proved to be a limitation on the ambitions of aspirants in this direction.

DOTS ACADEMY has been a trailblazer in the field of SSC in Kerala. When DOTS ACADEMY started the SSC coaching centre at Trivandrum, SSC coaching in Kerala was unheard of. It was a period of mass absence in the exam halls with over 75% of question papers going wasted. The number of students who applied were few and even fewer were the number who attempted it. It was a herculean task to create an awareness of SSC to the students in Kerala who had hitherto been concentrating mostly on Bank and Kerala PSC exams.

The results have, however, been very enthusiastic. Within a year we could garner enough students and successfully place them in various services under the Central Government. Dotsians have set their marks in various ministries of central government, Food Corporation of India, Armed forces, Paramilitary forces, Intelligence Agencies, Tax and Audit Services, Railway Services, etc. Many are on the anvil to get into the services of the government.

Over a period of time, with greater demand coming up, DOTS ACADEMY has expanded itself in Kollam and Palakkad regions apart from Trivandrum. To make SSC coaching affordable and within reach to the students in Malabar, DOTS SSC coaching centre in Palakkad Town was opened. Another SSC coaching centre at Kollam, was also set up in the year 2018 for students in central Travancore.

DOTS ACADEMY provides a conducive atmosphere to its students with reading room facilities, library, online lab practice, 12 hours study room facility, facility for doubt clearance from expert faculties, regular mock tests and above all quality classes.  Presently, we have two batches – regular and weekend. Regular batches are from Monday to Friday. Weekend batches are only on Sundays. Course duration is for one year; providing support for all three stages of the written exam. Dedicated faculties and equally dedicated students have been our greatest assets. Joining Dots Academy ensures not just a ticket to government jobs but also helps in the overall development of the personality of the aspirant.

In this era of education becoming accessible through the umpteen videos and website uploads, DOTS ACADEMY provides the necessary phillip and encouragement ; and a propitious environment to realize the goal of the aspirant.
