The Leadership Team

The RICE Methodology will help turn your dreams into reality, and you will find yourself learning, not so much from failure, but from study material that has been painstakingly curated to ensure your success. In school, students are used to studying four or five subjects under the stream of their interest: Science, Commerce or Arts. For the professional competitive exams for government jobs, it is not enough to acquire knowledge and information in only your interest area. Now, you have to be proficient in almost 20 subjects across streams. RICE is here to help you hone the process of “Capacity Buildup”. For 1.5 to 2 years, you have to practice every day to expand your horizons. For example, a Science student has to develop an in-depth understanding of Arts subjects, and vice versa. If you can embrace this philosophy, no doubt you will be successful.
