    Coming to your question , Is it necessary to take coaching for this examination . It is depends upon your preparation we can not tell that . But if you have a confident then prepare yourself . But this examination is not easy one every thousand candidates appearing . With out proper preparation , you can not crack this examination . So if you have not a confident then coaching class better option .

    OTA Means Officer Training Academy Examination and this examination is conducted by Union Public Service Commission twice in a year . Minimum Qualification crack for this examination , the aspirant need to completed their graduate degree of a recognized University and there is no minimum marks required .
