It is possible to prepare for UPSC CSE without coaching and many people have done it over the years.
But I think one’s decision about joining coaching should not be based on whether it is possible or not.
It should be a purely personal decision based on the analysis of one’s strengths and weaknesses.
In an exam like CSE what works for one might not work for another.
Ask yourself if it is possible to prepare for UPSC CSE without coaching.
If you feel fairly confident then go ahead and prepare on your own.
If not, then do whatever it takes to gain confidence. Coaching, mocks, study circles, whatever it takes.
However, if circumstances prevent you from joining a coaching class even when you feel the need, then please do not feel disheartened. Internet is a great equalizer and there are many people in the exact same situation as yours who have utilized this great resource to secure a good rank.
