Clearing an IAS EXAM is not an easy task but if the candidate clears this exam at that stage where most of the students gave up is a commendable task. Yes, it is true there are many students who not only clear this exam but also topped with such circumstance where it becomes impossible for them to even prepare for the exam. Here we discuss some of them.
Dr. T Shubhamangala
She is on the top of the list of 2018. She is a Gynecologist and Mother of a 3.5-year-old baby boy. She started preparing for the exam using online coaching method and got 147 rank in all over India for clearing prelim at the age of 34years. When she was asked why she has chosen this career she said,
”Being a gynecologist, I understood that I could only treat the visible part of the diseases that patients had. The social and infrastructure challenges are in fact major factors that need to be addressed. Hence I decided to study for UPSC”.
Again Anu Kumari a mother of the 4-year child had scored the second rank in UPSC Civil Services Exam 2017 at the age of 31 years. This was her second attempt in UPSC CSE as in her first attempt she was left with one mark only. She hails from Haryana’s Sonipat. She was the topper among female candidates. Before clearing UPSC exam she was working in the corporate sector.
Now, Anu Kumari has been named the brand ambassador for the ‘Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao’ programme in her home district Sonipat by the Haryana government.
From more than 10 lakhs candidates who apply for the UPSC exam, Anudeep Durishetty from Hyderabad got the 1st Rank.
He is an Electronic Engineer from BITS Pilani in Rajasthan in 2011. His first job was in Google and later on, he was selected as Assistant Commissioner (P) at Indian Revenue Service (IRS), Government of India. Anudeep’s father is an Assistant Engineer while his mother is a home-maker.
This is his fifth attempt at Civils. He qualified the examination with Anthropology as his optional subject. Anudeep prepared without any major assistance from any coaching institution.
He is the man who had zero ideas of IAS job, roles and responsibilities. He just starts his journey in search of a man who has powerful life, big bungalow and enjoying a luxurious life. His search for the man took a shape of an IAS officer.
He is a self-motivated person who scores 1016 Rank in UPSC exam. During his schooling, he went to an average English medium school, where even the teachers can’t speak English. But he did his written exam and interview in English. He did B.Tech.in Civil engineering from MNNIT Allahabad at the age of 19 only. He joined TCS as a Java Developer and simultaneously started preparing for various competitive exams. He cleared various exam conducted by SSC, SBI, IBPS etc. before emerging successful in UPSC Civil Services Exam. With every passing interview, his level of confidence also goes on increasing.
He is always thankful for family and few his friends who always there for him throughout the journey of IAS. His own words,
“Getting into Civil Services is not the end, but just a beginning”
Anju Arun Kumar
She cleared her IAS exam in her 6th attempt. Anju started her UPSC preparation right after B.Tech and got the selection to IAAS first. But her ambition was IAS. Her subsequent attempts landed her in IRS. She got married by then. But till after she keeps on practicing for her dream job rather than just give up there.
She comes from a normal middle-class family. Her father is a retired engineer, and mother is a homemaker. She had done her entire schooling in Bahrain, where her dad used to work. She had come to Kerala to do B.tech from where she was straight away propelled into CSE-mode, and so she didn’t take up my placement job. She worked in IA&AS, where she was first an Officer Trainee, and later posted as Deputy Accountant General in Dehradun. she later joined IRS (C&CE), where she is currently undergoing training in NACEN, Faridabad.
He is the well-known name who cleared IAS exam in the first attempt with the Rank 356 at the age of only 23 years. Avneet, the son of a farmer from Rajasthan managed his time so well, that he prepared for the IAS exam even while doing his post-graduation and emerged successful in his first attempt.
My father is a farmer and mother is a housewife. : I went to Nimawat Public School, Fatehpur, Sikar (Rajasthan), a boarding school, when I was 5. I completed my entire school education from this school (1st-12th). I was again a hosteler in the Hindu College Hostel. I opted for B.Sc. Honors in mathematics as I was really fond of maths as a subject then. My stay in the Hindu college was a big boost to my personality in terms of confidence level and helped me discover various aspects of my personality and to grove them.
He shared some of his words,
“There is no secret to my success other than the consistent hard work. Complete dedication towards the exam for over a year has made the dream come true. And the preparation strategy for prelims and mains was not isolated from each other. Since almost all the syllabus of prelims overlaps with that of mains, so I followed an integrated approach for prelims and mains. And the specifically prelims oriented preparations began only 3 months before the prelims.”
Hope the above article will be inspiring for those who had to give up their dream and others who are still living their dream. We wish the next story we may publish will be of reader’s.
All the best for those who are preparing and a friendly advice for others to start preparing today before you reach the maximum eligibility criteria and enjoy the most powerful position in civil services.
