IRS Anjani Kumar Pandey Tips to Crack UPSC: Every year lakhs of candidates appear for the UPSC Civil Services Examination, but only a few of them are able to pass the examination.
In fact, this exam is so difficult that most candidates require multiple attempts to pass it. However, despite this, there are many candidates who are not able to pass the examination despite many attempts.
So today we are going to tell you about some special tips given by IRS officer Anjani Kumar Pandey. If you too are failing in your initial attempts then you can succeed in UPSC by adopting these tips.
IRS Anjani Kumar Pandey says, “I failed in my first attempt because I could not give my best. I failed in my second attempt also, although I had studied very well for the exam.
I also failed in my third attempt, although I was expected to rank in the exam. This happened. But after learning something from my previous three attempts, I succeeded in my fourth attempt.”
Anjani Kumar Pandey says that it is normal to fail in UPSC or any exam in life. Actually, most of the candidates selected in UPSC fail in their first attempt or any attempt.
Actually, more than 50 percent candidates have to take 3 to 4 attempts to pass UPSC. However, the question is what to do after failing in the exam. In such a situation, you can pay attention to some tips given below, which will help you a lot in cracking this exam.
1. Analyze your marks – Marks tell you your status and progress in UPSC. So analyze the marks obtained in the previous attempt and focus on the areas where you have scored less marks. For example, I was getting low or average marks in General Studies, so I worked in General Studies.
I always scored better marks in Essay with less effort, so I thought about scoring more marks in Essay as that was my strong area. Focus on all those strong areas where you can score a lot of marks with very little effort. Anjani Kumar says I used to score very good marks in history optional and essay, so I used to score high marks in my strong areas.
2. Mains Exam Series and Answer Writing Practice – You will need a good test series for Mains to understand your actual progress. Apart from this, there will be a great need for a mentor who will do proper copy checking and give proper feedback.
So that you can honestly work on your answers and improve the answers. Therefore, before appearing in the main examination, practice well and write well. There is no point in merely studying when it cannot be replicated in the actual exam.
3. Presentation of answers – Whatever you write in the main examination should be presented well. In UPSC you not only have to cover all the points thoroughly but also have to see whether you have covered all the points well or not.
Even if you write general answers, make sure to cover all the points. Presenting the answer in groups, points, paragraphs or diagrams will increase the quality of your answer. The examiner should be able to clearly see that the answer covers all the points.
4. Fortune favors the brave – UPSC exam is a gamble. I personally believe that there is not much difference between a topper and a mains or someone who appears for the interview but fails to make it to the final list.
Luck factor is very important in UPSC because of subjectivity. But it is also true that the effort is big and if one keeps working hard, usually one day he gets selected or becomes successful in other areas of life.
