    Optional Subjects

    I think one’s educational background and interest are primarily important. Further one should not care much about what optional subjects are popular and fashionable.
    One should choose according to his/ her strengths . Also you should consider whether good guidance is available for that particular optional

    Prelims: Commerce
    Mains: Commerce & Public Administration


    Success Plan

    IAS - AGMUT Cadre

    To become IAS was always my dream.
    No job substitutes the job profile, exposure and opportunities to work and make an impact that civil services provide and therefore one is always self-motivated.
    This was my 2nd attempt. In the first attempt I secured 93rd rank and I was allotted Indian Police Service. It  was just normal preparation and since optional carried higher weightage, I was more focused on those.
    I really worked hard and was fortunate to have the company of seniors who gave me right advice.
    I had a strong belief that for Success anybody needs hard work and luck besides plenty of blessings and good wishes; at least in my case it worked.

    Time Management
    I honestly did not felt any problem with Time Management. If one adheres to the word limit prescribed by upsc…there is no such problem

    Prelims

    I did not attempt questions where I was not fully convinced about the solution and attempted only those where I was sufficiently convinced

    Mains

    Well in this case guidance of my mentors, Pavan Sir of Srirams and R.S.AGGARWAL sir of Rankers Classes really helped for Public Administration  and Commerce respectively.
    Also I tried to prepare comprehensively

    Essay

    No special preparation other than the newspaper and Yojana magazine.
    I wrote on ‘Preparation of our society on India’s global leadership role’ as I found it to be very current-oriented and a relevant issue that can be discussed threadbare

    Interview

    This time I hardly got much tme to prepare as I was in my IPS training but I still brushed up on current affairs and my Bio-data.
    I faced Lt. General Nirbhay Sharma sir’s board.


    Interview Questions

    The interview covered wide ranging issues and lasted for about 50 minutes.
    Some of the issues raised were history of policing in India, policing in London and US , communalism , naxalism , why IAS as career etc

    Advice

    Just be focused and have faith in yourself.
