Don’t Repeat Your Mistakes: IAS Topper

AIR 2 of CSE 2019 Jatin Kishore believes that keeping the motivation alive is the mantra for success in UPSC. Also very important, for him, is not to repeat the earlier mistakes.

All it takes to clear the UPSC exam is self-motivation, diligence and patience. Most of aspirants drop their efforts mid way because of the failures in the beginning. The success rate in UPSC is very low and competition is also tough, but with hard work nothing is impossible. The All India Rank -2 holder Jatin Kishore of CSE 2019 has proved this with his success. 

In 2018, when he gave his first attempt, Mr Kishore  couldn’t even cross the first step of prelim. Like everyone else he was also upset with his failure, but he didn’t let that affect his motivation level. The next time he prepared harder, changed his strategy a bit and bagged the rank two and stood among the toppers. 

Before clearing the UPSC, Mr Kishore also cracked the Indian Economic Service exam and was posted as the Assistant Director in Ministry of Rural Development. While preparing for his second attempt, Mr. Kishore, who is from Delhi, was also working and studying simultaneously.

IMPORTANCE OF NOT LOSING HOPE

When Mr. Kishor couldn’t crack the prelims, he started finding out the reason behind his failure instead of getting upset about it. In an interview with a media organization he said, “I was upset for a while with the result. However, that was not the end of the road. If I had failed in my second attempt, I would have maximized my effort because losing hope is not an option. Some people clear it in first attempt and some takes 3-4 attempts. It doesn’t make any difference. The aspirants have to make sure they do not repeat the same mistakes and work hard. I also realized my shortcoming and found that I was too afraid to take risk. That is why I only attempted 70 out of 100 questions in the prelims, during my first attempt”. 

For his next attempt, he was determined to take risks and solve as many questions as he could. One has to be more prepared when taking risks, and this time he solved good number of mock tests for the practice. 

REVISE AS MANY TIMES AS YOU CAN

Mr. Kishore believes that nowadays, lots of material is available on internet so it is not really necessary to join any coaching classes. He also said that most of people just get confused and try to read from various sources. “I won’t advise this. Reading too many things is not important. Rather, one should focus on revising as many times as possible. It is difficult to store that much information and it could also cloud your judgment while answering a question”, he said. 

At present, Mr Kishore is under training in LBSNAA at Mussoorie.
