He is 2019 batch IAS officer Sumit Yadav, who has made his name in the state’s bureaucracy for his revolutionary steps in the education sector. He cracked UPSC CSE with 279th rank in 2018 in his very first attempt.

In this exclusive video Interview with Indian Masterminds, Mr. Yadav talked about his UPSC journey, gave his message for aspirants, and shared how he managed to blend technology in his initiatives.

BACKGROUND

Mr. Yadav originally hails from Rewari, Haryana. But his family is now settled in Alwar, Rajasthan. His father runs a company.

After his 10th, he moved to Kota for JEE preparation. He cracked the JEE exam and got admission in IIT Delhi.

In his final year of engineering, he decided to go for civil services as his career. So, he joined coaching for few months.

But, after completing engineering in 2016, he got selected in Amazon through campus placement. He worked there for almost a year in Gurgaon. But, soon, he realized that UPSC is a better option for him, and he resigned in 2017.

He shifted to Delhi and started UPSC preparation again. In 2018, he cracked CSE in his first attempt and got 279th rank. He became an IAS officer.

UPSC PREPARATION

His optional was Chemistry. He believes that UPSC preparation demands a routine and regularity besides hard work.

He advises that one has to make a time-table and follow it at any cost. He made small goals on daily basis and monthly basis and completed these on time. But he took care to study different subjects in his daily routine, so that it would not get boring.

He also focussed on answer writing practice, solving test-series and PYQs.

For answer writing practice, he took help of few websites and coaching institutes. He got his copies checked from there and some peers groups. He also participated in group discussions.

MESSAGE FOR ASPIRANTS

Giving suggestions for UPSC aspirants, Mr. Yadav said, “There are some basic qualities that should be in UPSC aspirants. If one has those, then surely he or she will get success. First, never fear hard work. There is no shortcut. Second, you have to develop persistence. Never take your failures to heart, and always try to improve yourself. Lastly, always carry self-confidence and self-belief. Your marks do not describe who you are, only your hard work does.”

He also asked aspirants to always take care of their mental health and share their issues with their guardians.
