UPSC: Here we will tell you about a person who could not even clear the prelims in three attempts of UPSC but instead of giving up, he kept working hard and topped straight in the fourth attempt. Anand Vardhan, a resident of Siwan district of Bihar, got his early education from there. He was always very fast in studies. After completing his schooling, he completed his engineering degree from Delhi University. After completing his graduation, he started a job but in the meantime he made up his mind to clear UPSC. Along with the job, Anand continued to prepare for the UPSC exam. Due to the job, he could not get enough time for studies, so he joined the weekend class. Apart from this, whenever he got time, he used to study for UPSC.
Anand appeared for UPSC thrice but he could not even clear the prelims even once. Disappointed by this, instead of retracing his steps, Anand engaged in studies with double hard work and passion. Anand’s family members also supported him during this time. Then finally, in his fourth attempt of the year 2016, Anand cleared the UPSC exam and secured the seventh rank as well.
UPSC topper Anand Vardhan has a different opinion on coaching. He believes that whether to do coaching or not depends on the personality of the person. Some need the help of a teacher and for some self study is enough. By doing coaching you will definitely get the right guidance and complete information for the exam but you have to prepare yourself. If you want, you can also join online coaching.
