Strategy, consistency, and internal motivation- these are the virtues that our HCS topper Mr. Aditya Ranga used as weapons to win the battle of becoming a civil servant. Just like everyone else, he too had a lot of constraints which repeatedly affected and sometimes even halted his preparation.
Aditya, our bright-eyed topper tells us that he had never been good at studies whether in school or college. And just like every other person, he was often compared to his sister who is now a practicing doctor! Today, he stands tall amongst the toppers, thrashing the idea of an excellent academic record which he says, is irrelevant for the civil services exam. He says that the fact that Public Service Commission’s require the candidates go through a full-fledged process of Prelims, Mains and Interview is the proof that they require people with good life skills and just a basic knowledge rather than school toppers or gold medalists.
With around 17 reappears in the first three years of B Tech, Aditya found his ground in the final year of graduation when he came across the Deputy Commissioner of his area. For Aditya, it was a life-changing experience. He was amazed at the way a person could be such an important exponent for positive change. And that day, he decided to prepare for the Civil Services Exam. He cleared all his reappears in the fourth year itself and started his preparation.
