New Delhi, Sep 20: Kanshika Singh Sagar, an Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officer serving at the Embassy of India at Ashgabat, Turkmenistan failed in her UPSC prelims for civil services. However, she did not give up, but pursued with more dedication and cleared the examination in 2018 in her second attempt with AIR of 416.
Kanshika’s first attempt in the UPSC examination was in 2017. She did not qualify for the main examination and failed in the prelims itself. She did not lose heart and prepared for a year with more dedication and cleared the examination in 2018. Kanishka showed outstanding performance and cleared prelims, mains and interview of UPSC CSE 2017 with an excellent AIR 146.
Mock tests is the key according to Kanshika. One has to analyse what did not go right in the mock test and has to correct the shortcomings. This gives a better chance for candidates to clear the UPSC.
