Senior Candidates who failed in Prelims

Hello. This was my 5th Attempt.
Have failed once in Language paper in 2013, Missed Prelims by 1.5 marks in 2015, Missed Mains by 10 marks in 2016.
This time(2017) despite getting 120+ in Prelims paper 1 I found myself out of list because of prelims paper 2
Anyway, I will be giving last attempt in 2018 for which I'm beginning to prepare for my optional subject.
I would like to know if there are any serious candidates who find themselves in the similar situation and how they are going about their prep.

  • Job backup?
  • This time it was my third attempt. 2015 did not qualify prelims as I laid too much emphasis on paper 2 (which was relevant until few months before the exam it was made qualifying). 2016 cleared prelims but two weeks prior to pre my mother was hospitalised and right up till mains she suffered from pyscho motor ailment aacentuated by depression. I had to take care of her as there is no one else in the house besides us. I could hardly study anything for 2016 mains and hence did not qualify. It took me some time to get my momentum back and then came 2017 prelims which I found was completely unorthodox and subjective leaving to open interpretation in many questions. Did not clear this time.
    I am now 29 years old. In 2014 I left my job as a finance journalist after experience of 3 years and enrolled in a coaching centre.
    I have been without any job for three years and surviving on my savings. Moreover I am living in a house owned by my brother in law and my sister and that makes me quite insecure as financially I have not contributed and living under somebody's house and for how long can I continue to do so.
    I am sure there are many like me in similar situations.
    It's hard to keep going on, yet there is a gut instinct that tells one could clear it. So far I have faced not only the academic hardship that is required but also personal hardship in the form of my mother's health who is still gradually recovering. MY BAD LUCK IS EXTREMELY BAD.
    But I still want to persevere and crack this exam but everyday I get overburdened by the fact that I am living in my brother in law's house, jobless and far away from becoming a Civil servant. I feel like a freeloader.
    Just wish GOD makes my life a little better in the coming years.

    I wish your mother a speedy recovery. I know things are hard now but focus on the bigger picture.
  • Don't know whether I will qualify to be called as senior or not.
    This was my third attempt was getting around 104 but I knew I won't clear it.
    Last two attempts cleared pre easily and in 2016 was out by 14marks in mains..mainly due to essay(don't know why such low marks).

    Hard to digest can't clear pre.
    But this is life.

    But one problem is that now am not finding study interesting at all. Just passing days since pre exam.

    But one thing i know will top 2018 cse for sure
  • This was my 5th attempt and continuous 3rd failure in pre.. I was expectin positive result and enrolled for mains test series and all but failed.. Right now I want to get into some job in this area only..will approach some institutes for work.. I hope I get some work for some months...
    I m depressed right now but I know I have to come out of it.. This is my dream job and I won't stop trying till me last chance..
    all i need is You Lord

    You have missed 2016 mains by 10 marks. All you need is just to get through prelims next year and I am sure you will in the final list.

    there are too many like us brother, that's also quite depressing/motivating the way we look at it, that our struggles or failures are not all that unique.

  • I have been failing consistently in this exam for lot many years and this year too is not an exception . How many mains and interviews ? These things are just irrelevant . Because only final list counts , other things are just plain stupidity.
    My experience :
    - How so ever well you prepare , there are lot many chances that u won't clear. Just studying hard from this day to the day just before the next pre , simply won't work . This exam has lot many variables that is not under ones control.
    - It's the best time to look for alternatives . Forget about ur time that u have spent in the past so many years . Just focus on ur alternatives . I know, it's not easy. I know how difficult to look for alternatives when u have none . And leaving the field of UPSC altogether still haunts .
    - Think and contemplate , how to use the information that u have acquired during the preparation process.You have wasted ur all years or not , wholesome , depends upon u .
    - One have no right to blame UPSC for ones failure . It's fair enough . U can't build a perfect system .
    - Never thinks that u wasted ur years in preparation. Don't insult urself . Try to think it helped u in maturing ur personality.
    - And believe me , struggles in early part of life is much appreciable than the later ones . It helps u in dealing with life better .

    Where all of your points are correct, I agree with all except the first one... 'how so ever well you prepare'...
    I think if you work hard enough, in the right direction, you will definitely succeed. Yes, there are numerous other factors at play, but If and Whenever, you put in the right amount of work, I believe, nothing can stop you from achieving your goal. The only struggle is to prevent yourself from getting distracted between preparation and making sure that you do all that is required with consistency and dedication.
    If one has not been successful, there was definitely something lacking somewhere. If 1100 people can do it, overcoming their own unique problems, then any other person can do it. You only have to identify your weaknesses and work on it.
    Such interpretations do not help anyone and create an environment of gloom around the exam...
    Experience and time has shown me that, Luck is directly proportional to the hard work you put in...
    So I will beg to differ... :smile:

    Pardon me maam , but that is just the naive and silly arguement . Exactly I had that comprehension in mind few years back. But as time passes, observed realities around, I enlightened myself that life is just simply not what we want it to be . Life is what it has to be . It's very important to be have a pragmatic approach .
    Why pragmatic approach :
    - if somehow u won't succeed , u will blame urself always. That is simply not good for ur future endeavours .
    - As per ur sayings ...if one work hard he will definitely succeed ......that simply doesn't work maam . Believe it simply doesn't . That is totally impractical . And there is saying that...there is always a scope of improvement ...so how will u know where ur limit ends. I am just laying out the facts. Just telling how the things are .
    - The person who used to get selected ...majority of them are lucky lot .. and how so ever attempts u take, u have to be lucky to get selected.
    - UPSC is just a hints of what reality is around .
    One last word of advice
    Always try to improve ur personality and wisdom whether u get anything or not in life . It's the success in life that's ultimately counts.

It's very important to be have a pragmatic approach .
    Why pragmatic approach :
    - if somehow u won't succeed , u will blame urself always. That is simply not good for ur future endeavours .
    - As per ur sayings ...if one work hard he will definitely succeed ......that simply doesn't work maam . Believe it simply doesn't . That is totally impractical . And there is saying that...there is always a scope of improvement ...so how will u know where ur limit ends. I am just laying out the facts. Just telling how the things are .
    - The person who used to get selected ...majority of them are lucky lot .. and how so ever attempts u take, u have to be lucky to get selected.
    - UPSC is just a hints of what reality is around .
    One last word of advice
    Always try to improve ur personality and wisdom whether u get anything or not in life . It's the success in life that's ultimately counts.

    Okay... I do get your perspective and still agree with you on most points... Its alright... We all have our own beliefs... :blush:

    Pardon me maam , but that is just the naive and silly arguement . Exactly I had that comprehension in mind few years back. But as time passes, observed realities around, I enlightened myself that life is just simply not what we want it to be . Life is what it has to be . It's very important to be have a pragmatic approach .
