  • @imameazam so after 2 failures in mains and one bad mains, now you are more close to success & ahead of lakhs of student in knowing ''what doesn't work in getting good marks in mains".

    One student failed in 3 interviews, succeeded in 4th attempt and now he is IAS in J&K cadre. Recent example Anand Vardhan, many similar cases are there. What is stopping you ?

    You just need to take a break and come back with more positive energy.
  • Quit karna solution nahi mindset hota hai
    Problem ko front se deal karo chahe jaaha raho ya kuch bhi karo problem to aayegi

  • Never give up until the game is over... u might be thinking u that u have given ur mains this time badly, what if the the examiner thinks otherwise.... mains is highly subjective and there is always a possibility of clearing thought we think v have fated badly!! Keep up ur hopes!! Stay strong

    Bhai agar Gen nahi ho to quit mat karo, agar Gen ho to ek baar aur de do acche se .. give at least 60% of your time to optional and essay ..

  • "Never give up" is just a quote. If for even a single moment you think that you can do something more meaningful with your life, quit the preparation. It's really unwise to place a bet on your carrier if you're 27+ in age. Work on a solid backup,and I don't mean short term carrier like copy checking at an institute but a long term carrier plan and make CSE a secondary choice. The pattern of exam is really conducive now for working aspirants. I was in the same dilemma 9 months back when my mains results were to be announced. I started working full-time on my alternative carrier but luckily got in. More than anything this exam gives you a false sense of complacency and superiority,that you are doing something which an ordinary person can't do. While the truth is after three years of preparation neither you are adding anything to your knowledge nor to the family or society. Deep down we know it ourselves, just not accept it overtly.

    Sorry to hear about you.
    This is one fear we all have to live with . what if we dont make it despite all our efforts. despite working hard. despite being better than a lot of people who make it.

    but that is how the exam is designed. its not the toughness or the competition that makes us afraid. it is the unpredictable nature of the exam.

    having said that, i would really advice you to ( advice may be a wrong word, since i am no one to advice you, given i am not in the final list myself, while everyone, often equally or less competent, around me is. )

    - figure out why you are performing poorly
    - speed problem or knowlegde problem or both
    - how to solve that problem
    - do you have positive people or negative people or none around you
    - have you shown your answers to someone? if you dont mind, i can review your answer for once. i dont know much about upsc, but this much i know that if you structure your answer well, and write it pointwise or paragraphwise - doesnt matter - but write in a structured manner - you will get above average marks to clear the mains and reach the interview round.

    I have not cleared the interview myself, so i may not be competent to guide you over "how to become IAS"

  • Encouragement,motivation etc are required for first and second attempters. After that you got to be realistic. I know people who cleared it in their fifth or sixth attempts having appeared in four consecutive interviews. They didn't quit the preparation but were already in high paying permanent jobs. If they had failed in sixth attempt ( which is mighty possible), they could still get on with their lives, feel sorry for one or two years, and then focus on their family and carrier. This cushion is absent for those kept reading inspirational quotes till their sixth attempt. All the best for your future endeavours
  • If you have age/attempt left, give one in 2019. A sabbatical helps sometimes!!

    Take upsc as a long term goal now.

    Plan and execute the preparation for two or three years depending on your situation. Prepare like a crazy mad person. Exams should become a formality, your rank should be decided the moment you finish your preparation.

    Meanwhile also work on a career path which will make you happy mentally and monetarily.

    If you feel no attachment with upsc, just leave it. Hop on to another train towards your destiny.

    Hardwork will take you everywhere you want. Just keep working harder and harder. You will go places and be a happy person.
    Saw the passion in my vulnerabilities? Now see the strength in my resolution.

    Exactly. After 2-3 years 2nd career is a must, dont just go from 21 to 30 but plan the if you get in and if you do not parts of the story. This exam kills not one but two years due to the pattern. Also there is not much to gain by sitting unless you have a family backup and a sound mind that can take being idle.
    If nothing enroll for some distance learning degree.
    I have a friend who gave 2 interviews in two attempts both times less than 12 marks betwen him and the list. He did not apply this year and went on to get a job. Your good college tag also fades away after some time. So do not play with many years of your youth.
    With present position you can surely manage to study even after working then leave when mains are near. Choose work profile accordingly. Tc
