How gratifying it is to see all their hard work, dedication and sacrifice bear fruit.

There are bound to be aspirants who do not make the cut at each stage, motivation for whom is categorized as below:

  • Aspirants who made to the list should not become less ambitious. They must remember that it is a relative exam and even a mark can make a difference and that does not make you any less worthy. Individualistic thinking is important- analyse what might have gone wrong but do not overdo it and accordingly plan the future course of action.
  • Aspirants who appeared for interview but did not get a rank should never back down. Be mentally strong to accept the result with poise. Without overdoing analyse the reasons for failure(after seeing marks etc) and chalk out strategy accordingly.
  • Aspirants who failed at the mains/prelims stage or will attempt first time should be calm and composed. Do a diligent SWOT analysis of the syllabus, preparation, time schedule etc and think and plan accordingly with a new strategy.
  • And finally, Aspirants who made to the final list with expected rank or higher than expected rank should not become arrogant. They should enter the world of challenges with the traits essential to be a civil servant and be an inspiration and motivation to others.
