If the preparation for the UPSC Civil Services exam is done properly, one can also be successful in less time. Many aspirants who passed the UPSC exam have told that there is no need to take everything from life and include it in the preparation. UPSC preparation can be done and success can be achieved even if you fulfill all your responsibilities. Many students work hard but fail the exam because they do not have much knowledge about preparing in the right direction. For aspirants who are confused or don’t know how to move in the right direction, the story of IAS officer Tejashwi Rana can serve as inspiration.

Tejashwi Rana belongs to Kurukshetra, Haryana. She wanted to do engineering from her early years, so she took the JEE exam after high school. And after that he studied at IIT Kanpur. During IIT, his interest in UPSC grew and he decided to prepare. To live up to her inclination, Tejashwi first appeared for UPSC in 2015 and also knew prelims, but failed in the mains. But where Tejashwi would give up, he succumbed only after having success on his second attempt.
While preparing, Tejashwi first went through the UPSC syllabus thoroughly and then started reading NCERT books from grades 6 to 12 to understand the basics. He strengthened his foundation by reading good books. He then chose the elective subject very carefully. He made a better schedule of preparation and took short notes every day by studying as much as possible.
