The BPSC results were announced on Monday. The BTech civil engineer graduate of the IIT Delhi achieved this rank in the first attempt at the state examination. With two successive failures in the UPSC Civil ServiceC The test was the civil service test in Bihar Plan B for the man from Darbhanga.
“After graduating in 2015, I stayed in Delhi and began preparing for the UPSC civil servant exam. I did not take part in any coaching and prepared myself for the exam by studying myself. But I couldn’t get the result I wanted. I passed the preliminary rounds twice, but didn’t pass the main test, ”says Anand about his first few days of preparation.

“After two consecutive unsuccessful attempts, I had to look out for a plan B. So I showed up for the state examination and the engineering service examination. In the meantime I have also applied for a recruitment campaign at BHEL, ”he adds.
Anand has passed all of the alternate exams he has taken and is currently working as an engineer with Indian Railways after passing the UPSC engineering services exam. He had taken the BPSC 64th CCE exam prior to the engineering services exam, but the result was delayed by four years.
Commenting on his preparation strategy for the BPSC exam, Anand said, “I studied religiously for 6-8 hours a day. My only strategy was to revise the mandatory books and NCERTs. I solved several mock papers to test my preparation. When I was preparing for UPSC, most of the curricula clashed with my preparation. Therefore, I did not refer to additional resources. “
Anurag referred to the Indian politics of Laxmikant, Ramesh Singh for economics, GC Leong for geography and also followed up some YouTube channels for topical affairs and concept clarity. Apart from trial tests, Anurag has not attended any classroom training and has fully prepared itself through self-study.
Anurag had been socially active during the preparation. He believes contact with others has kept him peppy and motivated. As a football fan, he consistently followed all the games during his preparation time.
“It is often said that once you are part of the administration, real life begins. Sacrifice of current time and social life is often justified by many successful candidates. But I never believed in that theory. For me, every phase of life is priceless and should be enjoyed now. That’s why I kept in touch with friends and family during the preparation phase, ”says Anand.

For the aspiring candidates at BPSC and UPSC, Anand suggests that an aspirant shouldn’t worry about failure on the first two attempts. These attempts should be carried out with the utmost sincerity and devotion. Unfortunately, if success is not achieved, a candidate should look for a Plan B but never interrupt preparation for these exams.
Anand passed the 2020 UPSC Official Main Examination and will appear for his interview in August 2021. He draws his inspiration from his family and roommates, who have motivated him to try again every time he fails.
