Aparna Ramesh, who hails from Karnataka, has cleared the UPSC Civil Services (UPSC) exam with a full time job. UPSC exam is one of the toughest exam, so most of the candidates prepare for UPSC exam by leaving their job or taking a break from job, but Aparna Ramesh did not do so.

Aparna Ramesh, 28, said that it was not easy to manage time and balance oneself and academic life and it required consistent efforts. Aparna has secured 1004 marks including 825 in written test and 171 in personality test.

She has secured 35th rank in this examination. She believes that the management of job and exam preparation has become more difficult due to the pandemic.

Aparna said, “Since I had limited time, my strategy was to focus on preparation. I studied only those components which were relevant for the exam.

I didn’t let myself get distracted and unprepared by the limited material. My goal was to get the basics clear and then revise as much as possible instead of reading as many books as possible or mentioning more material,”

Aparna said that she decided to study from 4 am to 7 am every day before she started her officer career, after which she worked the whole day. On her weekly off, she used to study for at least 8 to 10 hours.

“I didn’t see any point in quitting my job to prepare for the exam, so I decided to balance both. It was my decision to strategize my performance, focus but focus on the subjects I have studied.”

Aparna said, “Since I had limited time, my strategy was to focus on preparation. I studied only those components which were relevant for the exam.

I didn’t let myself get distracted and unprepared by the limited material. My goal was to get the basics clear and then revise as much as possible instead of reading as many books as possible or mentioning more material,”

Let us tell you, Aparna has cleared the UPSC exam in the second attempt. She appeared for UPSC CSE 2019 for the first time but at that time could not crack the prelims as well.

Aparna said that she could not clear the prelims by a difference of few marks. UPSC CSE 2020 was her second and last attempt in civil services. Had she not cleared this exam she would have continued her work as Artitech cum Urban Planner today.

Preparing for the exam in 2019 proved to be an advantage for Aparna as she had covered her NCERT syllabus earlier. Aparna said that school level books are the foundation of civil services.

He then referred to the previous year question papers and analyzed his mistakes so that he could crack the exam in his second attempt. She also joined Amrita IAS Academy for preparation.

For History, Geography and Economics, Aparna referred only NCERT books of class 11th and 12th. For politics, he read M Laxmikant’s books and for current affairs, he read VisionIAS notes and referenced online news.

She also made notes on a daily basis while watching TV or reading newspapers to keep track of the latest happenings.

For prelims, she said the idea is to eliminate the wrong options and choose the right one. For this, attempting as many mock tests as possible will improve one’s skills and help the candidates to prepare a variety of question patterns that can be asked in the exam.
