UPSC IPS OFFICER : After failing in Prelims for 2 consecutive times, Neerja Shah, who became IPS by cracking UPSC Civil Services Exam in the third attempt, shares the experience gained during preparation.

Neerja Shah, who became an IPS by cracking the UPSC civil services exam in the third attempt after failing prelims twice in a row, has shared her three mistakes from the experience gained during preparation.

Candidates preparing for UPSC Civil Services Exam can learn from this.

Neerja Shah, who secured 213rd rank in UPSC Civil Services Exam 2020, has told that her first mistake was not to take this exam seriously.

She first tried to balance UPSC preparation with college and work, but she could not strike the right balance.

Very few mock tests were given. Even if I had cleared the prelims, I was not prepared for the mains at all. Candidates should understand what is expected of them regarding the exam.

Advising the candidates, he said that for two years every day 8-8 hours will have to be spent in studies.

Only with this level of hard work, grit and determination will you get a bit of luck.

Neerja Shah has completed her law studies from Gujarat National Law University. Along with this, he has also received the Legislative Assistants to members of Parliament (LAMP) fellowship.
