ESE 2018 Topper (AIR-17, CE) Reema Agarwal Shares Her Success Story

Come face-to-face with this brave girl, who chose nothing but persistent hard work, and left behind a blazing trail that will surely inspire generations to come. This JJS Noida B.Tech alumni chose a daring target in her innocence, and achieved it through her sheer valour…

IES Master: Take us through this inspirational journey, starting from JSS to UPSC?
Reema: I started preparing for ESE in 2015 basically at the end of my third year. I joined a coaching, but after joining I was not confident that I would be able to crack it in the first attempt. But I joined it because everyone was going for it. After I gave my first ESE exam i.e. ESE 2016, I was short by 34 marks to qualify for Interview. Then I realised that if I would have been confident, I would have done it. So then I joined IIT Delhi to pursue my Master’s as I got a decent GATE ranking. At IIT Delhi, the environment was very good.
After coming to IIT Delhi, I analysed very properly that what I have to do. How can I score very good marks in my second attempt. So what I did was that I prepared for 6 months. Basically during these 6 months, I did not solve a single question, I read only IES Master study material. So this plays a very important role in achieving good ranks in GATE as well as ESE. After that I followed test series very religiously, be it for Mains or Prelims. Then for Interview Guidance, I joined IES Master Mock Interview program.
