Success Story of IAS Topper Mayank Mittal: Mayank Mittal passed the UPSC CSE exam of the year 2019 with 29th rank. This was his second attempt. Even before this, he had given UPSC Civil Services Exam once and was successful. That is, Mayank gave two prompts of UPSC CSE and got selected in both. Rank 105 at first, under which he was not satisfied with the service, so he gave the exam again. This time Mayank’s rank came 29. Under this rank, he got his desired IAS post.
One of the main advice given by Mayank to other candidates is that they should not hurry to prepare for the exam and get to know everything about the exam before the rest. Mayank says from his experience that many times candidates are so quick to prepare for the exam that they do not finish properly till the syllabus and get into the field. Avoid this haste. In an interview given to the Delhi Knowledge Track, Mayank spoke on various topics.
Prepare from last year’s papers-
Mayank first of all recommend to watch the syllabus properly, then ask to make strategy and follow it. According to them, if you plan everything then it will be easy. Nothing will be left and everything will be covered within time.
Mayank further says that to understand the exam format one can see the previous year’s papers. These are a better option than a question paper found in any coaching. The next advice Mayank gives is that two types of question papers are available in the market, one contains question paper according to the year and one according to the topic. According to Mayank, take the question paper with the topic and when a topic is ready, give the paper and check how your preparation is.

Mayank’s advice –
Mayank says that start preparing for both pre and mains from the first day. If you plan different preparations, the syllabus will never end. Not only this, the amount of time left for the Mains examination after the pre, does not get fulfilled. If you are taking the time of one year in mind and have not already started preparing for men, then you will never be able to finish it in time. Because it is the time of revision, answer writing practice, giving mock tests and clearing the dots. Preparation for something new cannot begin at this time.
Keep in mind one thing here that apart from the rest of the papers, give equal importance to the papers of Essay and Ethics. Often candidates ignore them. Now come to the next important thing and that is answer writing. Unlike other candidates, Mayank says that there is no need for much practice, but even writing one answer a day is enough. Just go on analyzing your mistakes and keep it in place where there is scope for improvement. One more thing is that if you take time to get success then do not get upset, everyone’s journey here is not the same. If someone reaches the floor quickly, then someone takes time.
