'Consistency In Efforts,Perseverance Is Key To Success': Nandini KR


New Delhi:  In June 2017, when Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), the recruiter for civil services in the country declared the final results, Nandini KR not only cleared the exam but also became a role model for lakhs of aspirants in the country. Ms Nandini described consistent effort and perseverance as the key to her feat, which came after three failures. It was in 2015, she was cleared the exam with AIR 849 but could not make it to her dream: IAS. Her mustering her courage and hardwork, she finally made it to the first rank.

UPSC will conduct civil services main exam in October

"My first preference was the IAS. I think I will be getting it," she told NDTV, rather modestly, describing the "consistency in efforts and perseverance" as the secret behind her success. Ms Nandini, who spends time reading literature or playing volleyball, said this was her message to other civil service aspirants as well.

Nandini KR scored 55.3 per cent, which reveals tough standard adopted by the UPSC in the prestigious examination to select the country's bureaucrats.

It was a dream come true for the 26 year old civil engineer from Kolar district, Karnataka to grab the first position from among 10 lakh candidates, on an average, who appear for the exam. This year, just 1,100 got through but only 180 of them will get the coveted IAS. The rest will get any of the remaining 20-odd civil services such as the police, foreign or revenue service.
