A construction labourer's daughter from Thiruvananthapuram, Aswathy S, cleared Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) Civil Services Examination-2020, by achieving 481st rank.
While speaking to ANI on Saturday, Ms Aswathy said, "It was my fourth attempt at civil service examination. The last three times I could not clear the preliminary exams and I was a little anxious. I am happy now. To crack this examination, I focused on writing practice and maximum content improvisation, so that I could present my content well in the papers."
Mr Premkumar, her father, said, "I am very happy. Under difficult circumstances, she cleared the civil service exam. I am proud of her. She was excellent in her studies."
Earlier on Friday, the UPSC declared the final result of the Civil Services Examination, 2020 where a total of 761 candidates have been recommended for appointment.
Shubham Kumar from Katihar in Bihar has secured the first position in the exam.
