“My focus was to cover targeted syllabus every day. UPSC demands consistency and sometime I felt that I was not consistent but my father encouraged me. My father is a farmer and mother is housewife”, he added.“After completing my graduation I took coaching for Staff selection commission (SSC) and got first job as Income Tax officer in Delhi five years ago. I had appeared for UPSC exam four times. Last year, I got 260th rank and now I am posted as Indian Revenue Officer in Faridabad”, the UPSC topper further added.

Pradeep Singh said that it was very difficult for him to study and do job at the same time. “My few friends also helped me in cracking this exam. I have achieved this feat by doing self study. At one time, I thought to stop preparing for IAS, but my father told me not to lose patience and do hard work. Self-motivation is the best key to achieve any goal. Do not listen to what others are saying, only an individual knows his/her potential”
