Amit Pal, a must read for the I success stories.
Amit Pal comes from a Ludhiana Punjab and his father is a retired lecturer and his mom is a house maker. But his elder brother Ajay Pal Sharma is an IPS officer and now recently he is posted as an SSP of the state of Uttar Pradesh.
Amit Pal was incredibly happy about his success but more than him was his father as he wanted his sons to do something and work for the educational sector and become a director general . as this sector needs so much of help and can do extremely good in case it gets that facilities and contribution from the government bodies.
Amit Pal had never taken any coaching for the UPSC examination, and he believes in hard work only and he wanted become one of the IAS officer and fulfill his parents dreams. Amit’s mother says my both the sons have made me proud.
Amit Pal Sharma completed his school from the RS Model School which is in Shastri Nagar and After completing his school he opted for MBBS from the Government Medical College which is in Patiala in the year of 2013 and then he aspired to be in his brother’s footstep and study by the Union public service examination. The inspiration and the desire to further go for the Civil Services came when he was a school student.
In an interview, Amit Pal says that “It was the guidance of my father, motivation of Amarjit Pal Sharma, his elder brother who also holds MBBS degree and inspiration from school principal Mohal Lal Kalra, because of which I was rightly inclined towards joining Civil Services right from my school days,”
As amit’s father was already teaching in the college Amit chose Punjabi literature as his optional exam as this would help him a lot.
Amit says that one should always choose his optional exams carefully and should always choose a subject which is around his area of knowledge as this makes the work simpler and one even saves time.
This is something one should work on, time is a very precious element in the union public service commission examination and one should always focus on it.
Amit Pal made it to IAS officer in his third attempt . prior to this in his first attempt he secured a 600th rank and he was selected for allied services but that was not what he wanted and so he chose to give another try and in his second attempt he got 139th rank and got shortlisted for IPS service but this was also not something that Amit Pal wanted and he was not happy and so he decided to give another attempt and in his this 3 rd and final attempt he made the 17th position and finally secured his dream position and his efforts paid of to him
Amit Pal says that one should be completely self disciplined and self motivated as well as self-confident to clear the UPSC examination.
And should be regular with studies. A studying for nearly 15 to 14 hrs a day was a must according to him and coaching classes is not essential if a person is dedicated enough he can clear the examination without any help of the coaching classes.
Amit Pal himself did not opt for any coaching classes. He always believed in self study and hard work. Hard work is the key to success and confidence is a mantra for clearing the interview examination of the UPSC.
One should not give up on the dreams and should be constant in spite of failing in his attempts.
Amit Pal was highly motivated by his brother and as well as his family. He gives the full credit to the family and says that they helped him to work for his success and he would not be able to crack this if he was not been supported by them.
This plays a significant role in an IAS aspirant, and he should be disciplined and dedicated.
If these two things work hand in hand, then any candidate can clear the UPSC Examination with flying colors without any coaching.
Indeed, sir, your story is an inspiration to all the candidates who have chosen to study on their own!
Congratulations and thank you for such motivational tips.
