Those who missed selection this year – read this!
First of all, don’t lose your confidence or self-esteem. There is no big difference between you and those who made it into the final mark list. Being qualified for the UPSC interview itself speaks about your caliber.
You are one of the top 2000 candidates out of the 10,00,000 candidates who applied for the exam. Had there been 2000 vacancies, you all would be selected. However, there were only 800 vacancies. And, everyone cannot be selected.
You should note that all those who selected this year are not first-timers. Apart from a few, most of them may have achieved their success in their 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th or subsequent attempts.
The point here is not to lose focus. Very often only difference between success and failure is one more try.
If you have attempts left for this year, start preparing right away – with new vigour.
Those who don’t have attempt left, realize that UPSC is not the end of life. Whatever experience you gained in the UPSC exam process would have changed your way of thinking. You will never live a mediocre life. Your destination is different. Find it and strive for success there.
