My journey towards AIR 39!!

I would like to start by thanking the person whose guidance made the journey pleasant and interesting, Arjun Suresh Sir. I believe it’s the legacy that he is continuing. As Lord Krishna guided Arjun during war similarly Arjun Sir is guiding all of us during our war.

I would also like to thanks Bikram Sir and other GO members for their contribution in my journey.


Students asked me whether to join a coaching institute? Which institute should I join?

I believe there are two ways you can gain knowledge.

  1. Read all the reference textbooks. Do everything by your own.
  2. Learn from those who are already master in it.

There are pros and cons of both. From textbooks, you get exact information but effort and time needed is more. To minimize your effort, you can get the guidance from GateOverflow. On the other part, from the coaching institutes you get required information and guidance in relatively less time.

I would like to say that it totally depends on you.

I chose mix and match of both the options. There is nothing bad in either of the option. As I said it varies from person to person.


Many candidates asked me about the strategy.

I believe,

Success is an iceberg! Yeah, that’s right.

For people, success seems to be small and easy from outside but they don’t realize the dedication, hard work, good habits, disappointments, sacrifices, failure and persistence behind it.

To achieve a good rank, first thing you need is a good time table then you have to follow it accordingly till the exam date.

I had a fixed time table. My day started at 6 am and ended at 11 pm. Also, it’s important to give priority to health. I used to workout daily for 2 hours.

Coming to the studies part. I completed the syllabus in two and a half months and then started the real part that is practicing and revising. I daily studied for 6 to 8 hours. Note that here ‘daily’ is important aspect, number of hours depends on the individual.

At the end, I would like to say don’t follow anyone. Everyone has their own strategy that suits them and may not suit you. So set your own time table, your boundaries and work smarter. All the best!!
