IPS Success Story: Although the expression “Impossible Itself Says I’m Possible” may sound corny, Aditya, an IPS officer who failed 30 competitive exams, including the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE), the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS), and banking exams, before ultimately passing the Union Public Service Commission’s (UPSC) Civil Services Examination, perfectly captures its meaning. His example of tenacity and grit is incredibly motivating. He kept going despite numerous failures because he was sure that perseverance and hard work would eventually pay off. Aditya received an all-India rank of 630 after passing the UPSC in 2018 (Punjab cadre).
IPS Aditya: Background
In his native Ajeetpura, in the Hanumangarh area of Rajasthan, Aditya received a BA in History, Political Science, and Geography. Like his father, Aditya has a lifelong desire to work for the government. He learned as a child that government employees were the first to help the general public. They are qualified to use their position to influence important societal concerns. In light of this, when he was younger, this aroused his curiosity, and following graduation, he leaned towards it. As the UPSC requirements only permitted applicants to appear for the tests once per year, Aditya planned backup preparations to study for and apply to other competitive exams. This helped him focus on his studies more effectively, which also enhanced his general knowledge and exam-writing abilities.
