For the Failed candidates?

  • One stupid exam is not the end of the world. It cannot become a matter of life and death.
  • If age and attempt left, then prepare for the next exam but WITHOUT repeating the same mistakes that you had made this year.
  • If age and attempt is over, then also my best wishes to you. I am yet to meet a person who remained ‘forever jobless / workless’ even after preparing for UPSC.
