New Delhi , Aug 5:
Her two failed attempts did not deter 26-year-old Vishakha Yadav, a software engineer and daughter of a Delhi Police personnel, from attempting the Civil Service examination for the third time. In the results announced on Tuesday, she is the sixth all-India rank holder.
Yadav, daughter of Rajkumar Yadav, who is currently posted as Assistant Sub-Inspector in Delhi Police in Dwarka, said sheappeared for the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) twice before — in 2017 and 2018 — but couldn”t qualify the preliminary exams both the times, leaving her disappointed.
But her two previous failures did not stop her from achieving her goal.
“This was my third attempt and it still hasn’t sunk in that I’m the sixth rank holder,” she told PTI.
Yadav did her software engineering from Delhi College of Engineering in 2014 and took up a job in a firm in Bangalore. After almost 2.5 years, she decided to quit her job and started preparing for the civil service examination. To UPSC aspirants, she strongly recommends that they focus on targets and quality based studying rather than investing long hours.
