Preparing for exam

After so much of failed attempts, he felt low. It was very saddening that he could not clear IAS mains exam last two times because of this he tried so hard and got cleared.

During interview, which he failed twice, he was asked a question of which pillar of the government worked efficiently then. He replied “executive” because in his ideology, even during the pandemics, executive wing worked well even when legislature was dropping down at back. Considering the COVID-19 fact, he said this. Because he lost two interviews, he wasn’t that confident. He just wanted to clear the examination so he appeared for BPSE (Bihar Public Service Examination).
